  Billy's Answer

Halloween with Morris and Boris was the first book I ever read when I was a small child, most likely before kindergarten. That was my foray into reading. I think I was in first or second grade when I read my first horror book, which was a kid-friendly adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula. My first Stephen King novel was The Shining. I was in sixth or seventh grade at the time, and I've read every new King novel since then, although I've slipped behind in recent years.

  1. I apologize for the tardy publication of this week's BBH. It appears that something went awry, even though I could have sworn I had scheduled the draft last night. Fortunately, the post was saved as a draft.

  2. Thank you for sharing my question. I didn't know there was a kid version of Bram Stoker's Dracula. I'm not much into horror, but I can probably handle the kid version. I should check that out. Have a great weekend. :)

  3. Thanks for your detailed answer, Billy. I always enjoy seeing your answers and comments.

    I am NOT into horror, but I am glad you found your niche.

    I honestly don't know of a book that was my gateway.

    Have a great week!!

  4. That's great that some kids can be drawn into reading with horror and that there's material available for that.


I adore reading reader feedback! I will, however, remove all spam and pointless comments.
