So your ukulele is just sitting there collecting dust… Instead, enjoy balmy Summer evenings strumming your favorite tunes from Metallica, Black Sabbath and (of course) AC/DC. Your friends, family and (especially) neighbors will LOVE it. (Trust us on this one!) Never has our website had an entire radio station as an unpaid intern – and we would like the thank KOZZ 105.7 in Reno for the inspiration behind this submission.
When you head out to that baby shower, remember the Mama! Baby shouldn’t get all the gifts – and Mom may need a little reassurance.
A DIY project for the Aliens among us is your next bestseller. Start your literary journey with the drafts you make in this notebook and maybe the year 2022 can finally be better than the last two.
Settle down folks, it’s a cookbook… We just weren’t sure whether to put this in the “Literary Corner” or “Foodie & Drinkie Stuff”, so we’ll put it in both places… (Sorry, there really was no other way we could write this post – nor would we want to. We’re just in that kind of a mood!)
We have to believe the answer to the title of this little piece of awesomeness is… because they can. Our belief that “feline aesthetics” exists is limited to meaningful placement of disemboweled mice in ones’ shoes and the fact that they may kick pottybox sand in a certain pattern – but that’s about it. The rest is a brilliant marketing ploy.
Today we are delving into the self help genre of books because we know that there are times when we want to just stop what isn’t working and try something different. With that in mind, we offer you How to be a Villain! This book walks you through which evil laugh is best for for, where to put your secret hideout, it even guides you through the most pressing issue of which is better – Flying Monkeys or Ninja Warriors – as your personal army. And once you master the basic “How To”, we suggest The Villain’s Guide to Better Living in order to perfect your new career.

You don’t have to be a Boomer to appreciate this book – anyone with dark humor will do. It’s cute, funny, weird and has a dinosaur on the cover – so what are you waiting for?!
Encourage friends and family to put down the phone and you just may end up with a Best Seller. Guest books are not just for Weddings, Baby Showers or Funerals – put this in the bathroom and see how creative your guests are while they are a captive audience. They can leave reviews, random thoughts and participate in opinion polls, all while being “productive”.
If you want them to grow up to be Grammar Nazis, it starts with spelling. Reading is phundamental!
This is the closest we’ve come to a Literary Masterpiece and (go figure) it involves cocktails. Anyone up for a Gin Eyre? Remembrance of Things Pabst? Maybe Bridget Jones Daiquiri? As one reviewer writes “Quirky Gift for Literature Lovers”, to which we add “And Cocktail Enthusiasts”. Recipes, drinking games – you’ll get it all.
Here is a literary masterpiece in the making – and you get to make it. Will it make the Best Sellers List? Who knows, but it’ll be fun trying. We just have to wonder if this is how “People I Want to Punch in the Throat” started…
One of our favorite comic strips is now presented to you in a four volume set. Get every adventure of Calvin and his imaginary tiger friend Hobbes from the strip’s 11-year history. This will truly make someone very happy!

With a title like this, we’re sure you can write the masterpiece it deserves! CafePress offers this in their Stationery department – and it makes “back to school” a little more tolerable.

If you’ve ever wondered “What if” (or even if you haven’t)… This book has the answers!
We all run across people that annoy the crap out of us, but not all of us can put into words how we wish we could tell them off. You have problems, we have solutions – just tear out a letter and tear them a new one!
As the saying goes, “Never ask a question you don’t want the answer to”. Question: What can possibly go wrong?
I’ll let an actual review of The Big Fat Activity Book for Pregnant People do the talking – “Funny as hell (they had me at the constipated kitten coloring page). This book should be at every baby shower.”
(Oooh, constipated kittens… Good stuff!)
Prop this up by the litterbox for some bathroom reading and your cat will be prowling the streets at night a little more safely.

A compilation of bedtime poetry – probably not suitable for children.
We started “Literary Corner” on the site – and had to definitely start with this!
And what Literary Corner could be complete without THIS classic?!
