A Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon: Mid-Week Check-In #WintersRespite

I'm making myself stand in the corner for being a bad read-a-thon host. I have decided that I will no longer schedule these read-a-thons for the end of the month. I work from home and end of the month is my most hectic work time. I finally realized the problem! For future reference the Winter, Spring and Summer read-a-thons will be the third week of the month and the FrightFall one will be the first full week in October. I must save my sanity somehow!

So, I'm just now making my way around to your blogs and...guess what? I didn't even post a starting post myself. Doh!

Have you checked out the prize page yet? We have some great prizes from some generous authors...and from me too! You can check it out HERE or by clicking the tab in the menu above.

I've decided to have the Twitter chat on Saturday at 8:30pm CST/9:30pm EST. Remember out hashtag is #WintersRespite Hope to "see" you there!

If you post an update, feel free to share the link in the comments.

Happy Reading!

  1. I hope you brought a book and a cup of tea to the corner to keep you company! ;) Don't feel bad about the work conflict--understandable. Third week of the month is a good plan for next time.

    I got off to a good start on the weekend, finishing one book, which I had already started (The Poisonwood Bible), but I haven't had much reading time the rest of this week. I hope to finish at least one more book over the weekend. In any case, the Read-a-thon helps me to line up the books I'd most like to read next, even after the read-a thon is over. Thanks, as always. :) See you for chat on Saturday!

  2. Doing pretty good with this readathon-I finished one book last night(The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet), am midway through another(A Week in Winter) and just started a new one(Frozen Heat). Not bad for a midwinter vacy there!

  3. I am so excited to join your readathons! I just found this today!

  4. I'm glad you enjoyed it, Carol. You got a lot of reading done. Wow!

    I added this comment to the wrap-up linky since you don't have a blog. :) See you next time!
