Good morning!!!! It’s a great Tuesday, because this is the 2nd day of my vacation A whole ten days off of work… there aren’t words to describe the awesomeness. Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, and this week’s topic is Top Ten Books That Tackle Tough Issues.
Before I get to the list, just another reminder that as of August 1st, my blog will be at sarahsaysread.com – you can visit there for a preview.
3. More Guns, Less Crime by John R Lott: A study about the correlations between gun ownership and crime rates, the findings of which that show when citizens are allowed and/or encouraged to legally own concealable weapons, crime rates actually decrease.
4. It’s Called a Breakup Because It’s Broken by Greg Behrendt: Sadly, repeat relationships are a big issue among men and women. We all know those couples that break-up and then get back together every other week – this book helps you realize that once you break-up, there’s never a good reason to get back together.
6. The Butter Battle Book by Dr. Seuss: I think it’s great that Dr. Seuss is the author of one of the greatest books about nuclear proliferation, and how it’s possible that the world could be destroyed by a nuclear war.
7. He’s Just Not That Into Youby Greg Behrendt: Again, this is for those women that just don’t seem to realize that the guy she’s chasing isn’t giving her the time of day. This book will hopefully give some girls higher standards, and make them realize that a guy will make it very obvious if he likes you. They should pass this book out to middle school and high school girls.
9. In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan: The author makes the very obvious point that people don’t need nutritionists, doctors, diets, etc to tell them what to eat – as humans, we KNOW what to eat – real food, not a lot of it. You know, planets and animals, that’s really all you need.
10. Don’t Die, My Love by Lurlene McDaniel: I loved McDaniel’s books when I was a pre-teen, they all talk about different terminal illnesses. They’re actually really sad, I don’t know what was wrong with me that I loved these books so much. But this one was my favorite, about a perfect high school couple – except the boyfriend gets a rare form of cancer.
