A Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon

This coming week I'll be participating in my 2nd Read-A-Thon: A Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon hosted by Michelle @ The True Book Addict.  I had a lot of fun with the last one I participated in and it really motivated me to read a lot more for that week.  Also the mini-challenges were lots of fun too.  I'm hoping this Read-a-Thon will have the same result and I'll be blazing through books all week long.

I am hopefully finishing up my 2 library books Aztec Blood by Gary Jennings and The Mercy Seller by Brenda Rickman Vantrease this weekend.  Here are the four that I'd like to get done for during the Read-a Thon which starts on Monday:

  1. The Technologists by Matthew Pearl
  2. Enchantments by Kathryn Harrison
  3. A mystery novel by Georgette Heyer (haven't decided which yet-suggestions?)
  4. The Book of Lost Fragrances by M.J. Rose
We'll see how close I get to accomplishing that.  Wish me luck!  

PS: I believe sign ups are still open if you'd like to play too :)


  1. Enjoy the read-a-thong, I'm participating as well :)
    I love Georgette Heyer, Frederica is my fav, but thats romance, not mystery. I did enjoy Bath Tangle.

  2. Welcome to the read-a-thon! Looks like you have some good reads lined up. Just wanted to remind you to be sure to sign in at the starting line when you start reading. The post will be up at midnight tonight (Monday, 1/23 at 12:00am CST U.S. time). So glad you're joining me this week. Have fun!

  3. Just stopping in to offer a little cheer! I just realized that we're on most of the same book tours. Historical fiction rules! I also wanted to remind you to be sure to stop by the blog and check out the mini-challenges, giveaways, and the prize page.

    Happy Reading!

  4. Oh, I have The Book of Lost Fragrances too! I have it scheduled to be read next month for a tour. I hope you enjoy it!

    Good luck read-a-thonning!
