Okay - Shelley's "Frankenstein", Stoker's "Dracula", Le Fanu's "Carmilla". Bet horror/scary books ever.

LeFanu's story is probably scarier than the other two - Frankenstein and Dracula - which were more scary in movie form. Scariest movie I watched as a kid was "The Mummy". Didn't sleep well for several nights, and for years my brother and I for gags dragged one leg behind us. We were easily amused back then. You know, now that I think about it, "Huckleberry Finn" had a few scary scenes in it.

I don't know what is the scariest book, but a scary book that I thought was extremely well written was The Exorcist, by W.P. Blatty.
