So another Wednesday with Long and Short Reviews !
So there are books with titles that just tickle me in a interesting way that either I bought them or laughed awkwardly as I put it back on the shelf.. Like what? But there are a bunch whom would gasp at – although I do not care. Its fun!
‘Go the F**k to Sleep‘ by Adam Mansbach
I know I probably have thought this a million times from my step daughter to now my tiny. Although last week tiny had her four month check up – GUURRL she went the F***K to sleep for the longest time and only woke up for snuggles, food and she pooped. Talk about adorable!
Go the F*** to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate, and radically honest, California Book Award-winning author Adam Mansbach’s verses perfectly capture the familiar–and unspoken–tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night. In the process, they open up a conversation about parenting, granting us permission to admit our frustrations, and laugh at their absurdity.
With illustrations by Ricardo Cortes, Go the F*** to Sleep is beautiful, subversive, and pants-wettingly funny–a book for parents new, old, and expectant. You probably should not read it to your children.
Seriously, Just Go to Sleep, a children’s book inspired by Go the F*** to Sleep and appropriate for kids of all ages, is also available, as well as Seriously, You Have to Eat for finicky ones everywhere!
The Zen of Farting by Reepah Gud Wan
All of us want to have the breathtaking relief that comes with farting and what better way than a monk and a enjoying read? One of my favorite books and this just reminds me I need to read it again!
In 1993, a Taiwanese fisherman opened a chest that had been in his family for centuries. Inside, he found a manuscript which may be as significant as the Dead Sea scrolls—a manuscript which will revolutionize our thinking about the origins of Zen. Written on a rice paper scroll, the manuscript records the teachings of the founder of Zen, the Master Reepah Gud Wan. It makes it quite clear that Reepah, a legitimate teacher of Buddhism, was frustrated by the inability of his students to grasp the abstract concepts of the Buddha. In desperation, he decided to play a joke on them. He invented the Zen of Farting, confident that even the densest pupil would realize that he was making a joke and laugh at his excessive seriousness—not to mention his farts.
The joke went over like a stale air biscuit. Soon, the Master had thousands of students eager to learn this brave new spiritual teaching, the Zen of Farting. Thus was Zen born, not of heaven, but of the ‘ethereal child of earth.’
‘Still Stripping After 25 Years‘ by Eleanor Burns
This is one of those gems I found for a Christmas present for my late grandma – Yeah she used to love to quilt and she loved the humor the title gave. She still had it when she passed and I’m sure its there for me to take when I gather my belongings she left for me. A sweet memory of a silly book about quilting. This lady left her sewing machine, serger and all for me – now I just have to find the time to travel 11 hours to go get it!
