A Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon: Mini-Challenges/Giveaways


Hi there, fellow read-a-thon-ers! Please accept my apology for the late posting.  I was on a deadline for a review today.  I started reading it at midnight last night and promptly fell asleep about a 1/4 into the book.  So, had to finish it today.  Now that it's out of the way, time to get down to business!

These are the giveaways and mini-challenges that are being hosted by other bloggers and authors...the generous souls. =O)  Thanks very much to all of them!

All the prizes for the mini-challenges and giveaways I host here will come from the PRIZE PAGE.  

My first mini-challenge, posted today in the starting line post, was to do a post or link to your reading list, pic, etc. for the week.  You can enter this by entering the link to your post, Tweet, Facebook note, Goodreads read-a-thon shelf (however you are participating), at the Starting Line post HERE.  I'm keeping this mini-challenge open until Saturday morning at 8:00am CST for people who will only be joining us for the weekend.

If anyone has any questions, leave me a comment, tweet me at the #WintersRespite hashtag, or email me at truebookaddictATgmailDOTcom.



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 wanted to take a picture of my reads but all of them except Scorpio Races are on my kindle can I just take a picture of the book and my kindle or should I find the covers online?

  2. I'll be having fun browsing these challenges :)
    I'll definitely post a pic of my tbr soon. I've got trashy Romance and some horror to read this week.

  3. tattoogirlreads--that is perfectly fine, but an image is totally optional. It's all for fun...books are so photogenic, you know. =O)
