August Read of the Month

After debating for ten days I finally decided on a book for my August Read of the Month.  I actually ordered two books yesterday and thanks to my Amazon Prime membership they will be here early on Thursday.  I ordered Sh*t My Dad Says by Justin Halpern and Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People That Cook by Anthony Bourdain.  Both books look very good.  I have read previous works by Bourdain and I love his program No Reservations on the Travel Chanel. 

Halpern's book is based upon his Twitter feed.  A new sitcom will premier this fall on CBS based upon the Twitter feed.  There is some furor over the title of the program as the Parents Television Council is not pleased with the title of the program and has asked sponsors to boycott.  Of course all this means is even more people will watch the sitcom.  I love "Parent Groups" that try to do my job as a parent, thanks so much "Parents Television Council" do you mind coming over and helping with the laundry as well?

I will probably start with Halpern title.  It looks like it will be a quick, entertaining read.  I may even create a Twitter account to check out his feed.  I know the Bourdain book will be great.  If you love travel and food, you should check out No Reservations on the Travel Channel.  Detroit was featured in a great "Rust Belt" episode last season.  Hope everyone is enjoying their own August read!
