{September 23, 2010}   Release Day Picks…late of course

Books and Books caught my attention this week. Must be because I’m almost done with what I’m reading and so looking for the next.

Some highlights:

  • The Wave by Susan Casey about surfing and studying big waves

Just a sampling of the many books, Dvds and music out this week. More should be added as the week goes on…

I can’t believe I’ve never seen Zane Lamprey’s cult hit TV show Three Sheets, which is all about drinking! It airs weeknights at 10pm (will check it out tonight!) on the Fine Living Network. You can also watch full episodes on Hulu. Out today is his new book Three Sheets: Drinking Made Easy! 6 Continents, 15 Countries, 190 Drinks, and 1 Mean Hangover! about what else drinking.

I’m feeling a little under the weather today, so I’ve been slowly adding new releases to the Amazon links page…more to come as I feel better.
