For those of you who might be new here, every Monday I write a post about the book I read last week. It’s all a part of the New Years Resolution I made to read one book a week for an entire year. Here we are in November and I haven’t missed a week- I’m not bragging but…c’mon, I actually kept a New Years Resolution, that’s pretty impressive. 😉
Last week I read Bossypants by Tina Fey. You must be thinking “Wait! GotC! You already read that book this year!” And you would be right. I did. But I found it so hilarious I read it again. So sue me. (Please don’t sue me) Also, I needed some comedic inspiration. I’ve recently run into a bit of what the kiddos call “writers block” and I have always found that surrounding myself with things I think are funny generally helps shake the funny loose from the brain. It’s very scientific. Tina Fey is one of my comedic icons so re-reading her book seemed like a good idea. And guess what? It was. The funny finally shook loose.
If you haven’t yet read Bossypants, let me ask you this, “What the deuce have you been doing?!” This book is not only hilarious, it actually has a lot of excellent advice and insight into being a woman in a male-driven industry. It’s pretty genius actually. Even if you aren’t looking for insight or advice, I can promise you will laugh. And who doesn’t want or need a laugh? Read this book y’all. Read it hard.
What are you guys reading this week?
