Bose SoundLink Micro Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker: With everyone running music and audio from their smart phones, laptops, iPads and other devices; a great mobile speaker is essential for getting optimal sound. What’s even better is when that speaker is small in size and easy to travel with. Bose SoundLink Micro is a pocket-sized Bluetooth speaker that is able to play louder and produce richer and louder sound than most of the competing wireless speakers the same size. In addition to playing music, the speaker has a built-in microphone for speakerphone calls. The Bose SoundLink Micro is waterproof and also has an integrated strap for attaching the speaker onto a bag or clipping it to other objects. I keep mine in my bathroom to listen to music or watch CNN while I wash. Face it, everything sounds better in Bose. ($99)

Joan Rivers: “Joan Rivers Confidential: The Unseen Scrapbooks, Joke Cards, Personal Files, and Photos of a Very Funny Woman Who Kept Everything” – Hollywood icon Joan Rivers died in September 2014 after a long, accomplished career. A comic legend, Rivers was no typical 81-year-old when she passed. She still worked regularly and with her affinity for plastic surgery, she had the face of at least a 55-year-old. Her only child, Melissa Rivers has assembled a book of her late mom’s mementos and personal artifacts from her 50-years in show business. You’ll find scripts and monologues, letters from famous friends, exchanges with fans, rare photographs, as well as classic and never-before-heard jokes—many simply scribbled on everything from hotel stationery to airplane boarding passes—all in this amazing book. (Harry N. Abrams – $40)
