A to Z Blog Challenge 2018 – Letter I 2018 A to Z Challenge

A to Z Challenge for 2018.

***

Welcome to the 2018 edition of the A to Z Blogging Challenge!

All through the month of April, the challenge asks us to blog every day (except Sundays), and to go through the alphabet A to Z, connecting our posts to the letter of each day.

My idea for this time, my 5th to participate, is to showcase a book or two each day, and provide a tiny bit of information about them. These will not be a full book review, but just saying what it is about, and if I liked the book or not.

These books are mostly books that I already have on my shelves, and have read, or are on my to be read stacks. There will be a very few of them that I don’t already own, or have read.

I will also post a quote each day that has something to say about books, or reading.

Hope you enjoy, and maybe see a book or a few that you might want to read, too.

“In a Dark Place”, by Ray Garton, Al Snedeker, Carmen Snedeker, Ed Warren, and Lorraine Warren, is a true account of a haunting.

The Warrens, who are prominent demonologists, investigates the Snedekers claims of their house being haunted. What they found out was much worse.

Moving house is always stressful, but then the Snedeker’s teenage son came right out and said to his mother, “Mom, we have to leave this house. There’s something evil here.”

The family found out just how true that statement was. Over the next few months, they were subjected to emotional, mental, and physical attacks in that house.

The Warren’s have chronicled their story in this book.

“The Intruders”, by Pat Montandon, is the author’s true story of the experiences she had in her San Francisco house. From the time she moved in, until the time she left, two years later, she was bombarded by unexplained fires, thefts, a persistent chill throughout the house, and more, including the death of a close friend. Finally, she had psychic investigators, and an exorcist to come help. They concluded there were supernatural forces at work in the house.

This is maybe the first book I ever read on this subject. I checked it out of the library, many years ago, and kept on checking it out to read again. I did finally find a copy of it to buy.

Now, to something different.

“Into the Wild”, and “Into Thin Air”, are by the same author, Jon Krakauer.

“Into Thin Air” is the author’s own personal journey as he climbed Mt. Everest.

“Into the Wild”, is the story of Christopher McCandless, who walked out into the Alaskan wilderness to live alone.

Both of these books are so good. If you like stories of survival in the face of all odds, these will be remembered for a long time.

    • Thanks, Astrid! Into Thin Air is a good one, if you like to hear first hand about his adventure. There were some scary moments during his mountain climb, and there are photos in the book, too. 🙂

    • Yes, they both are really good. I do like true stories of people surviving all kinds of things. Makes me wonder if I could ever do the same. … I love the true horror type books, but even these both were almost too scary for me. 🙂

    • Thanks, Joey! I agree. I’d never do anything like the author, or the person he writes about did, but I’m glad he did, and in such an outstanding way. 🙂
