🎵 It’s the most wonderful time of the year… 🎵
#BTAT2018 is here, and I am so excited to be able to participate again this year! If you haven’t heard of the BookTube-A-Thon before (umm, where have you been? You’ve been missing out on so much bookish fun!), it’s a week-long read-a-thon* hosted by the fabulous Ariel Bissett on YouTube. It initially started out on BookTube but has made its way out into the bookish Twitter and Instagram communities. Challenges are created, sprints take place, prizes are given, and fun is had! If you want to learn more about all the ways you can join, watch the video and go check out @BookTubeAThon on all your social media!
*read-a-thon (n.): an event online where a large group of book lovers get together and try to read as many books as possible in a predetermined amount of time
Challenges and My TBR:
Every year during BTAT, Ariel issues seven different challenges that all the participants can try to complete. Last year I was successful in completing all seven, so this year I am going to try and defend my title of “BOOKTUBE-A-THON CHAMPION” (self-appointed, of course). This year’s challenges are:
Be sure to check out my Twitter and Instagram (@the_bookinsider) throughout the week for my participation in challenges and sprints. Also, let me know if you are planning on participating this year in the comments along with your handle so I can follow your progress throughout the week!
