August Read, Finished in Three Days

Well, I was able to finish Sh*t My Dad Says in three days.  It was entertaining and amusing, however I must warn you, it is filled with vulgar language (as you could not tell that from the title).  If that is the kind of thing that you find offensive, you may want to avoid this title.  It was actually a nice piece about the author's experiences growing up with his father.  I am a big fan of father/son relationships so this made the book entertaining.  This book was a very quick and entertaining read.  I plan to move onto Anthony Bourdain's Medium Raw next.  I should be able to squeeze two books in this month, since my first read was so short.

In other book news, while browsing through books at Target, something I find myself doing every time I pop into that store, I noticed a new book my Nelson DeMilleThe Lion looks very good, and I may have to pick it up in September.  However, I also like to pick out a book from the Carlson Library to start each school year.  There are a few I would like to try out as I head back to work.  I also have to think about our Book of the Month Club at Carlson and see which title we will read for September.

  1. How come no one comments? Are you praying on this?

  2. I get a few comments, not sure what you mean by if I am "praying on this?"

  3. Hi,

    I found your blog through the News Herald website. Have you read A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again by David Foster Wallace? That's one of the smartest, funniest books I've ever read.

    Best,

  5. Oh, good! I'll look forward to hearing what you think! My two favorite essays are "Getting Away From Already Being Pretty Much Away From it All," where he goes to the IL state fair, and "A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again," where he goes on a Carribean cruise. I've read that essay dozens of times, and each time I laugh so hard I cry.

    Good luck with your new school year!

    Best,
    Meg
