A Winter's Respite Readathon 2017


I am joining one of my favorite readathons this week: A Winter's Respite Readathon hosted by Michelle at Seasons of Reading. This year, the readathon has been extended to two weeks, which is great!

What I love about this one is that it's very casual. The only rule is that you should read a lot. You don't have to read any specific genre or type of book (although you can't just read a bunch of picture books, I suppose). There's going to be a mid-event check-in and there will be prizes at the end. I'm really looking forward to it. Here's what I plan to read:


I've already read about half of Hidden Figures, so I am going to finish that and then move on to No Man's Land.


Readathon Wrap-Up

Here's my recap of this two-week readathon. I did finish Hidden Figures and ended up going to see the film as well. It was great! Then I moved on to No Man's Land and it took me a long time to get through this huge book, but I finished it! I still had about 75 pages left when the readathon ended, but I finished it the next day.

So in total, I read about 200 pages in Hidden Figures and 497 pages in No Man's Land during the readathon, for a total of almost 700 pages! Pretty good for me for a two-week period!

  2. Great to have you with us on another readathon! Your reading choices are great. I'm intrigued by the Tolkien book. Will have to look into that one. Enjoy your readathon reading!
