We had such a blast cohosting #WinterReadathon that we‘re doing it again🤓📚🤗

A ‘choose your own goals‘ Readathon. It‘s easily adaptable to whatever life is throwing your way. We‘ll be doing the #DailyChallenges again.

We‘re looking for any ideas & input of what other ideas you‘d like to see & participate in.

Another BINGO card? A new weekly &/or a month long card? What prompt ideas does everyone have?


CoffeeNBooks Yay! So exciting! I loved the Bingo card and Daily Challenges for the #WinterReadathon. I also love a set of prompts. Maybe some sort of March Madness book bracket? 10mo
Read4life Love @CoffeeNBooks ideas! Especially the book bracket for March Madness 💙 10mo
AmyG Oh, Fun! 10mo

Started a new audiobook. Chose this one as I had enjoyed some of her Christmas themed books during #WinterReadathon. Hadn‘t realised it was in a series, so inadvertently started my first new series of 2023. 🙈 #SeriesLove2023 @TheSpineView

#JoyfulJanuary #JumpStart2023 @Clwojick @LizPixie

TheSpineView Oh well. Look at it as another series to enjoy. 11mo
Andrew65 @TheSpineView I am and it is a short one. 11mo
Clwojick Bahahahahha! It‘s hard to avoid them! 🫣 11mo

Having upped my reading game during the #WinterReadathon, I‘m going to try and join more readathon this year. My goal for #JoyousJanuary will be:
📚finish my current read, A Man Called Ove
📚read two of my #SeriesLove2023 books
📚keep up with the #BuddyRead of #Clarissa

It‘s an ambitious target for me!


Andrew65 We‘re very happy to have you with us. Best of luck with your goals. 😁 11mo

Three of the books I had put on hold at the library for #winterreadathon finally came in this week. 🤷🏼‍♀️ So I‘m reading them anyway.

Imagine my delight when the book nerd MC of the tagged is reading my fave Gaiman book! I do love when the MC is a book nerd.

@Andrew65 -After a break in December due to #WinterReadathon, the popular 9 day Choose Your Own Goal Readathons return in 2023.

These are the dates for the first 6 month this year. After January I have brought them forward in the month so they don‘t clash with @Clwojick and @TheAromaOfBooks#BacklistReadathon, making it easier for people to do both.

The Images for #JoyousJanuary will be posted in the next 24 hours. Hope to see you all there.

Finished this one that I started during the #WinterReadathon. I liked the first one better, but it was still a cute, cozy mystery.

Andrew65 Well done 🥳 I think ‘I preferred the first one too. Hopefully I‘ll get to the third one next year (or more accurately later this year 😳). 11mo
TheSpineView Great job! 11mo

Hermes: Heavenly Days | Alice Charbin, Rachael Canepari

What a luxurious book! But that is no surprise considering this is a book from the iconic brand, Hermès. I should expect nothing less from the fashion house.

The book is beautifully made. It has a gorgeous linen cover in the brand‘s iconic orange. The pages inside are so thick. I don‘t think I‘ve ever seen a book with pages this thick.

Week 5 was a low key one but I read what I was in the mood for when I had time. Did a couple #DailyChallenges but, mostly just tried to keep up lol😂

Thanks so much everyone for all the great posts and new book ideas, the laughs and the participation! The Readathon went off without a hitch & I‘m so happy to see everyone enjoyed themselves and got some if not lots of reading done.

Ruthiella Thank you for hosting! 😃 11mo
