Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

Frightfall Read-a-Thon Sign-up!

Sep 29 - Oct 5

For more information and to sign up, click here

Twitter: #FrightFall

There are Rules ahem, Guidelines on the blog, just remember...the one main "rule" of FrightFall is that you must read ONE scary book (which can be a thriller, mystery, Gothic novel, or similar for those who are faint of heart).

(click the title please, my read more link still isn't working {head bang} 
if you know how to fix this, please let me know) 

More info: All times are central standard time (CST) so adjust your time accordingly. Each read-a-thon starts at midnight Monday and ends at 11:59pm on Sunday.

Participants have until 10:00pm CST on the Tuesday after the read-a-thon to post their wrap-up and be eligible for the giveaway.

Last, but not least, I leave you with our read-a-thon credo, a week of relaxed reading during which we can personally challenge ourselves and whittle away those ever looming TBR piles/shelves/libraries. So, no pressure...EVER! Enjoy! 

I'm still working on Gothic September and R.I.P reading challenges! I get to start two hours before midnight but have to finish two hours before midnight also and I always forget both.

My current list of books to pick from are:
  • Cover Your Eyes by Mary Burton
  • In Mint Condition - 2013 (short stories)
  • he House of Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne
  • The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson 
also the Dragonfire series has a good vs. evil vibe to it and can be scary in parts

Finish and review Cover Your Eyes . . . read more of In Mint Condition 2013 . . . read a library book (non-scary) . . . read a dragonfire book

Yay! So glad you're joining us again. Are you reading Seven Gables for my read-a-long at Castle Macabre? I'm SO behind. I need to get the midway check in posted today. Yikes!
