FrightFall Read-a-Thon...Sign-Up!


It's here! The official sign up for the FrightFall Read-a-Thon! A week long fest of scary reading (well, at least one scary book anyway).  All you have to do to participate is read at least one horror/scary book.  For the faint-hearted among you, it can be a spooky mystery, a scary thriller, or something classically gothic.  Children's books are also allowed. It's not so much about the quantity of our reading, but the quality, right? But...if this read-a-thon helps you to mark a bunch of books off your TBR pile, so be it! As you all know, I will not be hosting any mini-challenges. I prefer to focus on the reading, as many of my participants do. However, if anyone else would like to host a mini-challenge, you are more than welcome.  Of course, there will be a big giveaway at the end.  And we will have a few scheduled Twitter chats again. Schedule will be listed in the starting line post. Our twitter hashtag is #FrightFall. As I did during High Summer, I will post a midway check in too.

Official dates and times for the read-a-thon...Monday, September 30 at 12:00am EST through Sunday, October 6 at 11:59pm EST (adjust times according to your particular time zone).

Sign up in the linky below.  You do not have to do a post now, unless you want to help spread the word (hint, hint...)  If you don't have a blog, use Facebook, Twitter or Goodreads.  Having a blog is not required.  Be sure to grab the button at the top of this post.  (Don't forget that this is just the sign-up linky.  There will be starting line sign-in and wrap-up linkies during the read-a-thon and doing both is required to be eligible for the giveaway).

I am looking for prize donations so if anyone would like to contribute, let me know.  Authors, this is a great way to promote your book! Email me--truebookaddictATgmailDOTcom

Looking forward to a week of fun with the spooky and not so spooky! Hope you will join me. =O)

  1. Best of luck! I so wish I could join, but I don't have the time. Too much is going on. That said, I'm planning to read Bram Stoker's Dracula in October. It's all because of that book I mentioned, Stoker's Manuscript. Such an awesome book on audio. I remember seeing your question about it being on OverDrive. Yep, that's where I downloaded it from. Knowing your taste in books, you will LOVE-LOVE-LOVE it!

  2. I'm absolutely joining this. It's right up my alley as someone that's current applying to graduate schools to study Gothic literature. It also starts on my birthday! I'm excited to check a couple of good classic Gothic novels off of my to-read list that week!

  6. I'm looking forward to it, though I admit it snuck up on me this time. I will finish the books I have commitments to read, then get some titles in place for a post about it. Thanks, Michelle, as always.

  8. I'm just returning to blogging regularly, actually reading the blogs I follow, etc. after a crazy busy summer, so this is just the ticket to get me back in the swing of things! I'm looking forward to it!
