RIP VII Sign up Post


RIP VII is hosted by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings. This is now in its seventh year. I have particpated before and enjoyed it. I am doing Peril the Third which is read one book in the following genres. I have not been reading as much this year so I don't want to overwhelm myself. For more information please visit his blog.

The purpose of R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VII is to enjoy books and movies/television that could be classified (by you) as:
Dark Fantasy.

Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.
I have removed the word “challenge” from this event because it has never really fit. “Challenge” was the lingo back when I first discovered book blogs thus its previous addition to the reading events I host. While I don’t have any personal grudge against folks challenging themselves to read a certain number of books, or books outside their comfort zone, this event is primarily about the great pleasure that can be found in embracing this type of fiction/non-fiction during this season of the year.

There are two simple goals for R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VII
1. Have fun reading.
2. Share that fun with others.

As I do each and every year, there are multiple levels of participation (Perils) that allow you to be a part of R.I.P. VII without adding the burden of another commitment to your already busy lives. There is even a one book only option for those who feel that this sort of reading is not their cup of tea (or who have many other commitments) but want to participate all the same.
R.I.P. VII officially runs from September 1st through October 31st. But lets go ahead and break the rules. Lets start today!!!
Multiple perils await you. You can participate in just one, or participate in them all.

I am choosing Peril the Third which is read one book but I will probably read more than that. :)

Thank you so much for joining in again this year. Look forward to seeing what you decide to read. Hard to believe it is almost autumn. The summer, dry and hot as it was here, actually went by faster than I suspected it would.
