Ho-Ho-Ho Holiday Read-A-Thon - Sign Up

Ho-Ho-Ho Holiday Read-A-Thon hosted by BookShelfery and The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I have decided to take part in an early Christmas Read-A-Thon. My goal will only be to read 3 holiday themed or winter setting reads as there are other books I want to read as well. But that doesn't stop me from having a huge list to chose from.

List of books to chose from at the bottom of this post.

Back by popular demand, Kimba from The Caffeinated Book Reviewer and I are once again hosting the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-A-Thon!
So break out the cocoa, the coffee, and cookies! Grab those holiday theme books and bring your holiday spirit. Prepare to enter challenges, win prizes, meet new friends and Twitter chat with us. You can join for a day or sit by the fire and hang out every day. The more you participate the more entries you will earn for the Participant Giveaway.

We love holiday themed reads from the covers to the warm & fuzzy tales on the inside. For this read-a-thon you must read holiday themed or winter setting reads. For bloggers, we have spoken to most of the main publishing houses and for ARCS of holiday books released in Sept/Oct, they are fine with you posting a review in November and December since that is when folks look to buy them. Below are the rules. Read them, grab the button and link up. For our non-blogger friends you can join too. Just link your Goodreads, Tumblr or Facebook account.
