Ho-Ho-Ho Readathon sign-up

September 11, 2014 Challenges 10


I know – ridiculous, isn’t it? School has barely started up, we’re still having summer weather, and here I am thinking about Christmas. But it’ll be here before you know it! Seems like time always speeds up in the fall.

Anyway, it’s time to sign up for the Ho-Ho-Ho Readathon (Nov. 6 – 11) hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Jennifer @ The Book Shelfery.  The rules are simple: link up, create a sign-up post and list your goals, read holiday-themed books, and participate in at least one challenge to be eligible for the Grand Prize. (The full rules are on the sign-up page; just click the button at the top of this post.)

My goals: Read at least 4 holiday-themed books during the readathon. I’m not listing titles yet; so far I’ve been approved for 2 holiday books, but I’ve requested four more that I’m waiting to hear back on.

If you want to participate, head on over and sign up!

    I joined ,even though it’s going to be in the 90’s today and I’m not even thinking about Christmas yet, but I love holiday-themed books, so why not? I haven’t listed my books yet either. Glad you joined.

    I’m glad you’re doing it too! Yeah, it feels really strange to be thinking about Christmas when it’s this warm. Although I do have one of my Christmas presents made already, and I’m working on another one.

      I know. It already feels like we’re on the slippery slope toward mid-winter, even though it’s only September. It may have been hot and sunny on Thursday when I posted this, but it’s barely 70 today (Saturday) – feels like October!

    I signed up too and I’ve been acquiring books from NG. I have more than I can read for the read-a-thon but that’s okay, I’ll have options. 😀

    The weather here has been turning cooler but I’m sure we’ll have a couple more hot days.

    Good luck!

      I’ve got four NG books saved up, another that could work, and three more requested, so I think I’ll have more than enough, too! Especially since I’m toying with the idea of doing NaNoWriMo this November.

    I want to do this too! I need to start thinking about what Holiday books I have and can read. Lord know I have plenty… I can avoid netgalley, right? lol

      Heck, yes! Start with what’s on your own shelves and your Kindle. And there’s always the library. I wonder if re-reads count? A Christmas Carol isn’t very long, and I’d love to re-read it.
