Readathon Frenzy!!

Hello Everyone -

I am so excited to take part in THREE readathons that are overlapping next week! The first is Book Tube-a-thon. The second is the Biannual Bibliothon. And I am taking part in an International Buddy-a-thon. There is no way I can do all of the challenges for one, much less for all three. I always have high hopes but I read less than a quarter of what most BookTuber's read during readathons so I will do my best. I will have a lot of overlapping challenges. I have posted them below. There are also a lot of books that fit many challenges. It seems like every book I wanted to pick had a person on the cover. :)  Wish me luck -- this is such an ambitious TBR!
If  you want more information for the readathons, I have included that too!

Also, Hardbackhoarder on YouTube created an AWESOME google doc to share for tracking Book tube-a-thon here - check her out on YT here: Hardbackhoarder
