#BFRaT: Black Friday Read-a-Thon Announcement

» 16 November, 2016 » Blogging, Other Posts » 4 comments

Have you guys heard about this read-a-thon yet?? It’s a 24 hour read-a-thon taking place on Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving in the US – November 25th). This read-a-thon is hosted by Amber @ Du Livre and Mocha Girls Read. Find out more about the read-a-thon here!

I LOVED the idea for this as soon as I saw it. Maybe it’s because I’m an introvert, but the idea of actually going out and shopping on Black Friday is terrifying. I don’t usually go shopping unless I’m trying to get something specific or I’m shopping online. That’s why when I saw Amber’s announcement, I fell in love with the idea! Spending a day cozied up with a book instead of fighting the crowds sounds like heaven. It’s exactly the way I want to spend the day after Thanksgiving. Plus, maybe I’ll spend less money this way 😛

As far as a TBR or a goal for the read-a-thon – I think I’m going to try something I haven’t tried before! Instead of choosing a TBR or making a book related goal for the read-a-thon, I’m making a goal of reading for 8 hours out of the 24 hours. I’m making reading my “job” for Black Friday! 🙂 I’ve never done an hourly goal for a read-a-thon and I think this will be fun!

      I ended up doing pretty well but not quite making my goal unfortunately. I loved doing a time related goal this time so I’m definitely going to try that again sometime. Staying home every Friday would so be AMAZING! An extra day to get caught up on reading and blogging.
