Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Nature Calls (Uncle John's Bathroom Readers) by Bathroom Readers Hysterical Society
Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Nature Calls (Uncle John's Bathroom Readers)

B Steele, August 5, 2012

Filled with hundreds (thousands?) of irreverent facts, these bathroom readers cover every topic, I mean EVERYTHING, under the sun. Well researched, surprising, entertaining, and always a great anywhere, any time. This is just one of 30 - some editions. If you like tidbits, quibbles, factoids, odds and ends, quick reads, or basically being bombarded by endless information, get these books.

Cortes and Montezuma by Maurice Collis
Cortes and Montezuma

B Steele, August 5, 2012

Everyone knows the story: Cortes arrives in 16th century Mexico as the returned deity bent on exacting revenge for being thrown out centuries earlier. At least that is the high school version. Read Collis' harrowing account of the true story of astrological mysticism that allowed Cortes to unknowingly send Montezuma and how hundreds of thousands of followers to their destruction. Filled with quotes from journals of people actually present on both sides, this quick read is the most accurate account of this impossible adventure.

If you are tired of superheroes or are just trying something different than your basic novels...START HERE! Far and wide one of the most popular graphic novels in history. Smart.
