    In her hilarious New York Times best seller You’ll Never Blue Ball in This Town Again, Heather McDonald recounted her adventures as an unwilling virgin in Hollywood. Now happily married with three wonderful kids, she shows that life as a grown-up - even a pretend grown-up - has its challenges. Heather’s a working mom with parents who live next door, a sister who keeps asking for one of her still-fertile eggs, and friends who are up to more hijinks than even Heather can handle.

    Would you listen to My Inappropriate Life again? Why?

    Just a light hearted hilarious book; love it. Some others may not and may think it's inappropriate, in that case, judge the book by the cover and you shouldn't have purchased it anyway! It's a riot!


    What other book might you compare My Inappropriate Life to and why?

    All written by Tina Fey, Ellen,...and a few others.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Totally laughed out loud on many occassions.

    Getting to Yes is a straightorward, universally applicable method for negotiating personal and professional disputes without getting taken - and without getting angry. It offers a concise, step-by-step, proven strategy for coming to mutually acceptable agreements in every sort of conflict - whether it involves parents and children, neighbors, bosses and employees, customers or corporations, tenants or diplomats.

    Where does Fifty Shades Freed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I mean, lol...listening to this series is something you must do with headphones on because we all know how the book goes. it's raunchy, it's kinky, it's totally inappropriate for young ones in the house to hear, so listening via speakers is really not advised!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fifty Shades Freed?

    LOL ooooh there were several.


    What does Becca Battoe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ok, she reads both the female and male voices. Which really bothered me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. And I will not elaborate.

    Good read if you like 50 shades!

    You are not alone. Finally, here is a book that gets to the heart of what professional women really want. You have had enough of 60-hour workweeks, the day care dash, and the vacations that never get taken. You want to work, but on your own terms. Women have power. In Womenomics, journalists Shipman and Kay deal in facts. Companies with more women managers are more profitable and report higher levels of employee satisfaction.

    What made the experience of listening to Womenomics the most enjoyable?

    Overall; a decent/good "read". The first time I listened to this book, I LOVED IT. However, on listen #2, I found it to be quite unsubstantial and irrelevant on several levels. The book is filled of what I consider opinions and not actual facts (although "factual evidence" is mentioned)...I guess I was just hoping for more.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Claire Shipman and Katty Kay ? Why or why not?

    No; I didn't like her style.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    NO.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    This is not a date movie.

    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.

    If you could sum up Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir) in three words, what would they be?

    Absolutely awesomely funny.


    What other book might you compare Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir) to and why?

    I'm not sure off the top of my head because it's THAT GOOD.


    Have you listened to any of Jenny Lawson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't! I didn't know Jenny Lawson had others and now I shall go buy!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I could relate to her on sooooooo many levels. As a mom, she does an excellent job of telling it like it is. No sugar coating here folks, which is perfect.

    In this wickedly honest new work, Chelsea Handler casts the net wider with even funnier results, recalling the most noteworthy highs and lows of her life to date - including her efforts to diversify by dating red-haired men, her obsession with midgets, and the dog-sitting interlude in which her boyfriend became overly familiar with a Peekapoo.

    What made the experience of listening to Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea the most enjoyable?

    This is one of the funniest book I've ever listened to; and I must say...I've never been a Chelsea Handler fan! THE GIRL CAN WRITE!! And it helps that she is also the narrator. 100% comedy in every chapter, love it to death and more. <3


    What other book might you compare Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea to and why?

    Many of Heather McDonalds' books.


    What does Chelsea Handler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her personality is not for the faint at heart; which is why I adore her. She's hilarious. I can't put into words how awesome this book is.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    LMAO. Yes. I don't want to ruin it for you. But it takes place at a massage parlor.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep doing your thing, Chelsea!

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Tina Fey hit a homerun with Bossypants. A great listen for nearly anyone. Funny yet seriously serious at times too.

    Hmm...I'm not sure I have another book in my mind to compare this one to.


    Have you listened to any of Tina Fey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. This is the best so far.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud on several occassions.
