WELCOME TO ETHEREAL!
I have run it since 2014 and am happy you found it. It is the perfect name for the only group to cover all metaphysical, spiritual, and magical ground! If your passion is real spiritual, healing, or psychic disciplines…. whether you are a paranormal or fantasy fiction fan…. or if you love books about religious or folk traditions, mythology, legends, or science fiction that is out of this world: this group is for you.
I created ETHEREAL, after encountering group after group focused on vampire fare, when I am most passionate about spirits. I am excited about a whole host of extra-sensory subjects that fit nowhere. Thus, I created a place that covers the whole gamut; even children’s books with animal and inanimate protagonists.

(1) Joining, via the button below and advertizing us, is the sole qualifier. Please make a page or post linking to this home base. Tracking your challenges in one place is fine, if we are promoted in some way. If you do not have a blog, please provide a public URL (not facebook). A Goodreads shelf would do. I am an active member, with an optional companion group.
(2) Participation is as relaxed or active as you like. Revisit the accompanying review page to share the books you read. I do not decree a quantity. Let’s see how it turns out! If you write reviews: use the alphabetized buttons. If you do not review: save a bit of a list and type those titles, or your URL, into the comment box. You need not pop in a book at a time, unless your pace is a modest quantity per year.
(3) Watch for activities and conversations at my blog and contribute whenever the mood strikes. The more members we have, the more I can offer fun games and festivities! However, if all you do is work away in our review buttons or comment box, that is all right.
Sometime in the year, before December: please tell me if you would like to be in my year-end prize draw. Since membership is the only criteria for eligibility, I like to draw and mail the treats the first week of December, to avoid raised postage rates each new year. This and any questions that occur to you, may be by comment or e-mail: RIEDELFascination(at)Gmail(dot)com.
(4) No matter when you join, count all relevant books from January to December 2019.
We run from FEBRUARY 1, 2019 to JANUARY 31, 2020!
We like seeing how many books we finish right up to December 31. We don’t have time to review and update websites on New Year’s Eve; nor do we want to rush at Christmas. It makes far better sense to catch-up in January, when we have breathing room. I keep my review buttons open a few months.

~ JOIN! ~
I hope the many people who read a vast spectrum of ETHEREAL literature, join me this 2019 and tell others about us!
It is my pleasure to visit everyone’s participation. I can’t get through standard Blogspot comment boxes, if you use a captcha. Commenting at my blog is best, if you don’t use WordPress. You can count on me to reply.
* The headquarters page will be made soon.
