Hey y’all! Happy MLK Day for all my friends in the states. The first official Haitian Readathon has come to an end and I feel pretty good about how much I read and did. I was one of the hosts and I also ran the Instagram page so that left me super busy these past couple weeks.
I read four books by Haitian authors during the first two weeks of January. Here’s what I read and a few of my thoughts:
Hey y’all, I wanted to get this out while everything is still fresh. This year’s Reading Rush was definitely the most productive one I’ve done. I got through 7 and a half books and I participated in most of the Instagram challenges. I even won a prize!
BookTube-Athon is now The Reading Rush and I honestly like the change. I totally forgot it was this week until I saw all the TBRs popping up on my feed. I decided to join the bandwagon and post my own TBR.
Check out this cool video for a breakdown of The Reading Rush.
There’s also a website this year where you can sign up, track your pages read, and earn cool badges. Add me on the website if you’re doing the challenge, too. I love seeing everyone’s progress and I’m sure we could motivate each other to keep going.
I just started using the cloudLibrary app and there are a ton of great (and free!) audiobooks there. Some of the books there were also published recently, so I’m definitely excited to finally get to reading these. All you need for the app is a library card.
