Friday Reads does Tome Topple 4: Sign Up, and TBR

I love me a good readathon, and folks, there’s a curling one coming up.  It’s time for Tome Topple, the readathon when bibliophiles like myself get all of our biggest books and attempt to read/weight lift these tomes together. It’s my second Tome Topple readathon, and last time (click here to view my posts from last time) I managed to read a couple of long books that I’d been meaning to for a while, so I’ve eyed up some longer books to go on my Tome Topple TBR. 

So, what is it? Well, Tome Topple is a two week readathon created by Sam aka Thoughts on Tomes and this time the readathon is taking place from midnight in your timezone on 4th August until 11:59pm on 17th August. The aim of this readathon is to read big books, aka books over 500 pages aka “tomes”, so unlike many readathon, it’s about the number of pages in a book rather than the quantity of books you manage to finish over the fortnight. Want more information, you can watch Sam’s announcement video or check out the readathon Twitter page and/or the Goodreads group.

April: It’s a Wrap

Look, Look, I am actually posting a wrap post on time. What is happening in the world?! I have gotten back into a real reading, reviewing, and blogging routine at points of this month, which is probably why I remembered this so quickly!

OK, so this month that number/volume of reviews is going to be quite a lot shorter than usual. That said, I am still pretty pleased with my progress because I have finished some books that have been on my currently reading list for literally months, and I have read a lot of long books. I completed the Tome Topple readathon this month, the point of which is to read books over 500 pages together, so the fact I have actually managed to read 6 books this month is pretty good going.

Tome Topple Readathon | Updates

As you may have seen from my earlier TBR post, and my twitter account, I have decided to take part in this month’s Tome Topple Readathon. To monitor my own progress, and keep all you lovely people up to date, I am going to post regularly (ish) here!*

For those of you who don’t know much about this awesome readathon, check out the dedicated Goodreads or Twitter. A brief overview, over the next 2 weeks, the aim is to tackle and read as many books over 500 pages as time and sanity allows!

Tome Topple Takedown TBR

Another month, another readathon, and this time it’s a big one! Yes, it is Tome Topple Time! We all look at big books and find them a little daunting, and a lot less appealing to haul down off the shelves and read. So, to battle that, we take on these beasts together, and tackle the 500+ page books that have scared us off before (or that we just feel like taking on now!)  Whether you read 5 pages, or 5 books, it’s all about tackling those bigger books and have a laugh taking part!

The next round of the Tome Topple Readathon will take place from midnight in your time zone on April 7th to 11:59pm in your time zone on April 20th! Tome Topple Takedown can be found at the Goodreads group handily titled Tome Topple Readathon page, and any progress, updates, or titbits can also be found at the twitter handle @Tome_Topple, so why not join in to?
