Books We're Reading

If you watch Larry King Live, you saw Bill Maher interviewed February 12; the program was then rebroadcast on February 14. He's been interviewed in PLAYBOY and was recently a featured guest on Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Doug saw the February 12 interview on Larry King Live and decided to get a copy of Maher's 2005 book - 228 pages, published by Rodale Inc. He's been laughing since the first chapter.

I never owned a Barbie doll, but when I learned that Barbie and Ruth - 278 pages, HarperCollins Publishers - was available the first week of February 2009 I decided to get a copy. It's been an extremely interesting, quick read. Publishers Weekly wrote that Ruth Handler "fought indefatigably to establish herself in a male-dominated field . . . Barbie is sold at a rate of three dolls per second, worldwide."
