What exactly is a 'Read-a-thon'?

As the name suggests, Read-A-Thon or a RaT is a Reading Marathon! It is basically an encouragement, a pushing force which makes you read more during a particular period than you would have. It's an activity where you set a goal for yourself, and try to complete that goal as quickly as possible.

So, in a read-a-thon, a time limit and a page limit is set. Within that time limit, we try to complete the page/book limit as quickly as possible. The entire point of a read-a-thon is to set high goals for yourself and push yourself to read as much as possible.

For eg, suppose a goal is : 1000 pages, 1 week. Thus, one has to try completing 1000 pages within one week.



Time limit, I set. Page limit, you decide. Every once in a while, I will set up a time limit and post the dates for a particular read-a-thon in this thread itself. All you have to do is decide on a book limit/page limit for yourself and try your best to complete your goals!

Post all queries and suggestions below.

Happy Reading!
