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!)

Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-Thon!

Wonderfully Wicked
October 17 - 27

hosted by April and Pabkins at My Shelf Confessions

sign-ups and info, here

The Wicked Wildfire Read-A-Thon is a time when we all get together to dedicate the days of October 17-27 to as much reading as possible. You read as much as you can in order to get yourself a little further through that huge to-read pile! We know real life gets in the way and even if you can’t participate more than one day, you’re welcome to join in on the fun!

 In the meanwhile, we will be hosting book-related challenges where you can win some awesome prizes and have a Twitter party at the hashtag #WWReadathon! You can posts updates on your blog, Twitter, Goodreads, Facebook or even YouTube — as long as the profile is public and we all can enjoy your reading progress! Make sure to link to the site where you’ll be sharing your posts/updates with us.

I don't have a list ready to post but I'm working on the one for RIP IX as well as my fall reading challenge.

My first time with this challenge was 2009 then I missed 2010. I've done fairly well since then but there are several books that were on my list to read that still aren't read!

Carl has so much to say, and says it so well that you really need to read his whole post to appreciate just how fantastic he is.
