Though it started as a humble blog post back in 2010, the new tradition of “All Hallow’s Read“, that is, giving someone a scary book to read for Halloween, continues to grow. As author Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) explains in the zombie-mayhem-laden video below, this is not a substitute for candy. Candy is important (as is fake blood). But any reason we can take to send folks into libraries or bookstores, or even to their own bookshelves to pull out an old favorite seems to me a good cause to support.

Always enjoy your Friday posts, David. But this one is especially good. I do so hope All Hallow’s Read does become a part of Halloween celebrations starting now. I’ve shared it, let’s hope many others do, too.
