"You will find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view" Obi-Wan once told Luke Skywalker, who was devastated that he had been lied to about his father's fate. This new collection of short stories set in that galaxy far, far away explores other events in the Star Wars universe, both large and small. Many of the authors featured in this hefty collection have never before published Star Wars stories, so each new tale is a breath of fresh air, even for fans who have read everything in the ever-expanding universe. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

Notorious NHL bad boy Sean Avery was such a complete jerk on the ice that the NHL had to create new rules just to keep him in check. No pun intended. After retiring from the game, he found he had quite the story to tell, and knowing he'd never be back in the game, decided to tell-all. Ice Capades breaks open the wild life of the NHL in the way that "Ball Four" did for baseball decades ago. A must have for all sports fans! ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

Rhett and Link are two of the funniest guys you've probably never heard of. They host the daily YouTube show Good Mythical Morning, the podcast Ear Biscuits, have appeared on Jimmy Fallon, and created the viral "NOPE! Chuck Testa!" local taxidermy commercial.
Amidst all the hijinx, there's also a very powerful tale of staying true to yourself, and a heartwarming story of two guys who have been attached at the hip since grade school making it against all odds.
The Book of Mythicality is a cross between a coffee table book, media companion, an activity book and a memoir. That is to say, there's something for everyone in here.
I read this book along with my 8 year old, and we were both laughing out loud the whole way through. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

Some people might say that the Duplass Brothers are a little weird. That they're a little TOO close. That they have seemed to fail upwards.

They'd probably agree with you.This is a super-fun, breezy memoir by the movie-making brothers behind films such as Safety Not Guaranteed.While there is a bit of Hollywood name dropping here and there, it's mostly a coming of age tale, told by brothers who obviously have a deep love for others, a connection so strong it sometimes created a bubble around them.

I read this whole thing in an afternoon, and I smiled the entire time. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

I love the Gaines clan. From their irresistible show "Fixer Upper" to their growing Magnolia empire, this reality-show couple is one of the few tv celebs that seem like actual people. This new release is perfect for readers who enjoyed their previous book

I love the Gaines clan. From their irresistible show "Fixer Upper" to their growing Magnolia empire, this reality-show couple is one of the few tv celebs that seem like actual people. This new release is perfect for readers who enjoyed their previous book The Magnolia Story, this time delving more into Chip Gaines' background, upbringing and the lessons he's learned along the way. While he might be a goof on TV, it's easy to see this guy has a good head on his shoulders, and is a very smart businessman at the end of the day. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll
