Dog Days: A Year in the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile by David Ihlenfeld

Recommended by Jeff in Adult Services:

Like many people after graduating from college, Dave Ihlenfeld had no idea what he was going to do for the summer, much less the rest of his life. A Naperville native, Dave graduated from the University of Missouri’s journalism school and applied to become a “Hotdogger” driving a “Weinermobile” for Oscar Mayer.

He says:

I remember seeing the Weinermobile as a kid and just last year saw one with my daughter at a suburban event, so I was interested to read about someone who actually drove one. This is a fun, quick read that includes chapters about the history of Oscar Mayer and the Weinermobile program, as well as the year the author spent driving around  the U.S. and even Europe in a 27-foot long hot dog.
