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.

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!!

MGR Reading Challenge: 2017 Book Bingo! #3

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

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!

  • 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.

  • Authors, no reading your own book, please.

  • 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.
