Ghost Stories and Research

This isn’t going to be a very long post.  In fact, I’m not sure it even counts as a post at all.  I just wanted to share a picture of my library’s Halloween ghost story display.  As you know, I am quite partial to the ghost story and I love seeing them celebrated!

I actually went to the library seeking books on ghosts in history and in fiction for a presentation I’m working on.  Conveniently, I found several right there next to the display!  I’m really looking forward to reading them.  I’ve got to be honest, I kind of love doing research.  It’s so interesting, everything that the world has left to teach and discover.  Learning is just fun.

I also totally found Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell in the YA section, so I will probably be signing off here very soon in order to read it.  I love YA and I don’t care what anyone thinks.

Have a great Wednesday, everyone! Go read a ghost story.  Be scared.  Halloween is upon us!

  1. A couple of ghost stories that I like are The Winter Ghosts by Kate Mosse, and Strangers by Taichi Yamada (though one needs to work hard at Japanese literature to appreciate it).

  2. Hmm , I found myself recently watching a TV show called “A Haunting” I do like it and not just because Halloween is around the corner. My favorite movie so far is “The Others” with Nicole Kidman. I love the suspense, not knowing what really is going on until at the end.

  3. ‘The Others’ was one of those films where I felt an inner chill when it came to the truth o the situation. I didn’t see it coming either. Hadn’t had that feeling since seeing ‘The Innocents’ (early film version of The Turn of the Screw) with Deborrah Kerr. Creepy!
