The Reading Rush is a week-long readathon that runs from July 20-July 26, 2020 this year. Every year since 2013, Ariel and Raeleen have run a similar readathon to The Reading Rush. It was originally called BookTubeAThon and was hosted on YouTube. The Reading Rush now has its own website and is hosted through the website. You can earn badges for completing challenges and hosting Read-Ins. The website (linked above) can provide more information for you. Below will be a list of the challenges and our TBR for the week.
