Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m just doing a short but informative post to announce round four of the Graphicsathon! I’ve been running this readathon for a while now and I’ve seriously been loving reading graphics with you all so I figured why not keep it going! And, this round we even have some fantastic new hosts AND we’re hosting sprints for the first time ever! (details at the end of this post)
So, what is Graphicsathon? It’s a readathon dedicated to anything told in graphic (aka. anything where the main storytelling devices is illustrations) so comics, manga and graphic novels all count! We’re also pretty calm about the rules so you can read web comics or even listen to them on audiobook if that’s a mode available to you (I know a lot of comics and graphic novels like Nimona or Ms Marvel are available via audio), it’s all about reading graphics!
I’ll have my tbr coming soon so you can look forward to that! What will you be reading for round four?
All about the Graphicsathon!
To read anything with graphics as the main storytelling feature/device – aka. Comics, graphic novels, manga etc.
