The United States of Absurdity
The United States of Absurdity: Untold Stories from American History - Gareth Reynolds,Dave Anthony,Patton Oswalt

See my full review (and more!) at Mystereity Reviews

The duo from The Dollop podcast have written a book full of the odd, the outrageous and all the funny stories that never made it into the history books.

This was a very humorous take on some of the lesser well-known stories that make up the fabric of our history. The presidential cheese story made me chuckle (What. A. Legend.) and the Lobotomobile story was outrageous, but the best story, and the reason I wanted to read this book, was the Kentucky Meat Shower story.

The stories are indeed hilarious and absurd, but not necessarily untold. I've seen a few of the stories in other places, and Reddit is full of Action Park stories (and even has its own subreddit, /r/actionpark, so check that out if you want more!)

Overall, The United States of Absurdity is a short and funny look at US history, great as a time-waster, side-splitting funny and a must-read for trivia fans and history buffs.

Thank you to Ten Speed Press and NetGalley, who provided an advance copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.

The Drunken Botanist: The Plants That Create the World's Great Drinks - Amy Stewart
The Drunken Botanist: The Plants That Create the World's Great Drinks - Amy Stewart

You don’t have to be a heavy drinker to enjoy this, although it’s probably best if you have an interest of some kind in booze. So many wonderful kinds of booze. There are recipes if you’d like to host a Drunken Botanist party, but largely a lot of very entertaining trivia about all the plants that show up in all the drinks, in so many ways. An amusingly different way  into the subject.
