Silent Spring | Rachel Carson
post image

Rachel Carson was a pioneer in the discovery of the negative effects of pesticides‘ use for insect control. Particularly DDT. #creepycrawlies #hallowreads

Hooked_on_books One of my favorites. I really respect Carson. 2y
DivineDiana @Hooked_on_books I am in awe of her intelligence and bravery! 2y
monalyisha Can totally see the appeal of that advertisement, though. 😱And it's so poetic, to boot! 😂 2y
DivineDiana @monalyisha Didn‘t even notice the poetry! 👍🏻😂 2y

Just the thought of IT gives me the #creepycrawlies! I'd never be able to either read It or watch It because if I did I'd never sleep again! 🤡🎃

robinb Me too! I remember starting to watch the original miniseries in 1990 and the first time I saw the clown in the sewer....off it went. 🤣🙄😳😔 2y

Soubhiville He sure is! Those boots in the background! Are they real? I would wear them everyday! 2y
GypsyKat @Soubhiville They're a candle holder, there's a big Yankee candle nestled inside them. 😊🕸🕷 2y

llwheeler This book sounds creepy 2y
Andrea4 @llwheeler I'm suuuuuuper enjoying it and so far not terribly creepy except maybe for this kid with too much suicidal/homicidal intention for my liking... 2y

How to Eat Fried Worms | Thomas Rockwell
post image

Insects and worms and spiders are all #creepycrawlies to me. I've actually never read this book, though I remember it was popular when I was a kid. #hallowreads

[DELETED] 3803335244 My son liked this book. 2y
Librarybelle @ForeverNerdy I remember my brother reading this for a school book report. He liked it too! 2y
[DELETED] 3803335244 I don't like to genderize books but this definitely feels like more of a boy book. Lol 😂 2y

I would normally never post about anything not book related but this is too perfect. I teach a legal entrepreneurship class for aspiring food businesses, and today one of our students brought in cricket carrot cake cupcakes made with cricket flour! #creepycrawlies #hallowreads @JoeStalksBeck @Tiffy_Reads

rachel_mbc How were they?! 2y
PandaPanda @rachel_mbc not bad! He uses like 20% cricket flour so you can't really taste it but it makes them a bit softer. 2y
BooksForYears If you‘re looking for a bookish connection - cricket flour features in Robin Sloan‘s 2y

Bostonmomx2 Just....why? 😧 2y
PandaPanda @BooksForYears oh! That's exciting I'm getting that in my #botm this month!! 2y
PandaPanda @Bostonmomx2 apparently it's extremely good for you and more sustainable. I'm probably not going to make it part of my regular diet though 😜 2y
rubyslippersreads Are those real crickets on the cupcakes? 😱 2y
PandaPanda @rubyslippersreads those are pecans but he did tell me they would be whole crickets in the future! 🤤 2y
rachel_mbc @PandaPanda I've heard that insects are a good source of protein. I'd probably do better with flour in baked goods than identifiable bugs. 😂 2y
PandaPanda @rachel_mbc totally! I think the only way I ate it was knowing there wouldn't be any surprise legs or anything!! 2y
rachel_mbc @PandaPanda Yes! I was imagining an unpleasant crunch. 2y
