'Halloween Nation'

I was very excited yesterday when I was browsing amazon (which I often do) for Halloween books and I came across a brand new one! It isn't even out yet (will be released next month on April 15), and I am already anxious to get my claws, er, I mean, hands, on it. ;) I clicked on the "Look Inside" link and read to my heart's content. It isn't another "how-to" instruction book (plenty of those out there already), or another book about the history of Halloween (as much as I enjoy those!). Rather, it seems to be somewhat unique from other Halloween-themed books in that it discusses the question of 'why' Halloween is so popular, not only with kids, but with adults. It includes interviews with some well-known people in the Halloween industry about why they love Halloween like they do, and why they believe the holiday seems to become more and more popular with adults as the years go on. I think it looks like it's going to be a very interesting book, and certainly one I intend to purchase. I might even go ahead and pre-order it. It will provide me with a nice way of passing some time and satisfying my Halloween sweet tooth until October gets here. I am always on the look-out for new books or magazines to add to my collection, and I have a feeling that this one will be a great addition!
