And one last time, this is Kait from Kait Plus Books, here with all the excessive gifs and exclamation points!
How does reading change when we do it together? Whether that means reading the same books or just reading together at the same time (hi readathon!), I think it makes a difference when we know that other people are reading with us.
I love readathons and other social reading because it makes me feel connected to other people. What about you? Do you enjoy the community that comes together for things like Readathon? Or do you just like having an entire day to set everything aside and just read? It could be both! Let me know in the comments and have a happy readathon!
I’m signing off here for the last time (today), but I’ll still be updating my blog and mini game all day! Come visit me and say hi!

What I love about readathons is exactly this thing. Reading with others is encouraging and pleasing.

I agree, although I have to confess that I am pretty lazy with cheering others this time around. And I also refrained from posting about the readathon on Instagram.

I like reading by myself to be honest, but I’ll pop in on social media to encourage others.

I normally read alone, so it is nice to have a readathon like this that brings the readers together, so we feel like a community. I’m also enjoying seeing what everyone is reading.
I love a little of both! Sometimes I want to be shut up in my cozy reading nook with my book and hot cup of tea, I like joining reading groups for readathons, and sometimes it’s fun to have someone join you reading quietly beside you!
We have an excellent book club here in Alvin at the library (or on Zoom). We are celebrating ten years this year.
For me , group activities always inspire me to perform a task better ,whether it be hiking , swimming , reading or cooking lessons . . . I always find myself tuning into the vibes of the group and stay motivated .
