Readathon Challenges

I am OBSESSED with readathons. I know they can get a little stressful, so I decided to put together a list of some of the challenges and the books that meet those requirements.
Readathon Hack: When you look under “Book Details” under a book on Goodreads they have the option to select a different Edition. Different countries have different covers as well as hardback vs paperback.
