Wigfield: The Can-Do Town That Just May Not by Amy Sedaris and Stephen Colbert and Paul Dinello
Wigfield: The Can-Do Town That Just May Not

misskp, January 30, 2007

I LOVE 'Strangers with Candy,' so when I saw this book, I had to read it. Unfortunately it falls short of the usual dry humor that those three had together, and it seems like a far cry from the cult show. Not that it isn't funny, just not worth the day you may spend reading it, unfortunately.

The New Fuck You: Adventures in Lesbian Reading (Semiotext(e) Native Agent Series) by Eileen Myles
The New Fuck You: Adventures in Lesbian Reading (Semiotext(e) Native Agent Series)

misskp, January 15, 2007

This book is a must read for everybody. Adults and teenagers alike will appreciate these short stories; from the trials and tribulations of coming out, rape, young love and just being alive, each story is emotive, sometimes provocative, as seen through the eyes of lesbians.

Bunny Yeagers Pin-Up Girls of the 1950s by Bunny (pht) Yeager
Bunny Yeagers Pin-Up Girls of the 1950s

misskp, January 7, 2007

While the cover looks a little on the "orange" side, all of the actual pin-up photographs inside bunny yeager's book are beautifully iconic, perfectly reminiscent of a more innocent time, and all around "cute."
Makes me want to put on a little one-piece and romp on the beach!

Calavera Abecedario: A Day Of The Dead Alphabet Book
Calavera Abecedario: A Day Of The Dead Alphabet Book

misskp, January 3, 2007

Such a cute book, and a great way to learn your spanish alphabet! The drawings are great and this book is perfect for kids, but a great addition to anyone's day of the dead collection. Each word has a couple sentences explaining it complete with iconic drawings of skeletons in Mexican garb or participating in Mexican traditions. This is an adorable history lesson!

This is an absolutely ADORABLE book. I collect Day of the Dead stuff, and this is a great part of my collection. This book helps you learn Spanish while brushing up on your Mexican history! The illustrations are cute and well-done, the book is well-written and definitely for any age!
