I've finished "Haunted Montana: A Ghost Hunter's Guide To Haunted Places You Can Visit - If You Dare!" by Karen Stevens. An interesting book by a reference librarian who does ghost hunting with her friends. In each chapter she describes the history of the places they visit, the phenomena, and whether it's high, moderate or low and then discusses her and her friends experiences and stories told to her by others about the various places.

I used to spend many summers and spring breaks in Montana, mostly in a very tiny town a couple of hours by car from Helena (the capital), but I don't think I've ever visited any of the places discussed in the books at least not that I can remember.

I like it, but I'm not sure if you would like it. I mean its interesting enough, and I am enjoying it, but I dunno how you would feel.

I got it from Amazon vine.

So did I. I've already finished it and posted a review there. Kasthu and I were pretty much in agreement this time :) ;)

The typos were brutal.

I've finished "Dishing Hollywood: The Real Scoop on Tinseltown's Most Notorious Scandals" by Laurie Jacobson. Besides scandals it has recipes for favourite meals, drinks, and desserts of stars or in some cases last meals.
