The Dark is ... reading

Today is Midwinter's Eve: the 20th of December
It it today that the action starts in Susan Cooper's 'The Dark is Rising'.
This year, I will be re-reading the story in the company of thousands of others in a reading which has been orchestrated by Robert MacFarlane and Julia Bird. The hashtag #TheDarkisReading is trending on Twitter in the UK in the Top 5, so a lot of discussion around the book.

I've just read the action that takes place today, as Will Stanton prepares for his 11th birthday tomorrow, and the snow starts to fall, the rooks behave strangely, and "the Walker is abroad"...

If you have a copy, join the action, and if not then buy one or get it on Kindle Unlimited or some other way....
