A fun read- interesting facts.
C. A. Hoyer
Growing up in Virginia, I never knew all the fascinating myths, legends and folklore that existed in this area as well as the real and unusual that this book explores.
B. Nicholls
I have lived in Virginia for 40 of my 48 years and I never knew that my state has so many oddities!

My husband and I have been reading Weird NJ for about five years now and have even taken a week-long trip to NJ to see some of the weirdness for ourselves, so we were excited when Weird Virginia was published. I really liked the book, but wished there was more stuff from Northern Virginia included, and less stuff from Washington DC. Every time we turned a page there was something about Capitol Hill or Adams Morgan. DC IS NOT VIRGINIA!!!! Maybe Virginia by itself is just not weird enough **sigh**.

So far, I'm quite enjoying this book. Having lived in the area all of my life, it's interesting to find out about odd things quite literally in your back yard that you knew nothing about.

I am sad to report however, that the area knows as "Midgetville" in Vienna, VA has (in the last ~6 months) in fact been bulldozed and turned into new homes.

This is a fun book. It did not have a couple of things I was looking for, but it DID have many things I hadn't thought about in Virginia.
I ordered the book to give to my son in college for Christmas as a laugh, but I ended up reading almost the whole thing myself! I am going to order another copy to give as yet another gift for someone else.

This was a great book that taught many new things about Virginia that I didn't know. Many of the stories are funny and weird, very true to the title.

Gave this as a gift for someone moving. They thought it was a hoot. Couldn't believe how detailed it was.

This is a wonderful, funny book about nothing and everything. Being Virginia born and bred, so much of this content is familiar and interesting. A great book for the coffee table.
