Spring into Horror Read-a-Thon - Starting Line #SpringHorrorRAT

Welcome to the starting line. I know...I'm late!!! Sorry! Are you ready for some scary reading? I hope everyone is not worn out from Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon. It's time to put some scare in our Spring!

Be sure to sign in here, at the beginning, or when you start reading this week. Remember, you do not have to have a blog to join us. You can sign in linking to Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads...wherever you will be updating from. And you don't have to start at the beginning. Start on any day this week, or if you're working all week, join us for the weekend. People can sign in up until Friday night at 11:59pm CST. I'll be stopping by and visiting you so I hope you will have your book piles/reading lists posted. Make sure at least one book is a scary one. Also, a reminder that I do allow children's books. Any books are allowed, as long as one is spooky. In my opinion, it's the quality of what we read that counts, not the quantity so no pressure to read vast amounts, unless you just really, really want to, or you're wired that way (you know who you are!). If you want to read the original sign-up post, you can take a look HERE.

Join us on Twitter using the hashtag #SpringHorrorRAT. We are going to have three Twitter chats this week. I tried to have a good variance of time. Hope one of the slots will work for everyone. Here's the Twitter chat schedule:

Wednesday from 8:00 to 9:00pm CST
Friday from 9:00 to 10:00pm CST 
Sunday from 2:00 to 3:00pm CST  Time change 6:00pm to 7:00pm CST

I will be checking in on Twitter on and off throughout the week too. Just remember to have fun this week. Again, my read-a-thon credo is "a week of relaxed reading during which we can personally challenge ourselves and whittle away those ever looming TBR piles/shelves/libraries." I have done away with mini-challenges so we can focus more on the reading, but please do stop by and visit your fellow read-a-thon-ers if you get a chance...and again, we will also be on Twitter for social interaction. I will also post a mid-week check-in on Thursday so you can share your progress if you like.

I will have the prize page posted during the day on Monday (or Tuesday) so come back here to find it (Unfortunately, the prizes are slim pickings this time). I will also have easy access links at the top of the blog to the prize page, the sign-in post, etc. 

Okay, I think that's about it. I hope you all have fun this week. If you have any questions, please leave me a comment below, or contact me via the form by clicking the 'contact' tab at the top. I will be posting my updates at my blog, The True Book Addict, so I hope you will stop by and visit me. 

Happy Reading!
