We're kicking off... Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon (Read-a-thon & Giveaway) #TackleTBR

It's officially kick-off time for the Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon!

The whole goal of this read-a-thon is to get books read so we can lower those TBR piles. Are you guys ready to put in some serious reading? Or whatever reading you can get in with all our busy lives? :) I am. I'm about 20 books behind in my Goodreads goal and I've got a ton of books to read and I'm ready to go.

I have a lot of reading to do and I hope to get a lot in in the next two weeks. Here are my goals:

  • Visit each read-a-thon participant
  • Read 100 pages a day and a total of at least ten books

I posted this earlier this month on Instagram and these are basically the books I'll be pulling from, except what I've already read (only five of these), of course.

Now link up your goals, if you'd like:

Make sure you sign up in the linky below. To enter the main giveaways, you must be signed up here and also link up a wrap-up post at the end of the RAT.


As long as you sign up in the linky and post a final update (that you also link up), you're eligible for these. I will also have a challenge giveaway for the challenges I'll be hosting that will post tomorrow with my first challenge, so look for that.
