Friday Videos Like Jimmy Fallon

Thanks to Liz Cook who gave me the heads up: The Duck Shack Agreement was on Jimmy Fallon recently as part of his “Books You Shouldn’t Read” segment:

It’s at 2:12 in that video – and here’s a link.

Hope your weekend is full of books you should absolutely be reading.

    Oh, come on!  The Texas-Israeli War is a fine book; sadly overlooked.

    And, while I haven’t read it, Illustrated Stories from the Bible… has the redeeming value of at least featuring someone—possibly even an illustrator—who has read the Bible (note the cover from 2 Kings).

    Captcha: given69.  Don’t dare type Obvious Joke, or mention the scene in Lenny.

    Heeee, I love the audience reaction. The world’s too big and life’s too short to start reading books I shouldn’t read.

    Well, unless they’re awesome books, being banned from libraries for the wrong reasons (like Bridge to Terabithia or Lolita, to name two hugely dissimilar but wonderful books) but I kinda doubt that that’s the case with The Duck Shack Agreement…

    As funny as the Duck Shack review was, it was absolutely priceless when he drew the legs on the Children are No Match for Fire cover!

    I couldn’t resist and looked up The Duck Shack Agreement on Amazon. Shock, horror, it’s out of print! Oh, the humanity! And it doesn’t even have any reviews.

    Still, there’s a ton of people selling the paperback used for $0.01 or $0.20, plus one crazy chancer who’s selling the “mass market paperback” for $90.59. I’m kind of wondering if they saw the Jimmy Fallon show and decided to jack up their prices just in case…

    I wonder if the people at Late Night are readers of this site and this is where they got the heads up for The Duck Shack Agreement.

    On a side note, now I’ve got the B-52’s singing in my head:
    The Duck Shack is a little ol’ place where we can get togetherrrrrrrr

    My God. It’s The Return of The Duck Shack Agreement. I am unlikely to ever run across an actual copy of this book, yet it’s been featured on SBTB, Heroes &, and that Awful Library Books site—the site for awful library books, not the awful site for library books, that is. And now this little book with the silly cover has made it all the way to late night TV!

    I must say that the comments on SBTB concerning this title were by far the funniest and most discerning. Sorry, Fallon.
