The Haunted Bookshop

I found this book last week at a consignment shop.  Is it not perfect for Halloween?  Not only are the colors perfect but the title is also.  The original copyright date for this book was 1919.  The book I bought was printed in 1951.  I looked this title and author up on Amazon and you can still purchase this story today.  It must be a pretty good book to still be in print.  I can not wait to read it.
When your talking stories that are perfect for Halloween you can not leave out Edgar Allen Poe.  I ordered this book last year just because of its cover.  I put it on my mantel last year to decorate for the season.

Here is a picture of my mantel from last year.

I wanted to show you the inside of the book because the illustrations are spooky just like the stories.

The next book I bought at an antique mall a few years ago because I wanted some orange books to decorate with for Fall.  I added this book because of the black and orange.

This year I am just going to leave these books setting out on my coffee table.  I think I am well on my way to starting my own Haunted Bookshop.
