Kate Says: "Reading Is Fun!"

Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!

Broken Piano for President

Broken Piano for President - Patrick Wensink 4.5 stars

This book was published on my birthday. That alone makes this book awesome! Plus, I purchased the Wensinkian gift pack that came with a download of ear-bleeding music that's featured in the book (via the band, Lothario Speedwagon); the book itself (signed by the author himself); and an audio-cassette of the book being read out loud.

ODE TO BURGER OR WHY IT TOOK ME SO LONG TO READ THE BOOK AND WRITE THIS REVIEW

First of all, my favorite lipgloss is from Tokidoki. It is orange and on the top in clear encasing it features the character, 'Burger' in all his yumminess. Throughout this book I kept Burger close to me and kept applying so my tummy wouldn't rumble whenever I read/listened about the new burger wars that was going on in the book, since I never want to consume twice my bodyweight, ever.

Second of all, I have a red boombox (thanks mom for purchasing it for me when I was 10) and it still works today. The only problem is that I've moved so much throughout the years it took me almost 2 weeks to locate it, as it was in a box in the basement, that I forgot I even had. Once I located it, I was able to listen to the audio cassette version in all it's glory. This is an experience everyone should have, at least once.

Finally, once I was done reading and listening to this book I had to take a week and let it sink in, but this is EXACTLY why I like Patrick Wensink's writings so much. He jam packs his books with so much Wentastic awesomeness that your brain just might explode if you don't take a break to contemplate what the heck you just read.

And here's a not so subliminal message for you, sponsored by our friends the Russian Cosmonouts: READ THIS BOOK OR ELSE WE WILL SHOOT YOU!
