Hiya!! Welcome to our first ever, readathon!!

A Brief
This Readathon is a step towards accomplishing reading goals! It will be held monthly with different themes (a.k.a. genres). You will read books under that theme. And there will be prizes for the one who wins.

Rules:
• This month's theme is: Adventure.
• To join, just comment " I'm in!" . Also include the number of books as your goal.
• No penalties would be chanced if you go over or under your goal; it's just for determination.
• This readathon will start from September 1, ending on September 30.
• You have plenty of time to sign up! You can still sign up after the challenge has started.
• Points will be given according to the number of pages in the most rated edition of the book. They are mentioned below.
• You need to review a book properly with your opinions for the book to be counted.
• Buddy Reads are possible, but only within this group. Invite your teen friends if you like! You can put up a Buddy Request here.
The person who gets the most points wins and gets a PDF book and a badge!

Oh, you don't need to stress out. It's okay if you go under or over your goal!

My TBR:
5 books! (I´ll probably go over but ya)
Question: Do they all have to be adventure books? Do I get write down what books I read when I finish them and put them on a topic?"


Got you in! No, all don't have to be an adventure, but at least one book. To post your books, go to this link: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
