Daring you to read....Textual Healing by Eric Smith

Daring you to read is the new meme hosted by Tyngas reviews head on over to her site and learn more. While you are there sign up for her giveaway for a surprise book!

This week I am daring you all to read Textual Healing by Eric Smith. This book was first published on November 19th 2010. I recieved the book from the author for review, you can see my review here. I loved this book, it was incredible. It's another book that stayed with me long after I finished reading it. Here is the cover art and synopsis taken from goodreads.

 Few people have to deal with a haiku-speaking flower-shop-owning ninja every day on their way to work. Unfortunately for Andrew Connor, he is one of those people.And poor Andrew, his week has been a rough one. His former bestseller, Chasing Fireflies, is on clearance at Barnes & Noble for $1.37, his girlfriend left him for a corporate America action figure, and he's been tricked into joining Textual Healing, a support group for writers who can't seem to write anymore.
Dealing with his employees at his failing used bookshop, a strange new love interest from the Midwest, and a pet sugar-glider that has somehow managed to destroy his entire apartment... when will he ever find the time to put pen to paper again?
A quirky comedy set in present day New York and New Jersey, Textual Healing follows the story of Andrew, a self-deprecating, once famous author, his small bookstore in Hoboken, and the colorful characters that surround him.

So there you have it, I dare all of you to read Textual Healing by Eric Smith!
