I just finished this book and must say that it was a lot of fun. I am so used to paranormal books being about traditional hauntings, such as the ones about highways, castles, homes, or schools. This book was very different and offered a lot of new information. I enjoyed both the historical facts and personal experiences that were shared throughout the paranormal tales. It made the book very easy to read and I would recommend this paperback to anyone who enjoys the ghostly side of life. ( )

√ Mildly Interesting Spooks

TOMES OF TERROR is a compilation of a large number of short "ghost" or "spookty" tales involving libraries. The book is divided by world regions, starting with Canada, then USA, then International.

There are stories of elevators starting themselves, books re-arranging themselves (or falling to the floor), wandering spooks, strange sounds, etc.

There are several appendices for further reading on haunted libraries.

√ All in all, an interesting, but not frightening assortment of fun tales. ( )
