TBR Takedown 5.0: TBR

Another week, another readathon. Another new readathon in fact! This time, I am tackling the TBR Takedown, a new readathon on my list, on that the lovely Emma told me about. It is a low-key readathon held by Shannon from leaninglights (her YouTube & Twitter) and this round, TBR Takedown 5.0, will start at midnight on Monday 6th February and run through until 11:59pm on Sunday 12th. Yes, it may be low-key, but there are a couple of challenges to help you on your way, and prioritise your reading, so I’m going to try and incorporate my reading!

For more information, or to read/tweet along once it gets started, see the readathon Twitter. Continue reading “TBR Takedown 5.0: TBR”

January: It’s a Wrap

Can you believe that we are already at the end of January? No, neither can I. I feel like 2017 is disappearing in front of my eyes. Not that I am wasting it. Well, not completely wasting it. It just seems to be disappearing very quickly. Before you know it the Christmas decorations will be back out (I say this like ours are completely away….). I welcomed the year with some pretty hefty resolutions (see here). I’m not going to lie, a lot aren’t going to great, but we have 11 more months to sort those ones out. But some are going well, mainly the reading ones! Continue reading “January: It’s a Wrap”

24 in 48 Readathon: Wrap

24in48The idea of the 24 in 48 readathon is simple and awesome. I love the idea, and one weekend it will fall when I am able to complete it. Unfortunately, this weekend was not it. I was in work, which is naturally removing vast amounts of reading time. I am tired from the copious amounts of overtime I am doing, and I was generally weary. I needed some time to just, well, do nothing, y’know? Continue reading “24 in 48 Readathon: Wrap”

24 in 48 Readathon

24in48So…..there is this readathon on all weekend. A readathon that I’ve never heard of, but that Emma was participating in, so I thought I would give it a go. It is called 24 in 48, and it is pretty simple really: Try to read for 24hrs in a 48hr period this weekend. Seems easy enough to attempt, if you have the weekend off and stuff. But no, no way, I didn’t take this on sitting at home enjoying a weekend off, I’ve done it on a weekend where I am in both days for a full shift. Well….gotta love a challenge!
