Get ready to embark on a sunny adventure through exhilarating books! The Sunbeam Bookly Readathon 2023 is here! It’s time to let ourselves immerse into a world of literary delights, brilliant exploration and vibrant colors.
Whether you’re a true bookworm, an avid reading goals tracker freak, or someone looking to reignite their love for books, the Bookly Readathon promises to be an unforgettable experience.
During our last readathon, we rode the roller coasters and had fun at the bookish festival of Read-a-Palooza. This time around, we’re turning on the fan, and soaking up the warm afternoon sun. Are you in? 🌻
SUNBEAM BOOKLY READATHON
☀️ From July 21st to July 30th, bookworms around the world will join the ultimate 10-days long reading challenge.
So, grab your books (e-books and audiobooks, too ✌) and favorite drink, bask in the warmth of a lazy afternoon, and let the reading adventure begin!
Registration for the Bookly Readathon opens on July 7th and will be open for a full two weeks until July 20th. Signing up is easy: update your Bookly app, tap “join” on the Readathon tab and start tracking your reading sessions.
