Hello ONTD! We are (thank God!!!!!!!!!!) almost at the end of 2020, so now is the time to discuss the 2021 ONTD Reading Challenge
. If you are interested in participating next year, let's discuss ideas for the format of the challenge and new tasks!
Once we've finished discussing in the comments, I'll make a post laying out the tasks properly.I did have an idea
, considering that most of us spent most of this year either in stressful essential jobs or at home, barely going out for groceries and not travelling (this is assuming you're not a pandemic-ignoring celebrity, of course). We don't know how next year's going to be, but travel is again probably not on most people's list for health or money issues.The idea is to do a special "ONTD Reading Challenge Around the World", where each month we read a book from a different country.
(Example: in January we read a book by a Korean writer, in February we read a book by an Argentinian writer, and so on). We'll still do a post every month with a list recommending books. The idea is to get to know new places and new cultures and experience a bit of "armchair travelling", use reading as a way of expanding our horizons, escaping from daily life and our current locations in a safe way.
For those of us who are feeling mentally fatigued from this year, I think this could be a good idea to change up the reading challenge.Please let me know what you think about this!
If you like it, let's discuss possible countries. If you hate it, we have different options. We could keep the same format as usual, and think of new memes for each month as we usually do. We could try something else (leave your suggestion in the comments).
It is OKAY if you've never participated or if you tried but didn't manage to complete all the tasks (this year, I definitely didn't manage to read it all). You can still try again (or for the first time) next year. Everyone's welcome
and we'll all do our best to help you find a book that you may enjoy.gif credit eric wu
