Frightfall Read-a-thon - 9/30/13-10/6/13

I took September off from 'A-thon-ing' to give myself a little break, but now it's time to get revved back up! There are 4 read-a-thons I'd like to do in October and the first is Frightfall hosted by Michelle over on Seasons of Reading.


The Vision
by Heather Graham

Pretty When She Dies
by Rhiannon Frater

by Bram Stoker

I'm pretty sure I have scary covered!  This is a pretty lofty goal for me, it will require about 100 pages a day of reading and a little over 2 hours a day of listening, but when you're listening to Tim Curry and Alan Cumming I bet 2 hours is a breeze! ;)


Monday - Day 1 : I decided to go ahead and finish up listening to The Fellowship of the Ring by J R R Tolkien today since I only had about 3 hours left.  Then I started in on Dracula and got about an hour in.  I think 4 hours of listening is a pretty respectable start!

Thursday - Day 4 : Work has not been cooperating with my reading, but I finally got to read at lunch today!  So far: 7:13 hours into Dracula, not quite halfway, 158 pages into The Vision, about a third done, and tonight I will start Pretty When She Dies since Fraterfest started today!

Wrap Up : I ended with about 2 hours left of Dracula, 100 pages of The Vision and at about 6% on Pretty When She Dies.  So I didn't finish anything, but I touched and almost finished all 3, plus finished up The Fellowship of the Ring. I'm going to count it a success, just because it kept me reading!

Thanks again to Michelle at Seasons of Reading for hosting!

    Thanks for the reminder. I'll go through my prioritized TBR list to see what "scary" books I have on hand. I may read-a-thon without a scary book and just not be eligible for a prize. I'll be checking on you.

    Tim Curry and Alan Cumming could read the phone book for two hours a day and it would be entertaining. And probably scary too. (I just realized that phone books are becoming scarce. We need a 21st century version of this phrase.)

  3. Alan Cumming and Tim Curry? Wow! I may have to get that and listen to it. I wouldn't mind a reread of Dracula anyway.
