  1. I am so excited about participating in this read-a-thon again this year!! I just linked up today and have posted about the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-A-Thon my book blog!! I’ve already determined and set my reading goals for the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-A-Thon in my initial blog post, so I am assuming that I DO NOT need to make another post stating my goals, right?

    • Yay! The HoHoHo RAT is super fun! I’m glad you’re rejoining us! Nope, you do not need to create another post, as long as you created one before 11/6, you’re good to go 🙂

  2. My first holiday RAT – yeah! 🙂 I linked my post about it – but still need to set my personal goal. I better think low, though, as I’m trying to be realistic. 🙂 I requested some holiday things from Net Galley. -beth
