It’s June 1st, friends, and it’s the start of the awesome awesome Marvela-thon hosted by Jamieson, who you can check out here. The last time I joined a readathon was ages ago, and to be honest I don’t usually finish! 🙂 But this time I needed a push in my reading because I haven’t been reading in the last couple of months. So what better way to be pushing yourself than by joining a readathon, right?
In summary, this readathon is composed of three phases: you start with phase one and you can’t go to the next unless you finish all challenges in the pase you are in. It’s not super strict, though, as we’re given two skips per phase (a total of 6 for the whole readathon!). I swear I’m definitely gonna be using all my SKIPS! I’m a slow reader! Ha ha!
I admit this is going to be one hell of a challenge because unlike other readathons, you cannot use a book for multiple challenges. Yah, you can’t get “smart” this time. 😉
