Hi guys! It’s officially spring. There is still snow on the street and the wind is still freaking cold but at least the sun is shining. I bought some tulips today to „celebrate“ the first day of spring. Yey! Anyway, I’m here to share with you this exciting read-a-thon that I’ll be joining for the next three months.
A few days ago, my dear friend Sarah (from BooksForTea) announced on her youtube channel that she will be hosting a seasonal read-a-thon together with other three lovely readers and I didn’t have to think twice about joining. It’s called #SeasonalSeries Read-A-Thon and it runs from March 20 through June 20. It is hosted by Sarah, Derby from Derby_Lane Reading, Reggie from Don’t Stop Readin’, and Bridget from bBooks.
This read-a-thon focuses on reading/finishing books in a series and it is themed around the yearly seasons. There are four bingo cards/boards that you can choose from depending what season you have right now where you live but of course you can choose whatever season you prefer. There will be reading sprints every Saturday and daily sprints from June 11 to 17. To make this read-a-thon more exciting, there will be huge giveaway at the end of the read-a-thon. You can read the full details here and follow their official Twitter account for updates.
I will be doing the Spring Bingo board and here are the challenges:
1. take a walk while listening to an audiobook
2. read a book while drinking lemonade
3. read the first book in a series
4. try to unhaul a book you’ve lost interest in
