    Default Learn Me Good is only 99 cents!

    Hey everyone,

    I am new to this whole Pubit thing, so my book, Learn Me Good has just been added to the Nook arsenal. I invite everyone who wants a good laugh to check it out!

    Here's the blurb:

    Jack Woodson was a thermal design engineer for four years until he was laid off from his job. Now, as a teacher (dealing with those forty children), he faces new challenges. Conference calls have been replaced with parent conferences. Product testing has given way to standardized testing. Instead of business cards, Jack now passes out report cards. The only thing that hasn't changed noticeably is the maturity level of the people surrounding him all day.

    Learn Me Good is a hilarious first-person account, inspired by real life experiences. Through a series of emails to Fred Bommerson, his buddy who still works at Heat Pumps Unlimited, Jack chronicles a year-in-the-the life of a brand new teacher. He holds a March Mathness tournament, faces a child's urgent declaration of "My bowels be runnin'!" and mistakenly asks one girl's mother if she is her brother. With subject lines such as "Irritable Vowel Syndrome," "In math class, no one can hear you scream," and "I love the smell of Lysol in the morning," Jack writes each email with a dash of sarcasm and plenty of irreverent wit.

    Thanks!

    John

    Wow, that was a pretty awesome rush! Looks like Learn Me Good topped out at number 158 on the Nook, and now it's starting to move back up. Currently, number 191.
    That was great!!

    The snow in Dallas canceled school for 4 days last week, so I had plenty of time to get some writing done! The first draft of my sequel -- Learn Me Gooder -- is complete!!

    As a teacher myself, I can say that this is one of the funniest and accurate books that I've read.

    Well done, John.
