Pokémon is taking over the world and though I haven’t hopped on the Pokémon Go bandwagon, I am taking advantage of as many of the Pokémon bookish festivities as I can because I enjoyed the Pokémon cartoons and I love books.
I discovered the #ReadThemAllThon, hosted by Aentee at Read at Midnight, a week or so ago and decided to join in because this readathon is stretched over 3 weeks (Sunday, August 14, to Sunday, September 4). Though it requires us to read 8 books during those 3 weeks, the possibility that I’ll complete a book or two is higher with this readathon than the usual week-long readathons.
Aentee has created this readathon to match Ash’s quest in the first season of the Pokémon cartoons when he strives to compete in Kanto’s Indigo League competitions. But instead of fighting in gym battles, we will be reading books. However, Aentee has also structured this readathon to include Pokémons so that the amount of books we read as well as the extent to which we participate in other activities (tweeting, posting reviews, etc.) will determine how our chosen Pokémon will evolve. I think that’s awesome!
