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.

Congratulations winners!!

See ya all next year everyone!

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


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.

MGR Reading Challenge: 2017 Book Bingo! #3

Welcome to the third an final card of Mocha Girls Read Reading Challenge for 2017.  

The previous years we have had a spell it out challenge where everyone had to spell out “Mocha Girls Read 16”.  But this year we are going to change it completely and do Book Bingo!  For the final 2017 reading challenge, we are going to do what Mocha Girls do.  We are going to read a wide range of books.  That is what this book club does.

What is Book Bingo? 

Have you played Bingo?  Welllll….Same thing.  Pick a square and read a book that fits the theme of that square.  When you complete two lines, whether it’s a straight line or a diagonal line then you have a bingo.  But this time only straight lines and no diagonals!

~ The Rules ~

  • Audiobook, E-books and physical books count.
  • One book per square
  • At the end of April, you must check in here and post your reads.
  • Books must be read from September 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017
  • Authors, no reading your own book, please.
  • Must complete 2 STAIRGHT lines.
  • No signing up needed.  Just check in from December 31 to January 6

During the four months, we will post books suggestions for you to check out if you are having difficulties finding a book to fit a few of the squares.

This card is good from Sept. 1 to December 31, 2017.  This is the last card of 2017.

~ The Prize ~

You will win a mystery book.  One book will be shipped to you and the title will not be revealed until you open it.

~ 2nd Bingo Card ~

Click the card to download and print it if you need to.

Good Luck and check back to get suggestions on what to read to win.
