Get reading for winter!

It’s winter and many of us are in some form of lock down so what better time to catch up on some reading!  happy reader with a book graphic

I have just placed an order for some books with Book Depository and discovered they are running a read-a-thon. So in case it inspires you to read, or gives you some motivation to try some different books, I thought I’d share the idea here.

Basically, they are giving some ‘rules’ to guide your reading between 23 and 30 August:

  1. Read a book that was released in 2021
    I think I might try Before she disappeared or Apples never fall
  2. Read a book with an LGBTQIA+ character
    For something different, how about Santa’s husband?
  3. Read a prizewinning book
    No Friend But the Mountains: Writing from Manus Prison by Behrouz Boochani is a good one to try, as is Taboo by Kim Scott
  4. Read the first book in a series
    I found Shatter by Michael Robotham an edge-of-your-seat thriller
  5. Read a book inspired by women
    The first to come to mind for me is I am Malala, followed by The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
  6. Read a book that has been featured on our blog
    The book thief is one of these, and I enjoyed reading that
  7. Read a book that will help you fulfill a resolution or a goal
    If growing your business is a resolution or goal for you, you may like to read my Breadmaker review. Or maybe your goal is to gain and retain more customers.

 

Which rule will you chose for the read-a-thon? I’d love to hear what books you read and what you think of those books, too.
