A few weeks back, I signed up for the Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-Thon. As I read AAAAAAALLL the while around my writing anyway, I figured it wouldn’t rock my schedule too badly. But on top of that, I’d have a legitimate reason for THREE WHOLE DAYS of reading my a$$ off (thank goodness my Kindle has a huge supply of material), as well as earning the chance to learn about new books and interact with a load of others who are doing exactly the same as me.
So what’s it all about then, you ask?
From the blog of My Shelf Confessions:
Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-Thon
Welcome to the sign up! We’d love to have your participation, we’re going to be having several challenges throughout the read-a-thon. We also have many great prizes already lined up! There will be prizes for participation and for challenges on various blogs. There will be international prizes! We’ll also have a hashtag on Twitter: #WWReadathon.
This is a Halloween themed Read-a-Thon but we’re not going to restrict it to only Halloween/creepy books, so pick whatever you want to read! If you don’t know how a Read-A-Thon works, you just read as much as you can for that specific time! It’s basically an online reading party!
I shall be blogging, Tweeting, & FB’ing any books I manage to get through in the (very) short space of time. To kickstart my Read-a-Thon, I am heading into the abyss of fiction with: 1) Strange Neighbours 2) Succubus Blues 3) Unholy Ghosts 4) Nevermore 5) First Grave on the Right. All of them chosen by the good folk who visited my blog and helped me to pick.
Wish me luck! See you on the Other Side.
How about you? Did you sign up? If not, do you wish you had?
