Book Review: Tomes of Terror: Haunted Bookstores and Libraries by 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.

  1. I highly recommend “Mr. Penumbra’s Twenty-four Hour Bookstore”, by Robin Sloan. It is a novel, which deals with the interplay between books and the supernatural. I read it last year, while on the ferry to Alaska, then donated it to the Ferry Purser’s Library. It is a very sweet little story.
