Christmas Is Coming! Time for a Christmas Challenge & Readathon

 

 
Michelle at Seasons of Reading is once again sponsoring her Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge. In short, the challenge runs from November 22, 2021 through January 6, 2022. The books read must be Christmassy in nature--novels, short story collections, books of poems, etc.
 
Three ways to participate:
1. Challenge: Pick a level
      ~Candy Cane: read 1 book
      ~Mistletoe: read 2-4 books
      ~Christmas Tree: read 5-6 books (this is the fanatic level...LOL!)
2. Readathon: read as much (or as little as you want)
3. Participate in both!

Additional levels for watching Christmas movies and reading children's books with your kids--but you must complete one of the main reading levels to fulfill the challenge.
 
 
I'm joining in for the Readathon and also at the Mistletoe level for the challenge. Come join us!

Get Ready to Be Challenged...in 2022


  And, yes, the holidays are coming. But...that's not what I mean. For reading challenge addicts like us, this time of year means that challenge hosts are putting together new versions of current challenges for 2022. Or, perhaps, they're dreaming up new challenges to make our addict hearts beat faster. 

Jamie @ Whatever I Think Of is the absolute best at tracking down challenges and has already spotted the first one. So, I will be setting up the links for next year's list of Reading Challenge Addict challengers as well as the ongoing list of reading challenges that get posted for 2022.

Summer Time and the Reading Is Easy

Hilda by Duane Bryers

 ...or at least it's supposed to be. Let's hope that we all have some down time this summer and can work in extra reading time. I'm going to need to squeeze in as much as possible because in August we're going back to live and in person at the university and I have a feeling that my reading time is going to suddenly drop to zero while I get used that whole transporting myself to office (instead of of my living room) thing again.

For those looking for Summer Challenges, I've updated the Challenge list, but here are a few that might tempt you.
