"Embarrassing Confessions Of A Marine Lieutenant", by Donny O'Malley. Hilarious and enlightening.

"The Midnight Assassin" it's the story of the serial killer in Austin - who was the first recorded serial killer in history... and who may have gone on to become Jack the Ripper. He started off murdering black servant girls and went on to murder society girls.

I think of her every time I warm up a Salisbury Steak, mashed potato and cherry cobbler dinner.

"Kwaidan", by Lafcadio Hearn.
The movie takes a few of the stories and makes them a great film (even better than the written ones), but there are more tales in the book.

"Hieroglyph Detective - How to decode the sacred language of the ancient Egyptians"

I'd love to see a PBS documentary made out of this, in the same vein as
"Cracking the Maya code" by NOVA

Scarlett's by Patricia cornwell

Do Tell said...

I bought her autobiography from a used books website quite some time ago and MUST get around to reading it. She was a FABULOUS woman and so modern and self-sufficient.

Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil. Perfect for your visit to Savannah.

"Easy Prey" by John Sandford. I love Sandford but that was easily the worst book I've read by him. I highly recommend "Certain Prey," "Mortal Prey," and "Hidden Prey." And most of his other books are at least entertaining.

Now reading "Forensics: What Bugs, Burns, Prints, DNA, and More Tell Us About Crime," by Val McDermid

I currently have four Stephen King books on the go. Couldn't name any of them, though.

Phyllis Whitweed said...

Why do you keep using your daughter? Even if you weren't easy to identify, it's just fucked up how many times you mention her being fucked up. Since it's not hard to see who you are, she should sue you.

Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline

Snakes said...

Yes, I read that book. So good.

david said...

Hmmm...?
How to respond to Phyllis Whitweed?

BTW: I appreciate the 19 thumbs down. Glad to see there are others out there that take mental illness seriously.

And, yes Phyllis, I am easy to find.
But, I never, ever add any link to my daughter from any social media.
So, she's pretty well hidden -- I think.

With that said, I will keep mentioning or responding to mental illness items simply because it is an outlet to release tension that her condition brings on.

Oh, well.

No need to linger on Phyllis. One day she will come around and understand.

Have a good day, everyone.

The Secret History of Twin Peaks. soooooooooooooo good!

Actually finished reading "The Spy" (Paulo Coelho). Currently reading one of the "Inspector Singh" books.

Yesterday reached the part of the "My (Not So) Perfect Life" (Sophie Kinsella) where the very perfect character of the book named her male child Hal.

Okay.

Oh, nice!
