All Hallow’s Read

All Hallow’s Eve (most commonly known as Halloween) is celebrated on 31 October with various activities such as trick-or-treat, costume parties, pumpkin carving, jack-o-lanterns, bonfires, apple bobbing, haunted attractions, pranks, scary stories and horror films. However, in the past years there has been an effort to include literature reading into the mix, through All Hallow’s Read.

This tradition entails to give someone a scary book on the week or the night of Halloween. This link has various book recommendations.

In the following video Neil Gaiman explains the basics of All Hallow’s Read (the audio is not in sync but you get the idea).
