Another Reading Challenge!

I am looking at another reading challenge, this one designed to scare you sh*tless, compliments of Donna at Bites.   So directly from the pumpkin's mouth, here is a tidbit of what Donna has to say about the new challenge:

Do you get a sick pleasure out of things that go bump in the night? When you read a scary story, do you turn the lights down as far as you can and read by candlelight with a blanket over your head? Do you wait until nighttime to break out those macabre tales? Does the month of October make you giddy?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then you're ready for Bites' Scared Sh*tless Reading Challenge! What is the Scared Sh*itless Reading Challenge you ask? Well that's simple! When you sign up for the Scared Sh*tless Reading Challenge, you're vowing to read something, or many somethings, horrifying during the month of October (and this does not include Sarah Palin's autobiography).

What do you think, Psychotic readers?  Sound fun?  Sound interesting?  Sound SCARY??  To read more about the Challenge and sign up yourself, click on over to Bites!

I don't know how many scary books I will be able to complete during October but I am putting Ghost Story by Peter Straub as number one on my list.  I have wanted to read it for ages and heard it's deathly scary so it seems the perfect book for this challenge.

How about you?  Up for the challenge?

Thanks for the pimp! But I'd prefer that you just blurb a portion of the post and then just point to the rest of it instead of copying and pasting the whole thing. Thanks!
