Some People Prefer Hotels gets its title from a grumpy old work colleague's comment when the author and his wife bought a motorhome. Whilst nervously driving to Cornwall for a week's holiday during the first heavy rainfall for months and the windscreen wipers stop working, it seemed he had a point. What with the rotten weather, wobbly toilet pan, temperamental showers and being cooped up in such a confined space with Monty, their faithful Border Terrier, surrounded by dripping wet weather gear and muddy boots, they start to think that buying a motorhome was the biggest mistake they’d ever made. Luckily the weather improves, but as they explore some of Cornwall's most idyllic and historic places, some for the first time and others they’d been to before, if something could go wrong, it generally did... As well as expressing his candid and crotchety observations about their campsite experiences and life in general, the author also goes on a personal inner journey as sentimental old memories were triggered off by his motorhome holiday. If you haven't already done so, you might just be tempted to buy a motorhome and likewise take to the road. ...Or, there again, you may prefer hotels!

Animals Behaving Badly

There's a lot that animals don't want you to know, and the better their public image, the worse their secrets are: gang-rapist dolphins; lazy, infanticidal lions; and, of course, our own dogs, who eat our money, set our houses on fire, and in more than one case, actually shoot their owners with guns. Animals Behaving Badly shows that animals are just like us: gluttonous, selfish, violent, lustful, and always looking out for number one. Using anecdotes from the news and from scientific research, Linda Lombardi pokes fun at our softhearted preconceptions about animals, makes us feel a little better about humanity's basest impulses, and painlessly teaches us a bit more about our furry and feathered friends. You'll learn: Bees love alcohol: even, says one researcher, more than college students Pandas enjoy pornographic movies-they're particularly aroused by the soundtrack-and macaques will pay with juice to look at dirty pictures A rabbit who lives in a pub in England is addicted to gambling with a slot machine African elephants raised by teenage mothers form violent youth gangs
