Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon - It's Kick-off Time! #TackleTBR

The Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon is hosted by me (Tressa) here at Wishful Endings. It runs for two weeks, in which we all hope to have a blast with challenges, giveaways, and, most importantly, a ton of reading! Share your goals here.


You can sign up to participate through September 23rd. Use the linked list at the end of this post to officially sign up. (If you're having problems with the linky on my page then use this link.) You need to link to wherever you'll be participating from, be it Facebook, Twitter, a blog, etc. If you'll be participating by leaving comments on my blog or using the Goodreads group page, then just leave "Via Comments" or "Goodreads Group" in the URL field instead of a link. I just need to have a complete list of everyone and know where to find you. I like seeing how everyone is doing and what they're reading, as well as giving encouragement as I can. :)

What can you read as part of the read-a-thon? Anything. It can be an audiobook, ebook, physical book, published, ARC, etc. There are no restrictions. The idea is to lower our TBR piles and any way you want to do that is just fine by me.

What are you required to do for the giveaway hosted here? 1. Post a sign-up or state your intent to join somewhere that I can find. It can include goals, but doesn't need to. 2. Post a wrap-up wherever you participate from stating how you did and how much you read. That's it. Participate as much or as little as you'd like otherwise. The goal is to read, read, read!

I will be posting daily updates and you're welcome to leave yours in comments (there will not be a linky for them) so we can all help each other stay motivated and cheer each other on. If you do want to post a daily update, here is a simple template (omit or add things as you like):

We will be using hashtag #TackleTBR on Twitter for updates and tweets. I'd love for you to include me in your tweets too @TresSherm. This is also a great way to find others participating and give some encouragement.
