I absolutely love this book. A collection of the best of the worst from the popular Instagram account of the same name. After all our childhood baseball cards ended up worthless, what better to do with them than to draw farts and boogers on the unsuspecting ballplayers?! ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

Perfect for anyone who has always wanted to make, but didn't know where to start.

An incredibly fun look at half-baked, abandoned, top secret, and off-the-wall ideas that have come to pass through the military and intelligence arms of the US and others. From using a cat as a listening device, to literally nuking the moon as a show of force, these stories are enough to make you question the "intelligence" part of our spy agencies. Quick, breezy reading, perfect for digesting a chapter or two at a time. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

Once again, Lucy Knisley delivers a heartfelt, funny, and honest look at life as only she can. Fans of Knisley have followed her journey through motherhood across social media for a few years now, and the antics of her little bundle of joy "Pal". In Kid Gloves, Knisely shows the heartbreak that followed a miscarriage, her journey through self doubt, and anxiety over her preparedness for it all. Anyone who has had children can relate to all of these moments, and the endless joy and love that having a child brings. I love this book. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll
