Oh, Horror!

btt button

What with yesterday being Halloween, and all . . . do you read horror? Stories of things that go bump in the night and keep you from sleeping?

I thought about asking you about whether you were participating in NaNoWriMo, but I asked that last year. Although . . . if you want to answer that one, too, please feel free to go ahead and do both, or either, your choice!

Donโ€™t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the commentsโ€”or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

    As for horror, I don’t read it and don’t like horror movies – they cause me to have too many nightmares! I do remember staying up all night, when I was a teenager, reading “Rosemary’s Baby.” But the closest I get to horror any more is watching “Shaun of the Dead” in which the sight of oozing blood is tempered with laughter.
    Must get to work on my month-long novel…

  5. Hey there! Here’s mine. Happy BTT!

    I don’t like horror books or horror movies, so no, I don’t read them.

    Not participating in NaNoWriMo either, I’m not a fiction writer. Hated creative writing classes in school. Just love reading what others write!

  19. Greetings everyone! Here’s my answer: Oh, the Horror!

  20. Yes I read horror. I also read kids books that are Halloween themed. And I’m doing Nanowrimo.

    My full answer is here.

    I hope all of you had a wonderful Halloween.

  22. Hope everyone had a happy Halloween.

  28. Geez. How could I forget it’s Thursday? Thank goodness for Google Reader.

    Read my response.

  29. […] Yesterday’s Booking through Thursday asked how many people read horror, and I was very surprised to see most of the respondents narrowly define horror as gross-out horror. I suppose I shouldn’t have been—this has been a long-standing problem for horror authors, and one which I’ve been quite aware of as a horror writer in the past—but it’s been a long time since I wrote horror and so I’d largely forgotten about the issue. […]
