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!)

A Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon

A Winter's Respite
January 16 - January 29

hosted at Seasons of Reading

There's lots of info so check it out

Social Media: #WintersRespite

This is a midnight to midnight kind of challenge, Central Standard Time, so adjust your start/end times and we'll all be reading at the same time. Any format, and length, any genre - including children's books as long as you read some adult ones too. This is two weeks of relaxed reading or you can kick it up a notch and get some of your challenge books out of the way.

There are no mini-challenges but there will be a prize so check out the guidelines page to make sure you do what's necessary to qualify.

~ Goals ~
I'm going to use this time to make sure the books I need to read for the month get read plus one or two ARCs and maybe another for a challenge. Hopefully I don't spend all the time reading on-line serials but only because they don't count!
