Dyslexics think the book is entitled, ‘Going Rouge’ is by the very dry Sahara Plain.
Billy Collins, former poet laureate and, really, the sexiest and smartest poet alive, has a new, bullet proof book out entitled, “Ballistics” and prefers his ballistics on wry. Try to remember to read his very memorable poem, Forgetfulness.
The annual New Year’s resolution to de-clutter and get very Feng Shui usually involves purging, donating and organizing books.”The Room for Debate Blog” at the New York Times poses the question: What books could you purge, donate, or never be without? Good question.
When you get to that horse latitudes place in your life where you are forced to toss those scintillating books from college: Mark’s Mechanical Engineering, Botany, Kafka, Camus, and Twain, just do it. Load all those books into multiple Trader Joe’s bags and donate them to the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library. However, some books you have to keep. One holiday book you must seek out and save, no matter what, is David Sedaris’ Santaland Diaries. Check out Sedaris reading aloud about Crumpet the Elf in Santaland. Do not do this while operating a car, as resulting raucous laughter may impair your driving.
