Or do you buy them used / second-hand, from their site?

Yeah I bought them from their site. But I also bought Runaway and Night Games from the store a few years ago. I do believe there are still some B&N stores that sell Fear Street books.

Ever heard from Ebay?

Yeah, I was thinking of buying some there. But the thing is they sell the books in groups. Half I already have and half I never read. So I don't wanna buy books that I already have. Maybe if they sold them separately.

Okay, cool!


I get what you mean. But there are also lots of sellers on Ebay who sell books separately. Or sites as http://www.alibris.com/ - have also every single R.L. Stine book for sale, or a site as http://www.paperbackswap.com/ = Free shipping, and you'll never pay more than $ 3,45 per book; literally.

Just recently purchased eight books to add to my collection. Hopefully they'll all be here in two weeks time. What I bought is below:

1. The Horror of the Black Ring (Goosebumps Series 2000 #18) [Never owned or read before, so I'm excited for this one.]

2. Horror Hotel - Part I: The Vampire Checks in (Ghosts of Fear Street #34) [I'll believe this when I see it, literally, as I bought it off eBay with no picture, still worth the risk though if I can get my hands on this pretty elusive book]

3. Welcome to Dead House (Goosebumps #1) [Use to own, of course, and I remember really liking this book, helped by how great the two-part episode was]

4. The Evil Moon (Fear Street: Cataluna Chronicles #1) [Never owned or read this either, and I'm sure it'll be an interesting read, like most Fear Street books]

5. Beach Party (Point Horror novel) [Personally, I often confuse this with Beach House, which I already own, so it's nice that I'll own both to stop the confusion]

6. A Night in Terror Tower (Goosebumps #27) [Another book I use to own, also was an amazing episode from the series]

7. The Knight in Screaming Armor (Give Yourself Goosebumps #9) [Use to own a while back, and was one of my favorite GYG books in the past, as I read it basically to tatters)

8. What Holly Heard (Fear Street #34) [Never owned or read before, but as most of the original Fear Street books are good, I just decided to randomly get this one)

I'll report on when I get these, and I'm so happy to slowly (oh so slowly) add to my Stine collection.

I do hate to double-post, but an update on these. I now own all of the books I mentioned in mt previous post here except A Night in Terror Tower (which had been sold, but the people forgot to remove it from their listing on eBay). I have read Beach Party, and I'll review that sometime, but I also have seven other books besides these as well, which is why I'm posting again.

So, I now also have, in no real order:

1. The Hitchhiker (Solo book) [Never owned or read before, but it's an earlier book by him, relatively speaking, so it should be interesting]

2. The New Year's Party (Fear Street Super Chiller #9) [I've started reading this, and I really like it, but it made me realize how many characters from the Fear Street novels intersect, as this has characters I recognize from at least three other books]

3. The Beast (Solo book) [Use to own this, but I never read it, so it should be interesting, though the time travel angle irks me a bit]

4. Scream of the Evil Genie (Give-Yourself-Goosebumps #13) [Another classic GYG book, I remember this book having a lot of different stories in it, so it should be fun]

5. Why I'm Afraid of Bees (Goosebumps #17) [Use to own, though I don't remember too much about it; mentioned a lot on TVTropes in funny ways, so that'll fun]

6. Monster Blood II (Goosebumps #18) [Also use to own, though I don't think I ever read it; now the only Monster Blood book from the original series I'm missing is III]

7. Revenge of the Lawn Gnomes (Goosebumps #34) [I remember this one being fun, so I look forward to jumping into it sometime)

With that, I now own 64 Stine books, ranging from August 1990 to January 2000 (being a comic book collector, I have them ordered in chronological order). Hope to continue growing my collection in the future.
