Check out the intro pages (Val’s or Ely’s) and the rules below:

Look at the books you own, either physical, e-book or ones you’ve borrowed from the library and pick out a few you really want to read, or feel like you should read. It’s up to you how many you pick, personally I’d pick a few more than you expect to be able to read in a week. Example: if you think you’ll only read two, pick out five books or if you think you can read seven, pick out ten.

Make a list of these books on your blog, or make a video, or a Goodreads shelf or post a picture on Instagram—whatever is easiest for you. Then get friends, other bloggers/booktubers etc. to vote on which books you HAVE to read.

When the read-a-thon comes along, you read the books in the order of most votes. For example, if one book gets 10 votes—you read that first, then the one that got 7 and so on. If there’s a tie, then it’s your preference. The goal is to read as many as possible.

Votes have been tallied – here are the results!

The read-a-thon is starting TOMORROW and I cut off voting a few days ago, so I could prepare myself (and this post, lol). Here are the books I’ll be reading in rank order. As the rules suggest, you read the books in order of most votes; the book with the highest number gets read first, and so on. Since the read-a-thon goes for a week, I decided to show the top 8 books that got voted for. By no means do I think I’ll read 8 books in 7 days, but there are a few books that tied in votes… It’s nice to have some flexibility on their order! Realistically I’ll probably get to maybe 4 books?
