New Books

Curtsy Mama and I are both recovering from food poisoning....ughhh!! We got bad shrimp at a Lynnwood mexican restaurant on Saturday night. It hit me Sunday night. My Mom stopped by on her way to Curtsyland Monday morning to give me a get well package.....then as soon as she got to work she started to feel it too. Luckily our wonderful SarahRose was able to come work the rest of the day.

So....quick update on new goodies as I am still feeling quite ill. We recieved a big order of books in yesterday. Sure to be a fav with our gentlemen visitors...(or the ladies looking to buy for said gentlemen) is Stacked Decks: The Art and History of Erotic Playing Cards. It features images of hundreds of erotic playing cards from 1807 to the present day, all illustrated with nude or seminude models, burlesque singers, flappers, 1950s pinup girls, and international superstars. We have a deck of pin-up girl playing cards from F.G. & Co that will perfectly top this gift!

Another one for the card playing enthusiast....Casino Cofidential: A Pit Boss's Guide to Beating the House. The review of this one reads: "In Casino Confidential, a licensed pit boss reveals how casinos stack the odds in their favor and how you can improve your own chances of winning. You'll discover tricks and traps used to disorient players (there's a reason you won't find any 90-degree angles in modern Las Vegas casinos) as well as essential strategies of blackjack, poker, roulette, craps, baccarat, pai gow, slot machines, and video poker. Plus you'll learn why many of the most popular gambling systems (like card counting) are barely worth the effort. Casino Confidential is filled with information that Las Vegas doesn't want you to know." Sounds like a must before your next Vegas vacay!

And one more exciting addition in Curtsyland....The Crimes of Dr. Watson: An Interactive Sherlock Holmes Mystery. You the reader must sift through the clues and try to solve this thrilling whodunit. Once you believe you've identified the culprit....slice open the final signature of the book (sealed at the printer) to read the remainder of the story. Fun!
