Halloween book collections?

I suppose this is kind of a silly question, being as most of the people that read this blog are book fanatics, but do you have a separate little hoard collection of Halloween books?

Well, guess what-- I DON'T!! Strange, right?? I probably have like 2 or 3 Halloween books in the house that we actually own. (Well, maybe 4 or 5…or possibly 6. But we all know that's by no means enough for a holiday collection!)

You see, we get most of our Halloween stuff at the library each year. But this year I noticed a small problem: I think we've read ALL the Halloween books our library has! Plus, the good stuff is usually checked out around Halloween. (Obviously!) So, I think it's time I start gathering up some good Halloween books for our home library.  Here are a few I'm thinking of buying…

The Hallo-wiener by Dave Pilkey (We own a wiener dog so we really ought to own this book!)

Bone Soup by Cambria Evans (I'm not sure how I haven't purchased this yet. Robyn has blogged about it twice and admitted it is the favorite book from her Halloween collection…I guess I can't take a hint.)

A Job for Wittilda by the Buehners (I love this quirky book! I think I mention it every Halloween!)

Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson (I actually bought this book last year and then LEFT IT AT THE STORE!!! When I went back all the Halloween books were put away so I didn't try to find it, I just go my money back-- if you were wondering.)

Over in the Hollow by Rebecca Dickinson (I already have a collection of 'over in the…' books so this is obviously a book I should own.)

Cinderella Skeleton by Robert D. San Souci (The girls are still obsessed though it's been a couple weeks since we've had to return it to the library.)

Frankie Stein by Lola M. Schafer (This was the favorite library find last Halloween.)

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat! by Lucille Colandro (We love a good 'old lady' book in this house!)

Vampirina Ballerina by Anne Marie Pace (Its sweet and adorable! Not spooky, all fun!  We need the companion book too!!)

Of course some of these are just sort of monster-ish or witchy themed books that would be great to read all year round-- which we probably will! What are the must own books in your Halloween collection?

Happy holiday book collecting!
