In Hi Bob!, American icon Bob Newhart gets together one-on-one with a handpicked cohort of luminaries in the world of entertainment, whom he happens to be friends with. Bob gets deep with each performer about their aspirations, their careers, how they got started, and how they grew to be where they are today. They make TV shows, movies, or albums, but they all like telling stories.

Are you sitting in the middle seat of an airplane? Are the people to your right and left not the legendary Bob Newheart and a rotating selection of almost as legendary comedians? If yes, and then subsequently no, than get this book to feel like you're in the room with a bunch of great, award winning joke smiths listening to them share stories about comedy without going to that weird, depressed place so many comedy memoirs do.

This classic of American literature, a dramatic autobiography of the early life of an American slave, was first published in 1845, when its author had just achieved his freedom. It is a story that shocked the world with its first-hand account of the horrors of slavery. The book was an incredible success. It sold over 30,000 copies and was an international best seller.

One of the big strengths of Night Vale is the rapid fire nature and the way they play with story telling, but in novel form it wears thin kind d of fast. You don't explore the Night Vale world as broadly as you get to see it through the eyes of two citizens. By the halfway mark they bring it together and the ending works surprisingly well, but some of the Night Vale jokes around lazy storytelling that make me smile in the show just feel like lazy story telling here. I liked it, I recommend it, but it's not the show.

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.
