Quarantine reading suggestions from Reach Around Books

Many Americans have spent the past month observing shelter-in-place home orders to help curb the coronavirus. While the news of  late has been pretty bleak, I thought a little light reading might be a welcome suggestion.

Reach Around Books are for those of you who love a good double entendre and promises to have you in tears reading these “children’s stories”, that are most definitely for adults. These books are certain to offend those with a Puritanical streak but for my readership, I think this is perfectly on brand – so to speak.

Below is a YouTube narration from one of the five books in this series, Spank The Monkey Lends A Hand.

Bear Hunt

Here is an interesting story: People in and around Boston are placing stuffed bears in their windows and front yards for children and adults to look for and find during walks or drives. The movement is loosely based on a book called, “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt”.

How does it work? Simple – put a teddy or other any kind stuffed animal in your window, on a porch, tie them to a tree, mailbox or pole. The creativity is endless.

While this is based on the children’s book mentioned above, I do have a certain leather teddy who may start to make an appearance with some creative comments that are decidedly not for children to read.

Glow Disco Fitness home workout from the 80s

If you’re like me, you’re not quite disciplined enough to stick to a home work out routine so it is with a bit of cheek that I am sharing this funny video from Nathan a.k.a. “Glow Disco Fitness” home workout routine straight out of the 1980s.

Perhaps this will inspire you to workout at home or if you are like me, maybe pour yourself a drink and watch Nathan in his crop top and short shorts.
