Emily Shaw (emilyshaw16) | 313 comments Hello everyone! I'm here to tell you about an exciting read-a-thon coming up, Cram-a-thon!

This read-a-thon was created by Whitney @ WhittyNovels on YouTube!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEslo...

*INFORMATION*
Dates: December 19 - December 22
Twitter: @CramAThon

*RULES*
There are no specific rules for this read-a-thon. You just want to read as many books as possible in the time period! However, there are several challenges set for the read-a-thon. It is not mandatory to complete any of them, but it adds some fun!

*CHALLENGES*
1. Read an audiobook or ebook
2. Read a bindup
3. Finish a series/read the last book of a series
4. Read a book under 200 pages
5. Finish a book you DNF’ed
6. Read a graphic novel series (or as many graphic novels as you can)
7. Read 5 books total

If you have any questions, please let me know and I'll do my best to help answer them!

Will you be participating in the read-a-thon? Let's start this off and post our TBRs! I'm excited to see what everyone else wants to read :)

Hmmm, I never really thought about joining this Read-A-Thon, but maybe I will.

I'll combine Challenge 1 & 4 by reading the ebook Enslaved By The Alpha: Part VII (it releases the 15th)

For Challenge 3 I'll try to read either: Ignite Me OR The One


I don't know what I'd read for the other challenges right now, will see when the 18th comes around, what books I did not finish by then.

Thanks Robin! Ah I hope you love The One! The Selection series is one of my favorites :)

If you're at all interested in Challenge 6, reading a graphic novel, I'd be happy to suggest some :) just let me know!
