Day One: Winter Biannual Bibliathon

Day One: Winter Biannual Bibliathon

Yesterday was the first of seven days in the Winter Biannual Bibliathon and, despite it being a rather busy day, I got off to a pretty good start. My chosen starting book was Soundless by Richelle Mead (author of the Vampire Academy series). This was the group book for the read-a-thon and the only specific book I’m being challenged to read this week. I aimed to finish it in the first 24 hours and am please to say that I accomplished just that. Read more

The Winter Biannual Bibliathon

The Winter Biannual Bibliathon

I have decided to take part in the Winter Biannual Bibliathon being hosted on YouTube. It is a seven day read-a-thon (Sunday 3rd January – Saturday 9th January) that consists of a series of reading and video challenges. I will just be doing the reading challenges and plan to post daily about my progress.

The Challenges

  1. Read the group book – Soundless by Richelle Mead
  2. Read a book that has been on your shelf for over a year
  3. Read a book with more than 300 pages
  4. Read a book from your favourite genre
  5. Reread a book from a favourite series
  6. Judge a book by its cover
  7. Read a book that has been recommended to you more than once

I thought these challenges looked fun and were easily doable and so I set to the exciting challenge of picking out my books.
