If you haven’t heard about the Magical Readathon, you are missing. out. We are so excited to participate. Since there are 4 of us, we didn’t want to do individual TBRs, so here we all are!
The idea is that you want to pass 9 O.W.L.s to receive an Outstanding. Very excited.
Linz: Apparently I selected Journalist/Writer for my magical career path, because like real life, I put the horse before the cart…or in this case books before the bookshelf?
Minda: For my magical readathon adventure, I’ve selected Librarian as my magical career path and outline for the O.W.Ls I’ll take. I’m aiming for an Exceeds Expectations.
Sam: I have quite an ambitious TBR but if I cut out TV maybe I can do it. I need an Outstanding, bitches. Also, I’m going for Metal Charmer for my magical career path… I was gonna do Librarian but Minda beat me to it.
