This read-a-thon could not have come at a better time! I need something to keep my mind off of how anxious I am for the birth of my 5th child. I'm not due until Feb 7 but keep having contractions every few days and it's driving me nuts. She keeps teasing me! Along with giving me something to do while I wait, I can also get caught up on my reading. I am so behind on my reading goals! And once my newborn is here I will have even less time to read. So I plan on taking this read-a-thon fairly seriously!
Here's more info about the read-a-thon hosted by The True Book Addict at Seasons of Reading.
It's here! The official sign up for A Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon! It will be on January 21 - 27! It will start at 12:00am Monday and end at 11:59pm on Sunday. Times are central standard time so adjust your times accordingly.
Of course, like most read-a-thons, the books read must be novels or novellas, adult or young adult are fine, and you can read children's books too (as long as you do read some novels too). Note: Non-Fiction is also okay!
You DO NOT have to participate the entire week. Join in when you can, start in the middle, end early...whatever works best for your schedule. As long as you sign in at the sign-in post and do some kind of wrap up post, you're in for the big giveaway at the end.
As with my previous read-a-thons, it will be a week of relaxed reading during which we can personally challenge ourselves and whittle away those ever looming TBR piles/shelves/libraries.
I hope you will join me! I will not be hosting any mini-challenges, as we learned from my last two read-a-thons, focusing on the reading rocks. However, if anyone else would like to host a mini-challenge, you are more than welcome. We will have a few scheduled Twitter chats again (and perhaps some more reading sprints). Our twitter hashtag is #WintersRespite
