"Eating people is wrong"

I like the fact that even before I read a single page, I immediately learned something from that book.

True, but you could potentially have to fight an internal conflict if you had already read "How to Raise Your I.Q. by Eating Gifted Children". Especially if you are coming up on exams or something. Guess reading order could prove to be key here.

I was in tears of laughter with some of these. You look at some of them and ask yourself: what were they thinking?

I have the missionary position on my kindle.  Actually a really interesting and very controversial look at a woman who many consider a saint.

Having scrolled down further I think I need the fancy coffin book. My partner is a funeral casket wholesaler. If he made fancy caskets instead of the boring (very nice ones) he might get a raise! :o

If you really want to laugh you should check out the amazon reviews for 'How to Avoid Huge Ships' from the list. They are brilliant.

Still, must be quite a good seller, he got a second edition out of it.

By far some of my favorite reviews on Amazon.

I actually got "Everything I Want to Do is Illegal" out of the library.
It's about the U.S. Federal rules that constrain small organic farm practices.
They are presumably for public health purposes, but many are just out of date and others are used by agribusiness to control markets.

I learned only that much, and did not read any more  8). I paid $5 in library fines when I forgot to return the book. :'(
I could probably have paid 99 cents on Amazon plus $3.95 shipping and come out ahead.
But then I'd have had to get rid of the the darn thing to make room for my next 99 cent find.
