I can tell Autumn’s finally coming! The #RIPX reading challenge has started. In years past, Carl V Anderson at Stainless Steel Droppings hosted the R.eaders I.mbibing Peril challenge. This year, The Estella Society is hosting. You can choose the challenge you want to do–reading books or short stories, watching movies or television, joining a group read. All the challenges are listed by a type of “peril.”
I’m planning to do a combination of perils. For Peril the First, I’ll be reading four novels. Right now, I’m thinking The Grey Mask, by Patricia Wentworth, In a Dry Season, by Peter Robinson, which I’ve been meaning to read for years, Wolf to the Slaughter, by Ruth Rendell because I can’t believe there won’t be more Inspector Wexfords, and The Chancellor Manuscript by Robert Ludlum. Mind you, I could change my mind and read something else altogether. The big thing is, I need to do some reading. I’ve been so busy for the past two years, writing and having diabetes that reading has gone by the by. (The good thing about diabetes and reading–I have to exercise. Kindle works well with a treadmill!)
I’m also planning to do Peril on the Screen. Have to watch Arsenic and Old Lace. Tradition! I’ll probably add some Midsomer Murders and Vera and who on earth knows what else?
If you sign up, too, leave a link! Can’t wait!
