It’s the first day of the Winter BIBIB! This is one of my favourite readathons and I participate every round. You can see more on their YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter.

The first blog challenge is by Tracy @ Truffle’s Literary Wonders, and for a snappy title I’m going to call it the snowstorm challenge!
