Teaser Tuesday: Tomes of Terror by Mark Leslie

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of  Should Be Reading.
Anyone can participate. just do the following.
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t  give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! 

 This week's teaser is from Tomes of  Terror - Haunted Bookstores and Libraries by Mark Leslie. This is a cool book of actual hauntings of bookstores and libraries as reported by people who work(ed) there as well as sometimes those who visited there.

Today's teaser comes from the Thornhill Village Library in Thornhill, Ontario.
Staff also got used to the daily routine that the ghost seemed to have. Every evening they would overhear noises coming from upstairs, the same footfall pattern as though someone were walking around preparing for bed.
(Kindle 14%)
 Even though the building serves as a library now, it has served as other things over the years including a private residence.

To read more about the ghosts that inhabit this library and others possibly at a location near you (there are locations both in Canada and the U.S.), pick up a copy of Tomes of Terror. A review is coming after I finish reading my copy, but so far it's interesting.

What book are you reading this week? What's your teaser? Leave us a taste or a link in the comments below. Thanks for coming by!


  1. That's really interesting, and a cool focus for these kinds of stories. Not sure if I could handle it since I'm not so good with scary stories, but I'm also kind of intrigued. Cool pick, this week I'm doing Banned Books.

    1. Good choices for teasers: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian and The Bridge to Terabithia. Thanks for sharing!

  2. So cool. I'd like to visit some of them. Thanks for sharing. This would be a good one for a Halloween read this October.
    Here is my TT - http://fuonlyknew.com/2014/09/23/teaser-tuesdays-82-leaves-by-michael-baron/

    1. A perfect fall read! Glad you're enjoying it. Looking forward to the review.
