    In the summer of 1974, a 14-year-old girl in Dolton, Illinois, had a dream - a dream to become an actress. But it was a long way from the South Side of Chicago to Hollywood, and it didn’t help that she’d recently dropped out of the school play, The Ugly Duckling, or that the Hollywood casting directors she wrote to replied that "professional training was a requirement". But the funny thing is, it all came true....

    What made the experience of listening to Happy Accidents the most enjoyable?

    I really loved hearing Jane tell her story with all her animation and honesty, as well as a great story overall.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    maybe 2 - 3 but you will get through it quick

    The Great Recession has shuffled Clay Jannon out of his life as a San Francisco Web-design drone - and serendipity, sheer curiosity, and the ability to climb a ladder like a monkey has landed him a new gig working the night shift at Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. But after just a few days on the job, Clay begins to realize that this store is even more curious than the name suggests. There are only a few customers, but they come in repeatedly and never seem to actually buy anything....

    Susan says: "Fun, thought-provoking, mysterious.... and FUN !"
    "On the same level of Night Circus but funnier"

    What did you love best about Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore?

    the story feels like it was made yesterday, so current, yet such depth in the plot is amazing and I love all the characters and the sense of humor.

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

    For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris - Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut. Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives - the ones we'd like to pretend never happened - are in fact the ones that define us. In Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor.

    D. S. Smith says: "How the Bloggess almost made me crash my car!"
    "Love it! Laugh it! Lived it!"

    What made the experience of listening to Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir) the most enjoyable?

    The author is the best part of this, she is doing stand up comedy while reading her story. I cant stop reading it I have my headphones on right now and I'm not taking them off till I hear the whole thing.

    JUST GET IT IF YOU WANT TO FINALLY LISTEN TO A FUNNY BOOK...

    Your welcome.
