This week's question is: "What are you reading now and why are you reading it?"
Answer: I'm reading Dracula by Bram Stoker. It is one of my favorite horror stories and I've seen many movie versions, but I've never gotten around to reading the actual book. It is a story that is so enmeshed in our collective unconscious that I think everyone knows who Dracula is and they certainly know what a vampire is! It is a classic, it is one of the most famous books ever written, it is it still being published, and I would say it is the basis of a cultural phenomena.
Well this year I decided that I *had* to read this book, no more putting it off! So, I came up with The Dusty Volumes Reading Challenge. (Click side button for more information.) I downloaded it for free on my Kindle and I'm really enjoying it. It seems at odds to read such a classic piece of literature on such new technology, but it is really not lessening the experience. I hope to put my review up soon!
