Recently, I was given the chance to do a eBook review of Weirder Than Marshmallows Book of Essays by Dan Fogg.  I really didn't know what to expect from reading just the title, I guess, something that would be, well, weirder than marshmallows.  If that was even possible. 

Well, apparently it is.

If you want to see what I am saying you can check them out here: Weirder Than Marshmallows .

Dan really put it out there.  Said what most of us think and put it down on paper.

Parts of the book that were my favorite dealt with the "Don't Stop On Tracks" signs.  Common sense to a lot of us, but people still do it.  You know those warnings have been put in place because someone has done it.  Kind of like one that I always remember on a hair dryer "don't use in tub." You know someone has done it at one time or the other, so people have to intervene and put up signs or put little warnings on, well hairdryers.

Weirder Than Marshmallows is non-fiction and deals with real life occurrences to people. Dan talks about it all and rather bluntly, no one is safe, not even his Dad in this book.

There are times when you'll be shaking your head at what you are reading and other times you'll be laughing out loud at some of the things that people do "finkin' pink."

I enjoyed it, it was an easy read, but there are parts that are a bit dry, but they balance out and I think that you would enjoy this eBook as well.

Sadly, Dan passed away in 2002 but his Mom is making sure that his stories get out there to us and I thank her for that, and to allow us to read what Dan wrote.

Check it out, you won't be sorry that you did.

Now I will leave you with a quote:

People have ideas all the time, ambition is just the stubbornness to follow through.” - Daniel Fogg, 2001
