Over the years I’ve seen calls for the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril challenge and I finally decided to participate. The logo by Abigail Larson is pretty awesome, isn’t it?
This challenge or event runs from September 1st through October 31st so it’s a short commitment and I plan on a setting a small goal since I’m starting late. It’s not limited to books. You can read short stories or watch movies that fit the theme. This year it’s hosted by The Estella Society and the gist of it is this:
Without further ado, pick your poison, won’t you? September 1st is here, and we’re ready to begin!
Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.
That is what embodies the stories, written and visual, that we celebrate with the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril event.
As time has wound on, we’ve discovered that simple rules are best:
1. Have fun reading (and watching).
2. Share that fun with others.
The books I’m contemplating reading include:
- On the Night of the Seventh Moon by Victoria Holt
- We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
- The Apothecary by Maile Malloy
- The Scarab Heart by Michael Gallagher
- The Church of Dead Girls by Stephen Dobyns
As I mentioned, I’m going to go for a small goal. Peril the Second: Read two books of any length that you believe fit within the R.I.P. categories.
