Glenboggin Book Club

As enthusiastic as ever, the Glenboggin book club has once again spent the last few weeks reading and selecting a wide variety of books to help edukate, entertain and surprise the townsfolk of Glenboggin and beyond. The following titles have been read and thoroughly reviewed by the reading sub committee (Binky Scot McNaughtie and others) and are now offered here for your reading pleasure.

(Please Note: All these books are real and are available to buy from Abe Books if you click on the book cover.)

Ever since the extraordinarily successful Baked Bean harvest of 2006, this book has been widely anticipated in Glenboggin.
A beginners guide to Sex in the Afterlife
A beginners guide to Sex in the Afterlife
It's never to late to prepare yourself for what's to come! Anyway, you can be more than ready for it if you read this extremely helpful little manual. Just don't wait until it's too late.
Goodbye Testicles
Goodbye Testicles
Packed with great illustrations, this is the perfect book for pet owners who are thinking about playing God with their pets bits (shouldn't be allowed!)
A New look at Wifeswapping
A New look at Wifeswapping
Yes, it's that time of year again. The nights are still long, the local knitting circle have cancelled their classes because of lack of candle wax, and instead, the towns residents once again take up their favourite winter pastime. Wife-Swapping. Binky was first down at the library to pick up this much requested volume but you too might be able get hold of a copy by simply clicking on the cover!
The Art of Faking Exhibition Poultry
The Art of Faking Exhibition Poultry
This fine book came under discussion at the last meeting of the club and several members got quite heated when Archie McStrivens came clean (if that's possible) and announced that even though his Cockeral had won 'Best in Show' at the local gala seven times, he had in fact been using body enhancing drugs. His Cockeral, also called 'Archie' has now recieved a lifetime ban, something that Archie (the man not the Cockeral) feels is completely unfair!
How to live with an Idiot
How to live with an Idiot
Subtitled 'Clueless creatures and the people who love them'

Well thumbed pages is the only way to describe this book. Seems it done the rounds several times over in the District known as Glenboggin. It's also rare to see it on the shelves in the local library!
How to be Danish
How to be Danish
With Scottish Independance lurking around the corner, some villagers who live in the more remote valleys (and have never really thought of themselves as Scots)... may like to consider moving to other, more interesting countries. So, after a request from one of our community (no names mentioned) we've finally managed to procure this fine volume.
How to Date a White Woman
How to Date a White Woman

Archie McStriven writes...

An interesting book that I would thoroughly recommend. Hasn't done me any good yet but yer never know!
How to make love while conscious
How to make love while conscious
Binky Scott-McNaughtie says:

Wow! I've been waiting for this book all my life. I can't tell you how many times I laid down and... (sorry, the rest of this review has been deleted by the editor!)
C is for Chafing
C is for Chafing

Reginald Cooper-Smythe writes:

I still like to get out there in the fields in my short trousers so... this book was a complete revelation to me.

So... if like me you like to get those knees out once in a while, pick up your copy of 'C is for Chafing' right now.
Electricity in Gynecology
Electricity in Gynecology
Dougie Hoots-McLafferty:

To be honest, I was looking for something with pictures (not being that good with the words you understand), however, this was a little better than I thought and, should the local doctor ever not be available, I am ready to... (this has also been deleted by the editor)
An Intellectual History of Cannibalism
An Intellectual History of Cannibalism
Archie McStrivens says:

I've been interested in this subject ever since my ancestors first ate that wandering monk, McLafferty.

For me, I found this book both intellectually stimulating and... it had some damn good recipes in it too! Anyone know where you buy those huge pots?
Bodybuilders in Tutus
Bodybuilders in Tutus

Miss Pendula Ambersome says:

Although it's not that well known, I once trained as a ballet dancer. Just the once that is. On Jan 14th 1994. Anyway, I found wearing the pink tutu an extremely moving experience although, the lesson clashed with my bodybuilding classes which won the day in the end. If only I had known then that I could combine these two disciplines things might have turned out different for me!

Ah well, can't have everything!
Practical Pyromaniac
Practical Pyromaniac
Another astonishingly good read for those interested in keeping the flame alive. This is the must have book for all those interested in Balls of Fire and all kinds of Incendiary Devices. Beautifully written by the author of that other well-known work 'Backyard Ballistics'
