  1. I’ve been looking forward to this and it’s here at last! Hope to read the title tale in ‘The Bloody Chamber’ though sadly won’t have time for the remaining excellent stories … 🙁

    • That’s the good thing about a collection of short stories, you don’t have to commit to reading the whole thing necessarily. Maybe later!

  2. Bother, I’ve found out about this too late to join in, but I’m looking forward to reading your and everyone else’s posts.

    • Too late to join in with your own posts, perhaps, but everyone can participate by reading and commenting. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I just found a copy of Witch Week on my classroom bookshelf–donated, I think, by my sister. Having never read it, I figure this is a good week to do so!

    • I enjoyed your review, Jim, thanks for linking. I’m thinking of reading that book for next year’s Witch Week theme: Made in America.
