Klosterman Is Coming! (or 85% Of A Good Idea)

Anxiously, I am waiting to read Chuck Klosterman's latest book, Killing Yourself to Live : 85% of a True Story. On our great Biloxi trip, I read Chuck Klosterman's Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs to Paige. I enjoyed reading to her and she enjoyed being read to. A local blogger had mentioned the book, so I picked it up not knowing anything about it. Turns out he's phenomenal. A great story teller and insanely funny. Paige and I laughed for the better part of the road trip.

And now, I find out from the Scene that he's reading and signing at Davis-Kidd on Wednesday, August 3. Do yourselves a favor and get there if you can. And if you see me, tell me you love my blog. I'll be the guy who is celebrating his 3rd wedding anniversary by taking his wife to a bookstore.

Cool! I'll have to add that book to our list of books to get now. My husband loves reading to me, and aside from Harry Potter and David Sedaris, not a lot of books work well when read aloud, so we are always looking for something new to read together!

Excellent book! Now I'm going to have to pick up his first book.

Seemingly, I always work backwards: 2nd book first, 1st second. Ha! Did the same thing Malcolm Gladwell. Great author as well!

Stop for stopping by, by the way. Lovin' your blog (I'll be back) and your template. ;)
