Frequently Asked Questions
What kinds of books can I read for the read-a-thon? Do audiobooks count?
You can read any book that you want! There's no page limit or reading level for the books you choose. As long as you read six books in total, one for each category, you're good to go. You can also read in any format. Audiobooks, e-books, graphic novels, and manga all count.
The log looks like a bingo board so do I have to choose prompts in a certain pattern?
Nope! You can choose any six prompts you want from each of the six categories, and they don't have to be in a row or in a diagonal. For example, you could choose Colonel Mustard, the rope, the library, secrets, the inspector, and parole.
Can I double-up on a prompt?
The goal for this read-a-thon is to read six books in one month so read only one book per prompt. You can do it!
When can I start reading?
You can crack open your first book at 12am on Thursday, October 1st!
