A lot of you book bloggers may already know about the upcoming Sunathon which has been organised by a fellow book blogger. I am very excited for this readathon as it is my first! I know, I know what on earth have I been up to until now? Mostly busy with university, gaining work experience and squeezing in book reviews, the usual ;). This is the first readathon that I’ve come across which is available to anyone and everyone. You don’t have to be a book blogger to take part, all you need is a bit of love for reading, perfect!
So what exactly will be happening during the Sunathon? Well hear it from the words of the organiser:
From the 21st to the 27th July, book bloggers from all around the world will be taking part in #sunathon. What is #sunathon? Created by Emma Louise (@EmmaIsWriting), for that particular week in the gorgeous sun (or rain in you’re in the UK), we’re going to read. It doesn’t matter how much you read, as long as you make time for reading. There are a lot of people around the world who are blind to the magical world of books and it’s a shame. More of us should read. I’ve decided to make it a full week: Monday-Sunday because a lot of book bloggers have full time jobs and they squeeze reading in between. I’ve made it longer just for them.
Use #sunathon to follow book bloggers around the world talking about it. It doesn’t matter whether you’re in the UK, or America, or Malaysia or Germany – it’s about us all coming together to read.
Make sure you follow each other, cheer one another on. Who knows maybe next year, we’ll be back? You can tweet along your book journey and at the end of it all, blog about what you read and what you’re going to read next.
There you have it folks!
What will I be reading for the Sunathon?
Well it was really difficult to try and choose some books and I constantly changed my mind. Plus I’ll be busy most of the week so I thought it would be sensible of me to only pick out two books. Eventually I decided on two books that I have been waiting to read for ages and are, in my opinion, the perfect summer reads.
Hope you all have a funtastic Sunathon! 🙂
