... the rules are very simple and the event is meant to be completely relaxed. Here’s what you have to do:
Read books you’ve been excited to read for a long time but never seem to get to in January. You can do this exclusively for the whole month (my approach), you can do it for just one week, or you can simply try to get to one or two of these books in January. Your level of commitment is entirely up to you!
At the beginning of January, Iris and I will post something signalling the official start of Long-Awaited Reads month. If you’re taking part, you can come back to these posts and leave us a link to a LAR-related review; you’ll then be entered in a giveaway for a book you’ve always wanted to read that is up to $15/€11/£10 on BookDepository (open worldwide).
If you want to talk about the event on Twitter, the hashtag is #LARMonth.
Have fun!Simple, right?
I love the idea of this. I have so many books on my shelves that I pass every day and think 'I can't wait to read you.' Yet I do wait, and wait, and wait. I've just walked around and chosen these six books which I really want to read. Most likely I will read just one, but hey, that's fine with me!
