A friend of mine told me that Salems Lot (Steven King) is the scariest book she's ever read (thrillers are all she reads) Have you read it? I tried it and couldn't get into it.

Just put The Truth Factory aside and if you want to read it you can if not dont. I had to pass in a BR last month where I didnt like the book and DNF it and had to cancel the BR Lol! We hate when we have to cancel a BR but we have to enjoy what we are reading. So I understand.
