Hi All,

Its The Bob here, and as you can tell from the last few posts, my boss/mother has been cranky and confused.  Does anyone out there work for their parents?  You know, with the promise that you will be “running the Family Business” when they drop dead?

Well, the Bird does, and to be honest, I needed some time to myself.  Especially after I was ordered to review the Palin book.  That was just too much, and although Crows do not have nervous breakdowns, we have limits, LIMITS!

Anyway, I went off on Vay-cay, and I took the book I wanted to read with me.  It was not a job, it was a pleasure.

It was called “Logging Off” by Caitlin McKenna

I want to thank my few loyal readers for checking my work while I decided to take a year off and get daily mani/pedi,’s daily massages, and hourly fruity drinks.  The Bird lived like Paris Hilton for a year, but it got boring, and now I am pounding my beak – my brain was starting to atrophy!

Bobby OUT!!!

It seems that a lot of people have been wondering what happened to The Bird. I count myself as one of them.

I have a stack of books for him to review, and without warning he went off on vacation and has not written one word since.

He just waltzed back in and informed me that he was no longer interested in reviewing books, he was training to be a stunt pilot.

He figures he will be a huge celebrity, as a one winged bird doing ariel tricks.

I am trying to talk him out of it, and we are reaching a compromise, I think.  If I can get a few more book reviews out of him, he can go ahead and pursue “Reality Show Crow” fame.

Sigh.  Everybody wants to be a star.

Hello my fellow crow fans and assorted others, human and higher beings,

Again, my apologies for the delay, but there was a terrible legal hassle I had to go through with my boss.  I do not consider Sarah Palin’s book, “Going Rogue, An American Life” a book.

The Bird reviews books, both fiction and nonfiction, magazines, blogs, anything that is literature, and is interesting, informative, funny, factual, emotional – everything that true writers are supposed to give to their readers.

Sarah Palin does not qualify as a writer.  I refused to review her book, and the Parents were one hundred percent behind me, but it took some serious legal arguments to back up my decision.  In the end, we won, the courts ruled that Palin’s pieces of paper do not qualify as fiction, nonfiction, literature, factual, anything.  This waste of what was once a live tree is not considered a book by the High Court of Trees. As crows, we know what is and is not a book, from all of the time we spend with the original paper source.

It qualifies as a 44 year old woman writing a “Dear Diary” with all of the ability of an angry fifteen year old.

The Bird does not review “mean little girl” diaries.
