If you haven’t heard of the 4R’s Challenge, you should definitely check it out. It’s really simple. All you need to do is set up your profile on the Forum; write something about yourself and the kind of books you like. The other members, based on what you have written and your preference, will suggest a book for you. You have to acquire the book from somewhere, read it and review it. See? I told you it’s simple.
The 4 Rs stand for Recommend, Read, Review, and Repeat.
And moreover, the forum is very user friendly and easy to navigate. So I’m hoping to see you there.
And don’t forget to join the Forum. I’m sure it will be fun.

I wanted recommendations for a horror book, something that will really creep me out.
Here are the recommendations on the 4R’s challenge Forum:
1) Whispers by Deen Koontz from Sandy
2) Pet Semetary by Stephen King from Sandy
3) The Other by Thomas Tryon from booknaround
4) Short story collection of Edgar Allan Poe from Dave.
5) The Road by Cormac McCarthy from thekoolaidmom
6) The Road, Life as We Knew It from Nymeth
7) The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson for a traditional creppy story from Nymeth
8 ) Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz from heidenkind
9) The Mummy by Anne Rice from heidenkind
10) Daughter of the Blood by Anne Bishop from heidenkind
11) The Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill from tokemise
12) The Haunting of Hill House and Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill from Gavin
13) Pet Sematary by Stephen King from literatehousewife
How is a girl to decide?
I own The Road and have been meaning to read it since a long time. I think Stephen King, Anne Rice, Anne Bishop and Dean Koontz should be available in the bookstore or the library. I have been searching for The Haunting of Hill House in bookstores here, but seems like it isn’t available. He said could order it for me but the price is almost 4 times a normal book.
I’m hoping to get my hands on Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill. I’ve been reading his 20th Century Ghosts on and off and really like it. I like his writing style.
I have been wanting to read something by Edgar Allan Poe but haven’t got the chance. I’m not even sure where to start.
The Other by Thomas Tryon is something that I’m particularly excited about. Booknaround says, “I still have nightmares about it and I read it almost 30 years ago.” Sounds cool huh?
I might just go to the bookstore and try my luck or I’ll see if I can get ‘The Other’ ordered at a normal price.
What do you think? Is there something else you would like to suggest?
Sorry for not acknowledging them early.
