What do you plan to read for the October Horror-themed ReadaThing? Got ideas, got your books planned out, or are you just going to wing it? Tell us here!
I think I'll also try some classic horror - Frankenstein and Dracula. I think I've read Frankenstein at least once, long long ago; I know I've never read Dracula (which means I only know about 75% of the story...).
After that - if I manage to finish all of those - who knows?
I was wondering if there was anyone who might be willing to lend me a hand - I'm going to be without my laptop for a good portion of next week and managing my internet access through my phone with its very small screen and dodgy keys for inputting. I feel somewhat reluctant to attempt to access the wiki to input my reading times and was wondering if there was someone who might be willing to enter my times as/when they are inputting their own if I were to pm them when I can?
My name is John Cobb. I haven’t participated in a ReadaThing before. Sounds like fun. What’s the procedure to login at my scheduled time and begin reading? Also, what’s the protocol if more than one person signs up for the same timeslot?
By the way, I plan to read from my most recent book, Tales of the Cemetery Trees, a collection of short stories, including crime, fantasy, mystery, and the supernatural. Given the Halloween theme for the October ReadaThing, I have a few ghost stories that should be suitable.
Please pardon me. I’m not too swift sometimes…
I’ll find a new book to read that fits the theme.
Correct. This is NOT online reading aloud . . . (and you're not the first to confuse us with librivox.org . . . but do check them out if reading aloud is your thing). RaTs are just a bunch of people, around the world, reading in a relay-race style, and discussing what they read.
see the wiki for more info:
Absolutely LOVE your handle Guy.
Regarding your read: Is the story graphically depicted or could someone who enjoys suspense, mysteries, etc like it as well? Don't do well with the blood & gore.
