Spring Releases!

The magical mind of David Sedaris will be releasing a new book of short stories, sure to split seams from laughing to hard!

From the unique perspective of David Sedaris comes a new book of essays taking his readers on a bizarre and stimulating world tour. From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, we learn about the absurdity and delight of a curious traveler's experiences. Whether railing against the habits of litterers in the English countryside or marveling over a disembodied human arm in a taxidermist's shop, Sedaris takes us on side-splitting adventures that are not to be forgotten. (Available April 23rd)

To enjoy the experience to the 10th degree, get your hands on the Book on CD where David reads his works.  Pretty amazing stuff.  To get a tidbit, listen to his 
"6-8 Black Men" below.

you're welcome.

If you're into Chick Lit (like I am) then you'll enjoy anything by Sophie Kinsella, best known for her series "Confessions of a Shopaholic".  Her new release Wedding Night (available April 26th) is sure to bring a smile to my face.

Lottie just knows that her boyfriend is going to propose during lunch at one of London’s fanciest restaurants. But when his big question involves a trip abroad, not a trip down the aisle, she’s completely crushed. So when Ben, an old flame, calls her out of the blue and reminds Lottie of their pact to get married if they were both still single at thirty, she jumps at the chance. No formal dates—just a quick march to the altar and a honeymoon on Ikonos, the sun-drenched Greek island where they first met years ago.

Their family and friends are horrified. Fliss, Lottie’s older sister, knows that Lottie can be impulsive—but surely this is her worst decision yet. And Ben’s colleague Lorcan fears that this hasty marriage will ruin his friend’s career. To keep Lottie and Ben from making a terrible mistake, Fliss concocts an elaborate scheme to sabotage their wedding night. As she and Lorcan jet off to Ikonos in pursuit, Lottie and Ben are in for a honeymoon to remember, for better . . . or worse.

This book too is available on audio formats! 
Great for commutes or long drives!
