The Off The Grid Readathon was created by Shanah from Bionic Bookworm and is co-hosted by Justine over at I Should Read That–which is where I first heard about this wonderful event! Thanks to these two for creating and running this challenge.
This readathon is quarterly and the first one of the year starts this weekend at midnight on Friday and ends 11:59pm Sunday night. The point is to stay off of your phone and read. If you want the full rules/details, please check out Justine’s post over at I Should Read That. There is a twitter handle for the readathon you can follow and there will be a single twitter chat on Sunday (in the spirit of staying off the grid as much as possible).
To catch up on my ARC’s and Review books I decided to give this a whirl! Conveniently, I also happened to have most of this weekend free (yay!) so I’m blocking out some reading time and going for it! I’ll definitely be participating this quarter and if all goes well and I have some free time next quarter, I’ll probably jump in then too. 🙂
I’m hoping I’ll be able to get through at least three books over the weekend, maybe four if I read like the wind. I’m still coming up with my exact TBR list for the event, but I know pretty much what my top priorities are and that’s what I’ll be pulling from. Hopefully this will help me catch up on things and feel slightly less stressed. I’m excited!
If you don’t have any plans this weekend or even if you want to block out a day or half a day, consider joining in! It should be a fun time reading with little to no distractions.
