Festive readathon shenanigans – update


I had a great Thanksgiving week surrounded by friends who are like family. We went to the library and picked out books, played football outside, went to a College basketball game, cooked a lot of food, played tons of boardgames, and watched a few Christmas movies. I was able to finish The Picture of Dorian Gray, Supernatural Tales, and started reading Welcome to the Show. I am counting all those toward  #thankfullyreading, #csreadathon, and the  75 BOOKS (Goodreads group) Thanksgiving readathon.




The #csreadathon is actually part of the Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge, which runs through January 6. There are different levels to reach and I am well on my way to get to Christmas tree!





The #tistheseasonathon just ended last night and I am happy to report I was able to fulfill all their categories!



Here is my little summary of the books I’ve read since Thanksgiving (in the order I read them):

BOOK TITLE #csreadathon level #tistheseasonathon prompt
City of Ghosts Candy Cane (Read 1 book) Read a book while listening to holiday music
Christmas at the Comfort Food Cafe Mistletoe (Read 2-4 books Read a warm & fuzzy book
Snow in Love Mistletoe (Read 2-4 books Read our buddy-read book
The Gift Mistletoe (Read 2-4 books Read a holiday-themed book
Saga, Vol 1 Mistletoe (Read 2-4 books Read a short book (under 250 pages)
Krampus: The Yule Lord Christmas Tree (Read 5-6 books) Read a book with red or green on the cover


I am currently finishing up Magician: Apprentice which will mark book #6 for #csreadathon and also fulfills a Popsugar reading challenge. I am also listening to In Cold Blood.


How are you guys faring? Are you doing any reading challenges this month? I have two more upcoming: #magicalreadathon2018 organized by Book Roast and #shortathon18 hosted by Howling Libraries. Look out for updates for these on my blog and on my Twitter.

  1. Thank you so much for the shoutout and for joining! Also, I really love how you did the little table to show the books you’re combining readathons for, that’s such a smart idea! I always struggle with formatting my readathon TBRs, especially when I’m doing more than one readathon at a time, so I’m gonna have to try something like that!

    1. Thank you. I use a Google doc to keep track of my reading for the year. I’m glad you like the table idea. I also struggle with how to make sure I am smart about what book counts toward what 🙂
