2nd Annual Black Friday Readathon ’17: Completed and Winners

Hosted by DuLivre, Mocha Girls Read, and Books and Sensibility

We are done.

Another read-a-thon completed.

You did it!!

This read-a-thon was good.  We had a great time reading, doing reading challenges, and chatting on Twitter.  Of course, there were naps.  I mean how can you not take a nap after eating Thanksgiving Dinner leftovers for lunch.  That is nap waiting to happen.

So I completed 1 book..   

…and started two others.  I think I will finish one of them before Monday.  Unfortunately, finishing the two books will not get me caught up on my Goodreads Reading Challenge.  I need to get a few childrens book from the library to get to the 55 books a year goal.

Tons of tea was consumed too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now on to the winners of the reading challenges.

10 WORD STORY Twitter winner is Exo Supremacist.  He won a mystery book package.

 

Mocha Girls Read BOOK PUZZLE winner is Areeba Naaz.  She won a book from Amazon ($10 value)

And last but not least the Facebook BOOK POETRY winner is Emmanuelle Schick.  She won an audiobook of Nightshade for Waring by Bailey Cattrell.

2nd Annual Black Friday Readathon ’17: My TBR

Hosted by DuLivre, Mocha Girls Read and Books and Sensibility.

I am so looking forward to this.  I love read-a-thons because they FORCE me to sit and spend the day reading.  I don’t need to be forced but you know how life can interfer with a day off.  All of sudden you have a few errands to run and next thing you know the day is over.  So for me scheduling a read-a-thon in my month helps me to read and do nothing else.

So for the day I am planning the following.

Host 3 giveaways.

Finish one audiobook

Start one paperback

Cheer on other readers via Website, Twitter, and Facebook using #BFRaT

My TBR

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

From Compton to Congress by Walter Tucker III

(If Time Permits) My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella









I am hoping to finish at least one of them.
