Scariest Novel Character Quiz

In March we did a different kind of quiz where you all voted on the best sports movies.  We’re going to try that with a Halloween theme.  You need to choose the 10 most scary characters in literature and list them in order (1 being the scariest).  I’ll be scoring each choice based on where it appears on your list (10 points for #1, etc.) and then you will earn points based on how well your list matches up with everyone else.  Sounds like fun, right?

You are welcome to write-in a candidate and once you do I’ll add him/her/it to the list of choices.  You have until Sunday and I’ll post the results on Halloween.  Please encourage your other bookie friends to participate even of they don’t do the quizzes.  We want this be scientific after all 😉
