Tag Archive: Dusting off the Shelf


The Dusting Off The Shelf Read-A-Thon is over! I really enjoyed it because I was able to read books that have been on my shelves for a long time.

I managed to read three books for this read-a-thon:

In addition to reading three books, I was able to complete two of the challenges for the read-a-thon. I also started The Time Machine by H. G. Wells and The Map of Time by Félix J. Palma, but I haven’t finished them yet.

On two of the days, August 13th and 14th, I didn’t read any pages. This was because Chad and I went to a Linkin Park, 30 Seconds to Mars, and AFI concert on the 13th. It was amazing. We ended up getting home at 2 a.m., and we both had to work the next day. Suffice to say once I got home after working, I didn’t want to do much of anything besides sleep.

I have all of the following information on the original post, but I thought I would put it here as well.

One week down for the Dusting off the Shelf Read-A-Thon. I’m glad there’s another week because I haven’t read as much as I had hoped I would by this point. I haven’t been keeping up with the 100 pages a day, but I’ve been reading every day and just trying to enjoy it. I’ve managed to finish two books so far, and I’m hoping to finish the third sometime today. I hope everyone is enjoying the read-a-thon.

I’ve been on a readathon kick for the past two weeks with the BookTubeAThon and the Under-Hyped Readathon, so I want to keep up the reading momentum and join another. I found out about the Dusting off the Shelf Read-A-Thon from lเttlє๏ภเ๏ภฬгเtєร, and I decided that I would like to participate in this one as well.

As it states in the picture, it will be two weeks long, starting on August 1st and ending on August 15th, and it’s hosted by Books & Cleverness. This readathon is a great way to read books that have been on your bookshelf for way too long. I know I have quite a few of those, so this is a perfect readathon for me.
