My partner and I were looking for a readathon to participate in this month and we came across Readathin, a readathon to “thin” out your TBRs.
The basic idea of this readathon is to not buy any new books and instead to focus on the books we already own and want to read. It’s a very chill event so there aren’t any points, strict rules, or prizes involved, but there is a bingo board!
The way that I’ll be using this board is I’m not allowing any myself any doubling up. So if I want to blackout the board–which is my goal–I’ll have to read at least 22 books this month. I planned most of them out but some squares (morning reading and read 4 books) haven’t been decided yet.
Here’s what I have planned. I’ve crossed out the ones that I’ve already finished reading this month since I’m posting this TBR a bit late. If you have any questions about what these prompts mean, you can check out their linktree on the Readathin twitter page!
