Ramble: The Perfect Book for October

October is the perfect time for creepy, chilling, shivering stories. And a dear friend gave me the most perfect book. 

Men, Women and Ghosts by Amy Lowell. Published in 1914, Lowell wrote this book in half-poetry, half-prose. 

Lowell was famous during her time. She won the 1925 Pulitzer Prize for a collection of Poetry, and she was much revered for her work. 

I'm eager to read this collection. The book itself is a dusty little tome, smelling of old book shops and time. Worn edges and yellowed pages do not detract from the prose. 

I'm eager to curl up with this fine work - but I'm saving it for a dark and stormy night....
