ARE YOU LISTENING? I AM A POLE (AND SO CAN YOU!): AN AUDIO BOOK PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

WELCOME TO BOOKIN' WITH BINGO'S"
ARE YOU LISTENING? DAY"
I AM EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE TODAY'S
AUDIO BOOK CHOICE....
  GIVEAWAY ENDED
I AM A POLE
(AND SO CAN YOU)
BY STEPHEN COLBERT
READ BY TOM HANKS
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Stephen is excited to celebrate the publication of his first children's book, "I Am a Pole (And So Can You!)." It is the heartfelt tale of a pole searching for truth and meaning in its life and is certainly the most glorious illustrated celebration of pole opportunities available anywhere in hardcover!

Maurice Sendak described it best: "The sad thing is, I like it!"

And Stephen describes it even bester: "The perfect gift to give a child or grandchild for their high school or college graduation. Also Father's Day. Also, other times."


Stephen Colbert and Tom Hanks will donate 100% of the money they receive for the reading of this audio recording to U.S. Vets (United States Veterans Initiative).
 
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Stephen Colbert was The Daily Show's longest-running and most diverse correspondent. In addition to his role as Senior Political Correspondent he was one of the hosts of "Even Stephven," a point-counterpoint assault featuring co-correspondent Steve Carell, and the host of "This Week in God," in which he reported on all things theological with the assistance of the "God Machine."

His personality, insight and overall rightness could only lead to The Colbert Report, a half-hour nightly platform for him to give his take on the issues of the day, and, more importantly, to tell you why everyone else's take is just plain wrong. The show has been hugely successful.

The title alone makes me want to read it, plus the added attraction of Tom Hanks reading and the profits going to the U.S. VETS.

If Colbert couldn't be the reader, I think Hanks was a great choice. Thanks!
