And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: halloween spookfest!!

I was actually assigned to write a "scary" story for Halloween for my English class, so I'll post it on here when I've finished it. I'm not sure how frightening it will be, but I'll try. :smileyhappy:

Re: halloween spookfest!!

Oh yeah…. Can you write something that doesn’t necessarily have monsters in it but really make it spooky because of the possible horror that may have happened in it….

Re: halloween spookfest!!

I have a short story which might be interesting. Please tell me if you would like to hear a highly spooky, not-happy-ending story inhabited by gargoyles, ghosts, haunted houses and a boy who does not get a very happy ending. it's not fully edited, though, so beware of spelling errorrs (like this one!).

I have a scary story for you all:

I woke up early in the morning. Scratching my eyes with exhaustion, I walked into my bathroom. Then I looked into the mirror and saw my reflection (dun dun dun)- that's supposed to be the scary music.

Isn't that the scariest story you've ever heard?

Just kidding, that's a love story :smileyhappy: :smileyhappy: :smileyhappy: :smileyhappy:

And that is why I will not be posting any scary stories. But I look forward to reading them!

Re: halloween spookfest!!

LOL!

I just though of one, inspired by tigerlilly!

Today, I was working lunch, and (thriller music begins**), NO ONE came in. Until, literally, TWO MINUTES before I was supposed to shut down. Half the school (I work on school grounds) saunters in, fifty little fifth graders, sixty sixth, etc. etc. To find me, stuffing my belongings into my bag and about to turn off the cashregister!

What do they take me for???

Re: halloween spookfest!!

True:
I walked to my car the other day and noticed that there was something under it as I walked up. Assuming that it was trash (Stupid frat boyz) I reached down to pick it up. It wasn't trash...
It was the run over decapitated head of a young woman with a horendous haircut.
It was one of those heads that you see in beauty schools. The ones they practice on. Anyway it freaked me out for a second. I litterally jumped when I saw what it was.
It turns out my dear friend Bethany thought it would be funny. Must get her back. Any ideas? The head is now the centerpiece of my small kitchen table.

Hi Rons Chic
Great post!

Re: halloween spookfest!!

That would be scary! Glad I wasn't there because I probably would've cried and screamed.

How to get your friend back? I don't know. Fake your own death for a day? No, that might be too harsh. But it would make her appreciate you more... :smileyhappy: :smileyhappy: :smileyhappy:

Re: halloween spookfest!!

yeah, get one of your more believable friends to call her up ..."Did you here? Hope is dead. She had a heart attack when faced with some kind of prank some cruel person played on her....lol. :smileyhappy:

Re: halloween spookfest!!

Yeah, but I could never fake my own death because I would be too afraid of what my friends' revenge would be. They don't believe in truce

Re: halloween spookfest!!

I was thinking less extreme. LOL
I am only 21 so a heart atack is unlikely. :smileyhappy:
Maybe a nice note from our college that she is being expelled for behaviors unbefiting a student? Its harsh but deffinetly scary. In the words of Cosmo "MAHAHA"
Love,

Any more suggestions or shall I start writing...?

Anyone catch Moonlight (CBS 9pm) or Blood Ties (Lifetime 11pm) tonight? Great shows! Vamps gotta love 'em. :smileyhappy:
