Jeff Stanger writes funny novels that usually have the game of baseball as a backdrop. You don't have to be a student of the game or even a fan to enjoy them, however. There is enough mystery, danger, and even romance to keep you on the edge of your seat. His current work includes the Quick Baseball Mystery Series which follows the exploits of a rare baseball memorabilia dealer who always seems to land himself in the middle of a criminal case to be solved.

The first installment, The Fungo Society, finds Quick at Spring Training trying to find a rare game-used jersey. Along the way, he meets a group of old ballplayers named the Fungo Society. Think Bull Durham meets Grumpy Old Men meets Oceans 11! The Fungo Society was Shelf Unbound's Runner

This may seem obscure, but I loved the back and forth between Fletch & Barbara in Fletch Too by Gregory McDonald (Recommended if you like funny mysteries.) Fletch in the book series is funny but less cartoonish than he's portrayed in the 2 movies starring Chevy Chase. In this one, Barbara's dialogue is just as sharp and she holds her own with him.

I'm reading The Thin Man (Dashiell Hammett) right now and I have to say, I'm enjoying Nick & Nora Charles. (less)

Finding Food In The Shower

I noticed something odd in the shower yesterday. My wife has a body wash containing shea butter and oatmeal. Next to it is a shaving cream made with raspberries and olive butter. Needless to say, I have questions!  1) Oatmeal: How did oatmeal wind up in the body wash? Were other breakfast foods considered? Did […]
