Eli of Coach Daddy has a story in this collection of funny parenting advice from several parent bloggers. I am not a parent to human children, but I still found it enjoyable and even hilarious. Eli’s story brought back memories of when my niece played soccer. I agree, nothing quite smells like sweaty soccer gear in your car after practice or a game.
Another story that cracked me up was about one woman and how she doesn’t like to read directions and usually skips part of them leading to some funny things. I highly recommend this collection. Here is the Barnes and Noble link ( I am not affiliated with them, but I like the store). This is the fifth book in the collection, I somehow missed the first four.
The Inner Life of Cats: The Science and Secrets of Our Mysterious Feline Companions by Thomas McNamee was surprisingly good.

It is in there though to help spread the word of TNR and getting people to fix their pet cats.
