Time to wrap up the #FrightFall #Readathon


Where did the time go? We have come to the end of FrightFall! I hope everyone enjoyed the readathon. Just remember...enjoyment is the topmost goal. If you didn't meet your goals, don't sweat it.

I'd like to thank you all for joining me. Be sure to add your wrap-up link below and please double check that your name is listed in the sign up/starting line linky at this post so you will be eligible for the giveaway. You will also need to fill out the form on the prize page if you would like to win a prize. You have until Sunday, November 5 at 11:59 pm central time to add your wrap-up link and to fill out the form on the prize page. I will draw giveaway winners in the following few days after the wrap-up deadline so keep a look out in your email inbox (or spam folder, just in case) for an email from truebookaddict. (Please be sure to note the system of drawing winners in the giveaway details on the prize page).

Now let's have a big round of applause for the authors, and for Sinister Grin Press, who so generously donated our prizes. Bravo...and thank you!

Also, thank you to Steven Karalash for helping me with the cheerleading duties. And really, everyone who interacts in our Facebook group...you all rock!

Now on to upcoming events and news...

I put up a poll in the Facebook group regarding making all four of the seasonal readathons a month long. I have to say, I really like the month long format. It's so low key...no pressure. Not surprisingly, the majority of voters chose "Yes," followed closely by "fine either way." (If you would like to view the poll, click here. You may need to have a Facebook account to see it. I'm not sure).

So, with that consensus, January's Winter's Respite, April's Spring into Horror, July's High Summer, and of course, October's FrightFall will all have the month long format. Woot! Also, you will see below that the Christmas Spirit Readathon is now two weeks and so SciFi Summer in June will also now be two weeks long.


The Christmas Spirit Readathon is going to have a twist this year! It's going to be a Christmas and Scary Readathon. What does that mean? Well, you can read Christmas, or you can read scary, or you can read both. For example, A Christmas Carol could also be labeled as scary/spooky because of the ghosts. Dickens also wrote other spooky Christmas tales (check his "Christmas Books"). However, don't think your scary has to have a Christmas theme. You can read non-holiday scary, or you can read a Christmas themed mystery (which can sometimes be scary), or you can choose all Christmas books. It's entirely up to you! I will have sign ups for the readathon and the Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge (hosted at my Christmas blog, Christmas Spirit) posted by next week...hopefully. 

Well, that's it! Thanks again for joining us. Will be seeing you next time!
