Hi everyone! Guess what… I’m participating in my first ever readathon. It’s The Coffee Readthon hosted by Haley @ The Caffeinated Reader and Jayati @ The Coffee Addicted Bibliophile.

I was inspired to try this readathon as the prompts would encourage me to read books I wouldn’t usually read. The funny thing is though…. I don’t even like coffee.

The Details

Dates: September 1 – 30

What you have to achieve: 7 books for each of the 7 coffee inspired prompts. For each completed coffee you get a stamp on your rewards card. Yes, A REWARDS CARD!! There also 3 bonus coffees that aren’t essential but if you want a bit of a challenge can so these to. You also receive a badge for your blog.

You want to join too? There is a form to sign up here.

Where can I follow the readathon? Check it out at IG @thecoffeereadathon. You can follow my readthon updates right here on matfiction.home.blog.

Matfiction’s Escapades:

I have signed up for both sets, the 7 cups of coffee + the 3 bonus cups!!! Ahhhh!! I felt the bonus coffee prompts where more up my alley so that’s why I did that. When I have sussed which books will be my TBRs I will put up a post up sharing what I aim to fill the coffee prompts!
