day 12: horror/ghost story

I don't do horror stories. I seldom watch scary movies. But, after a lot of thought, I realized that there was one ghost story that I had read recently: The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud. A wonderfully touching supernatural story about guilt, love, loyalty and, ultimately, forgiveness of self. Don't be turned away (if it would be the sort of thing that would turn you away) by the recent movie adaptation starring a young Hollywood heartthrob. The story is haunting (see what I did there?) and worth reading. And, hey, that movie is pretty darn good, too.
