The Friends Readathon

Considering that I barely made the 2020 Goodreads challenge, I’m gonna start this year off with the Friends Readathon (hosted by @tyraandthebooks) and get ahead of the challenge now. There’s something about readathons that inspires me to read more, especially if they have fun challenges – and this one definitely has that: every challenge is based on a quote from Friends!

I’ll update this post during the month – who knows, maybe I’ll even get all of them 😀 but probably not, so for now the goal is to complete at least one challenge per character.

So here are the challenges, copy-pasted from twitter:

Life challenges:

  • watch an episode of friends (or all 10 seasons)

  • He’s so pretty I want to cry – read a beautiful book – The Secret History by Donna Tartt
