I’m thinking of reading 31 spooky or weird tales for the month of October, and posting my thoughts, reactions, recommendations, etc. Does that sound interesting to anyone? Let me know you’re out there!
Are you ever gripped with "I have to buy a goddamn book right fucking now," after which you hold it, caress it, smell its pages, and place it lovingly on the pile where you admire it until the need for a new book grips you again?
If you don't get this its best we never speak again.
Gabriel Betteridge, “The Moonstone,” by Wilkie Collins, 1868.
