Neil Gaiman, a yarn spinner of great renown (and one of my favorites, I might add), has devised a magnificent new tradition ~ All Hallow’s Read! He describes it as, “It’s All Hallows Read, a tradition we just made up. You can fancy it up as much as you like. Just make sure you give someone a scary book this Hallowe’en…” That about sums it up. Here are the gory details: http://www.allhallowsread.com/. You can also follow all the twists and turns at #AllHallowsRead on Twitter.
I love it. What a brilliant way to foster a love of reading! What will you give and to whom? Poe, Bradbury, Lovecraft, Gaiman? The possibilities are endless and I am grateful for that.
I encourage you, Gentle Reader, to enjoy All Hallow’s Read! I know we will be here at Rancho del Evil Chicken.
