Top 10 Scary Books

The air is getting cooler, offices are being decorated, and The Simpson's have aired their annual Treehouse of Horror episode which means Halloween is right around the corner! I'm not a fan of scary movies but I do occasionally like to read a good scary book. Below I've listed several books that I (and other library staff) feel offer some spine-tingling thrill and that are available at the Dick Smith Library (call numbers included to help you in your search!). The links also take you directly to the catalog record for additional information. Feel free to leave a comment telling us your favorite scary stories!
