From Elena
"
In this video I announce the #BookBuddyAthon readathon is back for round two. Myself and Sam from ColdTeaAndCrumbs will be running it again. It will be running from the 7-13 May and is very relaxed and just a chance for us to all read and enjoy a good readathon. I hope you all fancy taking part and take part in the fun. And if you don't make videos it totally doesn't matter tweet and instagram and comment and chat however you want."

How the readathon works:

First you need to join up with a buddy.  That can be another booktuber,
A real life friend,  a subscriber,  a blogger,   an instagramer,
A family member... anyone else who wants to also do the readathon.


The Challenges:
~1) Choose three books and get your buddy to pick one of them for you to read.
Still working on this challenge... I'll choose once at this point in the
Challenge when I know what I'm in the mood for reading...
Alrighty.
Buddy, Lucy, took a look at my 3 options and has chosen a trip to Italy via
~

~
Based on a true family story, written by Canadian author, Laura Fabiani.

2) Buddy read a book with your buddy.
We had fun in discussions on this ...  our choice?
~



ANNE'S HOUSE OF DREAMS by LM Montgomery

in audio form for my reading and book for Lucy, we're both
anticipating this classic novel by a Canadian author.
~
Began May 6th at 6 pm being 12 am UK time
and completed as of my midnite being 6 am UK May 7th.

~*~
 3) May 7th Currently reading  Read as 2nd book in buddyathon.
Changed my choice to Carla Stewart's STARDUST
for "YELLOW" cover for buddy, Lucy's, fav colour.
~
~
 
Read a book with your buddy's favourite colour cover 

 
Yellow for Lucy's fav colour = my choice?  [originally]  but I found too heavy to
begin reading a WWII novel
first thing in the morning.  I will save it for
later if it works into fulfilling #4 -
Read a book with title that starts with the first letter of your buddy's name
(or at least appears in the title if not possible).

~

I changed to an audio listen with "L" for Lucy

A LADY OF
WILLOWGROVE
HALL

[5 'L's !]



~*~

Which book has Lucy chosen for reading my fav colour?
My 5th challenge title choice as below.
Another shared read for these reading buddies.{close enough to periwinkle for me!}

5) Read a book that you want to... just because.
Can.Not.Wait. for audio listen to Victoria's new release...
~  
 ~
Added another 'Just Because' read of PERSUASION
by Jane Austen in audio as I had the time available.

So it was entirely a great week of Reading and my best readathon yet.  Thanks so much to Sam and Elena for hosting the Fun and to Lucy for being Best Reading Buddy !!
