In traditional belief and fiction, a ghost (sometimes known as a spectre (British English) or specter (American English), phantom, apparition or spook) is the soul or spirit of a dead person or animal that can appear, in visible form or other manifestation, to the living.
“ The people you love become ghosts inside of you, and like this you keep them alive. ”
“ I woke up as the sun was reddening; and that was the one distinct time in my life, the strangest moment of all, when I didn't know who I was - I was far away from home, haunted and tired with travel, in a cheap hotel room I'd never seen, hearing the hiss of steam outside, and the creak of the old wood of the hotel, and footsteps upstairs, and all the sad sounds, and I looked at the cracked high ceiling and really didn't know who I was for about fifteen strange seconds. I wasn't scared; I was jus ...more ”

[close] This book club is ONLY for books that are WRITTEN VERY WELL and have a GREAT STORY LINE. We ask that each member shelve at least 2 exceptional books that they've read but may shelve as many as they want. I spend a lot of time trying to find those EXCEPTIONAL books and have to wade through many poorly written books to find them. If you have this same problem then join our group and add to our group bookshelf ONLY the books you believe are EXCEPTIONAL. This group can encompass any genre of book, fiction or non fiction. As long as you believe that it is a book someone MUST read before they die. This group is not about getting a lot of members, it's about getting a lot of great books shelved on our bookshelf. That way when your feeling in a reading slump, you can come to this group and find an exceptional book listed on our bookshelf that you know will be written well and have a great story line to it. If you put a book on our bookshelf, please create a shelf for it so other people can easily pick out a book from the particular genre they like. Note to author's: You are all more than welcome to join our group but please do not shelve your own books. You probably wrote a great book but let others say its great. Please only shelve the books (other than yours) that you think are exceptional books.

[close] For those who like roleplaying, reading, and the paranormal world of Lockwood & Co, in this roleplaying group you take the role of agents fighting the ghosts that are London, and all of England's, greatest problem. Only the youth can see, hear, or otherwise sense ghosts, adults only feel a slight chill at the ghosts presence, or swell up and die at the touch. Through your courage and Talent, you keep London safe, and allow the ordinary adults to go about their normal (ish) lives. Its not all fun and congratulations though, the problem is steadily getting worse, and as every good agent knows, fighting ghosts is dangerous and deadly. Whether as a teenage agent or an adult supervisor, the ghost fighting business is fraught with peril, and if you fail, well, its one more ghost for your companions to fight. Join us in fighting the deadliest problem the world has yet to face, in the wonderful world of Lockwood & Co.
