Letters from Uncle Stan: The Correspondence of a Misanthrope in Spain: 2009 - 2010

by Stan Steventon and Millie Steventon

FROM THE FOREWORD BY MILLIE STEVENTON

My Uncle Stan was a grumpy man when he began to write to me from Spain back in the year 2009 and he can’t be said to have mellowed much with age. This book contains only his letters to me, as his old-school habit of always referring to my missives removes the need to include my supportive, and sometimes censorious, replies which possess little of the descriptive power and mostly unintentional humour of his own copious correspondence.
In a way I suppose that in the last few years I have been his only constant and empathic contact with the rest of humanity and this first volume is a testament to his fierce and unremitting determination to stay afloat in a world that has done its utmost to thwart his every desire. Uncle Stan is a litt...

Random Thoughts

by D. Simpson

I thought about creating a Go Fund Me page. But I then decided to write a short humorous essay in an attempt to raise money. I want to raise enough money to purchase a large 24 oz. jar of house brand pickles at Shop 'n Save. Although this article sells for 99 cents, I only receive 35 cents for each copy sold. Amazon retains the rest. To purchase a large jar of pickles, I need to sell nine copies. That would include the purchase prices plus sales tax. Won't you help me buy my jar of pickles....

Don't Stop the Geekin'

by Marc Allie and Christopher Tupa

Fitting is important when you are a kid. But when you are a geeky kid, teased and bullied for being different, fitting in is nearly impossible. I grew up nerdy in the 1980s, obsessing over video games, toys, movies, and comic books. Wearing glasses, reading science fiction, and being hopeless at sports were just a few of the things that marked me as a weirdo. This book details some of the struggles I went through as I grew up, before I figured out that fitting in with the crowd wasn't nearly as important as being true to myself....

Taking Off

by Ty F. Clemens

A few years after graduating college, Ty was fed up with "working" and "acting responsibly like every other adult is expected to," and chose instead to quit his job and backpack across Europe and Asia. Taking Off is the mostly true memoir of his trip.Yes, this may come as a shock, but a twenty-something wrote about his experiences travelling. Kind of like when Ashley from HR sent you the link to her vacation blog. The differences being that this book is longer, has less pictures of Ashley in a bikini, and gives you no real obligation to read it since you'll never bump into Ty in the break room where he'll ask you how you liked it. But regardless of obligation, you can still appreciate this book, as it consists of several humorous, interesting, and worthwhile anecdotes that are way more int...

Drive, Ride, Repeat: The Mostly True Account of a Cross-Country Car and Bicycle Adventure

by Al Macy

Author Al Macy is a character and a tightwad with a unique sense of humor. He and his wife squirreled away enough money to retire early, do interesting things, and take unusual trips. As he puts it:

“Every day I wake up with nothing to do, and by the end of the day, I've only gotten half of it done.”

During his working life, Macy was a neuroscientist, computer game programmer, jazz trombonist, chef, CEO, piano player, clam digger, and technical writer.

The book is a journal of a car/bicycle/camping trip from California to St. Louis and back, but Macy promises that “if it starts sounding like one of your brother-in-law’s boring slide shows, I will stop this book, and we’ll turn around and go home. I mean it.”

Interspersed with...
