Äänestys: If a Halloween ReadaThing were to happen, I would either help make it happen, or just read during it to make it a success.
Äänestys: I would love to help out with the making and running of a ReadaThing in October.
I'd say start setting up now, and get the first stuff done this week. Then you have about two-three weeks off; about a week before the RaT begins post the "what will you be reading" thread, then post the Logbook as the RaT begins. And during that "time off", you (and all the rest of us) will be keeping an eye on the announcement and then the reading thread, for anyone who needs help with the wiki etc.
BTW, for the announcement thread (and the reading, and the logbook...) - just steal a recent one and fiddle with it a little. That's what we've done the last few times. There's a lot of points that need to be covered, using a boilerplate makes it much easier to make sure they get in.
Äänestys: I like the October ReadaThing being held from the 25th until the 31st of October.
Just a reminder: there are step-by-step instructions on everything you need to do at
One of those things is to let Loranne know by mid-month so she can put something in the SOTT . . . but it looks like she's already on board :)
There's also a template for the Wiki page at
I'm not a fan of horror, but I do usually read some Poe on Halloween so I'll at least join in a bit on that day.
Life's sneaky that way - it's when you have a lot planned that a lot gets dumped on you. I've had that, too...
Thank you so much for helping out. I didn't realize that I had bitten off way more than I could chew when I decided to do the majority of this by myself. I'm thinking next time I try, start much sooner, and get lots of help. Those two things would definitely fix a lot of the problems I had this time. If I start another month or so earlier than I did with this one, even if life kicks my butt around the block near the start, most of it would already have been finished.
And because I don't do horror, I've toned down the theme - suggested ways to make it milder, or that readers can skip it entirely if they like. But those who want to can do pure horror, of course!
If anyone who's more of a 'horror' expert could advise me further, I'm more than willing to listen - as mentioned above I'm purely relying on adding the horror tag to my collection by what comes up when I look at the suggested by LT tags which I presume is the tags most used by other people.
I shall report back on my thoughts when I listen...
I enjoyed The Small Hand too,
