Hey, (mood) readers!

I am opening 2020 with a brave decision to join a year-long readathon! I chose one with a goal that is well-inclined with my personal one, which is to devour my never-ending TBR and try to focus on defeating my backlist!

In this post, I will be sharing details about this readathon, my goals, and the books that I am planning (hoping) on reading throughout the year.

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.
