I wasn’t even thinking about doing this readathon until about 10 minutes before I filmed this video. Now, a few days later, I feel pretty excited to start reading. I even have some “prose” fiction that I hope to read during times I don’t traditionally read “graphic” fiction. I’m feeling rather ambitious, but confident. I might not feel so confident by next Tuesday.
I hope you don’t think that I’m taking the easy way out by choosing only graphic novels for this Summer’s Booktube-a-thon challenges; because believe me I’m not. I’m choosing titles that I wasn’t planning on reading anytime soon, and I’m planning on reading as much of these titles as I possibly can. I don’t want to just read 7 books next week — I want to read 45!
- One of the challenges of this readathon is to try and read 7 books in the week.
- And, if Pride and Prejudice takes me about 3 hours to read, and I can read 6 volumes of manga in the same allotment of time.
- Then, I need to read 6 X 7 (or 42) standard volumes of manga to complete the challenge.
Call me crazy, but I think I can do this!
