Everyone knows the age old saying “April showers bring May flowers.” And while a logical look at the average precipitation by month may show that this is not necessarily true, those who think worst-case scenario just KNOW that April is the most dangerous month for rain.
Furthermore, what happens if that innocent rain shower turns into a full-fledged flood? And what if you happen to be driving when that happens? Well, good thing The Ultimate Worst-Case Scenario Handbook is here to give you instructions on what to do. Because it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

On Friday, April 18th, Ben H. Winters took home the 2014 Philip K. Dick Award for Countdown City, the second book in The Last Policeman trilogy. The award honors a distinguished original science fiction paperback, and is presented annually with the support of the Philip K. Dick Trust.

Look I get it, at some point someone had a horrible experience in a library, and as a result we librarians are doomed to be typecast as grey haired old biddies who wear horn-rimmed glasses while we shush everything in sight. Thankfully we have used this stereotype to our advantage over the years to hide our true purpose; a purpose I am about to reveal to you know.
Librarians the world over are all part of a secret ninja society dedicated to protecting your right to read.
And we have superpowers.
Don't believe me? Let's take a look at ten of the awesomest librarians out there, shall we? Then let's see how many of you rush out to attend library school.
Bibliophiles all over the world spend their times pouring over the stacks of books at libraries and book stores, looking for that next classic book that will become an instant favorite. It can be hard sometimes to determine which books to read. There are so many options and they all have their pros and cons. How to choose is the question.
It occurred to me just the other day that a simple look at my playlist would point me in the right direction. I know it sounds a bit bizarre but by listening to some of my favorite rock songs, I have a perfect guide to some of the best novels ever written.
Plug in your earbuds and prepare for one hell of a read.
