10. MONTHLY KEY WORD hosted by Bev at My Reader’s Block

Guidelines:
*** The title you choose can be a variation on one of the key words. For example- your title could include the word ‘icicle’ or ‘icing’ even though the key word is ‘ice.’
*** Key words can be tweaked. For example- You could read a book with “Bowler” or “Bonnet” for the key word ‘Hat’ and that would be just fine. If the key word is ‘Family’ then your title could include the word ‘Sister’ or ‘Father.’If the key word is ‘Food’ then your title could include the word ‘Cake.’

2018 READ-A-THONS

 


24 IN 48 READATHON hosted by Rachel @ 24 in 48 Readathon

The #24in48 will be taking place on Jan. 27-28, 2018!

Details: Participants read for 24 hours out of that 48-hour period. You can split that up however you’d like.

Progress and times will be updated here:

Saturday:
12:30 am to 03:30 am (3 hours) Reading THE FOURTH GUNMAN by John Lansing
11:00 am to 03:30 pm (4½ hours)
07:00 pm to 08:00 pm (1 hour)
Not as much reading as I had hoped, it never fails, when I sign up I have good intentions and then RL interferes.
Sunday:
09:00 am to 12:30 pm (3½ hours)
01:30 pm to 03:30 pm (2 hours)
05:00 pm to 08:30 pm (3½ hours)
Total: 18½ hours. Almost. Maybe next time!
