    Hallo, Hallo everyone!

    I have been wicked enthused and excited about this readathon starting! I am off to a great start as I read my first selection earlier this morning and I can finally reveal my full TBR for the readathon tonight! πŸ™‚ I have a mixture of genres, stories in print, stories in audiobook – some of these are from my personal library and only a few are for review consideration.

    I look forward to travelling through to see what everyone else is selecting to read and I found a few challenges I’m excited to join as well! Happy reading to everyone joining!

    Thanks for hosting Kimberly! I love your readathons! They give me the chance to get organised and into the stories I have longed to read for quite an age!

    I just signed up. I had fun with this challenge last year, and am looking forward to it again!

  3. Carla

    I think I will join in. I will post a page to link to in the next day or so. I hope to read 5 holiday books over the 10 days.

      Hallo, Hallo Vi,

      I was going to add a comment on your blog tonight about #HoHoHoRAT however its not giving me the option for Name/URL – therefore, I wanted to pop back here and say, it was lovely seeing some Debbie Macomber books on someone’s TBR! I used to read her novels all the time and then, somehow my readerly life took me away… I still fully intend to back-read a few of her series (esp Cedar Cove, as I only made it to book 4 I think?) and the Blossom Street series… however, outside her Angels series, I never had the chance to dive into her Christmas novels. Which do you think I ought to start with first? I might check to see if the audio is avail this year – even if not for the readathon, maybe in December/Jan which are the other months (outside of Nov) I love to read these!

      Best of luck with your TBR!

    I’m so excited for this event! Christmas is my favorite time of year, and I’m already adding books for this event to my TBR as we speak! Thanks for hosting these readathons. They’re giving me the perfect excuse to read books that I really want to read, or have had on my TBR for a while, but have pushed to the side for ARCS.
