Waiting on Wednesday: The Book of Awesome
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
This week’s pre-publication can’t wait to read selection is:
The Book of Awesome by Neil Pasricha
In this adaptation of his blog 1000 Awesome Things, Pasricha celebrates the simple pleasures of everyday living. Focusing on both tangible pleasures and simple experiences, Pasricha provides a contemporary take on everyday inspiration that skips the typical Chicken Soup for the Soul fare: “When you push the button for the elevator and it’s already there,” (“Ding!”); “When the boss goes out of town” (“Who’s up for a three-hour lunch?”); “Peeling that thin plastic film off new electronics” (“Welcome to the world, remote control”). Other items get more substantial discussions, including the other side of the pillow, old playground equipment, hotel lobby bathrooms, the last day of school, and the five-second rule.
This title will be released on April 15, 2010.
