Read in July, 2009

Ok- Rip Van is as amazing as it was when I read it at age 8. Sleepy Hollow- beautiful writing, but no scary blond twin girls and levitating ghostly women a la Tim Burton. Spectre Bridegroom is my favorite- the kind of story perfect for Halloween night, read with candle by bedside. Mount Kiljoy- I'm sorry, I know this is cheating, I cannot finish the last story. It's way too boring. I know this is very un-literary of me. Sew buttons.
