  1. I enjoy reading, but I've found myself in a slump and I'm falling behind schedule with my reading, which sucks, so I'm gonna hold a read-a-thon. Whether or not I'll do this once a month or every other month, depends on how this first one goes. If it goes well, I'll make a group to keep all of the challenges, dates for future read-a-thons and other information.

    Before I start talking about the dates and the challenges, what is a read-a-thon?

    A read-a-thon is an event, usually with set times or dates, where you can read more then you would usually do. Some read-a-thons could have challenges and other activities you can do with others to make it more interesting, but the overall goal of the read-a-thon is to help you read more during that time period then you would normally read.
    Easy right? Now to the dates!
    March 27th to March 31st

    The read-a-thon will start this week and will last 5 days. Starting this Friday (March 27th) and ending next Tuesday (March 31st).
    Challenges

    1. Read at least 2 books from your TBR(To Be Read) pile.
    2. Quick updates after every book you read. (Post it here)
    3. Take a photo of your books in random places. *
    Here's an example (open)
