As we’ve said before, R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps was a major part of pretty much every child’s life in the 90s. We collected the books, bought the swag and told the scary stories around the campfire. Needless to say, we’re always on the lookout for R.L. Stine-related anything. So when the New York Times released an exclusive interview with Stine, in which he lists what is currently on his night stand — and so much more — we couldn’t resist sharing it with our BookTrib readers.

“A friend once accused me of reading ‘beach reading’ all year long and I think she was right,” Stine says in the interview. “I read mostly thrillers, mysteries and new fiction. Waiting for me right now:”
