spooky tales

last week i shared my kids' favorite halloween and autumn books.  this week, i share mine.

i discovered weird us several years ago when i found the weird PA book in a local bookstore.  this series of books has anecdotes about urban legends and oddities found around the US.  i have a second weird US book (i think my dad still has it).  they're just fun to read.

i live on the cusp of coal country, so it's natural that i have a few books about that.  centralia isn't necessarily a ghost story, but it is a tragic one.  (the movie silent hill reminds me of it).  i found the pennsylvania books at barnes and noble in state college (they have a fairly decent local history section).  i got the little big book of chills and thrills many years ago - it's a nice volume of famous scary stories and poems and even tidbits about halloween and samhain.

enjoy these books curled up with a cuppa and a cozy afghan.
