R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril IX

The challenge is being hosted by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings.

Here are the details copied from Carl's blog:
R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril IX

September 1st is right around the corner. It is time to begin.




Dark Fantasy.




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 I’ve honed this event down to two simple rules:

1. Have fun reading (and watching).
2. Share that fun with others.

As I do each and every year, there are multiple levels of participation (Perils) that allow you to be a part of R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril without adding the burden of another commitment to your already busy lives. There is even a one book only option for those who feel that this sort of reading is not their cup of tea (or who have too many other commitments) but want to participate all the same.

R.I.P. IX officially runs from September 1st through October 31st. But lets go ahead and break the rules. Lets start today!!!

Multiple perils await you. You can participate in just one, or participate in them all.
These are the perils that I am planning to participate in:

Read two books of any length that you believe fit within the R.I.P. categories.
  1. The Farm by Emily McKay (The Farm, Book #1) 
  2. The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson 

This Peril was added a few years back and brought a really fun, interactive dimension to R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril. For the third year in a row bloggers Andi and Heather of The Estella Society are hosting a readalong in conjunction with R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril. This year’s readalong runs from September 1st through October 1st, and the chosen book is Shirley Jackson’s classic, The Haunting of Hill House. This is a very laid back event, with questions posted to Twitter (and I’ll put them up here) on October 1st. As this isn’t a large book you do have plenty of time to get a copy from your local library or bookstore and join in.
And they have created a great banner (click on it to sign up):
    For those of you who do have a blog and want to review your readings and viewings for R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril IX, there is a book review site located here.
