It’s a little earlier this year but this is the one reading challenge I look forward to all year long. Why? Because it’s fun and totally doable! Carl of Stainless Steel Droppings has thought this one through. There is a participation level for everyone so there is absolutely no reason not to join in on the fun. It’s called R.I.P. VIII which stands for Readers Imbibing in Peril. How cool is that?
Full details can be found on the blog, but this is the gist of it. You read books or watch movies from any of these genres:
- Dark Fantasy
Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.
The challenge begins on September 1, 2013 and runs through October 31, 2013.
- Have fun reading (and watching).
- Share that fun with others.
I plan to participate on two levels. Read the captions for descriptions:
I don’t know exactly what I will read, but I am guessing the new King book will be one of them and possibly Setterfield’s new one. I could easily read more as this is my favorite time of the year and I love this challenge, but I also want to be realistic. I do believe I can succeed with what I’ve committed to here.

Doesn’t it sound like fun? Do you want to join? If so, head to Carl’s blog for details! I cannot wait! All I need is a creaky floor, some wind in the trees and the sound of a coyote howling in the background…
