Napoleon's Privates: 2,500 Years of History Unzipped by Tony Perrottet
If you know me personally, then you know I love the dirty, outrageous and strange bits of history. It makes these grand old figures, royalty and rebellion leaders and presidents, seem more real, more human because they are no longer perfect. What ultimately drew me to this book (other than the $6 price tag) was that it featured a section on Victorian England, which is a time period of interest to me for an upcoming writing project.
America Again: Re-becoming the Greatness We Never Weren't by Stephen Colbert
Stephen Colbert (and John Stewart) are my BFFFs and I've been dying to get their books. However I can't afford to fork out $30 for a copy so when I found this one for seven dollars, I jumped on it faster than you could say "Colbert for President".
Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales by the Brothers Grimm
Ehem...I have a published novel that was originally based off of Cinderella--and not just the Disney version. I have this on Kindle but I felt that it was a wrong in the world that I did not have a hardback copy of this. I have righted it, finally, and am all the happier for doing so.
The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff
I borrowed this from my girlfriend Samantha, and I am carrying it around in my handbag to use as sort of a "waiting room book", as in whenever I just have a moment to read I can do so, and it doesn't take much concentration to pick up where I left off. It is basically a conversation between Winnie the Pooh and the author and it is adorbs.
The Man Who Walked Away by Maud Casey
HEYY I finally got approved for this on Netgalley and I'm so excited! I haven't been on Netgalley for weeks because I seriously CAN'T get anymore books to read, I'm already drowning. But I still had my fingers crossed for this one! Eek I'm so excited!
