Running a Readathon #1

Since I’m running this event for the first time I thought why not write a few posts tracking it? I’m writing this one now, I’ll post something closer to the time as we’re coming up to last minute prep – including my own TBR – as well as posts during the event and after.

This isn’t the first online event I’ve run. It’s not even the first one this year – I’m running a themed week in a fandom I’m a member of that’s happening this week- but it is the first time I’ve done something bookish.

And I’m super excited.

This idea actually started when I saw there was an Animal Crossing readathon and I told my bestie who enjoys the games and reading. Her response was wondering if there were any Fire Emblem ones as we were both playing Three Houses at the time. The answer was no and we started randomly discussing prompts.

I thought over the idea and wasn’t sure I could do it.

After participating in a chat with Jade and G from UK Booktube I asked about running readathons as I know they both have. And they both said just make it something you want to do and go for it. So I have. Though I did have to ask Jade to retweet my posts so the information was a little better spread XD.

I made the graphics myself. They’re fairly simple but because of that I was able to make them from scratch. Got the posts on social media and now I’m just…trying to spread the word.

I’m so excited for this guys and I hope you are too!
