It was on Halloween in 1693 that Winifred, Sarah, and Mary Sanderson stole the spirit of
young Emily Binx. Taking their revenge, the town of Salem hanged the three witches.
Before the Sanderson sisters took their last breath, their magic book had cast a curse that
the sisters would return on All Hallow’s Eve on a full moon when a virgin lights the black flame candle…
It’s simple. Join a team. Fight for victory.
Survive the night.
For all the information, prompts and teams involved in the readathon check out the Twitter account @HPocusReadathon.

Each team has their own set of prompts so here is what I will be following for Team Trick or Treaters.

I just couldn’t pass up participating in this readathon when I saw it. I love that it is longer than a week and it seems like a fairly easy and laid back readathon. Are any of you going to be participating? If so what team will you be joining?
