#StartOnYourShelfathon: Goals, TBRs, and Star Maps

Hi, my name is Isabelle, and I hoard books. Kindle freebies, discounted titles, ARCs, gifts — they all pile up alarmingly quickly. My priority owned TBR shelf currently stands at 191 titles. That’s almost as many books as I read in a year, so clearly something needs to be done before I drowned in unread owned books. 

But never fear, #StartOnYourShelfathon is here!


#StartOnYourShelfathon is a 2020 star-themed readathon hosted and run by CW from The Quiet Pond. The aim of #StartOnYourShelfathon is to read as many unread books on your bookshelf as you can between December 13th 2019 and December 31st 2020.

The mascot of #StartOnYourShelfathon is Castor the Star Collector, a sloth friend of The Quiet Pond who has lost all the stars he has collected over the years. And he needs your help to find them again!

For every book that you read as part of #StartOnYourShelfathon, you collect a star that you can add to your ‘star map’. Read books, collect stars, give yourself an amateur star-collector name, and create constellations! You can read Castor’s story and find information about and resources for the readathon here.
