I couldn‘t remember if memes/joke posts counted for points for #Scarathlon2022 other than for participation like they do for #WinterGames but I came across this and thought it was fun 👻 Here‘s mine:

When I‘m a ghost I will have to call the lord and I don‘t think they will be able to do anything for me but I‘m sure they will be fine with it 💀


lele1432 Oh that‘s perfect 🤣🤣🤣 1d
slategreyskies When I‘m a ghost, I will always be there for you to be safe and I love you. I actually kinda like that. :) 23h

Starting this ARC which looks as though it could be a perfect choice for #WinterGames. @Clwojick

Loved the last few books I‘ve read by this author.

Clwojick Such a cozy cover! 1w
Emilymdxn I‘m in love already, nothing like a cozy Christmas book 1w

#WeeklyForecast - one week until October's books get added and look - there is actually a TINY BIT OF SPARE SPACE on the Windowsill of Optimism!!! This past week has been absolute madness and this week shows no real signs of that letting up, so I am wedging in reading wherever I can, but there has definitely been a big drop-off on my social media/book review action! Only so much bandwidth in my brain 😂


janeycanuck I really love the nickname Windowsill of Optimism. I may have to “leverage“ it for myself. 1w
TheAromaofBooks @janeycanuck - Thank you!! It's REALLY helped me this year to have my immediate TBR/challenge books all in one place, very visible. Of course I'm always hopelessly behind, which is where the optimism part comes in 😂 1w
julieclair I really need to set up my own equivalent of your Window of Optimism. Right now, I have little stacks of the current month‘s books all over the house, which leaves me feeling kind of scatterbrained. 🤪 3d

TheAromaofBooks @julieclair - This year I have put them all in one place, and then I also have each of these books in my jar and draw from it at random to see which of these comes next. So it's a mix of “assignments“ and randomness, with a splash of mood reading if I feel like it since I seem to always have several genres going on here at once 😂 I'm reading from this for October, then clearing the decks - November is going to be focused on completing series ⬇ 3d
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) since I seem to be embroiled in WAY TOO MANY and then December will be fluffy Christmas/holiday romances for #WinterGames - I'll never actually finish my TBR, but it has been fun to feel like I'm making some progress on it!! 3d
julieclair I‘ll never actually finish my TBR either…. and I think I actually like it that way. I like the idea of a random draw for the books without fixed “read by” dates, such as my IRL book clubs. Thanks for the inspiration! 😀 3d

Since everyone loved the word search game during last years #WinterGames, so we knew we had to introduce it to our #Scarathlon event too!

As you‘re reading throughout the month, keep track of how many times you come across the above words, and give yourself 10 pts per word found! Woohoo! Let‘s go team! Only 9 days to go! 🦇🖤

Emilymdxn Amazing I love the word search game! 2w
Yuki_Onna This word search starts on October 1st, right? And it lasts the whole October? 2w
5feet.of.fury I loved this for Winter Games! So excited! 2w
Clwojick @Yuki_Onna You‘ve got it! The whole length of the event. 2w
Yuki_Onna Great! This is going to be so much fun! Thanks! 🎃 2w
BarkingMadRun Woohoo!! I‘m making my stack now, it should have a LOT of these words in it! 2w
julieclair How fun! Do word variations count? Ex: guilty, killing, bodies 👻 2w
Allylu @Clwojick No pressure, but are you compiling a Google Doc for the Bingo boards? How do you get all this stuff done? You are amazing! I appreciate you and @StayCurious so much. 2w
GHABI4ROSES You guys, this seriously just looks like one of my work files, but I will only give myself credit in the fiction reads. And I am reading a complete non-scary book to keep my nose out of the Team Reads! @DieAReader @Andrew65 @Clwojick @Lesanne I hope this does not look like any of your files. 2w
Andrew65 @GHABI4ROSES 😂😂😂
Andrew65 Love the word search aspect. 2w
Yuki_Onna @Clwojick Two questions:
1. Do the words also count if I find them in German? As I'll hopefully read some quick mysteries in my native tongue, too - does it count if I find the words Geheimnis = secret; Tod = death etc. as well?
Yuki_Onna @Clwojick 2. As for the TV aspect: Do episodes of mystery series or true crime documentary series count as separate? I.e. does each episode of, let's say, Columbo or Medical Detectives watched each give #TeamSlaughter 5 points? Or do 'only' proper movies count? 3d

Clwojick @Yuki_Onna You can absolutely use the words in your native language! And yes each tv episode/ podcast or movie counts for 5pts. 3d
Yuki_Onna @Clwojick Ooohh, how fun! Awesome!🎃 3d
britgetslit Is it the word exactly or can Killed be used for Kill? 2d
Clwojick @britgetslit it‘s fine to use kill, killed, kills, killer etc 23h

There are always a ton of fun readathons and reading events hosted in October, so I‘ve started a GoogleDoc that everyone can add to as they come across more events. The link will be shared with all participants, so there should be a good mix of styles, platforms, & genres,though from what I can see so far, Bingos are popular again! 🖤🦇

mdm139 Thanks for sharing about #witchathon 2w
Lizpixie Thanks lovely! 2w
Emilymdxn Stabby bingo is an amazing title! 2w
TheAromaofBooks Do you have a way to access the bingo cards that are from off-Litsy challenges? I probably won't do the actual challenges because I don't do much bookish stuff on IG, but am always looking for fun bingo cards 😂 2w
TheBookHippie Headed home from all my concerts but my #SUNDAYBUDDYREAD is witchy 🧙🏼‍♀️for October anyone is welcome to join schedule is posted. 2w
Allylu Are any Littens doing Readathons without prompts like #SpookOweenReadathon last year? (edited) 2w
Clwojick @TheAromaofBooks I could edit the shared file from last year, and add to it, as we come across more. 2w
TheAromaofBooks If you have time, that would be amazing!! But I also know you have a lot going on, so it's not, you know, an emergency 😂 2w
Texreader Has anyone posted a point tracker yet? 2w
Clwojick Not that I know of! Im a paper tracker for my personal points, and then I use an excel sheet for tracking the teams totals. But I‘m trying to remember who made them for us in the previous years! @Texreader 2w
TheBookHippie @Clwojick I thought I had one too 😂🤪 I can‘t remember either. 2w
TheAromaofBooks I've modified a #WinterGames point tracker that I think may have originally been created by @kimmypete1 but I can't remember for sure! @Texreader @TheBookHippie 7d

Since The Wyrmling doesn‘t give me a lot of time to read, I‘m on the lookout for as many readathons and challenges in October to be able to stack #Scarathlon2022 points. 😅

@TheAromaofBooks is hosting a #PromptMaze challenge for any participants also looking for ways to accumulate points. I‘ll admit it took me a minute to figure it out, but now that I have, I‘m looking forward to this rather unique reading challenge.


TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! And if you enjoy it, I've actually been doing them quarterly, so there are four more you can play with 😂 I definitely have plans to do one for #WinterGames and since I read a lot more fluffy holiday/Christmas romance reads than I do scary stuff, it will probably be longer than the Scarathlon one haha

MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @TheAromaofBooks Thanks for the link! I really like the idea so I‘ll most likely join in on the one for #WinterGames as well! ❤️ 2w

Hey there #PromptMaze friends!! Hopefully you aren't as lost as I am! 😂

I'm working on the Q4 Maze and will hopefully have that ready in the next few days!! I am also thinking that there will be a bonus Christmas/holiday maze that will match up with all the #WinterGames reads that I have planned, which also kind of got me thinking about a bonus maze for #Scarathlon - they probably won't be as long as the quarterly ones, but still!!

Let me ⬇

AllDebooks I love these, I'm defo in for more. I'm on my last book for Q1, still playing catchup! 2mo
claudiuo Love them! Still making my way thru Q3 but always up for more. 2mo

PuddleJumper I'd be interested in doing any bonus ones 2mo
Mollyanna I love the idea of a holiday maze. Woohoo! I am slowly working my way through Q1 and am taking them one at time. I hope to be on to Q2 shortly. Thanks for putting these together. They are so fun. 2mo
claudiuo @TheAromaofBooks forgot to mention that I got a bit stuck on A5 in Q3 since I've not read anything in a series lately but my next read will fix that 😁 2mo
Read4life I‘m in for more! I‘m still working through Q3. Loving it. 2mo
julieclair I love the idea of holiday mazes. 👻🎄I‘m in! Still working my way through Q2 and Q3, and having lots of fun! 2mo
Addison_Reads I haven't finished any mazes yet, but I'm still having fun with them. I will try any new ones you want to make. 2mo
