October 22, 2022 READATHON HQ!

Welcome to the October 22, 2022 Readathon! This is our virtual headquarters for all things Readathon, though in all honesty, you’ll probably spend your time elsewhere during the event. Like Twitter, Instagram, or maybe under a blanket with your cat? We love all those options!

As the Readathon has aged (like a fine wine…or cheese!) distinct communities of readers have grown on individual social platforms. Check out these locations online for all the latest and greatest happenings and a whoooole lot of bookish chatter:

Looking for a different platform? Check out the master list.

  20. Closing Survey:
    Reading overall: I feel pretty good about it. I started and finished two books and one graphic novel during the readathon, finished one I had started before and got pretty far into an audio book

    My strategy was to read stuff I wanted to read and listen to my audiobook when doing chores, walking around and taking only a very short time to do hourly photos, not thinking about them too much.

    Favorite snack: spinach dip and triscuits – and that meant I ate some leftovers.
