I picked up two books at the library today. I'm reading The Liars' Club, a memoir by Mary Karr with my online reading group friends. It's been on my list for a long time.
I also got the new book from The Daily Show With Jon Stewart called Earth (the book): A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race. It's sure to be entertaining -
The eagerly awaited new book from the Emmy-winning, Oscar-hosting, Daily Show-anchoring Jon Stewart--the man behind the megaseller America (The Book). Where do we come from? Who created us? Why are we here? These questions have puzzled us since the dawn of time, but when it became apparent to Jon Stewart and the writers of The Daily Show that the world was about to end, they embarked on a massive mission to write a book that summed up the human race: What we looked like; what we accomplished; our achievements in society, government, religion, science and culture -- all in a tome of approximately 304 pages with lots of color photos, graphs and charts.
I'll let you know what I think once I've gotten into these books. And may I just add - Libraries are to be cherished!! I love mine!
