    1. I love reading about US oddities and this was a lot of fun. I especially liked the section about a little known area in California called ZZYZX. Whenever we travel I-15 from Southern CA to Nevada we pass an exit called ZZYZX (pronounced "zeye-zix") Road and I've always wondered at the origin of the name. My curiosity was further piqued by Michael Connelly's using this area as his murder location in THE NARROWS. Turns out the little town was the dream of a health guru (with wacky cures, natch) wh [...]

    2. I love anything that deals with travel, so of course I loved it. These Authors are the best at writing about this topic. Fun and entertaining. I have pretty much read almost the entire series.

    3. Weird U.S. Review The book Weird U.S by Mark Moran and Mark Sceurman is a bunch of short stories about strange towns across the U.S. This book was interesting because it all happened in real life. Most of the towns in the book have haunted houses and buildings. Each town has a different story to tell. Many of the stories told have a lot of horror and terror to them. Some stories can happen anywhere even in the neighborhood you live in. The authors did a good job constructing the stories because [...]

    4. I bought this as a companion book to the first and I expected the stories to resemble the first: scary. I was a bit disappointed that there weren't as many ghost/monster stories but then I got lured in by the stories of everyday people whose quirky hobbies became obsessions. Weird and humble roadside attractions, grandiose cemetery markers, and urban legends created by ordinary people rule the book. In a way, the book could be seen as inspirational. We can be more than we are!I'd recommend this [...]

    5. Another interesting and intriguing installment in the Weird collection. I like the way the editors provide information on various topics and histories instead of limiting the book to just one (ghosts, monsters, etc) like so many others do. This method provides a more well-rounded introduction to the weirdness of the region.

    6. THis reads more like a GUiness Book of World Records or Ripley's Believe it or Not than a travel guide. If you are looking for Kitschy, this is it; if you want addresses and hours for the attractions,you'll have to rely on word of mouth.

    7. This book would be a wonderful guide for planning a vacation off the beaten path. There are many interesting and artistic things in this country that I now want to see. Any trip planned using this book is sure to be remembered!

    8. I love this book, because it shows me all kinds of weird things across the country, and when I travel I can keep an eye out for them.

    9. A brilliant epic read sure to change the face of literature. Especially the articles on Kay's Cross and Gilgal Gardens.

    10. This is another book of offbeat graves, tales, legends and people across the United States. It is okay to hear about some of the local oddball legends and such across the US.

    11. This was on the shelf at my cousin's place. I love reading about legends, oddness and mysteries. I wish we had these books for Canada. What fun facts.

    12. like the first "weird us" book, i just didn't find this one to be as interesting as the two state specific ones i read. this is totally because of me though and not the books, i think.
