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!)

Pick Your Thon Mini Challenge #6

Reading Challenges

Emily at Red House Books talks about NetGalley Read-a-Thons. Explains the w's of it and how to join. For this mini-challenge....
To participate in today's mini-challenge, simply leave us a comment either telling us about other 2012 challenges that you are participating in, or if you use Netgalley, give us a quick helpful tip / trick that you use when requesting books or organizing them.

1. Other 2012 challenges that you are participation in
ahem, my 2012 challenge page is here. Between review books and reading challenges, I'm having a hard time re-reading the books I love. Every year I've said "no more" then find another challenge that would be fun.

This is the second read-a-thon I've done this year plus I'm signed-up for two more and another is planned for October.

There are five romance related challenges alone and the best part are the words "challenge overlaps allowed".

Yes, I participate in reading challenges. It's a love/hate thing for me. One, I don't have the time to re-read my favorites but, two, I find so much to enjoy that I wouldn't have read on my own.

2. Do I use NetGalley
Yes, but not recently. I have a hard time using the reading program and reading the books before they expire. No tips or tricks, I've gotten every book I asked for and one I didn't. Because of the time factor, I've stopped asking for them.
