This Friday and every Friday for the next couple of months, I will be featuring a book that was published under the Amy Einhorn Books imprint. I am starting with the 2009 books and will spotlight them in alphabetical order by year.
Neil Pasricha hasn't forgotten the little (and some not so little) pleasures of life. In The Book of Awesome, he shares those moments with us. Here's the publisher's summary:
Sometimes it's easy to forget the things that make us smile. With a 24/7 news cycle reporting that the polar ice caps are melting, hurricanes are swirling in the seas, wars are heating up around the world, and the job market is in a deep freeze, it's tempting to feel that the world is falling apart. But awesome things are all around us-sometimes we just need someone to point them out.Neil's book is based on his award-winning blog 1000 Awesome Things. I dare you to start reading it, you'll be lost there for hours on your first visit. Just what kinds of things are awesome? The smell of rain on a hot sidewalk, popping bubble wrap, your sweatpants, snow on Christmas Eve, and being near the front of a very long line. I can't wait to finish reading this awesome book (you know I had to say that!).
The Book of Awesome reminds us that the best things in life are free (yes, your grandma was right). With laugh-out-loud observations from award- winning comedy writer Neil Pasricha, The Book of Awesome is filled with smile-inducing moments on every page that make you feel like a kid looking at the world for the first time. Read it and you'll remember all the things there are to feel good about.
Come back in April for a fun contest I'll be hosting. One lucky reader will get a signed copy of The Book of Awesome. Thanks to Neil for coming up the idea (which is a secret for now).
This book was featured as part of the Amy Einhorn Books Reading Challenge (click to join the fun). For information about the imprint, please read Amy Einhorn's open letter posted here on January 25, 2010.
