I am ready for Fall! Mostly because it’s still in the 80s here and I’m over the heat. So even though it’s still too hot to cuddle under the blankie with a cup of cocoa and a scary book, I’m still going to join the R.I.P. fun. Because I need some bloggy interactions and it’s been eons (aka 5 years) since my last R.I.P.
What is R.I.P. you ask? It’s Carl’s famous reading challenge honoring Autumn! Click here to read all about it.
But! I’m only committing to 1 book. Because 1) I’m out of practice with reading challenges and 2) this is my book:
That picture is deceptive. Perhaps the poppets can help put things in perspective:
That’s Don Quixote on top. Granted it has smaller font and thinner paper, so it clocks in with more pages, but we’re still looking at well over 700 pages of potential bad dreams. No wonder the blue and red poppet looks a little worried.
So. Let’s re-cap. This is what I’m doing:
Peril the Third or, the One Book Only option.
I probably should have signed up for Peril the First (4 books), because the urban fantasy series I’m occasionally reading and the follow-up to I Hunt Killers that I checked out along with Insomnia also fit into the R.I.P. theme, but I didn’t want to set myself up for failure. So here’s hoping I over-achieve and end up reading more than I have planned.
And that I don’t spend the next 8 weeks cowering in the corner with my thumb in my mouth.
