Let it snow. Grab the hot cocoa, crank up the holiday music. Too soon? Agreed, but it is time to mark your calendar and sign up for our annual Ho-Ho-Ho Readathon. During the thon we encourage you to read or listen to as many holiday or winter themed books as you can. There will be fun events, contests, prizes and more. Get all the details below, then sign up and invite your bookish friends!

Tenth Annual Ho-Ho-Ho Read-A-Thon

This year the annual #HoHoHoRAT will begin at 12:01 am Friday, November 18th and will end Wednesday, November 30th at 11:59 pm in your time zone.

So grab your holiday reads, your winter books, your yuletide murder-mysteries, your naughty & nice romances and even your holiday horror and get ready for some fun! Audiobook, library book, ebook, old book or new book. Don’t forget the hot chocolate!

Host A Challenge

BE AN ELF: We need Challenges hosts. Please email me, if you’d like to host a challenge for the event. You will need to provide a small international prize. Create a festive puzzle, exchange recipes, create a spine poem, make a bingo board, or come up with your own clever idea.

  • Take part in at least one challenge and complete one book to be eligible for grand prize.

    I didn’t think I was going to participate because I have been away for a month, but when I saw your post this morning, I figured, why not? I am in, but won’t be an elf this year.
