I’ll still be late in reading as I’m still up to my eyeballs (now tearing) with these edits and then it’s spring break.
Sad to say World Book Day has bad memories for me. They tried to copy the UK model here (as far as I know it latest 3 or 4 years then failed). I took part twice. The first year I had a copy of something by Stephen King to give out (the idea being to help promote literacy) NO ONE would let me give them away. I was turned down by every library and school in the tri-county area. Finally the job service people let me join their festivities that happened to be that weekend. I gave away none. People wouldn’t take a book. The next year I teamed up with the remedial reading classes on my campus (I’m in Appalachia and @ 45% of my university are functionally illiterate) They had to take them but when the instructor went to quiz them on the book (the first in the Percy Jackson series) none of them had read it. I gave up after that. Sigh.
Now on to the snippet! I’m continuing with These Haunted Hills Brendan and Josh are now inside the hotel and have gone inside a room where Brendan was getting EMF readings.
“Can you ever hear them in real time?” he asked, knowing that sometimes – at least on TV – the ghosts could be heard only on recording.
“Yes, sometimes. That’ll freak you out the first time.” Josh cocked his head to the side. “Or every time.”
“I’m not sure how I’ll handle it,” Brendan kept his ‘probably not well’ to himself. He was beginning to rethink this whole ghost hunting thing. He was bored now but if something did happen his whole manhood would probably take an embarrassing hit.
