Spring into Horror Readathon.



It's that time of year again.  No, not Halloween.  No, not Women in Horror Month.  And, not quite time for the World Horror Convention.

However, it IS time for the  start Spring into Horror Read-a-Thon hosted by Michelle from Seasons of Reading.  Please check out her page for details and to sign up!

The only requirement is to read one scary book during the marathon.  That's it!  Just one!  I think this slow reader can handle that.  It also ties in perfectly for my Horror Reading Challenge.  (See button on sidebar.) Also, if out and out Horror is not your thing, you can participate by reading a paranormal, thriller or mystery title.  Those all have scary going on as well. 

I'm just finishing up Mister Slaughter right now by Robert McCammon.  While not strictly Horror, it does have elements of the genre. 

I will be tracking and updating my progress on this page so please check back.  I will also be hosting a contest for the Read-A-Thon.

I have a hard time with lists because I usually choose my books spontaneously.  However, I did just buy I Travel By Night by Robert McCammon, so I may start on that after Mister Slaughter.

Yes, Robert McCammom! Great choice! Glad to have you with me again for another RAT. Hope you enjoy the week.

I actually am doing your horror challenge and I'm going to have a lot of updates soon (I'm always behind on updating my challenges). I'm listening to The Stand right now in the car and I'm going to read The Exorcist this week. =O)

When's Women in Horror month??? *sigh* I've been away from the horror genre for too long...

To: katenread...we do horror twice a year, at least. Two horror read-a-thons every year...one in October and one in April. You should join us!
