Hello, hello, hello! Yes, you read that correctly—The Make Me Read It Read-A-Thon is back for 2016 *cue screaming* If you didn’t know, the gorgeous Val (The Innocent Smiley) and I ran this read-a-thon this time last year (back when I was on a different blog), and by popular demand (okay, it was like one person) we bought it back again. Just like last year we will be using the hashtag #MakeMeRead on Twitter and Instagram.
So, how does this work?
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 etc. to vote on which books you HAVE to read.
When the read-a-thon 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 happening?
The read-a-thon will take place from the 9th to the 16th of July in your timezone. You can start anytime you want on the 9th, so just fit it around whatever works for you! As for the voting, that’s up to you too! Just remember to link your post/photo/video/tweet in the linky at the end of this post so everyone can vote on it!
Now for the best part—Michelle and I’s polls! NOW CLOSED.
Let us know in the comments what you voted for and why, if you like. Or declare your eternal love for Val and I for hosting Make Me Read again…whatever floats your boat.
