The more you participate the more entries you will earn for the Participant Giveaway. As always, we are looking for Challenge host please email, tweet or message Kimba or myself. We have posted early so that you have plenty of time to find those holiday/winter reads and clear your schedules. 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. Looking forward to spending time with you.
