Thanksgiving in Recovery

This has been an atypical Thanksgiving for our family. Since my mom is recovering from hip surgery, we made reservations a month ago to eat our meal in a local restaurant that had a Thanksgiving special. The reason was two-fold: we didn't want Mom to over-exert herself (and weren't certain she'd allow us to do everything for her) and we didn't know if she'd be able to manage the steps up to my Dad's apartment, which has become the default place for family gatherings.

Countdown Fun with "Dedicated Idiocy"

For the post-Thanksgiving buying frenzy, I'm trying out Amazon's new Countdown Promotion option with my book, "Dedicated Idiocy: A Personal History of the Penn State Monty Python Society." What does that mean? It means big savings for readers! (And plenty of refreshing the browser to see if I sold any blinking copies yet.)

If you're not familiar with the book, "Dedicated Idiocy" take a colorful look at my days in my college Monty Python fan club. The book is packed with silly stories, pranks, photos, and even original skits. You don't have to be a Penn Stater to enjoy it, just someone who likes to laugh and enjoys a little non-sequitur with their bun and jam.

From today (Friday, November 29) through tomorrow (Saturday, November 30) at 6 PM EST/3 PM PST, you can get "Dedicated Idiocy" for just 99 cents, a 70 percent discount. After that, it will go up incrementally to $1.99 and then $2.99 before returning to the regular cover price of $3.99 on December 3. The earlier you get there, the more you'll save! Just visit the Amazon page for "Dedicated Idiocy" and check it out.

(If you don't have a Kindle device, no worries. Just search for "Free Kindle Reader Apps" in your favorite search engine and download one of Amazon's free apps for smartphones or PCs.)

If you're like much of America, you've begun shopping for holiday presents. Now give yourself the gift of laughter!
