Important Announcements

A Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon is less than two days away! It starts at 12 midnight on Monday.  Have you signed up?  I have received a ton of prize donations and I have a few authors and bloggers hosting mini-challenges and giveaways so it's looking like it's going to be a fun time.  Like I ever had any doubt! If you'd like to sign up or read more about the read-a-thon, go HERE.  Or you can wait until it starts on Monday and sign in at the starting line.  All participants must sign in at the starting line to be eligible for the giveaways.   Remember, you can join us at any time during the week of the read-a-thon.  Just be sure to sign in when you're ready to start.  Again, the sign-in post will go live on Monday at midnight.  Hope you will join me!

I recently announced a new reading challenge which I am co-hosting with Kate from Read 2 Review.  The Stephen King Challenge is a perpetual reading challenge and will start on February 1, 2012.  To encourage regular reading of the books (because, let's face it, we all tend to procrastinate when there is no eminent deadline), there will be periodic mini-challenges with prizes and we will have occasional read-a-longs.  Of course, I will be participating, as well as Kate, but we will be excluded from winning any prizes, of course.  For more information about the challenge and to sign up (I hope you will), please visit the dedicated blog.

Yes, I signed up for one more reading challenge! Amber at The Musings of ALMYBNENR is hosting the 2012 Tudor Reading Challenge.  Of course, I couldn't resist this one, for my love for the Tudors knows no bounds.  LOL! Plus, it will fit in nicely with the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge.  Certainly looking forward to it! Of course, my progress on the challenge will be tracked at my challenge blog.



Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. I'm really excited, but I'll have a lot going on for the next week - parents moving house and I'm moving country - so I might not be able to post for some time, but I'll be doing it - reading furiously :D
    Thanks a lot for setting this up!

  2. Can't wait to start the read-a-thon. The Tudor Challenge looks fun but I promised myself no more challenges this year. I'm like you though. Some may think the Tudors are way overdone but I can't get enough of them!

  3. Completely forgot to email you! I'll donate a book for a giveaway - I've got a couple and will let the winner pick whichever he/she wants.

  4. Great challenges! If I hadn't already read just about every. single. Stephen King book. ever ... I would sign up for the Stephen King challenge myself!
