The prescience of this book (published in 2004) is a bit creepy and frightening.

I saw @mdhughes72 recent review and knew I had to get this. Found it on eBay for $4.50 + free shipping. 👌🏻👌🏻 #blameitonlitsy #bookmail #bookhaul

Reviewsbylola Read the blurb and all I can say is what . . . the . . . fuck. 2y
emilyhaldi Wow. I second @Reviewsbylola 😳 2y
Kaye I remember that happening. It was crazy. Devil worship, sacrificing babies, molesting kids... just a few years in a row of hearing this stuff from all over. I thought it was all a bunch of hogwash. They had people interview the kids who actually directly asked them if this man did this to you, etc. We sometimes have a spell of insanity in the country , then it quiets down a bit. (edited) 2y

StacksNShelves @Reviewsbylola seriously! ☹️ 2y
AmyG I remember a case in NJ. Horrible. 2y
Pruzy Wow, sounds like Facebook-style Fake News of the 1980s 2y
LisaJo I remember this happening at a daycare in California. The Los Angeles area where I lived at the time. When all was said and done it turned out that none of it was true, but by that time the owners of the daycare center had been villainized in the media, lost their business, and probably much of their livelihood. 2y
tournevis Ahhh, the memories.... Sheesh. 2y
Kristy_K I‘ve seen articles about this. Didn‘t know there was a book. Can‘t wait for your review! 2y
britt_brooke @Pruzy Exactly! 😱 2y
britt_brooke @mdhughes72 That‘s the damned truth! 2y
britt_brooke @Kaye @AmyG @LisaJo @tournevis @Kristy_K I really don‘t know very much about it, but I both look forward to, and dread, reading this craziness.. 2y
tournevis @britt_brooke When people remember the 80s with fondness, I think back to the nuclear scare, that and other moral panics, and so many others, and I wonder how. 2y
mdhughes72 This book was such a trip! Now I‘m on the hunt for the next read that will intrigue you @britt_brooke. One name check from you and my notifications lit up with follows and likes! What sorts of things should I be looking for? 2y
britt_brooke @mdhughes72 That makes me so happy!! Hmmm, let‘s see .... I‘ve been reading a lot of cult type books lately. I highly recommend The Road to Jonestown. The audio was particularly fantastic. 2y
britt_brooke @mdhughes72 Right now, I‘m listening to (edited) 2y
BarbaraBB That blurb... WTF?! 2y
britt_brooke @BarbaraBB I know!! Pure crazy. 2y
BestDogDad This sounds really good. I remember the Satanic Panic and Tipper Gore going after musicians back then, too. Backwards masking on LPs was indecipherable unless someone gave you a suggestion, just like the unintelligible garbled crap current day ghost hunters try to pass off as communications from the dead. 😂 2y
britt_brooke @JeffKoeppen 😆 The power of suggestion makes fools of people. 2y
BestDogDad @britt_brooke Exactly. Well said! 2y

RadicalReader @Tricia_Ann where did you encounter this incredible coffee cup?! 2y
Tricia_Ann @RadicalReader I found it on Etsy! I can‘t recall the shop but theres a lot of great hand thrown mugs available there. I think at least 50% of my mug collection has been purchased from an Etsy shop 😅 2y

• Mary Karr is the queen of sass. She reminds me of a meaner Scout Finch--pinging off her enemies from a chinaberry tree. I love reading about her childhood antics and trespasses. She did what she had to do in order to survive. I'm laughing with her and hurting for her in equal measure. I don't want to return this book to the library. •

vivastory Loved this memoir. 3y
Readage @vivastory I love it so much 😍 3y
ApoptyGina69 I just finished it this morning. Took me more than a month bc I had to keep setting it aside due to brutal content. My aunt recently met Mary Karr at the Literary Sala in San Miguel, MX and pointed me toward her work. 2y
Readage @ApoptyGina69 Wow, that's awesome 👏🏼 hope you enjoyed the memoir! She's written others! I haven't finished it yet because it's a library copy I've had to keep returning. 2y

#footnotegeek Not really about #DavidCopperfield, more about the fact there was an actual neurologist named Lord Brain!!! How does that happen??? Did he just feel with a name like that he had no choice? Reminds me of a friend who had a PE teacher named Jim Short ...life truly is #strangerthanfiction.

Ericmanciniwriter Lord Brain!! 3y

Larkken I had to reread to get "defective" out of that last sentence! 3y
