A Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon

I am really excited about this week, because for the first time in a loooong time I may actually have some spare moments to read a book.

My challenges so far for the Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon, as hosted the lovely Michelle over at The True Book Addict are as follows:

  • The Scarlett Letter, by Nathaniel Hawthorne, for #Tuesbooktalk (and which I am massively behind on)
  • The Hambledown Dream, by the wonderfully talented Dean Mayes
  • Heir to the Shadows, by Anne Bishop (a book I have read before, but which relaxes me after a stressful day)
I am working a full six days this week, rather than my usual five-and-a-half, so I may not get as much done as I would like. However, my evenings are free for some very happy reading.

P.S. I have already read for a couple of hours tonight, so I'm off to a great start!


  1. Oh wow! I just saw this and it made me smile a big smile.

    The kids love your book. It's become a favorite bed time read!

  2. Yay, so glad you're in! Sorry you have to work more hours this week. Hope you still get some good reading in. How are you liking Scarlet Letter? Is it a reread for you? As much as I to admit it, I'm really struggling with it. Anyway, have fun reading!

    Also, Be sure to stop by the blog and check out the mini-challenges, giveaways, and the prize page.

    1. Fingers crossed I get some reading in :) I've been good so far.

      I enjoyed the Scarlet Letter at first, but I'm not in the right head space at the moment to wade through the language of it. I have never read it before so want to know what happens, but I can't bring myself to concentrate on it.

      I'll be sure to pop by your blog several times during the week :)

      Good luck with the challenge!

  3. Hi Dean, I'm so happy they like it! That makes ME break into a smile.

    I'm enjoying your book so much. Anything that can make me cry in the opening scene is brilliant in my opinion :)

  4. Just checking in with you to see how it's going. Yeah, I don't think I was in the right state of mind for Scarlet Letter either, but I did finish it. :) Thank goodness! Let me know how you're doing with the read-a-thon. I'm on twitter...just add #WintersRespite to your tweet.

    Also, I have the mid-week read-a-thon mini-challenge posted. All the links to mini-challenges/giveaways are listed below the read-a-thon banner just above the post section (below the slide show). Stop on by!

    1. Thanks, Michelle, I'll check them out. The mini-mini challenge looks like fun :)

      It looks like you're doing really well with the challenge, great work!
