🧟‍♀️📚 Get Your Brains… I Mean, Books Ready! 📚🧟‍♂️ The Zombie Bookly Readathon 2023 is here! 

Join us on a spine-tingling journey through the world of the undead! 🌑 Whether you’re a zombie fiction fanatic or just looking to escape the apocalypse for a while, this is the readathon for you.

📚 Stock up on your favorite zombie-themed books, ignite your reading lanterns, and prepare for an adventure like no other. Each page you turn is another step closer to survival!

🌆 Connect with fellow survivors, share your fighting strategies (and book recommendations), and stay one step ahead of the zombie horde. Can you make it to the last page before they catch you?


🧟 From October 20th to October 31st, bookworms around the world will join the most epic 12-day-long reading battle of their life.

Don’t let the undead get the best of you—arm yourself with books (e-books and audiobooks, too ✌) and let the reading battle begin!

Registration for the Zombie Bookly Readathon 2023 opens on October 5th and will be open until October 19th. Signing up is easy: update your Bookly app, tap “join” on the Readathon tab, and start tracking your reading sessions. Bonus points if you use the #BooklyReadathon hashtag on your social channels to share your progress and get book suggestions from fellow participants.
