So now Jodi Arias has an online book club. I guess we should not be surprised. She tweets from jail. One of the Bee Gees is writing music about her case and she continues to sell art through a website run by a friend.
On August 5, Jodi posted a tweet about getting an “early start to her book club” on JodisPage.com thanks to @HeinzFrick
@HeinzFrick provided this description of him or herself on twitter: “Computer Repair service, Linux, UNIX, MySql, Taking Digital Pics with my Canon 5D MK II”
On the website, “Jodi’s book club” is divided into four sections including fiction, nonfiction, magazines, and books to inmates.
She says “I have read hundreds of books, please be patient as the process of adding them to the site is time consuming, thank you.”
She is currently reading Edgar Cayce on the Akashic Records sent to her by someone named Ron Gilmore.
She had previously read the book Under The Banner Of Heaven By John Krakauer and left this review:
“This is an unbelievably true story of religious fanaticism taken horribly too far. I typically do not read books with this type of subject matter because some of it is deeply disturbing. Also, the Mormon Church might frown upon my reading this because it casts the church’s early history in a less than pristine light. However, I found it very educational and in an unexpected way, I was endeared to Joseph Smith more than before reading it in spite of the book’s focus on his failures and shortcomings. It showed he was a flawed human being. Only Jesus was perfect, Right? The author also clearly delineates the LDS Church and the splinter groups NOT associated with it that practice polygamy. On a side note: I crossed paths once with some bona fide FLDS polygamists in the Grand Canyon of all places. They looked plucked directly from the 19th century.” Jodi A. Arias.
Additional book reviews have also been posted.
Seabiscuit by John Krakauer: “I have to admit, I thought this book was going to be a little on the boring side, but it wasn’t! I really enjoyed it. I found myself wishing I could travel back in time and have the opportunity to meet the real life characters, especially Seabiscuit himself.” Jodi A. Arias
Worker in the Light by George R. Norry: “The Coast to Coast AM host’s book was a little more light weight in it’s exploration of paranormal topics than I was hoping, but I just love George Noory (He’s WAY better than his predecessor, Art Bell)! The book is co-authored by William J. Birnes, by the way.” Jodi A. Arias
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee: “I just finished ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’, which I managed to avoid reading in HS. I understand now why it’s a classic. It was a good read. This author, now elderly and nearly blind and deaf, was conned out of her royalties for a period, but won them back in a recent legal battle. Good for her! There is so much quotable material in this book. A few that stuck out to me: ‘The one place a man ought to get a square deal is in a courtroom, be he any color of the rainbow, but people have a way of carrying their resentment right into the jury box.’(Atticus Finch) and, ‘It’s never an insult to be called what somebody thinks is a bad name. It just shows you how poor that person is, it doesn’t hurt you.’ (Atticus Finch). I cried three times reading this book.” Jodi A. Arias.”
The Twilight Series Book :1 Twilight by Stephanie Meyer: “I read these all in 2010 & 2011 and loved them. Their religious books, so it was interesting to note that the author, who is LDS, seamlessly weaves LDS themes throughout the saga (eternal life, eternal marriage, eternal families, ect.). I’ve heard only complaints about the movies, but I would love to watch them just for the eye candy of a beautiful cast and beautiful cinematography”. Jodi A. Arias”
It’s surprising that no one has formally attempted to block her ability to maintain an online presence.
On the day of the verdict, the Alexander family said that they would be filing a wrongful death suit against Jodi Arias.
Perhaps if they win their wrongful death suit (and thanks to “Son of Sam” laws), they may be able to stop her from personally profiting from her art work but they probably can’t not stop her from continuing to have an online presence.
