As each week goes by I often find myself stumbling across various news, social media posts, blogs, articles, books, and more in relation to the paranormal. Often some of these pass me by never to be seen again, which can be a shame as when I see them I know that I want to read more on them. However, it can often be the wrong time, there are other more pressing things to take care of. As we are often bombarded by lots of this such information on a daily basis, a lot is lost in the digital ether.
So, what I wanted to do with this regular post is attempt to gather some various pieces of information that others like me may be interested to read. I’ve broken this down into a few categories below for now, hopefully you’ll like it – would love to hear your thoughts on the matter?
John Cleese Looks to Take Unread Books to the Grave and Another KItchen Ghost
This week has been another really busy work week for me, so I’ve taken my eye of the paranormal ball – so to speak. However, I did notice that John Cleese wants to be buried with his unread books – to be fair there are a fair few of my books I wouldn’t mind being buried with myself. Also, another ghost in the kitchen has been caught on camera apparently. Granted I haven’t taken a detailed look at this case, but you do have to wonder if some of these ghosts visiting peoples kitchens, are just after a decent cuppa.

I often spend a lot of my time reading paranormal related blogs, books and articles. So, I figured this would be great to share with you all too. Blogs and online articles are often a great way to discover more on the paranormal and even challenge your own perception of some concepts. There will also likely be items from published journals and magazines too in the future – which of course will be limited to those with memberships to those organisations.

Although generally the idea of this post was to share some of what catches my eye in the paranormal field week to week. I thought it would be good to capture some of this stuff in one place. Makes it easier to find right?
However, there’s always going to be stuff I miss, so please feel free to send me items and I may include them too. It’s a good way to share a lot of what’s happening out there in the paranormal world.
