Haunted library books


Ok, this is just plain bizarre. It’s a row of faux books that, when activated by a motion sensor, move, mutter unintelligibly, and howl with electronic feedback. I laughed at the video. And I love that the book which jumps out at the victim is Silas Marner. I really would be terrified if I had to read that book again. But aren’t there more sensible choices for a haunted book, like The Turn of the Screw, or Rebecca?

    The inventor must have had something against the Victorian novel. In that case, it seems like the next best thing to _Rebecca_ would have been _Jane Eyre_.
