Still at Southern? If so, Hello neighbor! I'm right up the road in Waynesboro.

No, I'm not at Southern anymore, I had to leave the school as the Admin were constantly messing up (they failed me for classes I didn't even take....long story). I moved up to Milledgeville about two years ago.

But still, Howdy neighbor! It's nice to find someone in the same state on the wide web.  biggrin.gif

I read a pretty good one recently, one of my first ghost books in fact.  'Ghost: A Firsthand Account' by Katherine Ramsland.  Basically her experiences of getting into paranormal investigation.  It's really fascinating.  At times I was really creeped out, but I couldn't stop myself! laugh.gif

I've started reading Leslie Rules' Ghosts Coast to Coast, but I've been taking my time with it.  I know it should be a quick read, but it keeps giving me the heebie jeebies.   blush.gif

It's so good to have all these recommendations!  Now if only my local bookstore would carry more books about the paranormal.  Guess I'll have to start looking into Amazon.

I read Ghosts Coast to Coast and quite enjoyed it!  But I didn't really get the heebie jeegies LoL smile.gif

The only ghost book to give me the heebie jeebies is the one I'm reading now: "Angels and Apparitions" by Barbara Duffey. But that's only because it's so poorly written. Her other works are better...

I just finished "Phantom Army of the Civil War" and I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Very entertaining, albeit not very informative.

Another gooder is "Ghosts" by Hans Holzer. You can read about ghosts and get a workout at the same time, because this book must weigh about 10 pounds!!! biggrin.gif

I just got this book today and I'm so excited! It is bloody heavy though dry.gif And not exactly a picturebook either, it reminds me of a very bad physics textbook. Lucky it's on ghosts and not physics rolleyes.gif

How true, how very true.  Makes me glad I've never taken a single physics class. tongue.gif  There are some pictures in the book, but nothing award-winning.  I just got done reading Holzer's book "Ghosts I've Met".  Very good read.  I just starting reading another of his books called "Real Hauntings".  Pure genius.  *salutes Hans Holzer*

I guess I can see why you were turned off by it.  I'll admit, the ring did get a little boring. 

As for the pictures, I wasn't that impressed with them either.  Orbs are boring, too likely to be something else. tongue.gif

I guess what appealed to me the most was the whole learning process.  It was exciting.

Thanks for the different points of view though!  Helps my learning process. happy.gif

Why exactly are orbs boring? Once you know how to spot the natural orbs and how to spot spirital orbs there is very little left to guess about. *shrug*

I agree I find orbs fascinating. The ones in Katherine's book were just dust and in one case I think the orb in question was the moon.

Has anyone bought a copy of "Encyclopedia of Haunted Places" by Jeff Belanger?  If not, WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU?! tongue.gif  Very informative about haunted places in the US, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia and Australia.  It even has a complete directory of ghost hunters and profiles on the Warrens, Loyd Auerbach, Hans Holzer & Troy Taylor!  This is a must-have book.  I recommend it.

[color=green]OOH I like Hans Hozer he has been scaring me for many years.wink.gif

I just found "The Psychic World of Bishop Pike" by Hans Holzer. I checked it out from the Anaheim Public Library. It's an oldie but it covers a haunting and some medium communications. I'm gonna love this thread. I practically hyperventilate when I walk into a library.  smile.gif

I almost picked up that book, but I was worried I'd throw my back out.  cwy.gif

Sounds like a good one to check out though.  Where's my crane...

"Unsolved Mysteries" (not affilated with the show) by Colin Wilson is a really interesting book. It not only deals with ghosts, but other aspects of the paranormal as well. It's a older book that I stumbled over at a used book store. smile.gif
