The FrightFall Readathon technically ended Monday, but the post-readathon ended yesterday. The one main “rule” of FrightFall is that you must read at least ONE scary book (which can be a thriller, mystery, Gothic novel, or similar for those who are faint of heart). Here are all the scary, thriller …

In case you couldn’t tell from my last couple of posts, I’m already in the mood for Christmas reading, so of course I’m joining the Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge that starts Monday. It’s hosted by Michelle at Christmas Spirit.
From Christmas Spirit:
Challenge will run from Monday, November 20, 2017 through Saturday, January 6, 2018, Twelfth Night (or Epiphany for the Christians among us).
Cross over with other challenges is totally permitted AND encouraged!
These must be Christmas novels, books about Christmas lore, a book of Christmas short stories or poems, books about Christmas crafts, and for the first time…a children’s Christmas books level!
I’m signing up for the Christmas Tree level which is 5 or 6 books.
And, since it lines up so well, I’m also joining Michelle’s Christmas Spirit Readathon hosted at Seasons of Reading, which also starts Monday.
From Seasons of Reading:
Read-a-Thon dates: Monday, November 20 at 12:00am CDT until Sunday, December 3 at 11:59pm CDT (adjust your time zone accordingly…there’s a time zone converter in the blog menu)
You do not have to be signed up for the Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge to participate (but I sure would love for you to join us!)
I am not requiring that you read only Christmas/holiday books during the read-a-thon, but I hope you will pick up at least one holiday tale, even if it’s just to read some children’s books with your kids or some holiday short stories…and perhaps some scary fare…
To check in on social media, we’ll use hashtag #CSreadathon
As usual, you do not have to have a blog to participate…feel free to link up and check in from Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, etc. AND interact with us in our Facebook group.
