Ho-Ho-Ho Holiday Read-a-thon

I've been eyeing the Ho-Ho-Ho Holiday Read-a-thon for a few weeks now, and I think I am going to take the plunge. This read-a-thon is being sponsored by Kimba of the Caffeinated Book Reviewer blog, and the crew at Bookshelfery. It runs from November 6-11, and luckily it is just the kind of low-stress read-a-thon I need right now.

However, this is the time of year when I am at my busiest, it seems like, so I am planning to set the bar as low as possible: ONE, short-ish, and hopefully highly readable book: The Christmas Train by David Baldacci. I found this gathering dust on my shelves -- don't know who bought it or when, actually, although I suppose I did. That's sad, I know, but all the more reason to go ahead and read it! Reading the synopsis off the cover, it puts me in mind of the movie Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, without the humor I suppose. We'll see. If you've read it, please comment!


  1. I hope you managed to squeeze in a little HoHoHo fun Randall!

  2. I've heard Baldacci's books are great, and I didn't know he had a christmas one. Need to check it out.
