This is the blog for people who would be knowledgeable about current events and politics if only politicians and news anchors didn't slant the truth. So, what else is there to do, but share an honest laugh?
Chalfont, PA (Vocus) September 27, 2010
In anticipation of the prestigious Pennsylvania Library Association book exhibit, leading self-publisher Xlibris announced today the availability of Sitting on Cold Porcelain, an engaging book authored by prolific columnist Rose A. Valenta.
A collection of the author’s insights, Sitting on Cold Porcelain provides delightful entertainment with an amusing, perceptive, and laugh-out-loud take on the state of the country and the world, on celebrities and politicians, and all the news events that make people roll their eyes and groan. Its satirical essays include Giuliani's Gaffe Could Qualify for Political Darwin Award, Rush Limbaugh: The Don Rickles of Radio, Menopausal Seagull Interrupts News Broadcast, Trick or Treat – Smell My Feet, and The Mona Lisa Had High Cholesterol? Readers will also take a glimpse into Valenta’s hysterical consultations with her friend, Mrs. Giordano, a South Philadelphia malocchio (evil eye) doctor. Mrs. Giordano bloviates in Italian and is the Italian equivalent to the ‘Numa Numa Guy’ in front of the TV when watching The O’Reilly Factor.
Witty and honest, Sitting on Cold Porcelain is an unapologetic yet unmistakably intellectual read that is seamlessly woven to challenge ideas and stir beliefs. It is now available for $19.99 in paperback format, $29.99 in hardback format, and $9.99 in electronic book format.
Sitting on Cold Porcelain will be featured at the Pennsylvania Library Association book exhibit, which will be held from October 24 to 27, 2010 in Lancaster, PA. Readers who wish to order a copy of this book are encouraged to visit Xlibris.com, call toll free (888) 795-4274 today.
