    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!"
    "That is a funny book"

  • Tough Sh-t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good

    Take one look at Kevin Smith: He's a balding fatty who wears a size XXL hockey jersey, shorts, and slippers year-round. Not a likely source for life advice. But take a second look at Kevin Smith: He changed filmmaking forever when he was twenty-four with the release of Clerks, and since then has gone on to make nine more profitable movies, runs his own production company, wrote a best-selling graphic novel, and has a beautiful wife and kids. So he must be doing something right.

    Pamela J says: "Such a likable slob!"
    "Funny Sh*t!"

    What did you love best about Tough Sh-t?

    Great comedic insight into the inner workings of the movie industry and a coming of age book while working in the '90s-'00's. That is funny Sh*t! Listen only if you aren't offended by the word vernacular word for semen, and/or you like Kevin Smith movies.


    What other book might you compare Tough Sh-t to and why?

    No idea.


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

    No


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Tough Sh-t?

    There is some Tough Sh*t and you need to have some humor to get through it. There are some great Zen-like insights. Jennifer Swaback Smith has the patience of a nun to put up with Kevin. Great stories.
