FrightFall Readathon 2022 - Mid-Event Check-In

A day or so past mid-event. Saturday was my birthday and I was making quite merry over the weekend. 😁 

Congrats to the winner of the charity prize, Elyse. She chose World Central Kitchen for her donation. 


The second prize from me is a $5 Amazon e-gift card. 

Giveaway Details
This is a readathon participant only giveaway. To be eligible, you must have signed up, participated and added a link to the official readathon wrap-up post at the end of the readathon (I will give everyone until Friday, November 4th at 11:59 pm EST to complete their wrap-ups). We no longer use a linky for wrap-ups. The Google form link on our wrap-up post is where you will enter your info, your wrap-up link, and answer yes/no on whether you want to win a prize or not. I will choose the winner of the above prize by random selection using Winner will be chosen after the wrap-up post deadline (see above).

So, how is it going with the reading? Let me know your progress, or leave a link, in the comments.

I'm enjoying our Something Wicked Fall read-along of The Devil in Silver by Victor LaValle. I'll be posting Discussion Three soon (by Tuesday morning) over at Castle Macabre.

I'm also reading Stephen King's If It Bleeds. I finished the first novella in the collection, Mr. Harrigan's Phone, and will be watching the movie on Netflix.

Saturday is Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon (sign up here, if you haven't already) and I'm hoping to get a big chunk of my scary reading done during the event. Let me know if you'll be joining in as well. 

Hope you enjoy the rest of the readathon!

FrightFall Readathon - Time to get your scary on!

It's time! And once again, the readathon is part of Something Wicked Fall at Castle Macabre. We are doing a read-along of The Devil in Silver by Victor LaValle (we're not that far in, if you want to join us).

Remember, the one main "rule" of FrightFall is that you must read ONE scary book (which can be a thriller, mystery, Gothic novel, or similar for those who are faint of heart). The rest of the month? Keep reading scary if you want, or read whichever genre you choose.

I will be offering my usual couple of prizes (see below to enter the charity donation prize).

Don't forget that you can participate even if you don't have a blog. Just link up with your Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (and just post your updates from whichever venue you choose) AND don't forget our Facebook group, Facebook Page, our Goodreads group, and our Instagram...and our Discord. If you have any questions about updates, etc., feel free to ask. I will post a mid-event check in post mid-month so be sure to stop by and leave your progress, or a link, in the comments.

Hashtag across all social media is #FrightFall Feel free to also use #Readathon and #SomethingWickedFall

The linky below is the same one as the sign up linky. If you do a starting line/goal post, just add your link again, but be sure to put "goal post" beside your name, i.e. Michelle/True Book Addict (goal post). Note: If you're just signing up, you can do it here on this post. It's the same linky.

Win a $15 donation to a social justice charity of your choice!

I will make a $15 donation to the winner's choice of a social justice organization, such as the ACLU, Boys and Girls Club, Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, Amnesty International, It Gets Better, The Trevor Project, Planned Parenthood, Ukraine relief, or another social justice organization of your choice (food banks, homeless shelters, animal rights/rescue/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 all are equal, regardless of gender, race or sexual orientation.

(I will draw the winner at the end of the first week)

I apologize for some of the broken images on my site. I'm having an issue with my hosting. Hopefully, it will be fixed soon.
