    Growing a perfect moustache, grilling red meat, wooing a woman - who better to deliver this tutelage than the always charming, always manly Nick Offerman, best known as Parks and Recreation's Ron Swanson? Combining his trademark comic voice and very real expertise in woodworking - he runs his own woodshop - Paddle Your Own Canoe features tales from Offerman's childhood in small-town Minooka, Illinois, to his theater days in Chicago, beginnings as a carpenter/actor and the hilarious and magnificent seduction of his now-wife Megan Mullally.

    Jeremy Heere is your average high school dork. Day after day he stares at beautiful Christine, the girl he can never have, and dryly notes the small humiliations that come his way, until the day he is told about the "squip". A pill-sized supercomputer that you swallow, the squip is guaranteed to bring you whatever you most desire in life. By instructing him on everything from what to wear to how to talk and walk, the squip transforms Jeremy from a supergeek to one of the most popular guys in class.

    The book is about being true to oneself and trying so hard. That's why I would recommend this book.

    The other normals, it's about a like-able outcast who can't make with no idea things would change if they just remained cam and collective.

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    the book is intriguing from its first opening line to a satisfying climax with enough likeable characters to be rooted for even if you think they're not going to make it out alive. I would a friend should read. Stephen King is a true artist of making you sit back relax and enjoy what the hell is going on? Plus it rains body parts in the first chapter (spoiler alert)


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the idea of a town run by a corrupt official and the followers. Realistic terror and tension. Really made the hair stand on end.


    What does Raul Esparza bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like the way he brought the characters to life. Every detail of the voice of 25 or more was there. I could picture the faces of the characters as they talked and their action and reactions.


    If you could rename Under the Dome, what would you call it?

    One Nation, Under Dome

    Given the chance, 15-year-old Peregrine "Perry" Eckert would dedicate every waking moment to Creatures & Caverns, an epic role-playing game rich with magical creatures, spell casting, and deadly weapons. The world of C&C is where he feels most comfortable in his own skin. But that isn't happening - not if his parents have anything to do with it. Concerned their son lacks social skills, they ship him off to summer camp to become a man. Perry knows he's in for the worst summer of his life. Everything changes, however, when Perry gets to camp and stumbles into the World of the Other Normals.

    Palo Alto is the debut of a surprising and powerful new literary voice. Written with an immediate sense of place - claustrophobic and ominous - James Franco's collection traces the lives of an extended group of teenagers as they experiment with vices of all kinds, struggle with their families and one another, and succumb to self-destructive, often heartless nihilism.

    Two points.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    The death of Judd Foxman's father marks the first time that the entire Foxman family - including Judd's mother, brothers, and sister - have been together in years. Conspicuously absent: Judd's wife, Jen, whose 14-month affair with Judd's radio-shock-jock boss has recently become painfully public. Judd joins the rest of the Foxmans as they reluctantly submit to their patriarch's dying request: to spend the seven days following the funeral together.

    The most memorable moments are when Philip doesn't exactly situations too seriously. I'm a lot like that. I can relate because also the baby in my family.

    Never have but he reminds me of Steve Buscemi. Good reader captured the tension perfectly.


    If you could take any character from This Is Where I Leave You out to dinner, who would it be and why?
