Peanut cookbook a-comin’!

As I just posted on the Upcoming Peanuts Books list, August will bring us The Peanuts Lunchtime Cookbook, a paperback from Ballantine Books. I have a sneaking suspicion that this is just a new edition of the old Peanuts Lunch Bag Cook Book, but I could be wrong.

My baby Allison has me facing a minor dilemma – she’s taken to liking some of my Peanuts board books, and being a collector, I want to protect them. Lucky for me, the folks at bookcloseouts has a bunch of these books remaindered at a fraction of their original price. So I’m grabbing up Baby Woodstock’s Easter Eggs, Hello World, Snoopy’s Feelings, Woodstock in Action, and Charlie Brown & Snoopy for under nine bucks for all five books (plus shipping, naturally). And if you click through and do a search for “Charles Schulz”, you’ll find they’ve got a bunch of other Peanuts kids books and a few things for the adults as well (like scratch-and-dented copies of the paperback version of Peanuts: A Golden Celebration for $5.)

Ahh, but I’m a cheap guy at heart.

For folks who like to read my yammering, I’ve decided to expand my TV review blog to include my yammering on things that aren’t TV. So now it’s been retitled: Nat’s TV or Not TV

Live well, everyone!

I see it as a very expensive book with lots of extras

Coming in October is the book¬†Happy Holidays, Charlie Brown. Now, I’m not sure exactly what is inside this book – could there be an adaptation of A Charlie Brown Christmas somewhere in there, given that the words A Special Peanuts Holiday Collection appear on the cover? – but I do …
