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 Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 6th and runs through Sunday, January 12th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 9.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

~ Pages Read 2,026! ~ 

That's twice what I was going for which is great on the reading end but not so great on the exercise end. I did go to Disneyland Friday and we didn't ride the tram from or to the parking garage but still, I've got to walk every day.

All but two were re-reads. Lara was a new author and for the 101 Fantasy Project challenge. My Spotted Dream was #8 and the last title in the series except a major conflict weaving through all 8 books was left unresolved. There were also several brothers left unmated so it could go on. . .

edit: Seducing Cinderella is also a new read
