BOO! Did we scare you? Probably not, but we're hoping that the books you'll read this week will scare you more than we will ever be able to.



Come one come all, and sign up for our week of spooky reads! Our next readathon is horror themed! We will be hosting our readathon from the 24th of October through to the end of the 31st. We will all be entering the readathon together, so you can keep track of the starting time through this Countdown Watch.

Don't worry, you don't have to read JUST scary books, and we aren't very picky! But you should keep in mind that for every book read during the readathon that is shelved under horror on the main page is worth two extra points!

Sooooo, are you joining? If you are planning on joining us MODs, let us know down below! Then head over to the Reading List thread to start tracking what books you plan on reading, and what spooky challenges you want to give a try.

So, from us MODs, please sign up (we would hate to enter into the spooky carnival by ourselves).

No! You should absolutely read whatever you want!!

For scoring, if you read horror, you get 2 additional points per book

Your reading list is totally up to you!! Yay!! I hope you love your fantasy and mystery books!

You don't have to even read a single horror book. It's just that you get extra points if you do read one.

Sure! Whatever you like! :) Just remember that if you want to claim points you'll have to do it in the point thread.
