Fall is almost upon us and, even though it has been a glorious (and hot) summer in Seattle, I can't wait because ... R(eaders) I(mbibing) P(eril) is in its TENTH year! I started participating in 2009 when this challenge was in its fourth year so this is only my seventh but it's my favorite thing in the book blogging world (besides DWJ March, of course)!
Founded by Carl of Stainless Steel Droppings (a million thanks for creating this event, Carl!), this year it is being hosted by my lovely friends Andi and Heather at The Estella Society. Head on over to sign up for this year's fun and mayhem!

As usual, I've devoted an entire shelf of my TBR to the challenge (what I call the Infinite Peril option) ... plus a few other books.
The Penguin Book of Victorian Women in Crime
The Law and the Lady
Resorting to Murder
Bryant & May on the Loose
The Boy Who Drew Monsters
The Mousetrap and Other Plays
Rivers of London
Elegy for Eddie
The Chatelet Apprentice
Angel With Two Faces
A Wild Ride Through the Night
The Watchmaker of Filigree Street
The Devil's Workshop
The Mangle Street Murders
The League of Beastly Dreadfuls
The Madness Underneath
Code Name Verity
The Haunting of Maddy Clare
And some rereads to see if I want to keep these on my shelves ...
Return to the House of Usher
The Stolen Child
I also think that I will reread A Night in the Lonesome October again this year, an entry a day for each day in October. I might also grab a non-fiction or two from the TBR, some graphic novels from the library, or maybe even a couple of other rereads from my keeper shelves. I'm hoping to get a lot of reading done during the Dog Days of Summer Readathon (Sept. 18-20) and Dewey's 24-Hour Readathon (Oct. 17).
Well, I've obviously managed to go overboard again this year but in what I consider the best way possible -- too many books! Which book are you most looking forward to reading this RIP season? I think it's The Watchmaker of Filigree Street or The League of Beastly Dreadfuls for me. Now, off to finish my last book of August so that I can jump right in on September 1!
