Feb 3rd- Feb 5th weekend Read-A-Thon

I apologize in advance if I offend anyone.  I am a Reader and a Challenge Addict!!!  I am not a sports person.
There is all this noise about some big sports game on this weekend, everybody getting excited about grown men getting into a circle and whisper what they are going to do with a ball, they try, it doesn't happen, they go back in a circle, whisper again, and on and on.  You get the picture?

Well in my house, I am banned from the family room, that's where the TV is, and am not allowed to talk, because when I do add my opinion, my family just shake their heads and ignore me.  

Well...I'll show them.  I am having my own party, in my own room and they are not welcomed, but you are.  I saw this on Lori's blog, Escape With Dollycas Into a Good Book.  It's a Read-A-Thon
The hosts for the wickedly wonderful weekend of reading are
Rebecca From Kindle Fire
April of My Shelf Confessions.

Here are some of the details if you want to join THIS party!!!
Since we had such a blast during the Wonderfully Wicked Read-A-Thon; after receiving such amazing feedback as we did, we decided to listen to what seemed to be all of the #WWReaders wishes and host #WWReadathon Vol. 2 — Wicked Winter Read-A-Thon!
Whether you are an old WWReader or a new one, you are extremely welcome to sign up an join in on the fun. Information and the sign up linky will be found below and I’m available for further questions via rebgeo@hotmail.com.
The Wicked Winter Read-A-Thon is a time when we all get together to dedicate the weekend of February 3-5 to as much reading as possible. You read as much as you can in order to get yourself a little further through that huge to-read pile! We know real life gets in the way and even if you can’t participate more than one day, you’re welcome to join in on the fun!
In the meanwhile, we will be hosting book-related challenges where you can win some awesome prizes and have a Twitter party at the hashtag #WWReadathon! You can posts updates on your blog, Twitter, Goodreads or Facebook — as long as the profile is public and we all can enjoy your reading progress!For this edition, we’ve also planned a chat surprise in order to include those who aren’t on Twitter in some chatting fun. But exactly what will happen is a surprise for now. ;)

Hope to see you there!!!

Sorry but if I don't wave my co host, partner, cohort, friend, business partner, BOSS, will fire me!!!  OK..now that is done, where was I.....oh yes....an announcement....

We are here because we signed up for many, many challenges.  Well, before Bev gets to you to sign up for more, I want to tell you about a Read-A-Thon that starts tomorrow.

Hosted by Michelle from The True Book Addict

It runs from January 23rd to January 29th.  Click on the above and it will take you right to the sign up page. Perfect intervention to help make a dent in all those challenges you signed up for.  And if you already signed up, like I did, Good Luck!!!

So I will be in hiding all week, hoping that RL does not interfere and that my family can't find me lol (shhhh..don't tell them where I am) and will be trying to read.

BTW.....January is almost over, how is everyone doing?  Making any progress?
Until we talk again...........................

I am so very excited for each and every one of you!

You have chosen to embrace yourself and start moving forward in your journey of completing what you start... well, all except Bev who still hasn't stopped starting...

So, get out your paper and start your checklist!

Or, have you found that you need some help?

If so, grab some some friends and get some help.

Or, maybe you're in a boat like I am...

where my friends are...

Bev, where I need to call an intervention

Or, Cheryl, who just smiles & waves....

And then there's me.. just lazing around reading...
Or, well, actually, lately I've been, um, well, playing solitare.

I know. I know.

But it is a point in my favor that I've not added any new challenges and am NO WHERE CLOSE to 31... Hint hint.

Happy New Year Everyone!!!!

And you know what that means.........

the 2012 Challenges have begun!!!!!!!!!

Get your books ready,  grab your favorite drink of choice,  get comfy and start reading!!!

Stop by often and let everyone know how you are doing,  the progress you are making, or if you need some cheering on if you get into one of those nasty little slumps or even finding out about any new challenges, that I am sure, that our resident Ms. Queen of Challenges, Bev will find for us.

Good Luck!!!!
