The Graveyard Book

The Graveyard Book - Neil Gaiman My family and I are listenening to this book on the internet - Gaiman visited 9 different bookstores as part of his promo tour, and read a chapter in each store. The readings were videotaped, and are online. It's fun because they aren't polished, and in this way, I sort of feel as if I'm in the bookstore, too.

As always, this is a story which walks the line between creepy and not creepy, in the way that only Gaiman can write. We're about half way through, and so far, it's a fun story.
