Hello Book Lovers of Bloglandia!
Just a very quick post because I want to make sure you have a weekend full of laughs.
And hey, since laughter is an excellent abdominal workout, as you’re delving into this fun-filled book recommendation, you can tell yourself you’re also getting a great workout.
Multi-tasking at its best!
Of course, if your abs are already sore from doing crunches or gymnastics or some other sweat-inducing activity, I’ve got a more somber something something a little bit further down (and a discounted something something, at that).
Funny Fiction from Down Under…
John is a humorous fiction writer who hails from the land down under (Canberra, to be exact). He swears he’s never wrestled a Tasmanian Tiger, although his bumbling characters often have “interactions” with the wily beast.
Blokes in the House is the 5th book in his Windy Mountain series, but each book can be read as a stand alone (and I do believe Book 1 is free if you want to start from the beginning).
About the book…
Former mayor James Northan, 82, isn’t on speaking terms with the former town drunk, who’s 83, and one of his former council employees, who is 85.
So when they’re forced to isolate in a small house together for three months to stay safe from the pandemic, there is bound to be friction.
But while James resigns himself to a future of face masks, hand-sanitiser and a life of much less luxury than he is used to in the company of two buffoons he didn’t even want to see again, he gets some very unpleasant surprises.
If you enjoyed the antics of the 100-Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window, the wry humor of Caimh McDonnell, or if you just really need a good laugh, DO NOT hesitate to pop on over to your favorite ebook retailer and nab yourself a copy of John’s book.
Even better? The book is FREE at some retailers and only 99c at others!! Which is way cheaper than one of those weird ab workout thingies.
