In 2020, I am reading my backlist with #StartOnYourShelfathon!

Hello friends, today I am announcing that I am participating in, yes, another readathon! Earlier this week I posted about my participation in the Pondathon and don’t think I am done just yet! I have another announcement planned for later – probably next week – and I am very motivated!
The readathon has been going for over a month now and I have participated since day 1 so far! I just hadn’t officially announced it on my blog as I was on hiatus here and only just started rolling back in.

This readathon actually came as an unexpected blessing. See, I plan on reading all – okay, most – of the unread books I own during 2020 and what do you know? CW crafted a yearlong readathon just for doing this. How cool is that?
So what’s my TBR? All books I owned before the start of 2020. I put them all – I am not sure actually – books I own, both physical and digital, into a separate shelf on Goodreads I conveniently names ‘Startonyourshelf‘.

I am planning on buying a bullet journal somewhere next week and keep track of my reading and readathons like that. Honestly, I am just excited to draw some stars, don’t @ me. I also plan on writing an update post every now and then, or posting about it on Instagram

What is #StartOnYourShelfathon?

#StartOnYourShelfathon is a 2020 star-themed readathon hosted and run by CW from The Quiet Pond. The aim of #StartOnYourShelfathon is to read as many unread books on your bookshelf as you can between December 13th 2019 and December 31st 2020.

#StartOnYourShelfathon isn’t an ordinary readathon too! The mascot of #StartOnYourShelfathon is Castor the Star Collector who is also a sloth friend of The Quiet Pond, who has lost all the stars he has collected over the years and needs your help to find them again.

For every book that you read as part of #StartOnYourShelfathon, you collect a star that you can add the star to your ‘star map’. Read books, collect stars, give yourself an amateur star-collector name, and create constellations! You can read Castor’s story and find information about and resources for the readathon here.

  1. I am so far behind on my review list, I should add them to this readathon. My holiday break went totally off the rails. I didn’t get to have Christmas with the family at home until mid January. So I’m just now starting all my new year planning, I’m looking forward to following your progress.

  2. Ohh I get the feeling of being weeks behind (though you are literally!) And yes, this readathon is perfect motivation to get through your TBR and reviews!


  3. If I didn’t have SO MANY ARCs right now (my priority for 2020 is get my butt into line with these) I would be jumping on this readathon asap. Hope you have fun though!
