HARD CHOICES… WE ALL FACE THEM… For example, many of us are looking for the perfect bedtime book — one the kids ask for over and over, that soothes them and gets them to sleep in a jiff!

BUT DID YOU KNOW THAT GOODNIGHT MOON IS DESTROYING OUR PLANET??!!

It’s true! No one knows just why, but since the publication of Goodnight Moon in 1947, pollution around the globe has increased dramatically! Before the book’s publication, no one had even heard of the word “smog”! This children’s classic might even be responsible for “El NiƱo” and all of the extreme weather of the last few years. Can we afford to gamble with the planet by buying such a book??? What CAN we do?

In desperation, some have turned to other bedtime bestsellers, like Guess How Much I Love You? As IF! Hard anecdotal evidence now shows that many of that book’s most devoted readers are notorious litterbugs! (Boo!) The plastic bags and garbage one sees along highways can be so depressing! Ironically, even Nutbrown Hare wouldn’t last very long in that kind of toxic environment!

Let’s face it: parents are in a pickle. Because we now know that buying Goodnight Moon (hiss!!!) or those other books is the moral equivalent of shooting wolves and polar bears from a plane! That, my friends, is unacceptable!

BUT WAIT!! There IS a way outl! Because now there’s an Environmentally-Friendly Alternative to Goodnight Moon and all of those other irresponsible Earth-destroying publications!! I’m talking about It’s Time to Sleep, My Love — the new children’s lullabye book that’s as environmentally-friendly and lovable as a gurgling baby possum! It won’t mess with the ozone layer OR those wacky polar ice-caps! And even if somehow it does — you’ll get a full refund!

IT’S TIME TO SLEEP, MY LOVE is the Environmentally Safe lullabye book that’s putting the whole world to sleep — without poisoning the planet! It’s the green alternative that’ll make your friends green with envy! Are you ready to make your purchase and feel good about it? CLICK HERE TO SAVE THE PLANET!! HURRY!!

Don’t delay! Buy this book and send a stern message to all those reckless planet-destroying hooligans! Buy FIVE copies and tell ‘em you’ve had enough of their shabby polluting tomfoolery! This is serious! And as a way of helping to clean up the planet, Amazon.com has taken this gorgeous $17 book and SLASHED the price to $10.17! IT’S TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, ISN’T IT?

CLICK HERE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS POSSIBLE CLERICAL ERROR TODAY!!!

Yours for a cleaner planet,

Eric Metaxas, Author

It’s been quite a few days, folks… We had another absolutely extraordinary Socrates in the City event on Oct. 22nd, with Dr. Gerald Schroeder — Israeli physicist, Talmud scholar and author of Genesis and the Big Bang. He was everything we had hoped — a kind of Professor Irwin Corey with substance, if such can be imagined. Before Dr. Schroeder launched into his talk he regaled the audience by offering yours truly a gift of skin lotion made near the Dead Sea. A good time was had by all. Of course you may order a cd of the evening from socratesinthecity.com. They make great Christmas and Hannukah presents, as do Professor Schroeder’s fantastic books.

On Saturday I spoke about William Wilberforce at a benefit for the Wilberforce School in Princeton, NJ, and on Sunday I spoke about Mr. Wilberforce at the august Jonathan Edwards Forum in Wethersfield, Connecticut. The event took place at the venerable First Church of Christ there; the history in that building is enough to scare anyone off. The steeple is about as gorgeous and quintessential a New England church steeple as you are likely to find in existence, and the interior of the 1761 church has been gloriously restored. The pulpit, from which I dared speak, is so far above the congregation that one feels one had better have something important to say. Ahem.

On Wednesday I moderated a luncheon panel on publishing at the Dillon Art Gallery in SoHo, which exhibits the virtuoso works of Mako Fujimura, who — along with the supermodel Kim Alexis and the incomparable belletrist and polymathic mathematician David Berlinksi — was in attendance. It was, like, a scene, man.

On Thursday night I was the emcee at a First Annual Young Supporters event for the MPSC (Midtown Pregnancy Support Center) of Manhattan, an exceedingly worthy organization whose capable executive director turns out to be related to me by marriage, and rather directly, too. Because the youngish crowd was at one point slightly unruly I struck back by singing — The Mills Brothers’ “Dinah” and Frank Sinatra’s “Fly Me to the Moon” — to the inestimable accompaniment of Matt Veligdan and his Band. Yowza yowza yowza…

On Friday morning I had sinus surgery and am now in mending mode, prone and prone to crankiness. Thank you, ladies and gentlemen, you’ve been a terrific readership.

The book that KO’d an Ex-President!

This stuff is real, folks! CLICK HERE TO SEE IT YOURSELF! Watch it full-screen, if possible! Could you need more proof that this book simply WORKS???

If you want to get the kids to sleep in a hurry, look no further. It’s Time To Sleep, My Love is your fool-proof fast track ticket to Slumberland… It EVEN WORKS ON FORMER PRESIDENTS!! YOIKS!! THAT’S POWERFUL STUFF!! Zzzzzz…. [Music up and out.]
