Audible gave me a free copy of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” ages and ages ago, and I finally listened to it today on the first chunk of a good, long #audiowalk. The story was just okay, which I expected from my previous attempts to read it, but the walk was great. I went 6.25 miles, drank a free coffee, bought cheap butter, and found a ninjabread person cookie cutter at the thrift store! Whee!

Thanks to my #HHS package from @Littlewolf1 , I finally got to read this classic. I loved the Disney version as a kid. There was some unnecessary racism, which probably shouldn‘t surprise me. Otherwise it‘s a fun spooky classic. #Screamathon @4thhouseontheleft

I included The Legend of Sleepy Hollow in my Halloween Classics post, but I‘ve never actually read it. So I decided it was time to change that. It was shorter than I realized. And I was shocked to find out that Ichabod isn‘t really a likable character. But I definitely know why it‘s a classic. It gave me the creeps.

I've never read this, and I'm glad the #ChildrensClassicRead2021 for July gave me the opportunity! A fun slice of cheesy Gothic "horror" that was less scary than I expected but still pretty atmospheric and gripping. I would have liked more of the Headless Horseman, though ??

@TheBookHippie

TheBookHippie MEEE TOO! I did really enjoy it as well. 6mo
mabell I LOVE this! It‘s fun to read just the beginning for the atmosphere - such a cozy setting. 🍂🍁 6mo

batsy @mabell Yes to the atmosphere! And I agree that he had it coming 😂 6mo

TheBookHippie @tpixie Me either as it scared me as an 8 year old child I had no real memories but this was a very good read for me and I agree with you all, he had it coming! The atmosphere was done just splendid! 6mo
UwannaPublishme My sentiments exactly! Not as scary as expected, but still quite eerie. 5mo
batsy @UwannaPublishme Yes! Quite enjoyable but would liked a bit more of a fright 😆 5mo
rohit-sawant Feel likewise! I reread this some months ago as research for a story and was struck by how well crafted it is in terms of atmosphere. 5mo

The first is an adaptation of "The Wind in the Willows", and the second is a creepy re-telling of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow". Both stories have enjoyed lasting impacts, and the scary "Sleepy Hollow" segments remain compelling bits of animation that have more than enough power to unsettle modern audiences.

Let‘s see if I get spooked like an eight year old 💀🐎

Anyone welcome to read a long with us!

I am thinking that I should have oatmeal and warm apple juice to eat and drink while I read my first bit to relive summer camp 🏕

TheBookHippie I‘m thinking I‘ll read all the stories this month .. 7mo

GingerAntics Oh, you found a copy with all the short stories in it? I think I‘ll be reading at least Sleepy Hallow during the day, with all the lights on. 7mo

GingerAntics Your camp actually let you have scary stories? I just thought of the Jesus Camp documentary where some of the boys start telling scary/ghost/camp stories, but then one of the dads comes in and tells them the Bible tells them to focus on what is good and pure. 🙄 Kill joy. I thought the Bible also said to be joyous in the lord, and those boys were quite joyful until daddy kill joy came in (it was the one who turned out gay, too). 7mo
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics Well no parents around and our counselors were college kids so..........she got away with it! Not a main camp events but in our cabin or out on our campouts in the woods. Freaked us out! It wasn't overtly religious just subtle- the overtly junk came after I was grown, today it's nauseating. I have yet to watch the documentary I don't know if I can do it! YIKES. 7mo
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie gotta love camp councillors!!! 💙💙💙 Things have gotten REALLY overt lately, like in the last 10-15 years it seems Christianity has gotten more and more in your face. Jesus Camp is like a train wreck. I wanted to turn it off so many times because these people were NUTS!!! I just couldn‘t stop watching it, though. 7mo

Next up #CHILDRENSCLASSICREAD2021 JULY

Why July? A young counselor would read this to us a long long long time ago when I was at summer camp -to try to freak us out - and I‘ve never read it myself. So here it goes!

Anyone welcome to read along. I read little snippets with my morning coffee and it‘s become a sacred time for me these last few years I‘ve done this.

GingerAntics Sleepy Hollow is considered a children‘s story?! 7mo
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics yes a children‘s classic 🤯😜🙈 literature 🤷🏻‍♀️😳 7mo

TheBookHippie @GingerAntics it never registered with me either until I started researching children‘s classics I had not read and all the memories came back so I assigned it to July 😜 should be fun I remember nothing! 7mo
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie I saw the Johnny Depp movie, but I heard the story is totally different. 7mo
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics I‘m hoping for Grimms 😂 7mo
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie like Grimm‘s fairy tales? Those are quite dark. 7mo
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics I know -as a child I loved them -clearly I have issues 🤣 I imagine it‘s probably not as scary as my memory of the event. 7mo
UwannaPublishme I remember reading this one ages ago in school. Will be fun to revisit! Plus it‘s on Serial Reader! 7mo
UwannaPublishme @GingerAntics Oh, I loved the Johnny Depp movie. He‘s easy on the eyes. 😉 7mo
GingerAntics @UwannaPublishme he sure is… you got to read this in school? No way could we have read a “scary story” in school. We had to get individual parental permission to read science fiction. 7mo

LitStephanie @TheBookHippie it is crazy how many different dishes used to be offered for special occasions. We just don't really do that anymore. 7mo
TheBookHippie @LitStephanie Since that‘s my MO I look forward to it. You‘re right though not many people offer multiple dishes and courses. 7mo
UwannaPublishme @GingerAntics I‘m an old fart! 😄 Back then, they let us read just about anything. I‘m sure it was an assigned school read. 7mo
GingerAntics @UwannaPublishme you weren‘t coddled by the school system because a few crazy parents decided they didn‘t want their sweet little children to know that life sucks sometimes. 🙄 It‘s ridiculous. I work with teenagers and one of the things they like about me is that I tell them how it is. They know when they‘re being coddled or talked down to and they hate it. 7mo
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie really? That‘s cool! It‘s always good to have options. 7mo

I'm currently reading The Spellbook of Katrina Van Tassel, based on The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Since I've never read The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, I decided to check it out on Serial Reader. When I found it on Serial Reader, I was surprised that it was only 5 "episodes." I thought it was a book, and never realized it was a short story. Who knew?! ? So, I read it during lunch today.

#MoviesinMay

Day 17: Johnny Depp

One of my favorite actors!

Catherine_Willoughby Love Depp's earlier work (90s) but not a fan of his latest work , on the fence about Fantastic Beast because it reminds me of The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (same actors in that project). He can only play the odd character for so long , in his 50s now 8mo
DarkMina @Catherine_Willoughby I haven‘t seen the Fantastic Beasts. Honestly really didn‘t appeal to me. I see your point about always playing the odd character. Strangely enough I think Public Enemies is one of his best movies and he plays the bank robber John Dillinger. Not one of his odd characters. I think he does a great job with his characters even if the movie isn‘t great if that makes sense? 8mo
Klou Great job!!! 8mo

Watched this last night...I remembered liking it better, but was distracted by all the Johnny Depp/Tim Burton quirks this time around. Was this the last moment in Depp‘s career before he fully committed to being Captain Jack Sparrow 24/7? I hate when movies show people hanging outside in the snow without warm clothing. Not believeable, even in 1799.

I listened to this last night. I didn‘t realize it was written in 1820, which explains some of the archaic language used. I loved the descriptions of the Hudson River, Tarrytown, the Tappan Zee, etc. When I was a teen I started working for a think tank in Irvington-on-Hudson every summer through part of college. On our first trip there we stayed in Tarrytown and toured Irving‘s land and home. To hear the descriptions made me “homesick.”

For a short story, it's kind of funny how many pages went on about the community that Ichabod Crane had moved to - pages and pages describing the people, the homes, hills and meadows before finally getting to the people which are described with equal detail. What's funnier is that for as long as I can remember this has been depicted as a ghost or even horror story but it's a character driven love story?!? ⁠

Much love to @SerialReader

It's been a long time since I've revisited this tale. My grandmother was a huge fan of holidays especially Halloween. The first audiobook experience I remember having was listening to The Legend of Sleepy Hollow on cassette tape in a dark house curled up on the couch. It was spooky and fun.

Going to school in NYC meant being exposed to the gothic writings of Washington Irving from an early age. The fictional events take place just up river from here. After a visit to Washington Irving‘s house when I was 9 - either with school or Girl Scouts- I dreamed that Irving‘s ghost was in my bedroom closet. I believed that for years. It was probably some other ghost. 👻

Much of the story tells how Ichabod tries to win the hand of a rich farmer‘s daughter. Irving‘s skilful description really set the scene. There‘re descriptions of the beautiful autumnal countryside and all the glorious food at the banquet. The Headless Horseman appeared towards the end and it was kind of spooky. A fun read, different from the Disney & film adaptations, and I regret Ichabod in the book is nothing like Johnny Depp. #Screamathon RC
