Tome Topple Readathon Round 16 Announcement! April 15 – 28,2022

Hello everyone!

I’m happy to announce that Sam from Thoughts on Tomes has asked us to return as one of the hosts for this upcoming Tome Topple Readathon from April 15th to April 28th

The whole point of this readathon is to read those giant books that can be intimidating sometimes. Books that count for this readathon are over 500 pages. I’ve been struggling reading this year, super slumpy, but readathons always get me fired up!

Bind ups of narrative novels or short stories (like bind ups of series or short story collections) do not count, but graphic novel bind ups do. For example, the bind ups of NK Jemisin’s Broken Earth series does not count, because those individual pieces of work are not over 500 pages, but the omnibus of Wonder Woman graphic novels do.

We’re doing something different this time. There are 20 (!!) prompts that you can choose from. Obvi no one can read 20 books over 500 pages, but Sam wanted to give us options. Choose them however you like! Pick a couple on your own, roll a D20, ask a friend for a #, use a random # generator, however! Unlike last time, books cannot count for more than one prompt. No doubling up this time!

The Challenges:

  • The tome with a screen adaptation (current or upcoming)
  • A sequel tome
  • Tome on your TBR with the most pages
  • Audiobook tome
  • A tome written by a BIPOC author
  • Tome from a genre you don’t usually read
  • Tome in a series you haven’t read for a while
  • Tome with a green cover
  • Tome based on a historical event
  • Tome that has won an award
  • Standalone tome
  • Tome set in a non-European inspired setting
  • Tome centering a romance
  • Tome that’s been on your TBR the longest
  • Tome featuring an animal as main character or prominent side character (real or magical)
  • Tome with your favorite cover
  • Graphic novel tome
  • Tome that was published before 2018
  • Re-read a tome
  • Tome written by someone who doesn’t identify as a man
