It’s that time of year again. Carl, over at Stainless Steel Droppings, has announced that R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril (R.I.P.) has officially started. For those of you unfamiliar with this event, you can read books or watch movies from the following categories:
Last year I joined this challenge, but I was in the middle of moving from Boston to London. I didn’t read as much as I wanted to. This year, I’ve been setting aside books and the pile has grown. The pile itself is terrifying, which seems fitting for the challenge. I’m hoping to read some books by Arthur Conan Dolye, Anne Rice, Stephen King, Agatha Christie, Dashiell Hammett, Neil Gaiman, and more if I can squeeze them in. I’m not promising that I’ll read all that I want to, but I’ll give it a go. Carl’s goal isn’t to force people to read books, but to encourage people to have fun. He’s one of the kindest hosts I’ve come across, so if you feel like getting into the spirit of things, hop on over to his blog and sign up. There are a couple of group reads as well, if you prefer safety in numbers. Happy reading folks and you may want to keep the lights on!
