I Love Books I've Never Read

As I write this, before this book is released, I can say its likely the best book I have never read. I have pre-ordered so that I can either read the book and change my opinion, or just outright ignore the book. Either way, I'm sure I will be more ignorant.

Significant procrastination

I might buy this book if I thought I might not have to read it. Maybe it's a coloring book with big lines that I could perchance, sometimes, try to stay inside of. Or not. I would also probably buy it if it described the meaning, or lack of, of life. Yep, Nahhh. Maybe? Oh look, a squirrel.

The Onion Book of Known Knowledge

I just came here to get a free sample of this book. I pride myself on reading all the samples and never ordering a full edition of anything. There is a slim chance I may actually buy something
one day but the freebie preview would have to be at least
70 pages and very impressive. This Onion thing has piqued my
interest and has possibility but lets see some of the goods first.
