    1. I was hoping for more creep out stories. I did find out info on a trio of monuments alongside the I5 corridor I've always wondered aboutbut nothing that really intrigued me.

    2. I got this thinking it might be a fun way to tour the state on a vacation coming up. Turns out it's mostly ghost stories with a smattering of other weirdness that mostly isn't tourable. But it was fun none-the-less. The authors are ghost hunters and wackiness investigators first and writers second, so some of the writing got on my nerves (as well as the overemphasis on ghosts), but it was a fun read and great to keep on the coffee table for a while.

    3. I was excited about reading this book, but we are just not that into ghost hunts and houses of mystery. I might have found this book totally awesome and intriguing at age 9, but I had questionable taste back then.

    4. It's an amusing read, but really not terribly useful if you're hoping to find less run-of-the-mill places to visit (most entries have prominent warnings about private property and not trespassing).

    5. I've got to get directions to a couple of these spots -- I'm especially interested in the anti-gravity hill around Prosser.

    6. I think "Weird" is the perfect name for this book. They claim it is a travel guide but the majority of the entries are stories about local legends, fabled people (JZ Knight, Butch Cassidy, D.B. Cooper) or creatures like Bigfoot and Thunderbird. There are a lot of silly stories about UFO's , a tire eating hole in the ground, lots of haunting's, ghosts, and your typical drunk teenager in 1962 "saw something go bump in the night" in a foggy cemetery stories. Numerous places hypothetically you could [...]

    7. Weird Washington book review 5 stars - finished 6/2/09Eat local, act local, shop local. The localmotion craze is taking over every facet of our lives these days. In 2009, my little family made a plan to travel local. We love to see the sights, visit new places and try exciting things we've never imagined before. However, the carbon footprint of airline travel rests heavily on my soul & I admittedly don't prioritize giving my money to carbon-offsetting programs. So, this year, we're committed [...]

    8. This was a simple little book that at times was fun and interesting. I am not particularly interested in stories of UFOs or ghosts, but I do know there are people who are. This is a good book for them, so for what it is, it is good, perhaps four stars. It gets three stars from me though because I thought the pictures and figures could have used captions so we could know what we're viewing. Also, sometimes, the pictures did not match what was being described with effort within the text, and I wan [...]

    9. Road trip? I now have a summer of cruising around Washington in my plans. I can hardly wait to see those places i have seen before, visit the places i have just dreamed about, and finding the ones i just found out about. The authors have peaked my interest to the maximum. Next stop maps and plotting the first trip. Can hardly wait to share with the world how awesome Washington is. A fabulous read.

    10. I was skeptical that this book would be worthwhile but I really enjoyed it. I think it offers a lot of fun ideas for when you are on a long road trip or even need a cheap quick weekend adventure.

    11. Half this book is very interesting- half of this book is just odd and unbelievable. I did learn that a road not even 1/2 a mile from me is supposedly haunted though!

    12. It's a weird book, that I checked out on a whim and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Apparently there are "weird" books for other states and one for the US. I recommend, checking them out.

    13. The best way to get to know a new state of residence is to read about it in books like this one. Now I've got a whole lists of places I want to visit. Very fun and informative!

    14. Loved this book and the little tidbit stories about all things odd in Washington. Would love to get my hands on the Weird Oregon one now.

    15. I picked this book up at a second hand store for $.89 so I couldn't pass it up. It tells a bunch of interesting stories and facts about Washington state. Some i'd heard of and some I hadn't.

    16. I found some really cool places to visit using this book, such a cool guide that I even bought a copy for a friend.

    17. this book was good- it gave a lot of fun places to visit, and stories I didn't know about right around here!
