R.I.P. IX is, here's some information:
R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril, or R.I.P. for short, is a participatory event created by Carl of Stainless Steel Droppings, wherein we the people spend however little, or much, time we want over the months of September and October imbibing all things ghastly and ghostly.
The purpose of R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril IX is to enjoy books and movies/television that could be classified (by you) as:
Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.
There are two simple goals for R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril IX
1. Have fun reading.
2. Share that fun with others.
There are multiple levels of participation (Perils) that allow you to be a part of R.I.P. IX 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 many other commitments) but want to participate all the same. And there is a group read, too - (September 1st thru October 1st) a read-a-long of The Haunting of Hill House. For details on the various Perils check out Carl's site. And, just so you know, there is a review site where you can add a link to your R.I.P. IX posts and check out what everyone else is reading or watching!
So, there you have it folks, all the pertinent details regarding one of the blogosphere's funnest reading experiences - R.I.P. IX. Pick out your books or movies and have fun! I know I'm excited to dive right in. And now, I'm off to finish reading The Story Hour by Thrity Umrigar, so that I can start reading something spooky sooner rather than later. Happy reading!!
