Fall is on its way and it’s almost time for #FrightFall read-a-thon hosted by Michelle @truebookaddict September 29-October 5!
Read the guidelines and sign-up so you can share your spooky reads (blog not required). There are always great bookish prizes too!

The Fright-Fall Read-A-Thon starts tomorrow but you can sign up and join any time this week. I am reading mystery not just horror (a little bit of a coward, but I like ghost stories:)
Right now, my plans are:
 The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (actually a re-read for another book group too, but a great mystery)
Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King (short stories collection b/c I haven’t read King in years)
possibly Horns by Joe Hill or Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

What not to do during Banned Books Week: ban seven books. After a tense board-meeting, a high school in Highland Park, Texas, has demanded its students to stop reading The Art of Racing in the Rain; The Working Poor: Invisible in America; Siddhartha; The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian; An Abundance of Katherines; The Glass Castle: A Memoir; and Song of Solomon. “Parents and grandparents brought books flagged with sticky notes. They read excerpts of sex scenes, references to homosexuality, a description of a girl’s abduction, and a passage that criticized capitalism.” (Most of which you can find in a given issue of The Paris Review—lock up your daughters.)
