    I dont have time right now to do a readathon but I am having so much fun watching what everyone is reading… I am looking for a few more Christmas reads to dive into this year!

  2. Shari

    First year participating and I am excited even if I am nervous because I have no clue what I am doing other than reading!

    Going to try to get a post up now with my reading list!

    The Holidays are officially here. As I’m getting older, I’m finding myself reading more holiday themed books than ever before. Don’t get me wrong, I still love a good thriller, but there’s something magical about reading a Christmas story this time of year!

    oh dear… Christmas already? I’m not ready! While I’m not participating, you can be sure I’ll still come read your reviews
