[Book Blogger Hop] August 11th - 17th


Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer, where you answer a question and join a "hop". The purpose is to help bloggers discover and get to know one another. 

For this week's question, Kristin @ Lukten av Trykksverte asks:
Do you participate in readathons and/or reading challenges?


My answer:
I love reading challenges! I have participated in a couple year-long challenges from PopSugar in the past. Then one year, Heather (of Heather's Reading Hideaway) and I created our own reading challenge called the Restricted Section Reading Challenge. I've wanted to participate in smaller challenges, like the Spring Bingo Challenge, but I just haven't had the time this year.

Someday I really hope to participate in a readathon! Unfortunately, every single one that I have been interested in in the past three years have fallen on dates that are already much too busy for me.


Thanks for reading!
What is your favorite reading challenge or readathon? I'd love to hear all about it in the comments section below!

  1. I run into the same challenges with the read-athon too. One of these days I'm determined to make it work!

    I enjoy reading challenges too, although it recent years have had less and less luck with them. I get so excited in the beginning and then lose my enthusiasm as the time progresses. I am not taking part in any challenges this year, although I've had to fight off temptation several times. I'm not sure what I will do next year . . .

    Have a great weekend, Erica!

  3. Time and money are always factors for me. I love the idea of a readathon, but I am yet to participate in one.

  4. I've done a few readathons, I like doing some of the spookier themed ones in October but a few of those have gone by the wayside. And the HoHoHo readathon in November is always fun. I don't do too many challenges but I did three this year, and those have been fun. :)

    Have a great weekend!

  8. I participate in a few readathons, but I haven't done any reading challenges. Are those separate? How do you do a reading challenge while reading? lol I just finished with BooktubeAThon, and I'm currently doing Tome Topple but I use my own books instead of the big books required. #rebel ;)

    1. Reading challenges are more drawn out than readathons. Rather than doing a 24/48 hour or weekend long challenge, it would be more like a month or a full year :)
