If you can
get teens interested in reading a good book, it will start a
life long love of reading. What better way to share the
joys of reading than by starting out with some good, scary
Fear Street and Point Horror series have long been a favorite of both teens and
adults. The stories are more than a little scary, sometimes humorous,
and most of all entertaining to horror lovers, young and
old. We recommend them as good Halloween entertainment to
get teens hooked on books! They are age appropriate but
parents may want to read first for approval.
If you want
some web-based fiction, be sure to visit
www.HalloweenGhostStories.com for a collection of some
great ghost stories! Some are original works, some old
standards like Poe. You'll also find Urban Legends, poems
and other goodies there. Most of the original stories are
more adult oriented so, keep the kids away!
