August Read-a-thon!

This will start on August 21st (starting at your midnight time zone) and will end on August 25th (ending at your midnight time zone). This will be a prompt related challenge!

The goal is to try and complete all the tasks as a group.

What you need to do in order to participate:
Step 1 - Sign up on this thread!
Step 2 - Post your progress each day in a new post!
Step 3 - Have fun and read lots of good books!

I want fall right now, so we are celebrating all things fall because I AM READY. Each prompt can be used as many times as you’d like, and repeated whenever you want. There are 30 prompts total.

How to post:

Every time you FINISH a book, you will need to make a completion post like so:



Completion Post
Where Dreams Descend (Kingdom of Cards, #1) by Janella Angeles
Prompt: 12. Features Magic

Prompts are in the second comment and I'll be keeping a master list and strike off prompts as they're finished.

Anyone is welcome to join!
