    Why I cancelled my readathon last year // Why itā€™s back!

    As you might have noticed by my pinned current tweet on my Twitter, I have advertised my month-long readathon, that I created September last year. I came up with the idea while trying to think of a book series I would like to read, along side a children’s series. “The Chronicles of Narnia” does both.

It is the section for those of us who want to gather new knowledge. In the library there is the Fiction section. This is where the…
