Let’s be honest: April is kind of a mixed bag. Baseball season finally starts (that’s good!), but you also find out how much money you owe the IRS (that’s bad!). You’ll get to watch the NBA playoffs (that’s good!), but you also have to tolerate your co-workers’ lame April Fools pranks (that’s bad!). So, yeah, it’s a wash, but you can distract yourself from work and the taxman with the help of some great books. This month brings readers a biography of the man who brought the world Stupid Pet Tricks, a behind-the-scenes chronicle of one of the most exciting moments in NBA history, an exhaustive look at the humble but delicious egg, and more.
