Book List (part 1)

As many know, we here at Random_Speak continue to lead the blogosphere in informing the public on art, politics, medicine, sports, and all that science stuff. Of course, literature is no exception, so we are now posting the first in a series of book suggestions for interested readers. Each of these titles is currently available online.


1.Oozing Medical Poems for Kids by Nick Krasner and Bryn Binyard-- We haven't actually read this book yet, but our top reviewers are forced to recommend it highly, based solely on the title. It's probably one of the most valuable gifts you can give your child.

2. How to Avoid Huge Ships by John Trimmer. Generally, the best way to avoid huge ships is to never travel by sea in the first place. However, this book is a necessity for those who cannot avoid this dangerous activity. It is rumored that the author will soon have additional guides in a useful series: How to Avoid Sticking Forks in Electric Sockets and How to Avoid Running with Chainsaws.

3. Highlights in the History of Concrete by C.C. Stanley -- While the history of concrete may not be as popular as the history of wet paint or the history of thumbtacks, it still remains a fascinating subject of study. Here, the armchair historian is treated to a comprehensive introduction to concrete's historical highlights.

4. The Biggest Secret by David Icke-- this truly mind-blowing book reveals the hidden evil of the real-life "matrix": our world is secretly run by extraterrestrial shape-shifting reptiles from the constellation Draco. Members of this reptile class include George W. Bush, Hilary Clinton and Tony Blair, so it's recommended that you pick up a copy right away.

5. Reusing Old Graves by Douglas Davies and Alastair Shaw -- this highly informative "how-to" guide takes all the guesswork out of reusing that old cemetary plot you just have lying around. Recommended for the "do-it-yourself" types.

6. Planet Earth 2000 AD: Will Mankind Survive? by Hal Lindsey-- This thrilling book is truly an anxious cliff-hanger for readers who love to sit on the edge of their seats in suspense. I can't wait to see how it ends.

7. The Gourmet Gator Cookbook. Recipes for people who know their place in the food chain! by Lindy Stevens -- Typically, we wouldn't focus on a cookbook, but this one is clearly a work of genius. Highly recommended for native Floridians or those who wish to move here.

8. How to Be Pope: What to Do and Where to Go Once You're in the Vatican by Piers Marchant -- for those enterprising Catholics who are seriously interested in applying for the Papacy, this handy little reference book explains everything from the papal wave to choosing a new name.

9. Joy of Chickens by Dennis Nolan -- seriously, the title says it all.

10. Oral Sadism and the Vegetarian Personality by Glenn Ellenbogen -- truly an important contribution to contemporary psychiatric research, this book delves seriously into the subject of one of the most disturbed personality types known to man: the vegetarian.

You there at Randon_Speak do a great service to the blogogoshpere (hic!) for sho'. I'm gonna jump right on these here books.

I wish I had read 'How To Avoid Ships' fifty years ago.

And up to now I never once gave a thought to 'Oral Sadism'. Gee, thanks a lot.

Remind me to loan you one of Mr. Kosh's books. It's about how the center of the earth is really empty and is used as a base for alien space craft or something like that. I think he bought it because it was funny, at least I hope so.
