I came across another readathon that will be happening from April 7 to April 20 called Tome Topple and focuses on reading those big books on our TBR that keep getting pushed aside because of their size! Now’s your chance to dedicate two weeks to one or some of those books and topple those tomes!
The only rule for this readathon is that the books have to be over 500 pages. Check out Sam over on Thoughts on Tomes for more information.
She will be hosting along with a few others in the book community across formats such as YouTube, Instagram, and Tumblr, so pick your poison and join us! There is also a Goodreads group you can join for book suggestions as well as discussion boards featuring the most widely chosen books that you can participate in. Also follow @tome_topple for updates and use #tometopple to stay involved on Twitter.
There are also a few challenges associated with the readathon that you can keep in mind when selecting your book(s):
- Read more than 1 tome
- Read a graphic novel
- Read a tome that’s part of a series
- Buddy read a tome (use the Goodreads group and Twitter to find buddies)
- Read an adult novel
Feel free to combine challenges using one book to meet more targets!
The only book I will be spending my time on is The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan.
I have been telling my husband for over 10 years now that I will read this and I have yet to do so. I actually made it about 150 pages in last year before I got distracted by other reads, but I’m going to finish it this month! I’ve flagged out exactly how many pages I have to read each day to complete it in the two weeks. It’s definitely not the most inspiring method, but I really want to get this done!
I hope that you will join me in Tome Topple! Let me know in the comments if you plan to participate, what books you’d like to get read, or whether you’d like to buddy read The Eye of the World with me!
