The Book Corner

Okay, I’ll go first. BIB didn’t want to have a “Book Corner” on Above Level, so this category is the next best thing, and I have to say, I like the concept.

I’m always looking for the next book to read and thought that others out there might be too. I recently came across the funniest book that I have ever read. I read it about a year ago and couldn’t remember the author, so I really couldn’t share it with others (except for the person I gave it to, who lost it!) The book is Lamb,The Gospel According to Biff, Jesus’ Childhood Friend by Christopher Moore. It’s a great story about what Jesus was doing during the years between age 12 when he threw everyone out of the temple, and age 33 when he changed water into wine and jump-started his career. It pokes fun at all the major religions (including Buddhism and Tsaoism) in a totally believable way.

If anyone else has a book to share, just submit a comment here and we can have our own “Book Corner” within “Shout It Out!”

And just in case you’re thinking I like to see what I have written in print way too much, I have Posted what had started out as just a Comment, by request.

    Funny, funny book…like you, probably the funniest I have ever read. My husband told me they have it in a “leather-bound” looking version too. It certainly isn’t for everyone but I loved it.

    I would recommend “Sick Puppy” by Carl Haissen, although it isn’t for everyone either. It is a rather twisted, tongue-in-cheek look at Florida politics. I found it to be hilarious. I also read “Nature Girl” by him but didn’t like it as much.
