Spooky And Cerebral: 3 Brainy Books For Halloween

Filed by KOSU News in Art & Life.

Even if it’s been a long time since you went to a haunted house or dressed up in a costume to troll the neighborhood for candy, if you’re like me, this time of year still makes you long for a scary story. The leaves are turning colors, it’s getting colder—what better time to curl up in front of a fire with a hot cup of apple cider and a book that will make your heart beat a little faster as you wonder if that sound you just heard was merely the rattling of the windowpane?

Of course fall is also a time when many of us decide to put aside our beach reads and delve into something more serious. But not to worry. In addition to being entertaining, these three spooky books will make you feel like you really know your American lit. [Copyright 2011 National Public Radio]
