Mythothon TBR

I don’t really participate in a lot of readathons nor make TBRs, but month long ones are always fun because I have more time to read all the books I want to. So, when I saw Louise @ Foxes and Fairytales posting about the Mythothon for the month of November – a greek mythology based readathon where I don’t really have to read mythology based books, I was all ready to jump in. It has just taken me all this time to come up with a loooong TBR which I’m not sure I’ll ever complete.

WHEN?

Sign-ups are open from now until November and will remain open throughout the readathon (latecomers are welcome!).

The readathon itself will run from 1st to the 30th November in your own timezone.

Please feel free to post Twitter updates, reading sprints, Instagram photos or just generally share how you’re getting on with the readathon using the hashtag #mythothon

SIGN-UPS

Create a full or partial TBR on any platform that suits you — YouTube, Twitter, blog post, Goodreads etc. — and use the link-up at the bottom of this page to join up.

RULES

If it can be added on Goodreads, it counts — novellas, graphic novels, audiobooks etc. are all fair game.

Each book only counts for one square — so choose wisely.

Also, please checkout Louise’s original post here for more details about the readathon and the prizes.
