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.
The Make Me Read It Read-a-Thon will start at 8am on July 20th and end at 12am on July 27th. The reason we have it starting at 8am rather than 12am is because 1) Ely said so, so blame her (HA just kidding), and so that readers that sleep early (me) don’t have to miss too much of the read-a-thon! And then it ends on 12am because I said so. But the important point is that it’s for A WEEK!
Since this is an interactive read-a-thon, there is about a month to get some kind of initial post/photo/video/etc. where your readers can vote for which book you read! You can either have a poll, or just rely on the comments, have votes count more than once, honestly this is all up to you! If you plan to participate, make sure you have all your books ready for July 20th!
WE HAVE A TAG. If you’re on Instagram or Twitter, our tag will be #MakeMeRead!

This couldn’t have come at a better time since I have nothing planned for that week to read. (gasp!) Here at the books I am considering…
