I adore this series.

I actually learned to shoot pool from my dad; I'm not awesome but have found that I am usually better than most people think, which feels pretty good. :D

This is not, however, a challenge...


Looks like a good time was had by all!

Makes me wanna play Spoons. Haven't done that since college!


My wife whups my azz in pool---and I have to admit, I was kinda hoping there would be a beagle or two in this post...


Do you know that I have never played Spoons? I watched a game once, and it got so ugly that I was afraid to play!

Are all your friends so talented/smart/intimidating? Renaissance women!

This book sounds really interesting!
Lo can beat me with one hand at pool. So sad.

Smalltown Mom

It looks like fun!


Looks like good times!! How fun!! I want to see your pics when you do build that raft! :)


Can boys play?


I LOVE playing spoons!! Sadly I always miss the ball when I play pool though... Something about that pesky hand-eye coordination stuff...

Manic Mommy

I suck at pool but I am a fierce competitor. And I married a lawyer - it's not always an advantage.


We have the boy version of the first book, but I think my teens learned to play spoons at youth group!
Great "book review" Jenn. :)

Laughing my head off : )


Looks like a fun time! What's a book shower?


You have a pool table? Could you be any cooler? Wow.

I used to play well, but it's been years. Looks like I know what I'm doing next weekend.


I bought the boy version of the book for my nephew. He loves it, and has methodically worked his way through over half the list!

Fun! But wait, I thought the laundry got folded and sorted in that area...

Now what?



I now have a new book on my list of ones I want to buy...what a great read!!

Spoons? one of the Top Ten Most dangerous games to play with friends.
Pool? I totally suck but I have a great time at it!
Tying a sarong? I need that page! The ones I tie keep coming off and that, my friend, is not a good thing!


Glad to see a positive book for girls out there. Rather than just...how to get the boy to notice you.
