    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.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Maybe I'm just too picky about humor, or something. This didn't have punchlines so much as "no really... it's true... isn't my life crazy?!" And the stories didn't go anywhere. I gave up after a few chapters.

    Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

    Would you listen to Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) again? Why?

    I was on the fence about Mindy Kaling, but her bio was so charming she won me over!

    From the unique perspective of David Sedaris comes a new collection of essays taking his listeners on a bizarre and stimulating world tour. From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, we learn about the absurdity and delight of a curious traveler's experiences.

    Where does Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As a Sedaris fan, I'm easy to please. All of his nonfiction essays (the first part of the book) were LOL funny, really engaging and entertaining. In the second half of the book he went into fictional essays, which were hit or miss.
