I read all five #TeamBurr points, earning my candidate 1766 votes. I also read an additional 10 books for another 3264 votes, giving me a grand total of 5030 votes collected.
The challenge is running throughout the entire month of March — 01 March to 31st March 2020 in your own timezone.
I’ve decided to play on #TeamBurr, so I’ll be reading five books for those prompts and then counting pages for whatever else I read next month too. There’s a couple of other readathons I want to take part in so we’ll see what books get added for those later.
Welcome to #Hamilthon, a readathon inspired by Hamilton: An American Musical.
The challenge with run throughout the entire month of March — 01 March to 31st March 2020 in your own timezone.

Jefferson or Burr?
If you’re interested in joining me for #mythothon2 and haven’t checked out the announcement, all the details about the prompts and prizes are in this post.
For this readathon, the books you choose DO NOT need to be mythology related to count, they just need to fit the prompt. I wanted to keep #mythothon2 as accessible – and fun — as possible, so I didn’t want to make reading a lot of similar or heavy books a must.
However, I know a lot of you might want to go that extra mile and use as many books inspired by actual Norse mythology as possible. I’ve read very few Norse retellings myself so this is by no means a comprehensive list, but largely suggestions of books I’ve heard good things so you can explore. Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments, and remember to post your TBRs so we can all cheer each other on when the readathon starts on September 1st.
Climb the World Tree, Yggdrasill!
Learn the secrets of true wisdom and magic with Odin.
Make mischief with Loki.
Fight alongside Thor.
Sign-ups are open now and will remain open throughout the readathon (latecomers are welcome!).
The readathon itself will run from 1st to the 30th September in your own timezone.
Please feel free to post Twitter updates, reading sprints, Instagram photos or just generally share how you’re getting on with the readathon using the hashtag #mythothon2. Follow and tag @mythothon for updates, info and retweets.
Any questions, just let me know!
If you’re a fan of mysteries, like I am, you really need to check out Courtagonist’s Cozyopoly board. Her video is here (and cozy fans should check out all her others too). It’s exactly what it sounds like: a Monopoly-inspired way to pick your TBR. I used the board back in May to pick three books for my TBR and this month I’m starting on the square I ended with and continuing from there to pick another three.
I’ll be reading three next month along with my NEWTs Readathon TBR.
