Make Me Read It Readathon 2016 Voting

      I participated in "Make Me Read It" last year, and honestly, this year I wasn't going to participate because with my summer program, I wasn't sure how much time I would have to actually get a lot of reading done. But, I have decided to give it a go anyway. It's towards the end of the program and I feel like it is a good motivator to get me back into the swing of things before I go back home. So without further ado, below are the details of the readathon and the voting.

What Is This Readathon About? 
Look at the books you own, either physical, e-book or ones you've borrowed from the library and pick out a few you really want to read, or feel like you should read. It’s up to you how many you pick, personally I'd pick a few more than you expect to be able to read in a week. Example: if you think you’ll only read two, pick out five books or if you think you can read seven, pick out ten. 
Make a list of these books on your blog, or make a video, or a Goodreads shelf or post a picture on Instagram—whatever is easiest for you. Then get friends, other bloggers/booktubers etc. to vote on which books you HAVE to read. 
When the readathon comes along, you read the books in the order of most votes. For example, if one book gets 10 votes—you read that first, then the one that got 7 and so on. If there's a tie, then it's your preference. The goal is to read as many as possible.  
When Will This All Take Place? 
The Make Me Read It Readathon will start at July 9th and end at July 16th. You can start once it hits 12am in your time zone. The readathon itself lasts for a week! 
Since this is an interactive readathon, there is about a month and a half to get some kind of initial post/photo/video/etc. where your readers can vote for which book you read! You can either have a poll, or just rely on the comments, have votes count more than once, honestly this is all up to you! If you plan to participate, make sure you have all your books ready for July 9th!

  5. Good luck! I haven't read any of those, so I just voted for the ones on my TBR list, because that way you can tell me what you thought before I read them ;)

  6. Good luck with this! I suggest Since You've Been Gone (because I ended up liking it a lot more than I expected) and More Happy Than Not (because I'm curious about it and would love to see your toughts).
