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!)

I've got my books ready, all I need is my snacks!

Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon

Saturday, October 12, 2013

Start time: 7 a.m. CST
start time for me? 5 a.m.
Since that is my bedtime and we have afternoon plans, I'll only have about 7 hours to read, visit and blog.

I've taken a picture of all the library books I have checked out and I can only say...yikes! I've got some that are due sooner than others and some that have already been renewed at least once and should be read quickly.

There are a couple of review books, okay there are five seven, on my list. Plus the four I got in the mail yesterday, my huge ARC pile, and even bigger TBR pile. Sigh.

I've donated a prize this year!  "$20 towards book of choice at Book Depository". International and I don't have to pick a title!

I'm going to be a cheerleader for Team Bear. I don't know yet what blogs are signed up for that one. Hope you have a great time with Readathon--you certainly have a large and fun stack of books.
