Tomorrow is the first day of the Biannual Bibliothon for Winter 2018 … so if you haven’t made your list yet, you best get started!! The Biannual Bibliothon is something I participate in every year, twice a year actually (or you could say “biannually”. Wow I’m so funny), and to be honest I almost forgot about it this year. Thank goodness it popped into my brain at about 10:30pm last night, I had to prepare.
While I have ideas in my brain about which ones will work for two (in case in ends up being a really busy week – which it always does on readathon week!), I’m fairly sure that the under 200 pages challenge will flop. I will most likely end up reading a children’s book while my niece is over and have it count.
Did you know that it is impossible to find a book under 200 pages??? Even the really small books on my shelves are over!! Grrrr …. I had no idea how small 200 pages really was. I got really excited a few times when I saw a really thin volume that was, yes, under two hundred pages (!!) … only to then realize that it was an excerpt from a book that I picked up at some author event or convention. Grrrr …
If you don’t know what the hell I’m talking about, the Biannual Bibliothon is a reading challenge that outlines seven different challenges for you to complete. It runs from January 20-26th, with a live show discussing the group read on January 27th via the Biannual Bibliothon channel. Click here for the reading challenge announcement video (or you can just keep reading). We like reading challenges / readathons because it brings us together as a book community, lets us reading more books, weaken our TBRs and bring us to tears of frustration and grief because we don’t really have time for reading what are we doing with our lives OMG. But it’s fun, join us.
1. Read the Group Book
2. Read a sequel
3. Read a book you’ve never heard of
4. Read about mental illness
5. Read a book mentioned in a book/movie/TV show
6. Read a book under 200 pages
Thank goodness I got this in an Owlcrate… I have no books under 200 pages!
Side note: Will probably end up reading a children’s book instead
7. Read a backlist title (published before 2017)
