SEPTEMBER 2018 EVENTS
Created by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings, R.I.P. – R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril (now in its thirteenth year!) has moved to a new home, hosted by Heather from My Capricious Life. The event takes place from September 1st, 2018 through October 31st, 2018. As always, the idea of R.I.P. is to read books from one or more of the following categories, during the months of September and October:
Mystery // Suspense // Thriller // Gothic // Horror // Dark Fantasy // Supernatural
– or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above. There are multiple levels of participation (Perils) that allow you to be a part of R.I.P. XIII without adding the burden of another commitment to your already busy lives.
The Persephone Readathon Round 2 will take place from Friday, September 21st through Sunday, September 30th. This will be a laid back readathon; read as much or as little as you’d like. The goal is simply to enjoy reading and discussing all things Persephone Books. Make sure to follow along and share on social media using #PersephoneReadathon throughout the event.
The readathon will be hosted by Dwell in Possibility.
