It’s that time of year again: when friends and relatives alike complain that they don’t know what to give the bookworms in their lives. The answer is actually pretty simple: BOOKS.
The Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon is hosted by Wishful Endings. It runs from September 11th through 24th with the goal of diminishing our to-read pile of books. All books in any format and source count and you do not have to be a blogger to participate. There are challenges and giveaways as well. You can sign up through September 23rd. Read all the specific details here. You may also join the Goodreads group, if interested, here.
