Frightfall Read-a-thon Wrap Up



Here is my Wrap Up post for the Frightfall Read-a-thon. I only picked two books as that seemed like a realistic goal, with work and everything, and I did pretty good. I finished up Blackbird early in the week and then hit a lull as the week went on, and went into the weekend needing to finish And Then There Were None. I'm happy to report that I just squeaked through

Here in Michigan it's been a cold and blustery weekend, with high winds starting Friday night and rain on and off all weekend. A very frightful start to October, let me tell you. Seems very appropriate given the title of our readathon, and a good weekend to be reading a classic mystery. I had a lot of fun with this one and hope you did too. A big thanks and shout- out to Michelle at seasons of Reading for hosting this readathon, and looking forward to doing it again down the road.

Happy reading!

    1. I was pretty happy with the way it worked out, got to read some good nooks. There's some other holiday readathons coming up so if all goes well I may try some of those.

  3. It is fantastic that you finished your goal. Rain and blustery winds does seem like an appropriate way to start this readathon. We have not hit that point in Wisconsin yet but I'm sure it is just around the corner.

    By the way, I enjoyed reading your review of Blackbird I'll have to keep it in mind.

    1. Thank you Whitney. I hope you like Blackbird if you read it.

      The weather was a good accompaniment to that readathon, no doubt! :)

  4. Glad you hit your goal, Greg! Hope you enjoyed it. Next one coming up is my Christmas read-a-thon the last week in November which kicks off my annual Christmas reading challenge (I LOVE Christmas...I have a year round Christmas blog and I host the reading challenge over there).

    Do you mind my asking what part of Michigan you're from? My hometown is Midland, Michigan and I was born in Dearborn (I've lived in Nashville for 23 years now). Small world! I'm always stumbling on fellow Michigan-ders. ;)

    1. Thank you Michelle. Good job on the radathon as always! That Christmas one sound good I may have to check it out! I love Christmas too.

      I'm from Saginaw, actually- just down the road from Midland! Small world for sure. I live in Grand Rapids now... how do you like Nashville?
