I Will Blurb Any Book Within 24 Hours! Installment #23

Bart King’s Bart’s King-Sized Book of Fun: “King could hardly be expected to top what he had already accomplished in titles like The Big Book of Boy Stuff and The Pocket Guide to Mischief. What many readers do not know is that King feels compelled to write page after page after page. I think King should be patted on the back. King did an excellent job. This King-Sized Book of Fun definitely should be read by anyone who wants to read King's work.” – Mickey Hess

Kristina Kaufmann’s The Average Life of Evangeline Parker: “Old people don’t read so-called young-adult novels (they feel more like watching TV). As Jonathan Franzen once said, ‘You're either reading a book or you're not.’ Here's the good news: Teenagers seem to be reading them.” – Mickey Hess

Buzz Poole’s I Like to Keep My Troubles on the Windy Side of Things: “Buzz bares his soul in this book. Overcoming obstacles such as toothaches, his gently androgynous narrators (all fictional characters) are driven by two things: tough-minded exclamations and 21st-century anxieties.” – Mickey Hess
