First I want to say: happy National Library Week!

Because this is National Library Week we will have a few library posts this week.

This post also begins what we hope will be a regular Front Porch Times feature of posts about our favorite library book of the week.

I discovered the Garfield Minus Garfield blog last week and enjoyed it so much that I placed the book on hold.

Now, I could talk about other books I checked out, such as Escape from Cubicle Nation or Einstein’s God: Conversations About Science and the Human Spirit.

But why do such a minds-on thing like that when there’s Garfield Minus Garfield to talk about?

The artist removes Garfield from existing Garfield strips “in order to reveal the existential angst of a certain young Mr. Jon Arbuckle.”

Here are some examples:

Granted, you have to have a certain dry (warped?) sense of humor to appreciate Garfield Minus Garfield. But when I brought the book home from the library some of us in the family laughed so hard while paging through it I thought I might have to call 911.
