BookTube is a community of people on Youtube who post videos about books and reading, and every summer this community has a seven day read-a-thon (this year from July 24th to July 30th). This year’s challenges are:
- Read a book with a person on the cover.
- Read a hyped book.
- Finish a book in one day.
- Read about a character that is very different from you.
- Finish a book completely outdoors.
- Read a book you bought because of the cover.
- Read seven books.
There are video and Instagram challenges that happen during the week, which I’ve done in the past with mixed success. I think this year I’ll keep an eye on them but only bother with the challenges that really excite me.
It wouldn’t be a Katrina Project if there weren’t a spreadsheet, so here you go:
This spreadsheet shows the breakdown of what I’m reading and my plan for how I’ll pace myself. If you want to do the same you can download a copy of the spreadsheet and make it your own.
Here’s what I’ll be reading:
This is my third year doing the challenge, and hopefully my third success! Seven books sounds like a lot, but remember a book is how you define it. Every year I have at LEAST one book that’s very short, such as a play, graphic novel, or children’s book. If you’re participating this year let me know in the comments, especially if you have an Instagram or Youtube channel I can follow.
Good luck and happy reading!
