October Horror-Themed ReadaThing Starts Today

It’s not too late to join in our Halloween week ReadaThing! All are welcome, and you don’t have to read for the entire week: the goal is to have a few people from around the world reading at any given time during the ReadaThing. As with all ReadaThings, you’re welcome to read whatever you like, though we’re aiming for a seasonal horror theme this time around.

This edition of ReadaThing will be kicking off at 12am (midnight) UTC on Saturday, October 25th (that’s 8pm Eastern, Friday October 24th), and will end at the same time on the following Saturday—12am UTC, November 1st (8pm Eastern, Friday, October 31st). You can see the full timeline here.

Sign up

Head directly to the October 2014 ReadaThing Wiki to sign up, or check out the announcement thread for more general information. You don’t have to pick a time slot in advance in order to participate! There’s a special place for readers who don’t want to commit to a specific schedule to sign up.

What are you reading?

Whether you’d like to check out what your fellow ReadaThing-ers are reading, or to share your own ReadaThing picks, head over to the What will you be reading? thread to see what books are slated. Remember: anything goes! You can read whatever you want, wherever you want.

Get ready to read

Once the ReadaThing is underway, keep an eye out for the “October 2014 ReadaThing: Log Book” thread, where you can document your ReadaThing experiences. Take a peek at the Log Book thread from our last ReadaThing in August/September, for examples.

ETA: The October 2014 ReadaThing Log Book can be found here!
