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, Friday, September 8th at 11:59 pm EDT to complete their wrap-ups).

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).

I will have the kick off post live that day at the Castle Macabre blog, with all the info, and the reading schedule for our read-along of Stephen Kng's If It Bleeds. The FrightFall Readathon, hosted here, starts on October 1st. Sign up for that event will be posted before mid-September.

2023 High Summer Readathon - Now we start!

The heat is ON this year in parts of the U.S. Has me so thankful that I moved back to Michigan three years ago. Hopefully, this month of reading can be time to stay inside and read, luxuriating in the air conditioning. lol

If you have any questions about how things work, check out the guidelines in the sidebar menu or the sign up post, or you can always leave me a comment (or send me a message via the contact form). 

I will post a mid-event check-in post at the halfway point. Our hashtag for the readathon across social media is #HSreadathon The second prize I'm offering will be announced on the mid-event check-in. More on the charity prize below.

Stop by our  Facebook group and our Facebook Page, and our Goodreads group and Instagram. We are also on Discord. Introduce yourself in the #general channel, and look for the readathon specific channel for the current readathon. Here is the invite link if you haven't already joined: 
(There are also access tabs in the sidebar menu.)

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.
Charity giveaway (Google form):

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

One quick other order of business. As you know (most of you), September kicks off my scary fall events...Something Wicked Fall, hosted at my horror blog, Castle Macabre (Sept/Oct) which includes the FrightFall Readathon here at Seasons of Reading (Oct). We are going to be doing a Stephen King Read-Along during the event through September and October. We are voting in our Goodreads group between Fairy Tale, Billy Summers, or If It Bleeds. If you're in the group, or want to join, stop by and place your vote. If you're not on Goodreads, you can drop your preference in the comments below and I'll add them to the poll. Here's the link to the Goodreads poll. Last day to vote is August 7th.

Happy Reading!!
