I would deem the first annual HoHoHo Readathon a great success!  And we have you guys to thank for it.  I had such a blast reading my christmas ARCs and finding new books to add to the list (and boy did I!).  The Twitter party was a great success, too!  It was so awesome to chat with y’all and discuss the most wonderful time of the year!

\r\n

I want to give special thanks to our Elves:

They did a really great job on the challenges.  I did not participate, because I didn’t want to put myself in the prize pool as a host, but it was awesome and everyone else seemed to enjoy them, too!  Great job!

\r\n\r\n

I especially want to thank Kimba from Caffeinated Reviewer.  

\r\n

I came to her months ago about doing a Christmas readathon, and we hashed out some details, but boy did I let the ball drop.  Kimba picked up that ball and totally ran with it, and basically she put 99% of this thing together for us while I dealt with some personal stuff.  Kimba…YOU ROCK.

\r\nI couldn’t devote 100% of my time to reading over the last five days, but this RAT totally and completely crushed my burnout!  I finished 3 books and am almost done with book 4!  Here’s where I stood at the end of the day yesterday:\r\n

Jennifer became addicted to books when she randomly picked up a Sweet Valley High book in grade school. She never looked back. After blowing through the SVH and SVU series faster than her parents could put them in her hands, she began perusing her stepfather's bookshelves and reading fantasy like Piers Anthony's Incarnations of Immortality series, which she still maintains is some of the best fantasy ever. She collects books like the Duggar family collects kids and began waiting for her Hogwarts letter at the tender age of 33.

  1. My post goes live in 30 minutes- I think..LOL It was a blast and you did good with the reads. I didn’t do the challenges as host either. Thanks for your kind words, but really we planned it, and I just set things up. Next year we will plan the twitter party ahead of time so more peeps can attend. I cannot believe we trended..LOL Thanks Jen, it was wonderful hosting this event with someone who enjoys holiday reads as much as I do.
