TBR: JourneyAThon and Bookemon, Round 3

The JourneyAThon and Bookemon readathons, both in round 3, will occur during all of May this year. I’ve participated in both readathons in earlier rounds, and they’re a ton of fun. Bookemon is all about reading books to collect Pokemon by types. For JourneyAThon, readers need to pick a path across a fictional map to the destination city, and there are lots of travel choices along the way!

Both readathons have awesome systems in place for picking teams and counting points to make it extra fun. I’ve found myself distracted by those features in past, putting more time into points than reading, so I’m just going to stick to matching books to prompts to guide my TBR.

The books I’m going to read, along with the prompts they fill, are:

TBR: O.W.L.s Magical Readathon – Year 3

Ah, a readathon of epic fantasy proportions. The premise is to choose a Harry Potter-related career and read books based on the testing requirements to enter that career. How fun is that? The creator goes through an incredible amount of work to set up the O.W.L.s readathon (April 2020) and, in a few months, the N.E.W.T.s readathon. I participated in both last year (trying to become a Curse Breaker) and had a blast. Full information about the readathons can be found at the Magical Readathon Twitter account.

Since I bought plants for the first time this year & haven’t managed to kill them yet, I’m feeling confident enough to pursue the Herbologist career. Below are the O.W.L.s I’ll need to achieve and optional seminar requirements, along with their reading prompts and the books I chose.

TBR: March of the Mammoths

The final readathon I’ll be participating in this month is March of the Mammoths Round 2.

I absolutely love the name. 😀 Find out more about the creator and the readathon in the announcement video.

It’s both a very simple readathon and a very difficult one. There’s only one challenge: read a book with 800+ pages. Whew!

For Round 2 of March of the Mammoths, I’ll be reading:
