That is it - an easy peasy competition that is open worldwide.

  1. I don't really have a favourite ghost. In fact I don't think I can even think of one. And I already subscribe to your blog...does that count?

  2. My favorite ghost is definitely the late, great Patrick Swayze in 'Ghost'.

    I'm already a follower. :)

  3. Hi Vivienne, don't enter me, Sweetie, I already read the book. I just want to say I couldn't put it down when I read it. Such nice giveaway! Good luck to all the entrants!

  4. You don't have to enter me for this book since I already own it, but I just wanted to say the ghosts in Harry Potter are lovely. :D

  5. Recently I read Ghosts by Paul Auster and think that was good.

    And no, dont enter me. I own this book.

  6. Lovely giveaway Vivienne... you didn't say your favourite ghostie ;)

    My favourite ghost in a film would have to be the Liam Neeson ghost in High Spirits *g* Phwoooargh! Or the Alan Rickman one in Truly Madly Deeply. Double Phwooooaaaar!

    My favourite ghost in a novel would probably be... Christine. Does she count?

  7. What a great giveaway, I'd like to enter this. :)

    My favourite ghost in a film would be the poltergeists in Poltergeist (is that too obvious? :P) - so scary! - or Patrick Swayze in Ghost (another obvious answer hehe).

    As for TV, I love Annie from Being Human. She's so great. :-D

    I'm already a follower too. :)

  10. I'd love to read this one Viv ~ please count me in.

    I'm already a follower and my favourite ghost from TV would have to be PS in Ghost and from a book, Riley (Ever's sister) in Evermore :-)

  11. I haven't read too many books with ghosts in it so I'm going with Teddyree and say Riley in Evermore too. :)

    I'm already a follower. :)


  12. Easy cheesy lemon squeezy? Well, I follow you through Google Reader (duh), but I can't think of a ghost. Crap! Hmmm....goes to search the woman in white count from Woman in White? Oh! Headless Nick from Harry Potter! That's his name, right? :)

  13. Oh Viv, may I be entered for this giveaway, please? I'm already a follower. :)


  14. Everyone else has such good answers. I would have never thought of Patrick Swayze in Ghost. Or even Casper. No, when I thought about the question originally, I thought of this really old television programme called 'Ghost Writer' where a bunch of kids solved mysteries with the help of this ghost.. Anyway.

  15. I would have to say Patrick Swayze from Ghosts

    thank you

  16. Your question is so interesting considering the recent death of Patreick Swayze. He is a favorite ghost of mine but I also got a kick out of Beetlejuice!

    Thank you for the easy peasy contest.

  17. No need to enter me, my TBR is taking over my
    My favorite ghosts would be Casper and Moaning Myrtle from the HP books :)

  18. Maybe I'm feeling a little nostalgic after what happened to Patrick Swayze but I am voting for him in 'Ghost'.

    I'm now a follower.


  19. Fav Ghost? It would be very difficult to mention one from books, but I love the Ghost in Casper :)

    Also the movie Ring? Scary.
