Neil Gaiman Says…

…we should give books on Halloween.  See here:

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.

My dad used to give us books for Valentine’s Day.  That’s how I got my copy of T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats.

My kids read scarier books than I do.  I suppose, though, that their literary tastes could be broadened to the less-scary.  One can never have enough Poe.  Hmmmmm.  Book shopping…
