These Books Aren't All New??

Books are expensive. I tend to pick and review books that are both new & old. Many of these books you will be able to find on the shelves on your library as opposed to the front of your bookstore.

I believe that there are many hidden gems from years gone by & I enjoy highlighting those as well as today's best sellers.

Microthrills: True Stories From A Life Of Small Highs


Microthrills: True Stories From A Life Of Small Highs, by Wendy Spero

From the picture of the procreating ladybugs on the cover I thought his book of short stories would be fun & I was totally right.

The stories of her sex therapist mother and hairy funny grandfather are well written and hilarious. Some things I wouldn't have believed if there weren't pictures, really wait until you see her grandpa, you'll laugh out loud.

Perfect for beach or vacation because it's short stories, this book is for any lovers of David Sedaris, Laurie Notaro, or Jen Lancaster.
