Book Riot Read Harder

I absolutely love a good readathon or year long reading challenge, and in the past I have given the Book Riot Read Harder challenge a cursory go. In previous years I have struggled completing many of the challenges, and have quickly lost energy and motivation. I often found that I was trying to complete the challenges for the sake of it, and not because I actually enjoyed reading the books that fit. I looked at the 2018 list at the beginning of January and just felt that this year it was more manageable, and so I set about attempting to do what I have always failed to do before, and ‘read harder’.

Howdy folks, and welcome! Welcome to Liz tracks her progress with Around the Year in 52 books in a public place!

24in48 Readathon | Updates

Hello fellow book lovers! Welcome to the world of 24in48, where there will be updates and reading abound (hopefully), snacking (definitely), and lots of chillaxing with a good book.

So with that in mind, what is it, how does it work, and who created this? Well, 24 in 48 has all the details, but simply, track reading as much as you can with the aim of it being 24hrs in 48hrs over the weekend. Itโ€™s low key, with few rules and even less pressure. You can read more, you can read less, itโ€™s up to you. Once youโ€™ve committed, sign up and track your own/other progress all over the internet.

In previous attempts, I’ve stuck to my own timezone, but I’m not so sure that’s a good idea this year, so, I think I’m going to shake it up a little bit this time, and do it on Eastern Time. I’ve always thought it best to do it on my own time, but I don’t want to miss out on the challenges, and it makes it easier to follow ‘hour 1, hour 2…’. We’ll see how it goes.

#TheReadingQuest: Progress Updates

Last week I signed up and started #TheReadingQuest (my sign up post can be found here). I committed to taking part in the readathon over the next month, and after a week have realised that I need a post to keep track of my progress! There is a set of rules, challenges, and scoring systems that can be found on #TheReadingQuest sign up post, and also on my original TBR post. So, in an effort to take part and track my progress, I’m creating a master post to track my scores throughout this readathon.
