Another mention for Dogtown by Elyssa East

Last year around this time, I picked Dogtown to read as part of the R.I.P challenge. I wanted to throw something new in the mix and this story of a spooky New England Ghost town and the murder that happened there, seemed a perfect choice.

Well, it's now out in paperback and it has also been awarded the 2010 L.L Winship/ PEN New England Award for Nonfiction. Pretty exciting I think.

If you are looking for a different kind of ghost story this Halloween I would recommend it again! Here's my review from last year.

Also, at the bookstore I work at we are featured in our local news morning TV show. Every month or so, our manager goes on and talks about the new and cool books coming out that month. This month's theme is Spooky reads. I suggested this one, in addition to others I can't remember now. Hopefully it will bring it a little more attention!

Happy Reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!

This sounds good Michelle - I am looking at something a little spooky going into the week of Halloween. :)
