Worst-Case Wednesday: How to Make Household Chores Fun

Bonus Tip: Find cute animals to help you out.

Now that the dark days of winter are gone, many people will set out to clear off some of the dark place in their homes. That’s right; we’re referring to the dreaded spring cleaning. While there are some who relish the opportunity to give their home a good scrubbing, many of us fear and loathe household chores.

But, thanks to The Complete Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook, we have some very important instructions on how to survive all the tasks on your to-do list, and maybe even have some fun while you’re at it (active imagination required for most of these).

Monkey bread! You’d be bananas not to love it—oh yes, I went there. 
 
If you have opposable thumbs, you can make monkey bread. So why not make an extra-special batch (or three) and dedicate it to your favorite literary primate?
 
All you need are the basic 4 ingredients (biscuit dough, butter, sugar, and plastic bags), plus a couple add-ins to make your Bookish Monkey Bread.

Book Expo America 2014: Photos & Video!

It should come as no surprise that Book Expo America was, as always, a truly awesome time. We love that convention. Spending time with our friends in the publishing world, meeting bloggers, and hanging out with new fans... it's really hard not to have a blast. 

Highlights this year included some incredible signings with Science Bob (Nick & Tesla series) and introducing the book world to Grady Hendrix (Horrorstor) and David Stabler (Kid Presidents). We also had Hello Kitty come out to promote Hello Kitty Baking and Hello Kitty Crochet. And Book Con was AMAZING! So many book lovers! 

Check out the video above and the photos below for a fun look into the convention, both at our booth and our on the floor. See you next year, BEA!
