Screen Shot 2020-07-28 at 10.19.30 PMI haven’t participated in many readathons before but Noura’s eye-catching graphics and thoughtful prompts caught my attention on twitter! The Diversify That Shelf readathon is taking place from August 10th-19th; participate on twitter with #DTSReadathon and be sure to check out her full post at The Perks of Being Noura!
