So It's that time again! It is time for the annual HOHOHO readathon hosted by Kimberley @CaffeinatedPR. This has been running for 11 years! I've only joined a few times and I'm never hugely successful at reading as much as i plan to, but I hope to read a few more than normal this year! I absolutely love a Christmas book and I can't wait to get all snuggled under a blanket with a hot chocolate and my Christmas books next month!!
Read-A-Thon Rules & Guidelines
Link-up! It is unnecessary to link to goal post but of course we love them. You can link to the social media platform you will use to track your reading. This can be your blog, or a special Goodreads Shelf you create. Be sure to label the shelf hohohorat2023. You can use a social media account, but you’ll need to tag me and use hashtag #2023HoHoHoRAT. (I must be able to see it. So friend me there)
Declare your intentions on your blog or through social media. Be sure and link back to this HoHoHo Readathon Sign-up page. Linky will close November 24th, so be sure to link up, even if you will only take part for a few days.
Grab the image and share! Tell your friends, post the image and link on social media using X (Twitter), Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, TikTok, or Instagram, Threads and others. Be sure to include a link to this page, so others may join.
Take part in at least one challenge and complete two books to be eligible for grand prize.
Read or listen to as many Holiday or Winter themed books as you can from any genre. If you are unsure, contact me. Goodreads is an excellent source for finding Winter & Holiday reads. Ask your librarian.
Tweet your progress using #2023HoHoHoRAT
