A paranormal investigator (ghost hunter) brings you a collection of true ghost stories. Many people still don't believe in ghosts or spirits, but believing in spirits and ghosts is getting to be a bit more mainstream, and not regarded as so "nonsensical" any more. Kathleen Rothenberger has filled the pages of 'Read With the Lights On' with many ghostly visitations that have happened either to her, or her friends. Prepare to be scared out of your wits.

Waste of money. Not scary. I paid $2.99 for this e-book, and it was a complete waste of money. The book is barely 27 pages! It's basically the author minimally describing places she and others have gone to, to ghost hunt. There is barely any narrative of the atmosphere of the supposedly haunted place, very little description of what it even physically looks like. The stories are formulaic and go like this: author goes to a place that is supposedly haunted, author sees a ghost, author gets into a snarky exchange with other mediums who aren't as "skilled" as she is in seeing things. That's it. It's NOT scary, it's not even interesting. Read with the lights on? Yeah, so you don't fall asleep. Cannot recommend. It's the most boring, self-absorbed book about ghost hunting that I have ever read.
How many of you enjoy ghost stories? I know I do (waving my hand)! Why else would we read all these thrillers about ghosts who are revengeful, vindictive, pranksters, miserable, etc.? But is there any truth behind the trappings of a good novel? In fact, many of us just love the paranormal and those things that spook us, go knock in the night. Author Kathleen Rothenberger KNOWS there are ghosts out there and in her first book, recently published, to tells us all. Here is a book I found informative, in that yes, there really are ghosts, for want of a better word, surrounding us. Some people feel them, some do not. Kathleen Rothenberger, a first-time author, has worked among authors for many years as editor and proofreader of fictional work. There's another side of this lady, however. Her book, Read With The Lights On, is her direct experiences, or those of people she knows well, with spirits. Can she make a believer out of you? The book is factual, almost like a journal. It is not fictional, therefore doesn’t read like one. Author Rothenberger shares short stories, laid out in a simple direct manner with actual dialogue taking place. Anyone who really is interested in ‘the other side’, would enjoy reading this and getting the facts. I did. I understand the author is planning on writing another book in the series. What will she reveal next? If you wish to read more about what the author says about spirits, pop over to an interview she recently gave at Booktalk with Eileen. She has fascinating answers!
