I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads & Instagram connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Waiting on Wednesday: Green Porno: A Book and Short Films by Isabella Rossellini


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that are eagerly anticipated.

My "can't-wait-to-read" selection for this week is:

Green Porno: A Book and Short Films by Isabella Rossellini

I've caught a couple of these shorts on YouTube before, and they are both hysterically funny and educational all at the same time. That, and I love Isabella Rossellini, so when I just found out that they were releasing a companion book and DVD for these short films, I knew what my WoW was going to be this week!

From Amazon:
"Deep down in the ocean, strange things happen, acts of love that are unfamiliar to the human eye: Anchovies mate in large orgies; shrimp strip down to get in the mood; starfish can do it two different ways; whales fight to make love.

Inspired by the wonderfully odd and humorous short films created by Isabella Rossellini and released on DVD for the first time, Green Porno offers a visually arresting and scientifically accurate look at the sex lives of marine animals and other creatures. This book will make you see the animal kingdom as you never have before."

Green Porno will be released on September 22, 2009 from HarperStudio.
