At this very moment bookworms all over the world are putting the finishing touches on their TBR lists for the annual October Spook-a-thon!
Also known as “Book-a-thon” –a fictitious term that has entered the general lexicon as a point of reference for reading marathons– the Spook-a-thon is generally intended as the “Halloween themed version” of it.
This reading event, which aims to encourage love of reading in both kids and adults, is now organized by schools, libraries, book clubs and pretty much everywhere on social networks and dedicated websites such as blogs.
Starting tomorrow -October 1st- The Serial Readers Book Club on Goodreads will be hosting the first edition of:
