The author Neil Gaiman is a prominent backer of libraries and literacy, and he has a great idea for a new Halloween tradition. He thinks we should all give scary books as gifts on Halloween. He's calling it All Hallow's Read. As a fan of Gaiman's work, books in general, and scary things – I think this sounds like fun.
Gaiman mentioned it to his million online fans last year, and got a great response. So this year there's a website, a video and a lot of buzz. Give scary books for children, adults and even strangers. There are All Hallow's Read bookplates that you can download and print to put inside a book and drop it where someone will find it – a random act of scary kindness. I love to give books, so this is just one more great excuse to do that.
What do you think? Will you be giving books this year along with your candy?
