Marriage Hilarity

Marital Blitz cover

Marital Blitz
Berenstain and Berenstain
1955

This little paperback of marital comedy is brought to you by Stan and Jan of Berenstain Bear fame.  Enjoy some rather dated comedy about the perils of marriage. I doubt it would get a second look in most library collections, but the parents of baby boomers might still get a kick out of this.

The Truth About Golf and Other Lies
Hackett

Holly: I find books like this more difficult to weed. If it hasn’t left the shelf in eight years, I’d weed it too, but it isn’t awful in and of itself. I have patrons who would still enjoy this if I put it in their hands, but they are unlikely to find it on their own. Click here to read the IMDB bio on Buddy.
