Very last minute, about a week before the readathon I decided to sign up to cheer because it looked like fun and the post said it was fine if you could only cheer for an hour or so. I had no idea that I would have as much fun as I did.
Here are some of the reasons I loved it:
- Because of the absolutely lovely, fantastic, beautiful, wonderful people that I cheered for and chatted with. Don’t believe me? Check out some of these fab tweets.
- Because as one tweet mentions above, the sense of community. One of the things I love about book blogging is people in the community and this is one of the times I have been able to see that community so clearly.
- I was encouraged by others to really get stuck into reading Carry On and managed to get 200+ pages read in quite a short amount of time which I was pleased with. Otherwise, I probably wouldn’t have squeezed some reading into my weekend.
- I learnt some Swedish. Check it out! Du kan klara det – You can do it and jag älskar böcker – I love books.
Overall, I just had a great time and can’t wait for next time. Thank you so much to everyone who organised it! I would definitely recommend everyone take part.
