The Scary Good Mini-Challenge

Scary Good

Welcome to the April 2016 Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon! This is the SCARY GOOD challenge, and it’s pretty simple. While we may not all be into horror, perhaps we pick up a book that sends a shiver up our spines even if we aren’t really expecting it. Or perhaps the book makes us think about a “confronting” topic. That’s scary enough for us.

The Task:

Tell us about a book you’ve loved that has scared you in some regard. Leave a comment below OR link up a social media post via the linky widget. Don’t forget to leave contact information if you’re not easily reached!

The Prize: 

A book from worth $15 or less. This is giveaway is open to international participants.

The winner will be announced and contacted once the event wraps up!

BBAW Day 5 : Blogger Burnout

Day OneIntroduce yourself (17)

Day 5 One of the unfortunate side effects of reading and blogging like rockstars seems to be a tendency toward burnout. How do you keep things fresh on your blog and in your reading?

It’s a sad truth, and while we don’t want to linger on it, you may have noticed some of your blogging buddies drop off after a while. We want to foster a sense of community and realistic expectations…longevity! How do you stay sane, grounded, and generally happy in your blogging?

Speaking of sane and happy, this week has been AMAZING! Thank you to all of you who have participated by blogging, Tweeting, Instagramming, interviewing, and sharing love with your fellow bloggers, and generally just being awesome.

THIS IS A BIG GROUP HUG! We can’t wait to do it all again next spring. Feel free to send us your ideas and suggestions to
