What are we reading next? Thank you for asking! We will be reading Jay Anson’s 1977 tale of a tormented family living in a house infested by a demonic force in The Amityville Horror. It is “based” on a “true” story. Will it be as un-scary as the movie? We can only hope!
Guyyyzzzz, Lauren is experiencing resurgent concussion symptoms and has to avoid extra screen time, so we are moving slower than we’d like. HOWEVER, the next episode has been recorded and is in post-production. We read My Favorite Murder‘s own Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark’s Stay Sexy and Don’t Get Murdered: The Definitive How-To Guide. This episode is on its way and we are looking into our next hate-read. STAY TUNED.
Guess what, Electric Book Machine fans? We’ve chosen our next hate-read and the winner is Phil Jackson’s Sacred Hoops: Spiritual Lessons of a Hardwood Warrior. We plan to be inspired by sports and meditation and… sports? We expect Michael Jordan anecdotes, borderline(?) racist insights, hardcore cultural appropriation, and a new way of looking at basketball or whatever. Is this a man’s Eat, Pray, Love? If we’re lucky! Stay tuned.
ICYMI, the next book we’re tackling is Jonathan W. White’s Midnight in America: Darkness, Sleep, and Dreams during the Civil War. It’s gonna be historical and dream interpretation-y and intriguing as all get-out. Join us and read along!
Ever wonder why women are so afraid of independence? (LOL, women) Have you ever wondered what somebody writing in the early Reagan era would have to say about it? Well, you’re in luck! Next up we’ll be reading Colette Dowling’s 1981 best seller (apparently) The Cinderella Complex: Women’s Hidden Fear of Independence. Has Isaac already finished it? Maybe. Does Lauren refuse to talk about it if it doesn’t somehow involve Gus Gus? Also maybe. Hit up your local pile of trash books from the ’80s and read along and find out in our next episode!
