GalleyCat an article about All Hallow's Read and wanted to share. Founded in 2010 by Neil Gaiman, it encourages participants to give someone they love a scary book. I think this is a lovely idea. I like the idea of a literary holiday.
I feel bad that I haven't been reading much lately. I've been struggling to finish Bones of the Moon by Jonathan Carroll. Not because it's bad, it's actually quite good, but I just can't seem to bring myself to read.
I like the idea of devoting Halloween night to reading. I can give out the candy and read a good book.
This may come as a surprise but I'm not actually a big horror reader. I've read a good number of the classics, but I haven't read much modern horror, not even much King or Barker. Do you have any suggestions? I'd love to read them.
