Seven thousand copies of a cookbook called the Pasta Bible have had to be destroyed because one of its recipes recommended adding 'salt and freshly ground black people'.
Naturally, the publisher is claiming it's a typo. Riiiight.

You'd think the authors of classic literature would be a humble, respectful bunch regarding their peers, but no - truth of the matter is, most were just catty dickweeds that loved to talk shit about each other.
The flip-top cigarette pack is one of the most successful pieces of packaging design in history. TankBooks pay homage to this iconic form by employing it in the service of great literature. We have launched a series of books designed to mimic cigarette packs - the same size, packaged in flip-top cartons with silver foil wrapping and sealed in cellophane.
The storied history of the paperback book in American culture starts with a single goal: to make reading materials available to travelers for the cost of a pack of smokes.
Even years after his death, my favorite author is still teaching me something new. Check out this fantastic interview with Kurt Vonnegut from the '70s where he discusses growing up, his pivotal experiences in WWII, smoking, and the true definition of the word 'twerp'.

Letters of Note does it again, this time producing Kurt Vonnegut's fascinating account to his father of being taken prisoner by the Nazis, his liberation by the Russians, and repatriation at Le Havre. Solid reading.

Kurt Vonnegut is one of my all-time favorites - not just as an author, but as a person as well. We lost a great one when he died. Here's a slew of motivational posters made from some of his finer quotes.

In light of deer hunting season, I went on a search for funny deer hunting tales and accidentally came acrossed this story called I Hope It Rains in Heaven. It's not exactly the comic antidote I was looking for, but a deeper more nostalgic look at the father son relationship. Being the 5th of 4 boys myself, I knew I had to share it.

George Orwell's 1984 was a hell of a book - it made such an impact on me when I read it in school, I stole the copy I was issued and held on to it all the way up to our fire a couple of years back, and it was one of the first books we replaced afterward. It was and remains one of my all-time favorite reads. Here's a list of the top 10 most depressing quotes from it.
