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!)

High Summer Read-a-Thon!

High Summer Read-a-Thon
July 21 - July 27

Challenge runs from Midnight to 11:59 CST

Michelle at The True Book Addict brings us the High Summer read-a-thon. There is a dedicated blog for her RaTs and lots of information on the Guidelines tab but basically she wants us to spend a "week of relaxed reading during which we can personally challenge ourselves and whittle away those ever looming TBR piles/shelves/libraries."

I've got a couple of books to finish and review but other than that, I don't know what I'll be reading this week. I'll update here then do a wrap-up.

Hope you can join us!

I didn't finish book ten but I did read 157 pages (out of 370) of it. Dang, that would have put me over 2,000 pages!

sigh, that's okay, I had a wonderful time at the live children's theater production that my daughter was involved in.

See you next summer for the High Summer Read-a-Thon but check in to see what's up next.

Happy Reading
