Read-a-Thon News and Mailbox Monday

Spring into Horror Read-a-Thon....
The voting has ended and as you can see above, you voters chose that title.  Pretty cute, I think! Now don't let the word 'horror' dissuade you from participating.  The only 'rule' in that regard will be to read at least one 'scary' book during the read-a-thon.  It does not have to be horror...it can be a thriller, a gothic tale, a mystery, paranormal...just something with a scary element (most mysteries have a murder, right?  That's scary).  I have not set the date in April yet, because strangely, Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon site has not mentioned when their date is (I can't even get the site to come up) and I don't want to interfere with their read-a-thon.  So keep April in mind and I'll be announcing the dates and sign-up details soon.  I will be hosting the read-a-thon here on this blog.  Hope you will join me!


Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia and is currently on tour. This month's host is Diary of an Eccentric. (want to read a book description? Clicking the book covers will take you to the book's page on Amazon)
