Waterstones.com Encourages Teenagers to Read This Halloween with Books that Bite

(October 28, 2011)

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 10/29/11 -- In recent years, modern vampire-related fiction like the Twilight Saga, Morganville series, and The Vampire Diaries has had teenagers queuing outside bookshops for the latest releases.

And vampire novels continue to be among the most-searched for and best-selling books on Waterstones.com despite fierce competition from other ghastly ghouls like werewolves and zombies.

With this in mind, Waterstones.com has produced a digital timeline of the popular vampire novels through the ages proving that vampire fiction isn't a new phenomenon and encouraging young people to try out some classics such as the 1797 'Christabel' by Samuel Taylor Coleridge or Bram Stoker's 1897 classic, 'Dracula'.

A recent survey by the National Literacy Trust showed that less than a third of school children read every day and that the older children are, the less likely they are to read.


Halloween is a great time to get young people reading more!

Liz Horne, Online Teen Fiction Buyer for Waterstones.com says "There is a wealth of great vampire fiction available which is accessible to teens and adults alike. It's not just vampires; fallen angels are the hottest new trend in horror writing - perfect for Halloween".

Waterstone's is a British book specialist established in 1982 that employs around 4,500 staff throughout the UK and Europe. Waterstones.com stocks 1000's of books with free UK delivery.
