#Christmas Spirit #Readathon 2019 - It's time! #CSreadathon


If you're joining us, remember these things:
  • Try to read at least one Christmas book...it is a Christmas readathon, after all. But I'm not a huge stickler for rules so if you absolutely despise Christmas books, read other books.
  • You do not have to have a blog. Join us from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Goodreads, etc.You can also interact with us in our Facebook group, Goodreads group and check out our Instagram
  • The linky below is the same as the sign-up linky so if you've already signed up and now want to link up your reading plans, just add your link and put reading plans in parentheses (ex. Michelle (reading plans). 
  • If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via the contact form, or visit the readathon guidelines page for answers, both in the sidebar menu.
  • If you're checking in on social media (Twitter, Instagram, etc.) our hashtag is #CSreadathon
  • Just a reminder, I have eliminated the wrap-up linky and we are now just using the Google form for wrap-ups (since I require your wrap-up link there anyway). That way you don't have to do two steps at the end of the readathon. The wrap-up Google form will be on the wrap-up post instead of the prize page. I will have a yes/no so you can let me know if you're opting out of winning a prize. (If you want to visit people who participated, you can do so via the sign-up/starting line linky. I will have a link to it on the wrap-up post).
Regarding the readathon prizes, I have some wonderful book donations from some awesome authors, and I am offering a charity donation, as usual (see below). I will have the prize page posted in a few days.

I will make a $15 donation to the winner's choice of a human rights organization, such as the ACLU, Boys and Girls Club, Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, Amnesty International, It Gets Better, Planned Parenthood, or another human rights organization of your choice (food banks, homeless shelters would also apply), perhaps your local chapter or a local organization. This giveaway is open internationally. Note: I will not donate to any organization that does not believe that all are equal, regardless of gender, race or sexual orientation.


Don't forget, you can sign up for the Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge, which runs all season long. Just visit my Christmas blog, Christmas Spirit for all the info. Would love to have you!

#FrightFall #Readathon - Wrap-up #SomethingWickedFall


FrightFall has come to an end once again. I hope everyone enjoyed it, and our event Something Wicked Fall at Castle Macabre. We had a couple of great movie watch-alongs, and the Doctor Sleep read-along. Tons of scary! Thank you all so much for joining in on another readathon!

Remember, our process has changed for wrap-ups. No more linky for wrap-up posts. Fill out the form at the end of this post and indicate if you want a chance at a prize by selecting yes or no. Also, 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 have until Friday, November 8 at 11:59 pm CDT to fill out the form. I will email the winners within a few days following the deadline so keep a look out in your email inbox (or spam folder, just in case) for an email from my truebookaddict gmail account. (Prize page is here)

The Christmas Spirit Readathon is coming up this month, November 25 through December 8. The readathon also kicks off the season long Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge I host every year at Christmas Spirit. I hope you will join us! Stay tuned for details and sign-up.

Once again, thank you for joining me and I hope to see you next time.

(If you would like others to visit your wrap-up post, please leave a comment below with the link to your wrap-up, or you can visit participants via the starting line post linky here.)
