Glad you had fun with the candy scavenger hunt! Next up, the scary books guessing game. if you've participated in the GGD box art activity, you'll know how this works.

Here is how to participate.

1) SPOILER TAG YOUR ANSWERS to avoid having others see your answers immediately. Some forum posters naturally scroll without realizing they might see the answer too early. Type spoiler, add the list of book titles and close the spoiler as you will see demonstrated in the code below.

Code:
[spoiler] name all 25 book titles here [/spoiler]


2 ) GUESSING IS OKAY, but don't leave any of them empty. You may have a place holder (such as investigating/still looking/finding, etc), but be sure that all 25 book titles mentioned before the deadline. Otherwise, you won't be considered as an entrant for this activity. The names of the book titles do NOT have to be exact, and you can get some of them wrong (this is a guessing game!). You may also edit your posts to change your answers before the deadline.

3) What do you get in return? You will receive the book hunt emblem that's dedicated to Halloween!

4) There is no rush for time either. You don't have to post before others so take your time to investigate each image piece. We'll run this little activity from now until November 2 at 10am PT.

Now that you have read the rules, click the spoiler tag to view the images. [spoiler]

Ask for help: If you have problems creating a spoiler tag in your post due to a technical problem such as being a low level to use the wysiwyg editor, ask a moderator or admin for help. Simply say so in your post in this thread. We'll get your post situated.

UPDATE: Due to some concerns about people copy/pasting answers from others an admin will go through and edit users entries and conceal them every few days as long as someone's entry causes them to be eligible to receive the emblem. Please continue to use spoiler tags Thanks!

Well, Synthia loves horror stuff, so when she returns from vacation, we should probe her about her horror knowledge!

I was expecting more Stephen Kings book. Synthia should do an action and adventure list, I'd love to do one of those. EDIT: I messed up one one of the books.
