Birthday books and wishes!

So today is the hubby's big Birthday, and by big I don't mean number wise just that it's the annual big day.  Of course I've bought him some books;  Christmas and Birthday's just aren't the same without at least one book!

On the list of hot Amazon arrivals for his big day are:
Invincible: The Ultimate Collection Volume 5, by Robert Kirkman and Ryan Ottley
Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal, by Christopher Moore
and Awkward Family Photos, by Mike Bender and Doug Chernack

The hubby's been greatly enjoying the Ultimate Collection of Invincible for awhile now, and Ryan Ottley's blog makes him weepy with jealousy over his artistic talents (which is insane, my hubby is an unbelievably talented artist, check out his deviant art page).  These stupid Ultimate Collections are a bugger to get in Canada though, one of those weird Canadian publishing things i guess, so I thought it was a good time to grab it for him on Amazon.

Lamb has been on my radar to buy him since it's original publishing date way back when.  There is a cool fake leather version that actually looks like a Bible, but I'm going cheaper with the straight up paperback so that I can throw in a fun silly book as well.

Which would be Awkward Family Photos!  Hysterical, laugh out loud fun.  We ran into this at Chapters a couple of weeks ago and the hubby was still giggling at the thought of it the other day.  So what the hey?! It's his birthday, time to keep the smile on his face right?

All of these would make great fathers day gifts if you're still in need, though gift cards aren't a bad idea either (who says they're a bad gift??!!). Check out these great links on Amazon for some additional Dad ideas:
Gift Cards
Kindle (I don't want one, but dads are notoriously tech covetous)
and the ever popular Lawn and Garden stuff.

But most of all, help me wish the lovely boy in my life a wonderful day! Happy Birthday Ryan!!


  1. I hope I live as long as the person that the cake at the top was for.

  2. I'm pretty sure if you lit it up it would just spontaneously combust.
