This was such a successful readathon for me. Not only did I meet my requirements for my profession, potioneer, but I was also able to get an extra OWL examination under my belt to gain the best score, an Outstanding.

TBR | Magical Readathon OWLs Exams

ToBeRead12:17So I have to admit I heard about this readathon a day before it started otherwise I would have posted about it sooner. But, the moment I heard about it I knew I needed to take part in it. This a readthon hosted by Book Roast over on youtube. I have to say she is very organized and very knowledgable.

Highlights:

  • April 2nd- April 29th
  • To get an O you need to sit and pass 5 OWL exams.
  • No doubling up on challenges
  • Comic books, manga, audiobook, and graphic novels do count
  • Use #owlsreadathon2018

So as I mentioned earlier she is very knowledgable. If you go to the readathon twitter page she has a whole thread dedicated to explaining the OWLs needed for the profession you would like. I decided I would like to be a Potioneer. Here are the required OWLs, but if you noticed I need 5 to get an O so I will be picking another OWL that is not required.
