Reading an author's bio has never compelled me to read their book. The bio is something I normally take a peek at after I've read about 25 pages. But the bio of author Mark Laxer piqued my interest in taking a look at his latest work, THE MONKEY BIBLE. I missed him the first time around, even though his book Take Me For A Ride apparently caused a lot of (expensive) controversy. (Read part of his bio below.) If you enjoy controversy, THE MONKEY BIBLE might be a good match for you. But if there's already enough controversy in your life with things like recovering from a fire (yes, my family is getting better each day; thanks for your continued support), Laxer's book might not be a good match for you. Either way, you can sign up for the cute sock monkey I'm giving away.
It's funny, how the title of Laxer's book, made me remember the backyard sock monkey tea parties I used to have as a kid. My Grandma Hale was always working on a sewing project and for a couple of years, sock monkeys were all the rage. Heavy brown and white work socks, the ones with the red toes, were turned into cute little stuffed monkeys, who loved to drink tea.

From the Author's Bio:
Long ago, Mark Laxer's quest to understand the bigger world landed him in the inner circle of a brilliant, charismatic guru gone mad. After writing Take Me For A Ride and weathering a $30 million lawsuit, Laxer continued the quest by writing The Monkey Bible. Laxer runs a software corporation, a storytelling gathering, and a wildlife conservation organization. In 2004, he invented virtual ecotourism.
Still working on recovering here. Talk to you tomorrow.
Thanks for reading with me. It's so good to read with friends.
