Paranormal America by Christopher Bader, Joseph Baker, and Frederick Carson Mencken
Paranormal America: Ghost Encounters, UFO Sightings, Bigfoot Hunts, and Other Curiosities in Religion and Culture - Frederick Carson Mencken,Christopher Bader,Joseph Baker

I found this book while searching through my library's online catalog. It didn't have a description, which some books on the catalog don't. But I borrowed it anyway, thinking it to be about the paranormal in America.

The book does have to do with the paranormal, but more so with people that believe in the paranormal. There are many charts throughout the book and the authors have studied surveys from people of different religions, races, education, etc.

Here and there the book was interesting, but for the most part, it just didn't hold my interest. It was kind of dry. While the data they collected and studied is a bit fascinating, I think it best if you wish to know about the people who believe in the paranormal is to talk to them. Despite what the book shows, we're a varied group from all different backgrounds, race, religions and so on.

The book was just okay for me.

Dark Memories Wandering Souls: True Haunted Accounts in the Amish Heartland by Donna M. Miller
Dark Memories Wandering Souls - Donna Miller

Dark Memories Wandering Souls is the author's true story of paranormal experiences throughout her life. The book begins with her childhood and the trauma she endured due to her grandfather. She then shares the experiences she has had in her adult and the paranormal investigating activities she does with her sisters.

I liked the book, but it needed some editing. There were spelling errors and misused words. It also kind of jumped around. It would go from telling one to another right away and sometimes I needed to reread to see the author was telling about different experiences.

It is by no means a bad book. I liked it and I know it how it hard it must have been hard to share her traumatic experiences in such a public form. I think all it needed was some editing to really make it shine.

It is a good book and I liked reading about the author's paranormal experiences.

Tomes of Terror: Haunted Bookstores and Libraries by Mark Leslie
Tomes of Terror: Haunted Bookstores and Libraries - Mark Leslie

One night, while I was browsing the online catalog for my library, I came across this book. It combines three things I love: bookstores, libraries and the paranormal. I just needed to read this book.

The book has three sections: Canada, United States of America and International. All three sections have plenty of spooky stories about ghosts haunting bookstores or libraries.

From reading Tomes of Terror, I found some places I'd love to visit. The Willard Library located in Evansville, Indiana is one thing. The cool thing about them is that they have ghost cams -which I now know thanks to this book - and with a quick search on Google, you can find them and watch them for a chance to see some paranormal activity.

The Haunted Bookshop in Melbourne, Australia is a bookstore I'd love to visit one day. Apparently, they have lots and lots of paranormal books and a ghost tour.

A few of the stories I really enjoyed were the one about the man who bought a military book and its former owner came home with him. And also, the one about R.L. Stine and Christopher Pike books ending up in piles on the floor.

Overall, it was a really great book of true ghost stories.

Ghostly Images: Catch the Spirits by Joe Svehla

This book has true stories of ghostly activity in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Many of the stories recounted are stories that were told to the author, but there are some that were the author's own experiences.

It was a good book of ghost stories.
