Since I managed to tick off a few OWLs in July’s resit, I might as well make a stab at NEWTs in August.
I found out about the readathon from Liz at Travels in Retrospect, but the idea comes from Gintare of Bookroast, and the announcement video can be found here (with links to the rules and tasks in the video description).
Since which NEWTs I can sit is determined by which OWLs I managed to pass, the following are my subjects and tasks. I should surely manage at least an Acceptable in each, right? The book I am about to start right now is Terry Pratchett’s Wyrd Sisters, which should get me going on Charms at least, and then we’ll see how I go from there.
