Asian Readathon

1st — 31th May   •  #asianreadathon

The Asian Readathon is all about celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and Asian characters, authors and storylines. Challenges can be combines and read in any order. However, EACH book read has to feature a character or author of a different Asian ethnicity, to promote cultural diversity.

The Challenges

📚 Read any book by an Asian author.

📚 Read a graphic novel featuring an Asian character or written/drawn by an Asian author (manga, manhua, manhwa, and comics count).

📚 Read a book featuring an intersectional Asian character or written by an intersectional Asian identity (i.e. queer, mixed, disabled, neurodiverse, etc).

📚 Read a book by an Asian author that was originally written in their native language (translated books and graphic novels count).

📚 Read the group book: A Thousand Beginnings and Endings by Ellen Oh.

12th — 18th May •  #ebookathon

This one is perfect for me! The whole point is to read ebooks you hoarded on your Kindle, Kobo or whatever other digital reading devices you may have. Clear and simple.

19th — 26th May  •  #Borrowathon

BorrowAThon is all about reading borrowed books, be it from the library, a friend, family, etc. You don’t need to own books to be considered a reader, and this readathon is a good reminder of that.

The Current Readathon wants you to finish all those books you started and never got to the end. So grab that pile of books you’re keeping on your bedside table and start reading!
