Sounds like the sort of thing I'd read. Shame it's only on Kindle or else I may have got a copy.

I'm one of those book worshipping people. Kindles are the devil.

I've never looked back since getting a kindle. Still read real books but I read so much more because its so easy. See a book, download in seconds and get reading. Simple.

There are free books, some can be good, but a lot are a bit crap in my view...if you like classics you'll be in heaven though.. :wink: :lol:

What I've found of late are new(ish) authors giving away for free the first in a series they are writing obviously in the hope that you like it and look to buy the follow ups. I've come across some decent ones like this.

I'll have to take a look at that one...started Poltergeist people. Seems good so far - he gives a short intro to each case, and lets them speak in their own words from original transcripts/diaries.

Stil for 77p wasnt bad.

and I bet you're not tempted by the one above either?

I know I'm a bit anti-kindle but it does seem that the format allows a lot of dross to be published.

I'm struggling a bit with Poltergeist people too..

There is a lot of dross out there for the Kindle, but much of it is cheap enough, so at least it feels better when you realise the book you downloaded is a bit rubbish. What irks is them charging full wack for a more mainstream author ebook that costs next to nothing to publish and market. I've done it for a few, but will not pay more than a fiver and that is a rarity for me. :wink:

Dok,
As I keep saying prayers to who?
Who is going to protect me with prayer when i dont believe in religion?

I understand that Angie may want to say a prayer, but I'd say thats more in keeping with spiritualism.

So given we cannot prove the existence of ghosts, who exactly will protect me from the naughty nasty demonic ones?

It's bonkers Anth.

There's no proof of Ghosts, only belief. There's no proof of religion either, only belief. So why in order to be a 'Professional Team' do you need to use something that may well be fictional to 'protect' against something else that may well be fictional.
