In honor of Houdini.... searching bargain Kindle books

The Snitch, Houdini and Me - Humorous Tales of Death-defying Childhood MisadventureThanks to Google's ever changing logos, I knew it was Houdini's birthday, so I was looking for something fun to share in honor of the celebrated magician. As I was looking, I came across this humorous tale of growing up in the 70s... The Snitch, Houdini and Me - Humorous Tales of Death-defying Childhood Misadventure - apparently nothing to do with Houdini but with 5 stars and only $2.99, I couldn't resist sharing.

Product Description

"Go Out and Play and Don't Come Home until it's Dark."

"Growing up in the 70's wasn't easy. No internet or smartphones, video games or HDTV -- nothing but time to kill and the endless potential of a summer day. Only parental threats and a newly-developed sense of right and wrong could steer Johnny Virgil and his two younger brothers away from trouble...or directly into it.

Join Johnny on this hilarious and irreverent romp through his childhood as he recounts the stories that made him what he is today - an unimportant cog in a vast, corporate financial services machine. But he wasn't always this way, and this book is proof.

Booby traps, severed deer legs, runaway bulldozers, young love and pilfered beer -- all this and more, brought to life by Johnny's sometimes twisted, sometimes touching but always hilarious tales of suburban childhood.

If you have kids of your own, these are the stories you don't want them to read -- unless you enjoy spending countless hours in the emergency room saying things like, "I don't know how he got it stuck in there, just get it out." "
