Ho-Ho-Ho Holiday Read-a-Thon : Let the fun begin! #HoHoHoRAT

November 9, 2018 Book Event 2

HoHoHo, it’s readathon time.  My fourth year joining, I think.  So of course I had to drag out the ‘poem’ I wrote in its honour many years ago.  Apologies in advance for my ridiculousness but it’s the season to be cheesy, right? 🙂  If you have no clue what HoHoHo RAT is, then click the picture below.




Ode to HoHoHo Readathon!

Twas the month before Christmas, and all through reader-land

Not a creature was stirring, just as hoped and planned.

We had hunted on Goodreads for books full of cheer,

In sure and certain knowledge that HoHoHo was finally here.


The readers snuggled down on sofas and on beds,

And all sorts of Christmas tales lived out  in our  heads.

Some with old favs and some with new buys

All had a fab read-a-thon with many happy sighs!


HoHoHo RAT 2018, it’s read-a-thon time!

But  not just any old read-a-thon, nope this is the seasonal one to get us all in the holiday mood.  In all honesty, I tend to be a Christmas Grinch.  But by joining HoHoHo every year, I read myself right in to the Christmas mood.  So I’m hoping to do the same again this year.

I've a Christmas playlist on Spotify, lashings of hot chocolate and a stack of Christmas books. Basically, #HoHoHoRAT is the most wonderful readathon of the year! Click To Tweet
