Bookshelf tour: Ghost stories and Mythlogy collection

this is not my bookshelf

since I'm not going to any used book sales anytime soon. I through to give a tour of my ghost stories and mythology collection.

The stuff on my shelf going left to right: An origami dragon that I made and you really can't see it but, my cat torn it up a bit. I don't know why. Next is a dry up flower I pick from my collages campus, a ginkgo leaf, a raven when you push a bottom it says nevermore, and behind that is a booklet with the poem the Raven in it. On top of my books is a bag of fairly stones. You has to look up a picture of them. They look just like crosses. 

Books left to right:
