Do you believe in spooky happenings?

I hope this isn't going to sound far-fetched for those sceptics amongst you but I cross my heart that this is really what happened.

You remember on Monday I was bemoaning the fact that I was struggling to read a book? Well, last night I started tidying up my book shelves. I moved a pile of books from the bedroom and onto the shelves and, as I turned around, two books fell off the shelf. One was a copy of Schott's Original Miscellany, which is really just a browsing book, and the other was a book called The Rebel Angels by Robertson Davies.

I can honestly say that I have never seen this latter book on my bookshelves before. Obviously it must have been there otherwise it couldn't have fallen off but I have absolutely no idea where it came from. Whilst I would struggle to name every book on the shelves, I thought I had a pretty good idea what was there, particularly as when I moved here 2 years ago there was a major clear-out of books and much soul-searching as to what would stay and what would go. This book was published in 1989 so it's not new and judging by its worn edges, it has been read before.

So I picked it up, started reading it.....and it's brilliant and I'm hooked.

Spooky or what?

  1. Does sound a bit spooky. I hate mysteries and like to get to the bottom of things-might it belong to he who has gone-just wondered?

  3. Could it have belonged to someone who has stayed with you? If not it's a bit spooky, but I want to hear of a real headless ghost wandering amongst the trees outside the cottage on a misty night!!

  4. It does sounds a bit spooky, but as this spooky happening seems to have helped you find the thing you recently lost ("ability to sit down with a book")it can only be a good spook!
