Never Threaten To Eat Your Co-Workers: Best of Blogs
My book is an anthology featuring some of the best blog writing on the Web today from my fellow bloggers.
Along with my co-editor Alan Graham and of course added inspiration from long-time collaborator/illustrator
John Burton, I spent a year reading through hundreds of blogs to get some great stories to entertain the masses.
it has something for everyone: bizarre adventures in retail, child star memories,
down and dirty journalistic tales of war and the kind of stories that
make you laugh so hard milk comes out your nose!
This book gives blog addicts like yourself the power to walk in the shoes of a TV star,
international journalist, criminal court lawyer, video sales clerk and a busy mom,
among others. MTV's The Real World's cast member Neil Forrester gives new meaning to the
phrase "Bite your tongue." Star Trek: The Next Generation actor Wil Wheaton gives his take
on the Hollywood system and fleeting stardom. Web designer Heather B. Hamilton finds herself in the
unemployment line after publishing work stories in her blog, Dooce.com.
Humorist Choire Sicha gives advice on broken hearts and timeshares.
Illustrator Mark Frauenfelder throws out his cell phone and uproots his family
from Los Angeles to the sandy beaches of Rarotonga. Plus tales of creepy video store customers,
online love lies, Iraqi politics, office pranks gone wrong, jury duty, a childhood meeting
with Darth Vader and so much more.

The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity
If you've ever had writer's block, or just felt like an uncreative dolt,
than you should read Julia Cameron's guidebook on reclaiming your
Muse. The Artist's Way is one of the best books you can ever read to
get you motivated to write, paint, play music, sculpt, dance or do
whatever other creative talent that is lurking inside yourself right
now. Some of the text is a tad New Agey, but if you stick to writing
three pages every morning and try some of the exercises in the book,
you might find yourself oozing with creative and crafty ideas in no

"The book is about the construction of gender in

really interesting. Lots of theory, but amazingly
