Now That I'm Mature

by Sylvia Morice

Take flight in a hot-air balloon? Yes, please. Play in a ukulele band on the high seas? Thank you very much. Tackle tantalizingly-difficult jigsaw puzzles? Snorkel with sea life in Hawaii? Outmanouever marauding mosquitoes?

In this lighthearted collection of humorous essays the author entertains us with her quirky perspective on life. These short, "I can't believe I just did that" stories challenge the common assumption that growing older and growing up have to go hand-in-hand, like peanut butter and jelly or wine and cheese or white hair and wrinkles.

Find humor in everyday situations and share those nuggets to entertain and uplift readers? Most definitely!

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.”

Life Lessons, By Year

The Guest: My Spanish Springtime Ordeal

by Mike S. Rippon

THE GUEST’s visit to the author’s Spanish home was meant to be a carefree fortnight of work and leisure, but it didn’t turn out that way.

Mike Rippon’s account of John Smith’s eventful stay is both humorous and harrowing, as his guest’s behaviour becomes increasingly odd. Undisputedly an expert golfer, John’s veiled tales of his life as a secret serviceman begin to strike a less than harmonic chord and Mike is soon counting down the days until his departure. John, however, is in no hurry to leave, and despite enlisting the help of his friends, Mike’s undoubted patience and benevolence is put to the sternest of tests.

Mike Rippon’s first book is a timely and comical reminder that all that glitters on the internet is not necessarily golden.
