Added to the Pile + 7

Just one this week and it's not even something on my TBR list or anything. I saw this walking by the Borders bargain racks at the mall and I did an abrupt halt to backtrack and pick it up. I so could not pass this one up. And all you Borders people will be happy to know that I now have a Borders member card thingy. I'm still waiting for my first coupon. Like I need anymore books right now . . .

Telling scary stories is something people have always done. It is an old-fashioned way of having a good time. Nobody tells scary stories better than Alvin Schwartz, and here, for the very first time, his three most spine-tingling books are together in one volume!

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark was the first spooky addition to Alvin Schwartz's popular books on American folklore. It contains all sorts of scary stories, including traditional "jump" stories that will make your friends JUMP with fright, and age-old stories of ghosts and witches.

More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is the satisfyingly spooky sequel full of the funny, the macabre, and the fantastic. It asks all kinds of chilling questions like: Is it possible to die - and not know it? What if a person is buried too soon? What happens to a thief foolish enough to rob a corpse?

Scary Stories 3 rounds out this collection of hair-raising tales that will make your flesh creep with more eerie stories about supernatural creatures and their strange goings-on.

Complete with Stephen Gammell's splendidly creepy and bone-chilling drawings, this collection is perfect for reading late at night - in the dark and gloom - if you dare!

I bought that book at Borders a year or so ago(Bargain rack rules!) and I really enjoyed it. I hope you do too!

Even the cover of it is scary! Happy (or maybe spooky is the right word) reading!

I so squeed myself when I saw this. And I'm sure the stories will still freak me out! The drawings alone are doing it.
