“I propose that, on Hallowe’en or during the week of Hallowe’en, we give each other scary books. Give children scary books they’ll like and can handle. Give adults scary books they’ll enjoy.” — Neil Gaiman, in this blog post.
All Hallow’s Read is simple. Just find your favourite scary story, new or used, and leave it in a location where you think people will find it (and enjoy it), or share it with a friend.
Here's a video of Neil Gaiman explaining the idea
Since I am at work and this is last minute - my options were a little limited. So I checked out the Humber College North Campus Bookstore and picked up a copy of Many Bloody Returns
And left it in our Tim Horton's Restaurant at the North Campus (Totally stole the idea from Shannon Parsons) -- looked back 5 minutes later and it was GONE! Hopefully it has found a happy home.
When I get home tonight going to grab one of my Stephen King's and drop it off in Bolton, so someone there can benefit from this fabulous campaign
Go Forth and Share Everyone
