If you're anything like me, you love to read - but things like housework, work-work, and life get in the way. Which is why I LOVE audiobooks, especially free audiobooks (my wallet appreciates the break!). And with Halloween right around the corner, I thought I'd share my latest YouTube obsession:
Classic Ghost Stories Podcast is just that - a podcast devoted to classic ghost and spooky stories, from Shirley Jackson to Bram Stoker and a whole host of short stories and spooky tales that I never would have found on my own. Tony Walker has a terrific British accent (gotta love that!) and a great reading voice - you'll be lulled into a false sense of security listening to him. And stay tuned after the stories are finished; often, he gives a little analysis or his own perspective on the story just read.
So if you're in the mood for spooky stories and you've got a bit of a drive or a long day of tasks in front of you, check this podcast out. It'll put you in the Halloween mood. Thus far, my top two videos are "The Haunting of Hill House" (above) and "The Birds" (below). Note of caution - do NOT listen to "The Birds" when you're driving alone through deserted countryside at night! (I tried it - it's a trip.)
