Here Comes the Bookmobile With Hot, New Summer Pages!

What to read, what to read? With serious beach towel time or an empty nightstand, you might just be looking for a new book. Here are some brand spanking new releases that I'm checking out right now.

Goodnight Bush
With lyrical rhymes and Where's Waldo? detail, this parody of the childhood bedtime favorite Goodnight Moon bids farewell to the Bush administration. Here's a little sample:

Goodnight Constitution and goodnight evolution. Goodnight
democracy and goodnight privacy. Goodnight old growth trees, goodnight detainees. Goodnight allies, goodnight Abu Ghraib 'Cheese!'

OK, I might not be ordering that one, but there's more — polygamy! Fascism! Oh, my! For more Citizen-approved books, piquing my interest


Stolen Innocence: My Story of Growing Up in a Polygamous Sect, Becoming a Teenage Bride, and Breaking Free of Warren Jeffs

A memoir by the 21-year-old star witness in polygamist Warren Jeffs' 2007 trial. Elissa Wall tells all about her forced marriage, the impenetrable mindset of the FLDS, and her long-awaited escape.

Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning

Today "fascist" is usually an insult slung at conservatives. National
editor Jonah Goldberg reminds us that history's great fascists were first socialists (liberal is pushing it). Look for controversial connections between fascist themes and American pop culture.

Final Salute: A Story of Unfinished Lives

Imagine having the job of knocking on doors to tell mothers and fathers their child was dead. Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Jim Sheeler did. He spent two years shadowing the marine in charge of casualty notification to give us vignettes of insight.
