Bookish New Year's Challenge Day 8

Bookish New Year's Challenge Day 8

Today is day 8 of the 2020 Bookish New Year’s Challenge created by Tabatha at Broken Soul Reviews. I skipped yesterday’s due to a total lack of awareness of book-to-movie adaptations in 2019 (and being unaware of the alternate topic of bookish confessions), since I generally don’t watch many movies at all. I’m also a strong believer that movies are NEVER* better than the book anyway (*the only exception being the Lord of the Rings movies, which were only palatable to me in movie form, and I couldn’t get into the books at all). It did give me the opportunity to post a book review though, since I have a few to catch up on anyway.

Today’s topic is about readathons: yes or no, whether I participated in any in 2019, and whether I plan to participate in any in 2020.

I actually had to look up what a readathon is for this post. *hides in shame*

So I guess that makes it fairly obvious that I did not, in fact, participate in any readathons in 2019. However, I would be open to participating in 2020 as long as I found one that was interesting to me.

What are your thoughts on readathons?
