Let’s read something spooky, scary, or creepy to get us into the Halloween mood!

Here’s a list of books to get you thinking of nominations: https://www.goodreads.com/shelf/show/...

Sanniyus Suwita | 1 comments I am interested in reading the business/economics side of Halloween but haven't been able to find a good book. Not even a WSJ/NYT/Atlantic article.

Amy (amybf) | 129 comments I'm not a big fan of the scary and the spooky. But I heard about this one on a podcast and it sounded interesting, so I'll toss it in for nomination: The Lady from the Black Lagoon: Hollywood Monsters and the Lost Legacy of Milicent Patrick .

Jessica | 18 comments Definitely looking forward to October, because I love scary books! I'll throw in Infamous Lady: The True Story of Countess Erzsébet Báthory because I've always wanted to read a book on this legendary female Dracula. For something that might be a little less graphic, I'd also nominate Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife.


Barbara (The Bibliophage) (barbarathebibliophage) | 67 comments Ghostland: An American History in Haunted Places <— my suggestion!

And I will +1 for Lady from the Black Lagoon, Spook, and Empty Mansions.
