Bookshelfery and Caffeinated Book Review are co-hosting the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-A-Thon that runs from this Thursday, November 12th at 12 am (your time zone) and ends on Tuesday, November 17 at 11:59 pm (your time zone). I know it's a bit of short notice (the Read-A-Thon starts this Thursday) but I wanted to post this before the start date so you can enter if you wish. Just go and sign up here.
The only stipulation for this Read-A-Thon is that you must read holiday themed or winter setting reads.
This post also serves as my goal post! I don't really read a lot of winter books this time of year, but I thought that it would make a nice change if I tried out at least two or three winter/holiday themed reads. After all, I am one of those people that love almost all things Christmas and that includes holiday films. So why not holiday reads?
Goal: Read 3 holiday/winter themed books during this Read-A-Thon (these are the 3 I grabbed from my library):
Mistletoe Murder by Leslie Meier
Wishin' and Hopin' by Wally Lamb
The Stupidest Angel by Christopher Moore
I don't know if I'll get through all of these, but I do hope so!
