I love movies and I am trying to translate that into reading. Humor, action, adventure....With an infant constantly attatched to me, audio books are my saving grace!

    Let's be honest - nobody has more fun than atheists. Don’t believe it? Well, consider this: For nonbelievers, every day you’re alive is a day to celebrate! And no one celebrates life to the fullest like Penn Jillette - the larger, louder half of legendary magic duo Penn & Teller - whose spectacularly witty and sharply observant essays in Every Day Is an Atheist Holiday! will entertain zealots and skeptics alike.

    If you could sum up Every Day is an Atheist Holiday! in three words, what would they be?

    Totally. Fu*****. Awesome.


    What did you like best about this story?

    You know how sometimes when an author writes a sequil to a series it just doesnt live up to how maazing the first book was? Well that is NOT the case here! Penn knocked it out of the park again and I was hanging on every word.

    Admit it. You want to BE William Shatner. This collection of rules, illustrated with stories from Bill’s illustrious life and career, will show you how Bill became WILLIAM SHATNER, larger than life and bigger than any role he ever played. Shatner Rules is your guide to becoming William Shatner. Or, more accurately, beautifully Shatneresque.

  • In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks...: And Other Complaints from an Angry Middle-Aged White Guy

    It's a sad and eerie harbinger of our times that the Oprah-watching, crystal-rubbing, Whole Foods-shopping moms and their whipped attorney husbands have taken the ability to reason away from the poor schlub who makes the Bloody Marys. What we used to settle with common sense or a fist, we now settle with hand sanitizer and lawyers. Adam Carolla has had enough of this insanity and he's here to help us get our collective balls back.

    This is a fun book.... Usually. Yes, I agree, every story cant be hilarious but sometimes he just gets on a tangents that sound very unpolished - like an angry rant that isnt even part of a comedy bit.... which is both good and bad. I'm a fan of the story and that it is narrated by Adam, he does a decent job. Overall, I think I would only recommend this to few certian people. Personally I liked about 75% of the book which in my opinion is enough to give it a great rating :)

    More of the wry, honest and often hilarious chronicles of Richard Hammond - TV presenter, adventurer, and general drawer of the Short Straw. Continuing where As You Do and Did I Just Say That? left off, this one focuses on just a few of the many hair-raising stunts, expeditions, and encounters experienced by Richard Hammond over the last eventful year.

    This book is filled with interesting little tales from Hammond. Each one funnier than the last. It very much helps that it it narrated by the Hamster, you get the full feel of his sarcasem and wit that may have been lost if read by someone else. A great light read/listen that is easy to pick up/put down whenever the mood strikes. Very witty, very Hammond.

    From the larger, louder half of the world-famous magic duo Penn & Teller comes a scathingly funny reinterpretation of The Ten Commandments. They are The Penn Commandments, and they reveal one outrageous and opinionated atheist’s experience in the world.

    What made the experience of listening to God, No! the most enjoyable?

    Other than the fact I share MANY (almost all) of Penn's beliefs, i think its such a great experience because the stories are amazingly funny and sometimes heart warming. You really get a sence of who Penn is and what makes him tick. He is a totally lovable guy who id love to meet in person and wish i could know in my personal life.

    Hearing Penn read his own book is fantastic. He gets so excited and you can feel the passion in his voice, the humor in his stories, the sadness when he talks about his mom, which you may not get by just reading the book alone.
