The Most Dangerous Game: A Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal Collection

Huzzah! I might just hit this 50-book goal yet!

The Most Dangerous Game: A Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal Collection by Zach Weinersmith

I picked up this book and the first book in a HumbleBundle pack. If you're not aware of HumbleBundle, google it and then go buy. They are simply AMAZING.

Anyhow, before HB, I'd never heard of SMBC. I wish I had, though. His comics are irreverent and topical - perfect for me. Although some people might get a bit uncomfortable at the sometimes-sacrilgious tone of his work, I find it amusing, as I've never been one to take offense at people taking a light-hearted swipe at the seriousness of religion.

Anyhow, a fun book that will make you laugh - I recommend it!

48 THE CHILDREN'S HOUR Lillian Hellman (USA, 1934)



A child accuses two teachers of being lesbians.

This play was very controversial when it came out, but also instantly popular. 
I liked it as much as I expected to. It is powerful and sad, and has the power to make you want to strangle a few people. 
I don't have much to say because the writing is pretty much flawless. A must-read for anyone interested in American theater.

Book #71: The Real Christmas by Marcus Nodder and Tim Thornborough

This was a very short book (just 12 pages), which addresses the true meaning of Christmas and the reasons for Jesus' birth. As a Christian, I enjoyed it a lot, and it actually taught me a lot of things I did not know before (for example, Joseph wanting to divorce Mary before finding out why she was pregnant).

There was some humour in the book too, making it enjoyable to read, so I would recommend it to anyone who is considering learning more about Christianity.

Next book: A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen
