Bored Of The Rings
By The Harvard Lampoon
Sometimes childish, sometimes rude, always clever and always very, very funny, this book has delighted most, and outraged a few, Tolkien fans in the US for more than 40 years.Pulling in references to popular culture and fantasy literature as a whole, this is a killingly effective parody of THE LORD OF THE RINGS. From the dreary Goddamn (Gollum) to the feckless Arrowroot (Aragorn), the bungling Goodgulf (Gandalf) to the timid, mean-minded boggies Frito (Frodo) and Dildo (Bilbo), no character is safe. Fleeing the Nozdrul, bored by acid-casualty Tim Benzedrine and harassed throughout by the minions of Sorhed, the fellowship move through a Middle Earth like no other. Short, sharp and very much to the point, even Tolkien would be hard-pressed to surpress a giggle at BORED OF THE RINGS.
Buddhism For Mothers Of School Children
By Sarah Napthali
Raising school children is a radically different experience from tending the under-fives. Sarah's first two books - Buddhism for Mothers and Buddhism for Mothers with Lingering Questions concentrated on the experience of mothers with young children, toddlers and babies, and what mothers could learn from Buddhism to help them through this often desperate, tumultuous time. Now, with children at school, life is both easier and harder and there are very different challenges on the horizon - mothers are often thinking of going back to work, or juggling work/life balance issues. They are questioning what they want out of life, how they want to interact with the world, and creating new definitions for themselves. Children are more demanding too, asking questions, testing boundaries, beginning to define themselves as separate from their parents. Sarah Napthali explores the distinct issues arising from this phase of motherhood and how Buddhism can play a role in providing answers and direction, in her usual warm, wise, inclusive and accessible style.

By Jason Davis
Fronting up at a lab with a jar of your DNA under your arm is no one's idea of a good time. But getting intimate with a yellow-lidded plastic jar is just one of the things a man's gotta do when the doctor thinks his swimmers might be sluggish. Jason Davis always thought that he and his wife, Liz, were going to have kids. All she had to do was go off the Pill and they'd be knee-deep in ankle-biters in no time, right? After all, they were fit and healthy, had a good marriage, good jobs, and lived in baby-stroller central. How hard could it be? After trying fruitlessly for almost a year, countless visits to GPs and specialists, and a battery of tests revealed that kids were 'probably never going to happen'. IVF was the next step. But what perils lurk behind that innocent little acronym?Baby Steps is a funny, heart-warming and unflinchingly honest story of expectations and frustrations, pain and joy, hopes and fears. And all the things two crazy kids will do to bring a third into the world.
