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!)

Counting down to . . . .

Too excited to sleep, sort of. My sleep pattern is all messed up and I've been sleeping while you're at work. So what to do about a Read-a-Thon that starts at my bedtime? Stay up and read!

I have a small platform on my desk where my laptop lives. Earlier today it had a pile of books on it when my husband came into the room. He laughed a bit that I even had books piles where the computer goes. I said it was my read-a-thon pile, I was taking a picture. "No way are you going to get all that read," well, no but I'm hoping I can do 800 pages which is slightly more that last time. "Oh, you can do that easy." Isn't he great?

The funny thing about me and reading plans....I don't always follow them! This may look like a great selection but it doesn't mean that I'm going to get any of them read!

Oh, wait a minute, I already read one of them ;)

Philippa Fisher's Fairy Godsister
The Book Lover
Edenville Owls
The Christmas Shoppe
Adam Orser
The Lost Gate
Dakota Born
Dragondrums, finished before RaT even started!
The Probability of Murder
Devil's Food Cake Murder
Stay at Home Dead

Two are re-reads, five have been started recently, two are books for review, one was a gift, most are for challenges and several are young adult or middle grades.

1. read more than 757 pages.
2. do 4 mini-challenges
3. complete "Finished Reading" posts for books read.
4. Complete reviews if I finished the two review books.
5. Take a break to make finger jello for party

Not bad considering I've already been up (with a short nap) for over 12 hours. I didn't get all my errands done and may have to do a couple later today.

I think I'm going to have a blogroll just for RaT blogs. Not all of them of course but several, especially the ones I already follow.

Are you excited? See you in a couple of hours!
