Fresh off the high of Dewey's Read-a-thon, it was easy for Sis to talk me into signing up for the Ho Ho Ho Holiday Read-a-thon. Yes, I'm aware that I have a horrible track record for participating in book events other than Dewey's - but this time will be different . . . seriously. Books and Christmas are two of my favorite things!
This merry event is hosted by Jennifer @ The Book Shelfery and Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. I've never met these ladies, or even visited their blogs, until now. But I see that at least one of them lives in Nebraska and they both obviously share my love of Christmas books - so they must be great gals. Here's the scoop on their read-a-thon:
Grab those holiday theme books and bring your holiday spirit. Prepare to enter challenges, win prizes, meet new friends and Twitter chat with us. You can join for a day or sit by the fire and hang out every day. The more you participate the more entries you will earn for the Participant Giveaway.Rules and other details, as well as the spot to sign up, can be found here. I don't see anything about setting a goal for number of books read, pages read, time reading - - just read. So - I'm going to start by selecting from this stack of books that I collected from my own bookshelf:
There are nine holiday books there - - nine holiday books that have been languishing on my shelves - unread. That's disgraceful for a Christmas nut! So, I'll start there and then drop by the library to see what's new.
Thanks Kimberly and Jennifer, for hosting this fun event. Can't wait to get started.
