Book Sales

This past month I have went to two giant book sales. Luckily I live in a county with several public libraries. I am forever grateful for this. The two sales I went to were the Lititz Public Library sale and the Manheim Public Library Sale. lititzlibrarymanheimlib

These book sales were different for me. This time I went with a mission. My sister, Wendy, is a giant fan of Nora Roberts. So finding her a book she hasn’t read of Nora’s is fairly difficult. When I went to the book sales this year, Wendy asked me to find every J.D. Robb book I could find. Those of you who aren’t big book fans, J.D. Robb is a pen name for Nora Roberts. She created the “In Death..” series. I was so excited to find so many used books that were on my list. Over all I was able to find 18 books of the series. Sadly there is 53 or 54 books in the series, so we’re no where near completed with the collection. Wendy and I both have a running list of these books so we can mark them off as we find them! The best part of all of this? One of the books is a signed copy! What a find! You’ll see I also found a recipe book at the sale as well.

Book Review: Shane Dawson It Gets Worse

As summer draws to an end, I’d like to introduce you to one of my favorite books of the summer. The book is Shane Dawson’s “It Gets Worse.”

This is Shane’s second book. His first book “I Hate Myselfie” did very well when released and achieved:New York Times Bestseller,  Publishers Weekly Bestseller , Los Angeles Times Bestseller , Wall Street Journal Bestseller. Just to name a few.

I know you’re all thinking, “this book is for teenagers and not for adults.” Well think again. Shane Dawson is a huge Youtuber with over 7 million followers on one of his channels. That’s more people then I can even comprehend. Shane’s humor is on the adult side of things. So if you don’t like inappropriate/Rated R language  then this might not be the book for you.

Enough with the author, this book is hilariously funny. So funny I felt that the stories may have been made up because I couldn’t stop laughing. If you’re looking to that chapter just open the book. Shane puts his life experiences out there and adds a humorous twist to them despite how rough they were to live through. There are a few heartfelt chapters that give this person some depth so you realize he’s not totally crazy. My personal favorite is “Chub Rub.” I’m sure you can grasp the humor even by the name.

Overall I loved this book. It’s a great book by a youtuber that shows that they have more talent than making videos. Below I have linked Shane’s youtube channels and you guys let me know what biographies that you’ve read that you’ve enjoyed!
