I am coming to you today with the Announcement for the next Manga Madness Readathon Round, which will run from August 3rd-11th and you’ll be able to use #MangaMadnessReadathon to share your progress, TBR, and Updates, if you decide to join. I can’t believe that we’re already up to round 7, I love hosting this readathon and reading Manga with everyone, so I hope you can join this round and read on to find out how to participate. The sign up post is at the bottom of this post.
Again, Just like with the other rounds, there are 25 Challenges, although you don’t have to complete all of them, but you can if you want to, and it will take the form of a Bingo Board, all the have to do is complete at least one Bingo, but if you would like to try for a Blackout and complete the entire board, Good Luck. I always set to get a Blackout. So that’ll probably be my goal again this round. And there will be different option for those who aren’t too fond of Bingo Boards, so everyone can participate. This can be a easy or difficult as you would like it to be, you set the level, if you enjoy a challenge, or even if you prefer a more low-key readathon. So, here are the Challenges:
After reading said Manga/Volume during the readathon, you will be able to cross that square off of your BINGO sheet. Also, If you don’t want to do the Bingo Challenges, you don’t have to. You can still participate even if you decide that you don’t want to do those challenges. As long as you’re reading Manga and you’re having fun, it counts. The main goal is to just have fun. Anyway, If you’re not sure what to read for some of the challenges, you can check out Manga Madness Readathon Recommendations and Manga Series I’ve Read from Start to Finish Part 1 and Part 2, and I’ll have a third part out soon too!
These three Different Options you’ll be able to choose from if you don’t want to do the bingo board are:
Option 1: Bingo Board Challenges
Option 2: Read anything you want
Option 3: Stick to one Series. For those of you who want to continue or Finish a series and not switch between different series!
On the sign up post you will also have the option to mix up any of these options or even do a mix of all the options.
