    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....

    Overall

    You're going to love this book. It's like spending an afternoon swapping stories w/ her. I'm so glad I'm listening to the audiobook so no intonation or rhythm is lost while reading. This book will leave you smiling all the way through.

    About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

    Not the best writing in the world, but I think that is what pulls you into the world from a teenager's perspective so well. I was definitely roped in, and enjoyed the return to my teenage years.

  • The Compleated Autobiography by Benjamin Franklin

    Benjamin Franklin's autobiography is one of the greatest autobiographies of all time, but it was incomplete. Franklin ended his life's story in 1757, when he was 51. He lived another 33 eventful years, serving as America's advocate in London, Pennsylvania's representative in the Continental Congress, and America's wartime ambassador to France. Now, at last, we get the rest of the story, in Franklin's own words.

    Story

    While it is the complete works of Ben Franklin after his autobiography. I mis-read Compleated Autobiography. I thought it was also going to inclue the original and carry on from there. There are some good parts, but still tough to get through in places. But very interesting to learn more about. We were so fortunate to have him during that time.

    Once upon a time, a teenaged Kate Winslet (The Reader, Titanic, Revolutionary Road) received a gift that would leave a lasting impression: a copy of Emile Zola’s classic Thérèse Raquin. Six Academy Award nominations and one Best Actress award later, she steps behind the microphone to perform this haunting classic of passion and disaster.

    Story

    Kate Winslet's narrative is brilliant. The story is long french suffering. But Kate captures the character's essense and dances effortlessly with the "lugubrious" text.

    Nora Ephron returns with her first book since the astounding success of I Feel Bad About My Neck, taking a cold, hard, hilarious look at the past, the present, and the future, bemoaning the vicissitudes of modern life, and recalling with her signature clarity and wisdom everything she hasn’t (yet) forgotten. Filled with insights and observations that instantly ring true - and could have come only from Nora Ephron - I Remember Nothing is a pure delight.

    It's great to hear her voice, with, and perspective. I was hoping it would sound more conversational than necessarily read from a book, since its her personal thoughts, but still very enjoyable.

    The Thank You Economy is about something big, something greater than any single revolutionary platform. It isn't some abstract concept or wacky business strategy—it's real, and every one of us is doing business in it every day, whether we choose to recognize it or not. It's the way we communicate, the way we buy and sell, the way businesses and consumers interact online and offline.
