Free Picture Books for Adults (Crazy Hanahshosh has more crazy deals)

Yes, you’ve thought about reading a book. Maybe you even downloaded the Kindle app to your phone. But then you thought, “None of these big grown up books have pictures. What a bummer. Oh, never mind.”

But, wait! Don’t give up! Shoshanah Marohn’s books have pictures! Even the adult ones. And they aren’t naughty pictures, either. Just nice pictures.

What’s more, while Shoshanah went off partying for the big weekend, I, Crazy Hanahshosh, have highjacked this site and her Amazon publishing account, and all of her kindle books are free this weekend! So you can just download and read! Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!

Because, that’s how I, Crazy Hanahshosh roll. The books for free are:

Exhaust(ed): The 99% true story of a bus trip gone wrong.Exhuasted

“It’s like Jack Kerouac meets a nicer, more whimsical Hunter S. Thompson…” -Chris Wagoner

Eighteen-year-old Shoshanah travels across the country by Greyhound bus, with only her Grace Kelly coat and her Elements of Style book to protect her. Original art work adds to this eccentric tale of travel on the cheap in 1993. Both terrifying and hilarious, this ill-conceived road trip is doomed from the start. It’s funny because it’s 99% true.

Avoiding Sex with Frenchmen

Avoiding Sex with Frenchmen
It’s Paris like you’ve never seen it- ugly, unromantic, and hilarious.

Pure as newly driven snow, three teenaged girls arrive in Paris, with little money and a large passion for art (especially art where lots of people die gruesome and terrible deaths). Immediately, they are constantly propositioned by men. Everywhere. Anything they do, men ask to have sex with them. They don’t say hello or how are you, they just ask to have sex with them. Why do the French men like them so much? What is wrong with these people who won’t let you walk ten feet without asking to have sex with you? Will the three of them even survive the trip? Sketch drawings of every Frenchman who approached them complete the hysterical telling of this ill-fated tale.

and one children’s book:

Murgatroyd Buttercups, by Yosha Bourgea  

Take a fantastical journey to the grocery store in this intriguing picture book! Murgatroyd Buttercups is a unique girl with a unique way of doing things. Follow her on grocery day, as she sling shots her way into Simple Town, where things aren’t quite the way you might expect them to be. Children and adults of all ages will enjoy this book. Reading level is about third grade, but with all the pictures, it would be a good one to read out loud to younger children. The book is 86 pages long, but still small enough to fit in a large sock.

Enjoy the reading! I’m going back to sleep with my tiger.
