I hope you are all doing well and not gaining too much weight during the holiday season (unless, of course, you want to be gaining a lot of weight during the holiday season). I am excited to go visit family in Chicago and Boston in late December.
Enjoy the books. I have been reading like a madman to try to reach my annual quota of books (that’s for me to know; translation – I am not telling you how many books I try to read each year). Doug Dorsey just sent me his father’s short book One Man, and I read the whole thing in an evening. I really enjoyed Playing the Moldovans at Tennis by Tony Hawks (not the skateboarder; this Tony Hawks makes insane bets while drunk at pubs, and the resulting adventures are hilarious). Finally, I’ve been madly flipping the pages of scripts by Barry Levinson, Preston Sturges and Cameron Crowe.
Anyhow, enjoy this month’s book selections below. I hope you are all reading some wonderful books. Make sure to tell me all about them. If you're an author or a publisher and would like to send me review copies of your book(s), please send them to the address listed for authors and publishers.
Have a wonderful December, and enjoy your books!
