N.E.W.T.s Readathon

Starting tomorrow, August 1st through the 31st, those of us joining Gintare over at Book Roast will be taking our N.E.W.T.s.  I spent quite a bit of time planning out a tentative TBR based on the requirements for each subject that I will be trying to complete on my path to becoming a Librarian.  I couldn’t find anything about the necessary grades to become a Librarian, but since most of the magical careers require at least an ‘E’ for “Exceeds Expectations” in most, if not all of the required subjects, that’s what I’m going to try for first.  However, I have to achieve an ‘O’ for Outstanding in at least one subject to pass my N.E.W.T.s in general.  That means, at a minimum, I’ll be attempting to read 11 books in August!
