#ThanksgivingReadathon Wrap-Up
Book Review / November 27, 2017

  I can’t believe Thanksgiving has already flown by. This means the first official #ThanksgivingReadathon has sadly come to a close. It was an amazing 5 days of reading and sharing the books we were reading. #ThanksgivingReadathon was a beautiful blur of thankfulness I needed in my life. I am thankful to everyone who participated so readily! We had over 20 people take part in the readathon!! I cannot believe it. After last year where 3 of us read together, this feels amazing. I loved following along on social media with #ThanksgivingReadathon — it was amazing reading the sign-up posts and Tweets, plus all the photos! Thanksgiving meals, cozy reading corners, and beautifully framed book covers dominated my social media feeds. Check out the list of participants at the bottom of this post to see for yourselves! Jackie B’s #ThanksgivingReadathon Successes My own Thanksgiving Readathon participation was more successful than I imagined it was going to be. I didn’t have as much time to read paper or eBooks as I predicted. I spent a lot of time with my family. But, David and I listened to a book during our 16-hour round-trip car ride to my parents, and I listened to books whenever…

#ThanksgivingReadathon Announcement
Read-a-thon / November 13, 2017

  It was only last year when I really started putting myself out there in the blogosphere. When I started blogging, I was talking into the void and it satisfied me. I was a bit nervous that no one would want to talk to me, honestly. Am I thankful that I decided to put myself out there! One of the first bookish friends I made through blogging is Ottavia @ Novels and Nonfiction. She writes intelligent posts and is a considerate and thoughtful member of the community. I was so happy when we connected! Finally, I realized that there was a place for me in this crazy world of blogging. There were people like me. Last year, Ottavia and I were chatting and realized we both needed an excuse to sit back and read the week of Thanksgiving. Me? I needed to escape from the family a bit. Her? Well, I won’t put words in her mouth. We agreed to read and tweet and prioritize reading time for ourselves. It was a great, low-key experience. We both enjoyed it and knew we wanted to share the love with the world next year: And thus, the Thanksgiving Readathon was born!  …
