NewYearsathon 2021 Announcement

Good morning everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. I’m getting over being sick right now but I really wanted to get this post up for you all so that you can get the information on time.

If you don’t know what NewYearsathon is, it’s a readathon I host with Donna from Mom’s Book Collection. The whole goal of the readathon is to just start out the year with some reading.

There are challenges to go along with this, but don’t feel like you have to do them to participate. You can always just decide to join in whether you do the challenges or not. Feel free to just chat with us about the books you’re kicking off the year with.

So, let’s get into the details!



So, we decided to make this round of NewYearsathon a bit longer since 2020 has been a disaster so we figured we’d give more time to join if you wanted to.

It will start at midnight on January 1st, your time zone, and end on January 17th at 11:59pm.

So there’s plenty of time and plenty of time to finish all the challenges!

Social Media

We have a Twitter and an Instagram for NewYearsathon, so you can always follow along on there or follow along on mine and Donna’s Instagrams.

  • Read in the morning/night with no distractions
  • Read at least 2 books
  • Most anticipated read of the new year
  • Book you were gifted for Christmas or recently got
  • Make a bookish resolution
  • Published in (any) January
  • Book released in 2020
  • Book with silver or gold on the cover
  • A book you didn’t get to from your 2020 TBR

And that’s really it everyone! I hope you all can join us in the New Year to read some awesome books. I’m thinking about doing a 24 hour starting at midnight on New Years so if you would like to do that, let me know!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us and we can answer it for you! Or if you need help making a TBR. There are also more templates on Instagram so make sure you check out the “Templates” highlight to see those.

Thank you all so much for joining me. I hope you enjoyed and I’ll see you all very soon. Bye!

  1. Sounds like fun! I might join you for a few of the prompts, even if not for the whole challenge. I recently realized that I’ve been horrid about reading gift books in a timely fashion, though, so the “read a book you were gifted for Christmas” sounds like a really good nudge in the right direction for me.
