RIP XII is on!

Andi of Estella’s Revenge and Heather of My Capricious Life have taken on the mantle from Carl of Stainless Steel Droppings who has done sterling work making Readers Imbibing Peril one of the most fun events in the reading year.  Thanks to all three of you for founding and continuing this great tradition.  And you, reader, join us!  From September 1st until (when else?) Hallowe’en we are encouraged to read or watch anything remotely spooky, creepy, mysterious, dark, gothic, suspenseful, terrifying, horrific, thrilling or any other similar works to get us all in the Fall mood (even if it’s Spring where you are).  Read 1 book, read 4.   Read a dozen if you like.   Watch movies, read short stories, share your opinions.   It’s all about having a little spooky fun whether that’s a nice cozy mystery full of cats and cupcakes or the most nightmare-inducing horror you can find.   Whatever you enjoy.  Sign up and review what you read.  Share the scare!


There will also be a group read of David Mitchell’s Slade House, which I can’t figure out from the descriptions I’ve read if I want to read this or not.   I’ve got some time to decide.  In fact, too much time, as I want to start my RIP reading now and really, that would be cheating.  Although it is a big world and it’s already 1 September in a lot of places…
