During our last readathon, we made the most of our isolation and tried to get in as much reading as possible. 📚 This time, we’re challenging you again to read for a total of 15h between July 20 – 26th.
Here’s the twist: you are only allowed to read books that are related to the idea of freedom. This can mean a book that has the word ‘freedom’ in its title or a book that’s about the freedom of expression, freedom to be yourself, a country that has earned its freedom, etc.
Here’s a list of 9 books, to get you started. You can choose other books as well, just make sure they fit with the theme:
