Funny Book Titles
When I was going through a bag of books that a customer traded in the other day, I noticed a book title that made me laugh.  All of Sonoma County has been grieving since the fires, so it felt good to take a moment to enjoy a bit of levity. I think my all time favorite funny title is:  Men Are Pigs, But I Love Bacon.  There has been a trend the last few years, especially with cozy mysteries, to go for humorous titles and usually with a play on words. 
Below is a list of cozy mystery authors and some of their more humorous titles.  You might have a laugh and also find something fun to read since cozies definitely focus on the lighter side of murder and mayhem.
Madelyn Alt:  Hex Marks the Spot, In Charm's Way, Home for a Spell and No Rest for the Wiccan.  The Bewitching mystery series featuring an offbeat group of ghost hunters.
Donna Andrews:  Cockatiels At Seven, We'll Always Have Parrots, Lord of The Wings, How The Finch Stole Christmas, The Nightingale Before Christmas, Six Geese A-Slaying and Stork Raving Mad, to name a few.  A southern cozy series featuring Meg Langslow, all with bird related titles.
Laura Bradford:  Hearse and Buggy, Assaulted Pretzel, Shunned and Dangerous, Suspendered Sentence and A Churn for the Worse are all the titles in her Amish mystery series.  The titles in her Emergency Dessert Squad Mysteries:  Eclair and Present Danger, Silence of the Flans and Dial M for Mousse.
Jill Churchill:  Grime and Punishment, A Farewell to Yarns, A Quiche Before Dying, The Class Menagerie, A Knife to Remember, From Here to Paternity, Silence of the Hams, War and Peas, Fear of Frying, The Merchant of  Menace, A Groom With a View, Mulch Ado About Nothing, The House of Seven Mables, Bell Book and Scandal, A Midsummer Night's Scream and The Accidental Florist All of these titles are from her Jane Jeffrey mystery series. 
Mary Daheim:  Just Desserts, Fowl Prey, Bantam of the Opera, A Fit of Tempura, Snow Place to Die, Legs Benedict, Creeps Suzette, Vi Agra Falls, All the Pretty Hearses and Here Comes the Bribe.  These are just a few of the titles from her 31 book Bed and Breakfast series.
Tamar Myers:  Too Many Crooks Spoil the Broth, No Use Dying Over Spilled Milk, Between a Wok and a Hard Place, The Crepes of Wrath, Custard's Last Stand, Parsley Sage Rosemary and Crime and Grape Expections.  These books are in her Pennsylvania Dutch mystery series and contain recipes.
Just a few more non-fiction titles:  Are You There Vodka, It's Me Chelsea, Don't Pee on My Leg and Tell Me It's Raining, Golden Years My Ass and The Grass is Always Greener Over the Septic Tank
Hope you had a laugh or two and were able to escape from reality for a while.

Holiday Traditions
Every Christmas Eve, I remember snuggling up on the couch to listen to my Mom read the Holiday classic, The Night Before Christmas.  Originally purchased by my parents from K-mart for 49 cents, our copy of the book was published in 1968.  Santa’s suit, on the cover, was a fuzzy sort of flocked material that we rubbed with joy every time it was read.  The colors of the book are a strange combination of pastel & neon only found in the late 60’s & early 70’s.  On every page of the book we had a traditional item we pointed out or a silly comment we made that had meaning only to us.  To this day, I read this book to my kids & my Mom often joins us for the story telling on the eve of the big night.  So many memories of our lives can be found in the feel of the pages or the smell of an old book.  What new memories & traditions can you create this year for your & your family?
