Hi everyone! I’m here today with a really exciting announcement. As you probably know, I run a YouTube channel with Blue and Alex and we’ve decided to run a month long readathon together!
- The readathon is called the Non-Binary November readathon, will run from 1st-30th November and aims to read and promote books by non-binary authors and with non-binary rep!
- You can cover more than one prompt with each book if you need to – for example, The Bone Witch covers non-binary author, non-binary side character, non-binary author of colour, N or B in the title and a colour of the non-binary flag (purple!)
- Our group book is The Bone Witch which we all be reading and encourage you to join us for!
- You do not need to read non-binary books for all of the prompts if non-binary is not specified, however it would be great to make sure they are LGBTQIA+!
- The hashtag we are using for this readathon is #NBNOV, which can be used on Twitter to join in and discuss the readathon
- We have a giveaway! All you have to do is subscribe to our channel and tweet using the hashtag #NBNOV, and you will be entered to win either The Bone Witch or a non-binary book of your choice. The giveaway ends at midnight on November 1st and the winner be will announced the following day and contacted via Twitter.
- Prompts are below the video, which also provides this information!
- Read a book with a non-binary main character
- Read a book by a non-binary author
- Read a book with the letter N or letter B in the title
- Read a book with a cover that has one or more of the non-binary flag colours (purple, yellow, white or black)
