I never read Goosebumps books. My childhood reading was really quite weird--no Enid Blyton or 'modern' books, all Louisa May Alcott, Francis Hodgson Burnett and stuff like that. Oh, and Noel Streatfield. Over, and over, and over again. Once I sat down and thought 'I bet I can write the first chapter word-for-word' and I *nearly* did. Made some mistakes ^^. I had a 'literary' childhood I guess. In contrast, my current reading is as trashy and pulpy as it gets! Karma, I guess.
I'm a total wuss when it comes to scary stuff. I get nightmares SOOO easily. It's why I read so much paranormal romance--it kind of defuses all the scary ghosty, vampy, were-wolfy stuff. I mean, if the 'things that go bump in the night' are in love with you and protecting you, you can't really be scared of them.
I once watched an episode of 'Monster Blood' on Fox Kids (god I love that channel) and I've felt claustrophobic on aeroplanes ever since. Well, aeroplanes are claustrophobic anyway, but 'Monster Blood' just made it worse.
