R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril, orR.I.P.for short, a participatory event wherein we the people spend however little, or much, time we want over the months of September and October imbibing all things ghastly and ghostly.
R.I.P. VIIofficially runs from September 1st through October 31st.
The purpose ofR.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VIIis to enjoy books and movies/television that could be classified (by you) as:
Mystery. Suspense. Thriller. Dark Fantasy. Gothic. Horror. Supernatural. Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.
This year I'm going to again do the first peril ...
Peril the First:
Read four books, any length, that you feel fit (the very broad definitions) ofR.I.P.literature. It could be King or Conan Doyle, Penny or Poe, Chandler or Collins, Lovecraft or Leroux…or anyone in between.
Peril of the Group Read:
This Peril was added last year and was a lot of fun. As a new twist this year I am getting others in on the act. We will be doing two group reads duringR.I.P. VII, one in September and one in October. The September Group Read selection is:
The Little Strangerby Sarah Waters.
This group read is being hosted by Heather and Andi of The Estella Society. All the details and the sign up can be foundhere. They also created the fun banner picture above. Love the little skull and crossbones background.
As a quick preview though:
We’ve decided to keep this loosey-goosey. It starts September 1st, just as RIP starts. We’ll meet up here, to discuss around the halfway point, on September 10th, and end on the 17th. The book may look long, but I promise, it’s a quick read if you can get into it. And honestly, I don’t see how you can’t get into it. The audiobook is read by Simon Vance. I’ve already listened to some of it and can tell, it’s going to be a stellar listen. So download it, plug in, crack open that spine and join us starting September 1st.
I was sent Plackers new Dual Grip Fruit Smoothie Swirl Kids’ Flossers, designed with a unique dual grip handle making them easy for kids of all ages to use and allowing parents to assist. This new angled head and dual grip allows a place to grip if your child is able to floss or for us parents to floss our little ones teeth for them. I personally have tried these and the floss is amazing quality. It is engineered not to shred, stretch or break and so far so good! I also have not experienced them getting stuck in teeth which is something that happens to me with most floss. These are also smaller in size than regular flossers which is perfect for your children's smaller mouth size. They are also bpa free!
Flossing regularly removes plaque and food from areas between the teeth that can’t be reached by brushing alone. “Dentists recommend as soon as a child has two teeth that are touching, parents should help them begin a daily flossing routine,” said Greg McCormick, Senior Vice Presi…
I originally discovered this concealer when looking for an affordable green concealer that had good reviews. I had purchased some mineral green powder on ebay before, but it always made a huge mess for me when trying to apply it while out. (otherwise I loved it).
I started subscribing to the Subscribe and Save for the Green concealer, which I still buy and use. Then one day, I was reading the reviews again for whatever reason and happened to see someones review on the porcelain. She was using it to cover red which is why I was using the green. I figured I'd give it a try and fell in love! This stuff is amazing and again only $5 or less! I just subscribed to the yellow to try that one out.
