I first saw this over at Aimal @ Bookshelves & Paperback’s blog and knew it’d be a good way for me to maybe read a book or two. I need help and thought this would be a good way…I hope. Wish me luck!
There will be a poll at the end of the post. Please check them out!
What is #MakeMeRead?
Look at the books you own, either physical, e-book or ones you’ve borrowed from the library and pick out a few you really want to read or feel like you should read. It’s up to you how many you pick, personally, I’d pick a few more than you expect to be able to read in a week. Example: if you think you’ll only read two, pick out five books or if you think you can read seven, pick out ten.
Make a list of these books on your blog, or make a video, or a Goodreads shelf or post a picture on Instagram—whatever is easiest for you. Then get friends, other bloggers/booktubers/bookstagrammers etc. to vote on which books you HAVE to read.
When the readathon comes along, you read the books in the order of most votes. For example, if one book gets 10 votes—you read that first, then the one that got 7 and so on. If there’s a tie, then it’s your preference. The goal is to read as many as possible.
When is it?
This year the read-a-thon will be running from August 6th through to August 13th. You can start reading as soon as it hits 12am in your time zone, or whenever you’d like.
Remember that the idea is to have people vote on your books, so try and get that post/Twitter poll/photo up as soon as possible in order to give your fellow participants the chance to vote!
So, I went on and try to find some books that I know I would read but I still need to finish some books that I have started so I thought to put up four books and see where it would go. I won’t be able to read all of these books but I will read first two books, maybe three that got the most votes. You will find out the results in my Wrap Up & TBR post at the end of July.
