Possessed BooksThese ancient-looking tomes may look like they are merely gathering dust on your bookshelf, but once someone walks by them, the middle one slides out towards its victim and emits eerie sounds. Lifelike at a size of 8 x 8 x 6.5-inches, you can scare your buds with these Possessed Books for $24.95. We wanted to know why they decided to include two copies of Silas Marner, but since we remember it being required reading in school, we figure that no one will mess with either of them before the gadget is triggered.
