Over the Counter #87

Well, of course the Ugly Christmas Sweater Party Book by Brian Miller, Adam Paulson, and Kevin Wool caught my eye as it passed over the library counter and under my scanner this week! I have a Christmas sweater I pull out once a year as well - do you? Anyone ever attended a Christmas party where an ugly sweater was de rigueur?

From the publisher Abrams:

"Definitive in every way, Ugly Christmas Sweater Party Book includes the history of the event, how to throw the perfect party, what to wear, and how to judge the all-important ugly Christmas sweater contest. But most important, Ugly Christmas Sweater Party Book is packed with more than 100 hilarious, full-color photos of outrageously ugly Christmas sweaters, including Scarf Face, Wreath Witherspoon, and Ryan Treecrest. It’s a must-have for the millions who plan to throw or attend an ugly Christmas sweater party, and a sidesplitting look at the funniest, craziest, most unbelievable holiday sweaters you can imagine—authorized by Team Ugly, the recognized experts on ugly Christmas sweater parties."

(Over the Counter is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World. I've sadly come the realization that I cannot physically read every book that catches my interest as it crosses over my counter at the library. But... I can mention them and maybe one of them will catch your eye as well. See if your local library has them on their shelves!)

I've never really paid much attention to the humor section in my bookstore until Borders had their massive clearout sales. So many fantastic books like this, I wish this would have been available!

Cath and Ashley - I hope your libraries carry it!
