All Hallow’s Read

Something to keep an eye on and keep in mind for 2011. The concept of All Hallows Read came from the brilliant brain of Neil Gaiman.

According to the FAQ on the site, All Hallows Read is a (new) Hallowe’en tradition. It’s simply that in the week of Hallowe’en, or on the night itself, you give someone a scary book.

The genesis of this tradition is detailed in a fantastically titled blog-post on Mr Gaiman’s blog:

A Modest Proposal (that doesn’t actually involve eating anyone)

Read it, bookmark the site, think about it and give it a few months. We have until 31st October 2011 – ideally a bit before as planning is important (remember the seven Ps).
