Rating: Liked it ♥♡
This is one of those collections of fun facts and interesting stories. Some are a few pages, some are just a paragraph or two. Some little known facts about some cases you may have heard of, The Mad Bomber, The Hatfields and McCoys are two I remember. The stories are grouped together by a common thread, “Stupid Criminals”, “Zany Cops”, “Escape Artists”, these are examples not actual headings. This is one of those books you can read a little at a time, because the stories are a page or two, and it is a lot of stories.
I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES.
I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes.
I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads..
I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet.
And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
