Down The Read-A-Thon Hole Challenge | TBR

 

The time has come my little friends to talk of many things, of books, and blogs and readathons, of blogiversaries!

With my 5 year blogiversary quickly approaching I thought it would be fun to host a Read-A-Thon. With my obsession with Alice in Wonderland I thought it would only be appropriate to make it an Alice in Wonderland themed read-a-thon. I reached out to some other book bloggers to help me with this because I love getting others inputs and sharing the love. 

 

WHAT IS THE DOWN THE READ-A-THON HOLE CHALLENGE  ?

The  Down The Read-A-Thon Hole Challenge runs from Thursday, February 1 to Thursday, February 15. During this read-a-thon you will select books to complete a bingo card, with each box earning you points as well as a bingo. In addition to the main challenge, you will have opportunities to earn even more points by participating in the themed bonus challenges using a blog/twitter/instagram.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Today of all days the White Rabbit did not have the time for silly little girls. He only had one errand to run, not get chased by a young girl, or have a spot of tea. With his pocket watch destroyed he has no sense of time. Being late today would have his head.

I am not good at this at all, but would love to see others!
