Go The F*ck to Sleep...
Go the F**k to Sleep - Adam Mansbach

I remember those days! I needed this laugh when my boys were little. : )


I listened to the audio and read the book along with it. Samuel Jackson's introduction is just as hilarious as the story. Lol

Cold Space, meh
Cold Space - Jeremy Rock,Eric Calderon,Samuel L. Jackson

*Book source ~ Library


From Goodreads:

From Academy Award-nominee Samuel L. Jackson and Eric Calderon, the team that brought you the Emmy-award-winning, best-selling AFRO SAMURAI comes their next original series-COLD SPACE. When an on-the-run outlaw crash-lands on a hostile planet on the brink of civil war, he finds himself in the crossfire between two warring factions. But in chaos lies opportunity-because where there's money to be made. A hard-boiled sci-fi action-adventure with covers by Eisner Award-winning artist Dave Johnson and IRREDEEMABLE cover artist Jeffrey Spokes!


Not a terrible read, but it’s kinda clunky and has some plot holes. I like Mulberry though. He’s a badass. But Dee? What’s with the hooker gear? Pu-leaze! Now, let’s talk artwork. Excellent drawings and the dark colors fit the theme, but some of it is very hard to read. Talking bubbles are ok since they’re white with black lettering. But any kind of narration or “in the head” type of stuff had dark lettering and dark background. Not good. Next to impossible to read unless in bright light and thus it irritated the fuck outta me. All-in-all it could have been much better, but it’s a fast read, so give it a whirl.

Nelson Mandela’s Favorite African Folktales
Nelson Mandela's Favorite African Folktales - Nelson Mandela

Do not read this, listen to it.


Besides the veritable buffet of Hollywood A-listers from various ethnic backgrounds providing narrations, there’s beautiful music and songs in the interludes between stories and in the stories themselves. I’ve derived much enjoyment from the imaginative and enthusiastic performances from the narrators, most of whom possess great skills with accents. Even if you don’t recognise a couple of the narrators’ names, odds are you’d recognise their faces.


Whoopi Goldberg and Hugh Jackman’s performances were outstanding though most were above average.


Urban legends, origin stories, fables, parables, myths, magic, time travel, African versions of well-known fairy tales, clever and devious characters, and emotionally touching stories – what more could you want?


Well, the publisher has donated 100% of its takings from the audio to Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund and Artists for New South Africa who work with children affected by HIV/AIDS.


Here’s a rundown of the folktales:

Go the F--k to Sleep - Adam Mansbach, Samuel L. Jackson 2011 June 16Read by Samuel L. Jackson! And it's free for a limited time at Audible. w00t!Pure, dead, brilliant. Mansbach has got his parody spot on. Jackson does a wonderful job of reading the straight bedtime-book lines in the perfect soothing-parent voice, and in vocalizing his growing consternation and frustration. Totally awesome, although I don't expect to many non-parents to enjoy the genius of the thing.***2011 August 03I used this to demonstrate the audio books capability of the Kindle. We laughed with tears running down our faces.***2013 April 10I just had the privilege and delight of playing this for two coworkers, one of whom hadn't heard of the book. Tears running out of all our eyes from the laughter.
