Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with my official announcement for ROUND TWO of THE GRAPHICS-ATHON which is a little readathon Destiny and I hosted earlier this year and LOVED so we’ve decided to bring it back again for a second round! And this round we also have a new host joining us, our friend Rebecca from BookishlyRebecca!
So… what is the Graphics-Athon?
This is a really chill readathon where the aim is just to read anything with images as the main storytelling device! So, any manga, comics or graphics novels count – anything with graphics!
- beings October 11th 12:00AM (your time)
- ends October 19th 11:59PM (your time)
Where can I talk about The Graphics-athon?
We have an official Twitter account so you can find us all there!
You can find the Graphics-athon Twitter here.
We did a poll over on Twitter to see how many prompts people usually prefer for a readathon and the general consensus was that 1-5 is a good number but a decent amount of people also prefer more, so we tried to compromise!
We have 5 main prompts and 3 bonus prompts. However, I want to stress that this is a stress-free and relaxed readathon, so you by no means have to participate in the prompts if you don’t want to but they’re there if you want them!
- BIPOC representation
- Disability &/or Mental Health representation
- LGBTQIA+ representation
- A spooky read
- A 5 star prediction
+ bonus prompts
- Has an adaptation (has been adapted, will be adapted)
- Pink on the cover
- A genre or storytype you wouldn’t normally reach for
We really tried to step it up this round so not only do we have prompts, we also have host recommendations, a bingo board and an entire google doc dedicated to recommending graphics to fit the prompts (the latter two will be coming soon so stay tuned on our Twitter!)
