The Endless Fart by Beatriz Rare
The Endless Fart - Beatriz Rare

I just have to say this is one of the strangest stories I have ever read. Who would of thought to write a book about Farts of all things. It is a hilarious book. I know a bunch of boys and men and some girls and women who would love this book. 

Ralph is an elephant, he wakes up late for work and hurries. He grabs a LOT of quick and easy food downs it and runs out the door. On the way to work he gets hungry again since he did not eat a full breakfast. He sees a pizza shop and a pizza missing one piece. He buys the pizza and continues on his way to work eating the pizza. Once at work he gets a feeling in his tummy. GAS!!!  

All day his stomach is upset and the fart just keeps going, hard as he tries to hold it in. And the worst part is he finally has a date with Bessie tonight. Bessie is so beautiful and it has taken Ralph years to get the courage up to ask her out. Ralph comes up with a plan to hold in the fart during the date. Hopefully he can make it. 

This book has really fun illustrations. They are vibrant and bright and will pull your attention. That on top of a hilarious story makes this a really fun book for anyone.

A Rare Book of Cunning Device (Peter Grant/Rivers of London #5.6) (Audiobook)
A Rare Book of Cunning Device - Ben Aaronovitch,Kobna Holdbrook-Smith,Audible Studios

This is labeled as #5.6 in the series but since it's not tied into any ongoing storylines or plots, it could be read out of order. It's a very quick, short read of a case in a library with a strange book. Nothing much here, but fun.

A Fun & Very Short Peter Grant story
A Rare Book of Cunning Device - Ben Aaronovitch,Kobna Holdbrook-Smith,Audible Studios

This is an audio-only release (for now anyway) about Peter (and Toby) go looking for a poltergeist in the stacks of the basements of The British Library. Harold Postmartin was hanging out at the Folly when Peter got the case, and wouldn't let him shrug it off for awhile, so he got to do a little field-work, too.

 

It was fun to see Postmartin in action and learn a bit more about him. Peter and Toby were their usual entertaining selves. The Librarian (who's name I can't remember, sorry), was fun -- the tie-in with Peter's family was, nice too. The Library (in both fact-based and clearly UF ways) was an interesting place, and I can easily see the need for Peter to return there on another case.

 

Holdbrook-Smith is just fun to listen to, if I heard another couple of books in this series, I'd probably hear him in my head for any future Peter Grant/Rivers of London books. Top-notch stuff there.

 

I gripe too much about short stories being to short, so I'll try not to here. This was a complete story, but it very easily could've gone on -- in fact when the file ended, I pretty much thought that my headphones ran out of juice. It was good enough to satisfy, but not so good that I can't grumble about it being short. This was fun, and though I'm not sure how giving a story away works to earn money for a library charity, I'll trust that it does some how and hope that it meets with plenty of success.

Murder At the Barbeue, Liz Turner
COZY MYSTERY: Murder At The Barbecue: A Rare Catch Cozy Mystery (Book 2) - Liz Turner

This was an enjoyable cozy mystery, in a no frills sort of way. I received this book for free and I voluntarily chose to review it. I gave it a 4 * rating.I like the heroine, who seems to like to solve mysteries but slow on the uptake in the romance department. She also has a puppy who seems to be in the middle of the investigations. This was pretty lighthearted as far as murder mysteries goes.

10 Words You Didn't Know Existed

Wouldn't it be great if we all had the time to read through the entire dictionary? Okay, maybe not for all of us, but there are so many words in the English language that we don't know about because they're not used often. We went on a hunt to find some of the most interesting words that aren't used in everyday speech, but should be!
