I got this book when I was around ten years old. Trust me, that was a looooong time ago. I and my sisters loved this book so much. The first half was full of ghost stories I was scared of reading about. The second is full of stories about mysteries, coincidences, conspiracy theories, etc. that my ten-year old self could not help but read about. The fact that this book survived a flood or two and moving from one home to another is testament to how it has always had a place of honor amongst all the books I have been collecting all through the years.
