If you’re a fan of Willie Nelson or his music, this book will speak to you – and it sounds just like Willie. Anecdotes alternate with lyrics, jokes and photos, lots of photos.

The Facts of Life
and Other Dirty Jokes
by Willie Nelson

If we’re backing up it’s just to get a running start
‘Cause everything we do we do with all our hearts
And it don’t really matter what they say
We wouldn’t have it any other way.

Excuse me, sometimes I just break into song.

Letters from Africa
1914 – 1931
by Isak Dinesen (Karen Blixen)

Edited for the Rungstedlund Foundation by Frans Lasson
Translated by Anne Born

LettersFromAfrica

My teaser is from a letter to Ingeborg Dinesen (her mother) dated Hopcrafts Shooting Box 20.1.14.

There is no sleeping car, but Bror had brought sheets and blankets. By the following morning the landscape had completely changed and then it was the real Africa, vast grass plains and the mountains in the distance and then an incredible wealth of game, huge flocks of zebra and gnu and antelope right beside the train, and although when you hear about that you don’t attach much importance to it, when you see it for yourself you find it really impressive.
