I know, I know, your summer reading list stack is as high as your—well, it’s pretty darn high.
I know, I know, given the world’s overwhelming problems, you can’t spare a second to read anything besides SERIOUS NONFICTION.
I know, I know, you’re an ADULT now, and joke books, like Trix, are for kids.
And yet …
My advice? Get over yourself … and get on with your life—which, IMHO, should be heavily weighted in favor of laughter, absurdity, mischief, screwing around, carousing, and wassailing.
Which brings me to …
My multi-award-winning book of satire for the awake and awakening, THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY, which I’m giving away FREE (until I’m not):
1) Won’t take up much of your precious time;
2) Addresses some rather serious topics with a heaping helping of snark designed to stimulate conversation about real-world solutions; and
3) Just might make you laugh like a mischievous teenager up to no good—and this alone could change your life for the better.
Here are some sample definitions from this SPIRITED GLOSSARY FOR THE LITTLE DEVIL IN YOU to tickle your fancy …
antidepressant: (n.) any of various energetic techniques for warding off parasitic friends, colleagues, and family members.
bathroom: (n.) where Americans go to argue about gender while the country goes down the toilet.
census: (n.) being counted so we can be discounted.
Dowist: (n.) blind believer in the stock market.
fanny-pack: (v.) to put on a few extra pounds during the holiday season.
global warming: (n.) result of excessive hot-air emissions by climate scientists.
hospital: (n.) where the healthy go to get misdiagnosed and the sick go to get mistreated.
And here are some reviews of THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY—which, in addition to winning last year’s National Indie Excellence Award for Humor, just received a Finalist Award for Humor in the International Book Awards—for your consideration:
“Irreverent in its honesty and take-no-prisoners approach, THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY: A SPIRITED GLOSSARY FOR THE LITTLE DEVIL IN YOU is an honest appraisal of words in terms of today’s sensibilities. Sol Luckman has picked up where writers like Mark Twain and Ambrose Bierce left off over a century ago, identifying new associations for words and phrases to match what they really represent today […] They say many a true word is spoken in jest, and perhaps Luckman’s humor is a well-timed wake-up call to be heeded while we still have time to ask important questions.” Readers’ Favorite
“Much of society has lost its sense of humor for fear of melting the heart of the next snowflake down the road. I say, turn up the heat. It is much needed … THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY does this with wit and charm worthy of notice.” Andrew L. Foss
“THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY is a sardonic antidote to the trite and asinine slogans and catchphrases—the basic language—of Big Brother’s thought-control system. On one level, it’s light and witty comic relief, and beyond the playful satire, it is scathingly accurate! If you’re in need of some conscious, fun, and thought-provoking wordplay then you might start with THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY. Warning: reader may experience symptoms of higher consciousness, greater clarity, and general merriment.” Brendan D. Murphy, author of THE GRAND ILLUSION

You can sample some Words of the Day here to get an idea of what you’re in for.
You can also opt out of future Words of the Day, though you’d be a real Loser to do so, and—aside from the NSA and Google unconstitutionally recording your every little electronic movement—your privacy is absolutely paramount.
(Pause to let that sink in.)
My advice again? Always remember to laugh anyway when overdosing on seriousness.
A final thought for all you dour fence sitters out there …
