Dumbledore’s Army Readathon: Wrap-Up

So for the first two weeks of 2017, I participated in Aentee’s amazing read-a-thon called Dumbledore’s Army Readathon on her blog Read at Midnight, which focuses on reading diverse books. It was basically a fun way of kicking off a resolution of mine, which is to read more diversely. I didn’t finish it, unfortunately…I read 3 and 1/2 books out of 7 but it’s fine, I mean, it’s 3 and 1/2 more books than I would have read if I didn’t do this, so I’m taking it as a success. (Of course I have my laundry list of excuses that nobody wants to hear: spring semester had just started, I had books I need to read for class, etc., etc…)

DISCLAIMER: The ‘points’ header and spell graphics are all made by Aentee

Here’s the points system, in which I will most certainly be using a calculator for:dareadathon-points

  • Each 10 pages you read will earn you 1 House Point.
  • Each book you complete will earn you 5 House Points.
  • Each book you review specifically for the #DAReadAThon will earn you 5 House Points.
  • Crosspost your review to Amazon for 1 House Point.
  • Post an image of your #DAReadAThon ID on Twitter for 1 House Point, and it allows other members of your House to find you!
  • Tweeting on the #DAReadAThon hashtag (with meaningful tweets about your current reads, recommendations of #OwnVoices) will earn you 1 House Point each. You can have a maximum of 20 House Points from Social Media interactions.
  • Photos of your #DAReadAThon books or TBR pile will earn you 1 House Point each. This contributes towards the maximum of 20 House Points from Social Media interactions mentioned above.
  • We will catalogue the points at the end via a masterpost, and find out who the Hogwarts House Champion for Diversity is!

Without further ado, here are the books I read(/half read):
