Scary book links from around the web

Goodnight Moon is not usually considered a scary book. In fact, it's a beloved fixture in most people's memories of early childhood. But check out this reading from Graywolf Press author Benjamin Percy (Red Moon, The Wilding). Chilling!

Ever wonder what your favorite horror and thriller writers do on Halloween? Well, Ron Charles--deputy editor of The Washington Post's book section--has checked in with Anne Rice, Peter Straub, Justin Cronin, and others to see how they'll be spending the most sacred day in the horror calendar.

Book Keeping, Farrar, Straus and Giroux's readers' community on Facebook, has been posting Halloween-themed spine poetry for the last few days. 

Buzzfeed gets in the spirit with 18 Literary Pumpkins for a Bookish Halloween. We wanted to choose a favorite, but they're all so beautiful!

Bookish on literary Halloween costumes, scariest books, and more.

Here's hoping your Halloween reading is truly terrifying.
