Tome Topple Readathon: November 18th to December 1st

Later this week I’ll participate in my first readathon! It’s probably a tough one to start with because it’s all about those big books (>500 pages). But I figured I might as well join it since there are two books on my Kindle that fit the requirement for the readathon and that I really want to read.

I found this readathon watching Samantha @ThoughtsOnTomes and Adriana @perpetualpages‘s announcement videos, as they are two of the hosts for the event.
Here’s the description on the goodreads group:

The next round of the Tome Topple Readathon will take place from midnight in your time zone on November 18th to 11:59pm in your time zone on December 1st!
The whole point of this readathon is to read big books (over 500 pages). You don’t even need to read a lot of them. You don’t even need to finish one. The point is that we are all reading those big daunting books at the same time and supporting each other.

This group will feature discussion boards about some of the more popular book choices for the readathon, as well as some suggestions for any of you struggling with which tome to read.

Definitely keep in touch using the hashtag #tometopple on all social media and following @tome_topple on twitter.

Topple those Tomes!

They also announced some challenges that might help you decide what books to read or just give you some more motivation:

1. Read more than 1 tome
2. Read a graphic novel
3. Read a tome that’s part of a series
4. Buddy read a tome (use goodreads and twitter to find buddies!)
5. Read an adult novel

Personally I will be fulfilling four out of five of those challenges (provided I can read both books I have in mind), so I’m really excited.

The books I chose are The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch and The Demon King by  Cinda Williams Chima.

If you want to partake in this readathon you should definitely join the goodreads group and make sure you follow the hashtag #tometopple on twitter and instagram so you find other people that read your same book(s).

I really hope I can complete both books in that time. Are you planning on participate? What tomes would you like to topple?

  1. So fun to see other people on the blogs I follow are participating too! How exciting that it’s your first read-a-thon. You sure chose a challenging one! I am pretty bad at read-a-thons but I still keep participating in them, because it’s so much fun.

    Here is my TBR for the Tome Topple:

  2. I’m so excited to do this readathon as well! I have ‘Locke Lamora’ on my shelf, but I don’t think i’ll be picking it up this round. I’m excited to hear what you think of it. My TBR is posted on my blog, but I don’t know if i’ll actually stick to it! Good luck!
