Well, #TeamWhoYaGonnaCall, I guess that's it for #Scarathlon 2023. :( I really hope you all had fun this year! I got to read a bunch of new and fun stuff, and I'm sure you all got to as well. Thanks so much for all your hard work! You folks are fantastic!

FlynnDewey @Melismatic That is absolutely kick-ass! Great job! 2mo
FlynnDewey @ChaoticMissAdventures No idea how you did that, but I'm at a loss for words lol. Phenomenal job! 2mo
ChaoticMissAdventures @FlynnDewey I really recommend reading anthologies - you get to count each short story as a read, and if you read a Halloween based one it is 50points. The anthology I read last week had 19 stories! So tons of points. I also seem to do really well on the weekly games, which helps. 2mo
StayCurious @ChaoticMissAdventures that‘s so amazing you‘re doing so well! I‘m going to find some anthologies for sure. Just a reminder though that Halloween stories are 25 points each, not 50. 🍁🎃 2mo
ChaoticMissAdventures @StayCurious sorry yes! Thank you! I had 2 Halloween in the anthology so I am mixing up my math 😂. Too many numbers running around!! 2mo

Playing this week's #Scarathlon game, and I keep finding myself grumbling, “My kingdom for a G and an I.“

How're you all faring #TeamWhoYaGonnaCall?

AmandaBlaze At around midnight, I saw the L in Scarathloners as an I. When I realized my mistake, I had a lot of crossing out to do. 2mo

#TeamWhoYaGonnaCall It's the first night of #Scarathlon, how are you choosing to play tonight? I'm starting my Evil Dead-athon, and playing Horror Movie Bingo! I feel The Evil Dead helped start a lot of the tropes that would come along in decades to come, so there's plenty of options on the cards!

Melismatic Definitely agree! Even tho it‘s camp, possession movies freak me out so I‘m more partial to the Evil Dead: The Musical off Broadway version 😅 hilarious and catchy 2mo

#TeamWhoYaGonnaCall Here is the first official game of #Scarathlon 2023! Share your list once complete in a post. (Remember, the team reads are Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill and Turn of The Screw by Henry James). You only have to post by the 8th, so take your time and work on it when titles come to you!

ChaoticMissAdventures So Joe Hill is Stephen Kings son. I sort of think that might mean these authors have something in common genetics of the author!? Too far? 😄 2mo

So, @StayCurious reminded me that I also need to participate in making certain posts for #scarathlon. Like the TBR/W. Well, better late than never, I say. I'm a *huge* Evil Dead fan. So this year will be my Evil Dead-athon. All the movies, some comics, and hopefully the series (if I can find it!!) Will also be reading some Clive Barker and of course the buddy reads. Let's have some spooky fun #TeamWhoYaGonnaCall!!

#TeamWhoYaGonnaCall One more sleep then the spooktacular fun begins! Keep track of your points (don't forget the word search, and don't forget to time how long you read!!!) Also, keep us all informed with your reading and watching. Each #scarathlon post you make nets you 1 point. Write a review, cross things off your TBR or Bucket List, ask for movie suggestions. But most importantly: Have some frightening fun!

ChaoticMissAdventures Team any tips for a person with terrible time management, and who will read like 2 pages while in line? I am wondering if finding the audio book time and using that is considered cheating? I normally read 3-4 books at a time and am terrible at sitting for stretches of time to read. Thanks! 2mo
Airykah13 @ChaoticMissAdventures I don‘t see anything wrong with using audiobook time. It‘s a good estimate. 2mo

FlynnDewey @ChaoticMissAdventures Not cheating at all! Whatever you need to do to record your time. I generally set a timer on my watch. If I remember lol. 2mo
bthegood @ChaoticMissAdventures keep count of time whatever way you need to and have fun -If I'm reading at different times throughout the day, in different places, than I guestimate based on total number of pages read that day 🙂 (edited) 2mo
ChaoticMissAdventures @Airykah13 @FlynnDewey @bthegood thanks so much! There are so many ways for points, and it is a bit overwhelming! Going to do our best! 2mo
FlynnDewey @ChaoticMissAdventures I totally get that feeling, trust me! I say, just focus on the areas you think will be more fun. Do more Readathons or focus more on the games. The points are nice, but the reading and the games are the best part for me. Don't stress about points. :D Just have fun! 2mo
Melismatic @FlynnDewey I‘m keeping tabs on my reading thru the Bookly app - I find that helpful. Do we get points for hours read it is that the readathon thing? 😅 2mo
FlynnDewey @Melismatic That's right! Readathons are a great way to build points, since you get them for time spent reading. And you can participate in more than one at a time! 2mo

This pretty much sums up my feelings on The Bourne films. The Bourne Identity was the first true "grown-up" book I ever read, and it was a blast. The second and third are pretty good as well, though I find the climax of Ultimatum isn't as explosive as I'd hoped for. But the movies? Nah, they can kick rocks.

Tomorrow's mission on my Quest for Points for #TeamHarkness in #Scarathlon2020. Fun fact: Sam Raimi's original title for The Evil Dead was The Book of the Dead. However, the producers convinced him to change it, arguing that the audience might be turned off by a "movie about reading".
