If you are looking for a book that will make you laugh, we received a new book on Playaway (the self-contained audiobook) this week that will do the trick.

Bestselling author Lisa Scottoline and her daughter Francesca Serritella have written several collections of funny stories from their real lives. Their latest, I Need a Lifeguard Everywhere but the Pool, will make you laugh out loud. They tell of their regret at drunk-shopping online, an attempt at “smell dating”, taking a break from men, referred to as a “guyatus,” and the many funny situations they encounter while taking a long book tour by car. The stories are told with humor, but readers will find themselves relating to many of the experiences.

The library also owns this in print format, but you might want to get the added experience of listening to the authors share these stories in their own voices on the Playaway. Remember that Playaways can be enjoyed with any type of headphones or plugged into a speaker. Many cars are equipped with a headphone jack that allows you to listen through the car speakers. This would make excellent entertainment for long car trip. If you have questions about Playaways, please don’t hesitate to ask any of our helpful staff.
