Winter's Respite Readathon--Sign Up Here! #WintersRespite


This is the official sign up for the Winter's Respite Readathon! All our regular seasonal readathons are now a month long so Winter's Respite runs for the entire month of January. Woot! So, we start at 12:00 am on January 1 and end at 11:59 pm on January 31. Times are set for the central time zone so adjust your times accordingly (you can use the link to the time zone converter in the sidebar menu). Of course, like most readathons, the books read must be novels or novellas, adult or young adult are fine, and you can read children's books (as long as you do read some novels too). Note: Non-Fiction is also okay! You DO NOT have to participate the entire month. Join in when you can, start in the middle, end early...whatever works best for your schedule. As with all of my readathons, it will be an event of relaxed reading during which we can personally challenge ourselves and whittle away those ever looming TBR piles/shelves/libraries.

Guidelines for the readathon can be found HERE or you can access in the sidebar menu. Any information you need about the readathon can be found there. Please do be sure to check the guidelines to make sure you're following along correctly. There are specific rules regarding signing up and wrapping up, especially in regards to the giveaway. Also, regarding the giveaway, I'll be again adding a Google form to capture names and email addresses so if you're interested in winning a prize (and you've met the sign up and wrap up criteria), I will ask you to fill in that form which will be located on the prize page. The form will now have a required field for you to enter the link to your wrap-up post.

As is typical, I will not be hosting any mini-challenges. However, if anyone else would like to host a mini-challenge or giveaway, you are more than welcome. I am also looking for prize donations so if anyone would like to contribute, let me know. Authors, this is a great way to promote your book! (Contact me using the contact form link in the sidebar menu).

Our hashtag is #WintersRespite Also, don't forget about our Facebook group. You can access via the link in the sidebar menu.

Sign up in the linky below. You do not have to do a post now, unless you want to help spread the word (much appreciated). If you don't have a blog, use Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Instagram, YouTube...or any social media. Having a blog is not required. Be sure to grab the button at the top of this post (there's also a grab code below the button in the sidebar).

  1. Hi Michelle. I’m looking forward to getting back on track. I’m going to try using Instagram as most of my book posts go there. It should be interesting to see how that will work out. Like Thomas the Train, I have an idea. I’m going to hand write my start up and wrap up posts then photograph them to post on Instagram.

  6. My TBR pile is threatening to topple over and bury me. It's hard to believe that I purchased most of this load in the last few months of 2017.
    I'm looking forward to this challenge. I will be reading fiction and nonfiction.

  8. This will be the perfect thing for cold, rainy January days. Get out the hot chocolate, add a dash of cinnamon and read in comfort!

  9. OK I'm on board for this month. I'll be posting the books on my Goodreads as I don't update my blog like I should. School is in it's last semester, so I hope to join more of these after May.

  11. Looking forward to participating in only my 2nd readathon. Over Christmas break I renewed my love of reading, and I hope to continue with the help of readathons. I'm a teacher and speech coach as well as a mother of two very active teens, so my reading time is limited, but hopefully I can read at least two books this month.

  12. Signing up very late, halfway into the month. But I'm hoping to pick up at least a couple of books!
