These are the titles of Dr. Newbury's nine books offered by Cross
Roads Press of Fort Worth, Texas. The books have been acclaimed
in reviews by newspapers across the Lone Star State, where his
weekly humor column, The idle American, is now featured
weekly in 150 newspapers, mostly in Texas, and is featured on
selected radio stations. The column
has had national visibility when picked up by news wire
services, TV programming and Paul Harvey News.
Readers of his books and his columns--as well as audiences that
total more than 5,700 during a career that hit the 50-year mark
in 2010--understand why he is called the nation's unstuffiest college president!"
That's the way he's been introduced on hundreds of occasions.
All of his books are available
in CD format ("Geese", "Sunny
Side," "Fiction," "Wheelbarrow," "Honk!,"
"World Churns" and "Life" in audio only).
The audio books run more than four hours each. Many people
know Dr. Newbury best by his speaking voice, so they prefer CD
audio versions of his books.
"I'd planned on writing books for several years, but didn't
anticipate turning out one annually, but so far, that's the pace,"
Dr. Newbury laughed, claiming that his first fear was that if
readers ever put down his book, they couldn't pick it up!...
