Feeling morbid? Maybe not spend an afternoon at The Museum of Death morbid, but take a stroll around the cemetery and read a couple of obituaries morbid? Then American Afterlife ($19) by Kate Sweeney is right up your alley; Sweeney explores the recent history of mourning in America, from hair craft to memorial tattoos. It's a light read considering the heavy subject matter - and it's a lot less creepy than rereading Helter Skelter.
Full disclosure: Outblush received a review copy of this book.
