Mythothon TBR

What better than planning for November before October ends?

A few weeks ago Louise @Foxes and Fairytales contacted me through Twitter about a Greek mythology related readathon and even before I finished reading her message I was screaming yes!

Basically Mythothon is a month long readathon from 1st to 30th November in your timezone. While the readathon is based on greek mythology you don’t actually have to read books of greek or any mythology, unless you want to.

You can create a full or partial TBR pertaining to the various prompts provided and just get reading! Sign-ups are open till November 1 but you can actually join whenever you want, latecomers are welcome too.

Rules

  • If it can be added on Goodreads, it counts — novellas, graphic novels, audiobooks etc. are all fair game.
  • Each book only counts for one square — so choose wisely.
