photoThis week, we get in the mood for summer with new suggestions from Michelle and my book corner. We also explore a new medical oddity: a sixty year-old stone baby and the 89 year-old, strong-willed lady in which it was found. Then we talk about ghost stories—just in time for your summer campfires.

  1. New Christopher Moore??? Yay! I’ll have to check those out. I think that an easy way to explain him is that his stuff is like what would happen if Dave Barry was a goth. I liked Lamb, but I think my favorite of his is A Dirty Job.

    I have Packing for Mars downloaded to read, but I wasn’t really impressed with Bonk. It was kind of boring, in my opinion, but I’ve liked her in every interview I’ve seen of her, so I’m going to give this one a shot.

    Creepy stories!! I’ve always gone more for the creepy stories than the gory stories, so I didn’t do the RL Stine books, but I did read the crap out of the Joan Lowery Nixon books when I was a tween. That actually may explain a lot about me now…hmmm. Awkward personal realization!!!!
