Reading books is an important way to grow around a particular subject matter. These books are non-fiction. In other words they are not about ghost stories, they cover the reality behind the myths and uncover parts of the unknown. Most books on ghosts can be found in your local library under 133.1 under the Dewey Decimal System. Some of these books are no longer in print or you may have to special order from your local major bookstore. I have found many of these in used book stores as well as on Amazon.com. This is by no means a complete list of what is out there, it is only a sample .The following list of books include books I have read and a few that I have written. Many of the authors shown here have other books relevant to the subject. I also recommend reading scientific journals, including parapsychology / psychical research.
