This Readathon in really the only one I try to participate in every year. While it hasn’t been around for a long time, I still love the fact that it’s a month long (thus not making me feel like it’s a struggle to find time to read for it). I also adore how relaxed the Readathon is – there’s no pressure to read a lot or even hit all the challenges in it. Instead, this Readathon (to me, at least) is a great reminder to diversify your reading tastes and that Asian authors are often brushed to the sidelines.
I didn’t do a phenomenal job at getting books done for the Readathon this year, but I got a couple of things reads. I tried things that I wouldn’t normally pick up, and that’s really all I can ask for. Without further ado, here’s my (very small) wrap up for the 2021 Asian Readathon. (And yes, I know that this Readathon concluded in May and that this post is no longer relevant. I still wanted to get it up, though.)
- Read any book written by an Asian author.
- Read any book featuring an Asian protagonist.
- Read any book written by an Asian author in your favourite genre.
- Read any non-fiction book written by an Asian Author.
- Read any book written by an Asian author that’s not US centric.
Without further ado, here’s my reading stats for this month:
