    Story
    If you could sum up Fifty Shades of Fifty Shades of Grey in three words, what would they be?

    Insightful, sympathetic, funny


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fifty Shades of Fifty Shades of Grey?

    The helicopter ride with the ex-Vietnam veteran on Ben's last attempt to romance his wife


    Which character – as performed by Gillian Vance – was your favorite?

    Ben Weaver, the main character, was very funny, and the writing was superb. It was a little odd to have a woman narrate a man's story, but, that being said, it was well-done. I'm new to audiobooks so maybe this is a common thing.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Desperately seeking love at all costs


    Any additional comments?

    A well-written story which appears to truly convey the inner workings of a man's mind when he's in love and wants to stay in love.

    What happens when you try 50 Shades in the REAL world? When accountant Ben Weaver awakens after an erotic dream, he encounters a wife who is unwilling, uninterested, and who once again has a headache. The unworldly but focused Ben decides he will do anything to rekindle his sex life, including imitating the erotic techniques of billionaire Christian Grey from the Fifty Shades series.

    A guy walks into a bar.From here, the story could take many turns. A guy walks into a bar and meets the love of his life. A guy walks into a bar and finds no one else is there. When this guy is David Sedaris, the possibilities are endless, but the result is always the same: he will both delight you with twists of humour and intelligence and leave you deeply moved. In Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, Sedaris remembers his father's dinnertime attire (shirtsleeves and underpants), his first colonoscopy (remarkably pleasant), and the time he considered buying the skeleton of a murdered Pygmy. The common thread? Sedaris masterfully turns each episode into a love story: how it feels to be in a relationship where one loves and is loved over many years, what it means to be part of a family, and how it's possible, through all of life's absurdities, to accept oneself. With Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, David Sedaris shows once again why he has been called 'A humorist par excellence, he can make Woody Allen appear ham-tongued, Oscar Wilde a drag' (Observer).

    Beloved movie and television stars Bud Abbott and Lou Costello made their name on the radio, and the resulting long-running radio show preserved a rich vaudeville tradition and sensational comedy sketches. The sarcasm of Abbott's stern straight man is the perfect comedic compliment to the muffled screams of Costello's blustery "baaaad boy."

    The Fran Lebowitz Reader brings together in one volume, with a new preface, two best sellers, Metropolitan Life and Social Studies, by an "important humorist in the classic tradition" (The New York Times Book Review) who is "the natural successor to Dorothy Parker" (British Vogue). In "elegant, finely honed prose" (The Washington Post Book World), Lebowitz limns the vicissitudes of contemporary urban life - its fads, trends, crazes, morals, and fashions. By turns ironic, facetious, deadpan, sarcastic, wry, wisecracking, and waggish, she is always wickedly entertaining.

    Yes, George Carlin is here with more of what he did better than any other comic: uproarious observations, laser-targeted crankiness, linguistic legerdemain, and inspired weirdness. ("If the shoe fits, get another just like it." "When you sneeze, all the numbers in your head go up by one.") Napalm & Silly Putty is just what his fans have been waiting for—another generous helping of notions, nonsense, assertions, assumptions, mockery, merriment, silliness, sarcasm, and, to be sure, plenty of disturbing references and toxic alienation.

    Hawthorne presents several ideas which form the very core of the conservative critique: that man's sinfulness is an immutable part of his character; that rationalists, reformers, and progressives delude themselves with their utopian notions of the perfectibility of man; that in their delusion they do incalculable damage to the culture, while leaving human nature untouched; and that, no matter the "progress" they make, evil lurks, waiting to rear its ugly head and shatter their dreams.

    Today fewer people wear watches than ever. The reason may be that cell phones have a digital clock so there seems little need to wear a timepiece on your arm or in your pocket. Perhaps Mark Twain would have wished that he had a cell phone because his watch was costing him much more than an early cell phone upgrade. If you’ve ever had something repaired multiple times you will identify with the humorous struggle Twain relates in the short story "My Watch".

    America 2013: All the madness, insanity and absurdity we witness every day in politics, journalism and personal life began in the laboratories of humanities departments in academia, when English professors, based upon their ability to read, decided they were experts in EVERYTHING and unleashed the virus of Political Correctness on an unsuspecting nation. Wielding the unholy trinity of race, class and gender, academics seized power not only in academia but in journalism and politics as well, creating our current dystopia, The Kingdom Of Absurdities.
