I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

The Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon is over. I had a list of three books when I started. One for a specific date review (finished), one print and one ebook, both for fun and challenges. I may not have purchased The Deacon but it sounded good and was a free download. The other, A Cookie Before Dying is book two of a series. I thoroughly enjoyed book one and was looking forward to book two.

So, my Original list:
The Deacon (kindle on my laptop)
Nitt Witt Hill (print)
A Cookie Before Dying (print)

last post's Current Status list, modified:
The Deacon (kindle on my laptop) location 541 of 8240
Nitt Witt Hill (print) - finished (reviewed too)
A Cookie Before Dying (print) page 173
Time Slice (print) page 63
A Three Dog Life (print) - finished
Always (kindle on my touch) location 283 of 2563
Virgin River (print) - finished (Fri early am)
Hidden Summit, page 109
Great Short Poems, jumped around...Purple cow anyone?

Mini-Challenges: kept forgetting about them
Tweets: remembered some

Won a book!

Planned to finish three.
Started 9, finished 3. Not the same 3 as I started with but still finished 3 books. A couple more hours and I'll have Hidden Summit finished ;)

Thanks Michelle, that was fun. I hope to do it again next year, and remember the mini-challenges!

Glad you enjoyed it, Gina! Three books is not shabby at all. =O)
