Musings of a Book Addict

I'm married to a scavenger of sorts and he often totes home rescued boxes of books that I paw through with shiny, hungry eyes. I pull out the odd and interesting and add them to my teetering stack.

Bossypants - Everyone told me to listen to the audio book and I'm glad I did. It was truly hilarious. And while I don't agree with everything that's said in the book, Tina is doing her thing and being authentic and real with us all and appreciate that. I always knew she shifted things at Saturday Night Live to get more women performing and writing but I didn't really put together how her hard work has truly revolutionized a lot of aspects of television. It also confirmed my feelings about why I never pursued a life of sketch comedy - it's brutal! I highly recommend the audio book and commuting with it. You'll head into work with a smile on your face and a new perspective on how ridiculous everything really is.
