I decided to participate in the Asian Readathon this year for Asian Heritage Month! Reading stories by or about POC, especially Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAIP), is one of my reading goals this year and every year, so why not have more fun with it by partaking in a readathon.
There’s more information on the YouTube video where Cindy explains the challenge in more details. There’s also a Google Doc with information about book clubs and a directory of Asian books for any guidance!
This year’s challenge is loosely themed around ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’ and is meant to be easy, accessible, and open to interpretation.
Read a book written by an Asian author.
Read a book featuring an Asian character who is a woman AND/OR older.
Read a book by an Asian author that has a universe you would want to experience OR a universe that is totally different from yours.
Read a book by an Asian author that has a cover worthy of googly eyes. 👀
Read a book by an Asian author that has a high rating OR was highly recommended.
These challenges can be combined if you want to make it even easier!
You can combine challenges and read in any order; however, EACH book you read should feature a character or author of a different Asian ethnicity. This is to encourage cultural diversity.
