Down the Read-A-Thon Hole!


Hello! It has been a hot minute since I last did a non-review post, but it’s my goal to make it more of a thing this year!!

I found the Down the Read-A-Thon Hole from Falling Down the Book Hole and just really wanted to participate. I LOVE readathons and they push me to read more throughout the time. I’m excited because this readathon is based off a bingo card and there are challenges for each square :)


WHAT IS THE DOWN THE READ-A-THON HOLE CHALLENGE  ?

The  Down The Read-A-Thon Hole Challenge runs from Thursday, February 1 to Thursday, February 15. During this read-a-thon you will select books to complete a bingo card, with each box earning you points as well as a bingo. In addition to the main challenge, you will have opportunities to earn even more points by participating in the themed bonus challenges using a blog/twitter/instagram.

Read a book that completes the reading challenges to earn an “Alice” bingo. That means 5 in a row either vertically, horizontally or diagonally. Additionally there will be other challenges posted throughout the 2 weeks that will earn you more points.
Each Box: 10pts
Bingo: 50pts
Blog Challenges: 20pts
