  1. I like Michelle's readathons, they're relaxed and fun. Enjoy this week!

    Love the pictures from your Friday post, by the way. Very nice. Could use some warm weather! 🙂

  2. yay Kristi – glad to find you here and at the readathon now too – should be good w/out pressure…

    If you like historical novels, Sarah is an excellent choice. Her debut last year was stunning “Heiress of Winterwood” – Looking forward to this newest – let me know what you think if you do p up & read it, ok?

    HapPy week!

  3. Hi – Just signed up for the readathon! I was hoping that my week was going to shape up so that I could read a bit in it. I think I am going to check out The Whispers on the Moors series – looks pretty good.
