The Ghosts of Virginia
I was reading one of these last night and thought it might make a pretty good post...
These are some great books from my collection about the many ghosts and legends of Virginia. I am guessing that Virginia is very haunted since there are at least twelve volumes of this book that I know of (maybe more), with each one being around 400 pages long. Sadly, I have never personally seen or heard anything that I thought couldn't be explained away as something else... oh well, maybe one of these days I'll have an encounter. Anyone who lives in or around Virginia may find them interesting because of the places that are mentioned from all over the state that they may have been to or heard about. I like to read the stories about places near me or places that I may be travelling to, and think it is really cool when I get to see the actual house or place that was mentioned in the book. I especially enjoy reading about the stories from the 1700's and the 1800's that are in these books, for some reason they are always my favorites.
I have found these in Barnes and Noble stores in Virginia, but doubt they would be in any of the stores outside Virginia, and I've also found them on eBay and Amazon if anyone is interested in them.
