    The book "Do away with August"

    I am hoping that one of the many WS out there can find out about the book "Do away with August". I have searched and searched with no luck. I am curious to see what this book is about and does it have any relevance to this case in any way, shape or form. TIA

    I don't think it does - I searched on this the other day, sorry, I don't have any links offhand and I am about to call it a night. It is a book of essays by a man who was a columnist for a paper in TN. He is deceased and there is a public library named for him. I found one of his essays from the book and it was good, about an older woman who wrote children's stories.






    All kinds of hugs!

    Ironic or not - Caylee's birth month is August. Now is that creepy or what?

    even google books has no preview or anything, it looks like old boring junk.

    I really do think being is prison is horrible. I know many think it is too kind for certain crimes but I cant think of much worse. maybe they used this book cause it was old and dusty and unused but ick, what if the whole prison collection is junk like this, I think I would go mad.

    I would guess, from KC's viewpoint anyhow, that a book called Do Away With August could only mean about ONE thing...that was the month "that child" was born who has brought me to this place and I wish that month did not even exist! I mean, geez louise! Why would she even reference a book of that title, knowing her own daughter was born in that same month. It is almost as tasteless or maybe even moreso than the rotting monkeys "joke" she received...

    ABC provided $200,000.00 to
    Casey Anthonys defense!
    The MURDERED should not be USED to pay for the MURDERERS DEFENSE!

    American Tragedy: The defense of Casey Anthony.

    Juror No. 11 somehow made the journey from Casey is the one on trial to George may be a murderer, based on how George acted on the stand? 3 years of evidence against Casey and he throws George under the bus. Makes sense?
    What evidence indicated that George might be a murderer? Anyone?
    Weren't they to ONLY consider EVIDENCE?
    This NOT GUILTY verdict throws Caylee right back into the swamp she decomposed in. Thanks to this "impartial" jury.

    I agree, I think this is Casey's "clever" (in her mind) way of having a private joke that validates her superiority above everyone else. Kind of like the "Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzales" connection with the remains being found near two homes owned by a combination of those names. It doesn't surprise me in the least that she chose that book. It's definitely her pattern.

    On another note, I was reading Marinade Dave's Blog (awesome) and wound up on Discovery Channels website where there is MIND-BLOWING detailed timeline by Day here:

    http://investigation.discovery.com/b...e_anthony.html

    I found an interesting article by a Serial Killer Profler who said (back in 2008) that Casy may "turn to religion"... how accurate THAT was! I can't find the same article now (read it last night) but it's somewhere on that site.

    this could be like the "big trouble comes in small packages" shirt caylee was found in..something for KC's sick amusement..

    I think this is the link you're looking for.

    Criminal Profiler Says Casey Anthony is "Punishing Everyone"

    http://blogs.discovery.com/criminal_...er-says-c.html

    "Look for her to turn to religion and either attempt to or speak of fleeing. When she gets to that point, she is most likely to talk about what really happened."
    This is an interesting thought, but it's pretty clear IMO that KC has not actually "turned to religion" so much as she's just personality mirroring RA so as to ingratiate herself. But would the proposed RV or Costa Rica trips count as "speaking of fleeing"?

    according to my googling @ both google.com and google.co.uk, the only book with a title containing "do away with august" is the one with let's.


    (yes I have to use both, the results are frequently different )

    On 6pm WFTV news they were talking about the book and showed a pic of it. I will post a link when I see one.

    Thanks

    MojoRisin- Yep! Thats the story....thanks for posting the link.

    I agree that she's mirroring Robyn with all the religious talk and Yes I agree that she's talking about fleeing too... wow that profiler is GOOD!

    Poor Casey, she thinks she's so smart and such a 'celebrity'... little does she know the jokes on her and she'll (hopefully) never see the light of day again, much less Costa Rica.

    Oh! Random thought . . . the book I put this note in is actually pretty good. It’s filled with old Southern humor. I honestly laughed throughout most of it.
    So that fit's with "Lets do away with August"

    Adding a few of her other references re: books and letters


    Hey! I did get the note you left the other day. I didn't get your first one, I don't think :-( Hopefully you got the one I left yesterday. I think it may be a good idea to use a new book.
    ...And when Shannon is here, we might as well play it safe and give her the book(s).
    Well, since the book went missing, I'll try and write you what I already had. We may have to rely on Shannon and every couple of days. Whatever works. I'm going for now.

    Lots of inmates turn to religon. That is almost like saying the sky is going to be blue tomorrow. I'm not finding that to be an epiphany of any kind. It's totally in the profile of someone incarcarated. I do find the title of the book to be interesting, it's the first thing I though of upon learning of the title!
