From Sarah’s announcement message:

The readathon will run from 17th-23rd November (midnight-to-midnight for all timezones).

The idea is to read as many books as you can relating in some way to the issue of bullying during the week. How many books you read is totally up to you, but in the readathon spirit it’s good to push yourself to read more than you usually would.

There are no rules, other than the inclusion of the ‘bullying theme’ somewhere in the book, whether it’s the main theme of story or just a small feature within the overall plot – whatever you’re comfortable with or have on your TBR.

Over 130 books have been suggested featuring varying levels of bullying, aimed at readers of all ages, so there should be something for everyone to get involved. You don’t have to read books from this list, they’re just suggestions in case you’re stuck. The list can be found here:https://www.goodreads.com/group/books…

The official hashtag is #AntiBullyReads and I will be using it to chat with everyone who’s taking part on twitter before, during and after the readathon. Use it for TBRs, updates and discussions so that we can all get involved and maybe even make some new friends along the way.

Have fun, read lots, and stay kind <3

EDIT: I have made the group artwork available for anyone to download from here: http://bit.ly/1GOymvo There’s square images for Instagram (or anywhere else you want to share!), and a twitter banner.

Please feel free to use them online along with the hashtag #AntiBullyReads to help spread the word and show your support 🙂

    I would totally do this readathon but it’s just bad timing for me. >< It's such an amazing cause though. Best of luck on the journey. And yay for Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe! It's just such a mindblowing and beautiful story. 😀
