#Diverseathon is here!

My little geeky heart is beating with excitement! As you can guess by it’s title diverseathon is a read-a-thon celebrating diversity in books!

How awesome is that? Whoop whoop!

It runs from January 22nd (today) to the 29th. There are a number of hosts across different platforms like instagram, youtube and blogs. But the home base of this read-a-thon is the twitter page where info about this read-a-thon can be found and where twitter chats will take place!

So, what books to read?

Any books that includes diversity. This read-a-thon celebrates and spotlights marginalised characters, cultures and settings. So get your hands on books that include maginalised groups!

This video by one of the hosts will tell you everything you need to know about the read-a-thon.
