A Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon: Info about my Mini-Challenges/Giveaways and Two Winners!

I finally got the PRIZE PAGE posted last night. was a monster! By my calculations, I have 19 book prizes! Thanks so much to the authors/bloggers/publicists who were so generous to donate.  So, here is how it's going to work:

  • Participant giveaways:  Every day (at the end of the day/night), I will choose two participants who signed in at the STARTING LINE to pick a prize from the PRIZE PAGE.
  • The first mini-challenge has already been posted.  It was part of the sign-in post your reading list/plans/image/etc.  This mini-challenge will stay open until Saturday at 8:00am CST so people who are joining us for just the weekend can be a part of it too.  There will be two winners for this mini-challenge.  If you haven't done so yet, be sure to post your link at this POST.
  • I will have two more mini-challenges during the course of the read-a-thon.  There will be a mini-mini-challenge with one winner (probably on Wednesday) and a larger one at the end of the week with two winners again.
  • The number of winners could change (meaning=increase), if I happen to receive more prize donations during the read-a-thon.  
  • all winners are chosen randomly at
Be sure to check out the mini-challenges/giveaways being hosted by other bloggers/authors at this POST.

Now, without further ado, here are the daily participant winners from Monday:
