Round 2 of Cosmo Readathon is finished! This readathon ran from the 19th March to the 25th March. The Goodreads is here and the twitter is here. This readathon is good because there was a lot of discussion on Goodreads during it (though I manage to miss it right at the start of this readathon).

Cosmo Readathon Wrap Up

Some day soon I will get the hang of starting and finishing a readathon at the right time. I find readathons that run Monday-Sunday a lot easier to keep track of than readathons that run Sunday-Saturday. Long story short, I started the Cosmo Readathon on Monday and finished yesterday. It was still the same length of time, just moved backwards a day.

My TBR for this readathon is here
