Back by popular demand, Jennifer @ The Book Shelfery (formerly Bawdy Book Blog) and Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer are once again hosting the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-A-Thon. So break out the cocoa, the coffee, and cookies! Grab those holiday theme books and bring your holiday spirit. Prepare to enter challenges, win prizes, meet new friends and Twitter chat with us.

Check out their blogs for more information!

My goals for this read-a-thon:

  • At least one review of a Christmas book. I just read The Heart of Christmas by Brenda Novak so it’s not eligible as one of the books I read for the read-a-thon, but I want to have at least one review of a holiday book during the read-a-thon
  • Read at least one holiday book or several short stories
  • My list of possible books:
    • Mistletoe Mysteries–stories collected by Charlotte MacLeod
    • Shakespeare’s Christmas by Charlaine Harris
  • Write review and post it before the end of the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-Thon
  • Participate in at least one challenge
  • Tweet my progress
  • Participate in the Twitter Party on Sunday

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

    1. Thanks, Jennifer! I’ve read a few Brenda Novak books in the past, but this one isn’t my favorite. I think that’s mostly me though!


    1. Thanks! Usually the only holiday-themed books I find are Christmas books. I’ve seen Valentines and Halloween books, of course, but not really other winter holiday books besides Christmas. I’m probably not looking in the right places. I do remember reading a book years ago to my kids about a Jewish girl (the only Jew in her class) coming to terms with all the Christmas celebrations at her school.
