Dracula! I'm only two chapters in, but I'm already scared. Last night, Jonothan Harker had just cut himself shaving and I screamed, waking up the whole house. :$

I had a similar shock first time I read Salem's Lot when I was about 13. It was late at night and there was a storm outside and just as I got to a bit where there were vampires everywhere, there was a power cut. It suddenly went pitch black and there was a tree tapping against the window! Didn't half make me jump.

Anyway, currently I am most of the way through The Dreaming Void by Peter F Hamilton. It's looking like it will be a good trilogy.

You screamed. Reading a book.

You are very highly strung, young lady!


I just get lost in it! I cry reading books, too. :$

Salem's Lot is proper scary, to be fair, Afinkawan.

I've only cried reading two books.
Which is weird, because I cry watching films all the time.

Never read them! I cried during...Wuthering Heights, Pride and Prejudice, The Kite Runner, Atonement...almost definitely more that I've forgotten...But I don't cry in films for some reason.

Huh!
Weird innit.

I nearly cry in plays. What about you? Plays are halfway inbetween books and films. (Well, I think so.)

Nope I don't usually cry in plays. Almost in Phantom, though.

Is this a good or a bad thing?
