Stainless Steel Droppings has the schedule up! Hooray! This is a fun reading event featuring one of my favorite books. If you want to play along, it is not too late – head over to Stainless Steel Droppings to sign up. This read along is part of the larger event R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril in which readers can pick a variety of levels to challenge one’s self – and I am surprised how much of my reading material fits into the parameters of this reading event! Who knew I read so much dark fantasy, crime, mystery, etc. With this read along, there are two additional mini-events that you can read about at the end of Stainless Steel Droppings’ post.
This will be a re-read for me, having read The Graveyard Book a few years ago. I contemplated doing the audio version (read by Neil Gaiman himself), but I find it difficult to stop at the correct place – I have a tendency to press on and with this book I could see myself finishing it easily in a few sittings (it’s that entertaining). So I will be reading along in my trusty paperbook, bookmark in hand.
