Off the Grid Readathon — April 2020

I have been wanting to join readathons again for so long, but work and school didn’t give me enough time to do that. In our current situation, I have lots of time to join readathons again! Yay!

So this weekend, I am joining Shanah of Bionic Book Worm and Justine of I Should Read That for their Off the Grid Readathon. It starts this Friday, April 17 at midnight, and runs through this Sunday, April 19. From Shanah’s Off the Grid Readathon TBR post:

If you haven’t heard of the Off The Grid Readathon before, let me fill you in on the details. This is hosted by myself and Justine from I Should Read That and is a quarterly event. April’s edition will begin this Friday, April 17th as soon as the clock strikes midnight and will end at midnight on Sunday evening. That’s 3 whole days to read!

This is a really low key event. There are no challenges, no buddy reads, no reading sprints – just read when you can and as much as you can. The whole point of this readathon is to stop getting distracted by your phone, tv, etc. and read when you should/could be reading. If you only have 30 minutes of reading time then utilize all of  those minutes! Don’t scroll through twitter for 25 of those minutes and then realize you only have 5 minutes left lol. For more detailed information, check out the announcement post HERE.

I have to go in to work on Friday, but I’ll start reading when I get home. I don’t really have a list of books set up because I’ll just grab whatever strikes my fancy. I’m currently reading Girl, Woman, Other by Bernadine Evaristo for the #sykesandsavidgebookclub, and then I’ll just grab something else from my pile when I’m finished with that. Whenever I set up a TBR pile ahead of time for something like this, I always end up wanting to read something different. Heh.

I’m really looking forward to this, so I’m going to get back to my school work and get it all done so I have the weekend to myself.

Are you joining us for the Off the Grid Readathon this weekend?

  1. Off the grid sounds pretty perfect right now. Friday I have zoom meetings from 9:00am to 3:30pm with no break, which exhausts me just to think about.
