Library-a-thon Wrap Up

Library-a-thon is finished and surprisingly enough, I actually managed to get to some of my library books and, even more astonishing, they were books on my TBR. Of course I did get confused with the dates so I thought the readathon was still running yesterday (Sunday) so we’re still counting them.

This readathon ran from the 3rd June to the 9th June (though I accidentally did it to the 10th) and I read five library books for this challenge. As always, all covers link to Goodreads.

Library-a-thon

Library-a-thon is a readathon based around books you borrow from your library. This is very similar to Borrowathon but I still have far too many library books at the moment. It runs from the 3rd June to the 9th June and of course it has challenges!

 

Challenges

  • Borrow and read a book set in a country that you’ve never read a book set in before.
  • Borrow and read a book that you’ve never heard of before.
  • Borrow and read a book that’s out of your comfort zone (genre, age group, themes, et cetera).
  • Borrow and read a book that you’ve been meaning to read, but haven’t gotten around to yet.
  • Borrow and read a book recommended by a librarian or other library staff member.
  • Borrow and read a bookish book (book on the cover, “book” in the title, a book about books…).

Readathon Wrap Ups

Now I was very short-sighted and signed up to do three readathons in the same week. I am terrible with dates and didn’t realise they all overlapped until I signed up for them. I have decided to do one wrap up for all three, partly because I really can’t be bothered to do three separate wrap ups when I could be reading and partly because there is some overlap. I read ten books last week, so not everything on my TBR but since my TBR was ridiculous, I’m okay with the books I did manage to read. Most of the links to the books link to my review of that book on Goodreads.

The three readathons I did last week were Read-O-Rama ReadathonLibrary-a-thon and Because Dragons Readathon.

Library-a-thon

This is a readathon which is going on at the same time as the Read-o-Rama readathon and overlaps with the Because Dragons RAT so it runs from 11th June to 18th June. Is it a good idea to do this readathon as well? Probably not, but I have a lot of library books that have to go back by the 17th June so I might as well read them for a readathon.

Challenges 

1) Borrow and read a popular or backlist book you meant to read but never got around too.
2) Borrow and read a book by a popular author you’ve been curious to try or read more of.
3) Borrow and read a book you haven’t heard of before seeing it in the library.
4) Borrow and read a book recommended by the librarian.
5) Borrow and read a book you just feel like reading.
