Typically, when I hear a book is "laugh out loud funny" I kind of snort and imagine that I'll find certain bits quietly amusing. Not true with this book. I can't remember how many times I had to pause in reading this because I was laughing so hard. Don't believe me? Then you should google Jenny Lawson's "And That's Why You Should Learn to Pick Your Battles" blog post and see for yourself. Everyone in need of a good pick-me up read should check this book out. ( )

I love Jenny. I've been reading her blog since before it was mega-popular and I think she is one of the funniest, most sincere voices online. So I'm sad to say that I didn't love this. It's funny, very funny, filled with her specific brand of insanity. But what it lacked was the depths that I know she's capable of finding. Occasionally on her blog she will dig a little deeper, writing poignantly about depression, her RA, her constant feeling of being a misfit. I guess I was looking for a little more of that here, now that she had the space and time to flesh out some of those themes.

Still love her. And I'll definitely read her second book, with the hopes that her editor will push her a little harder. ( )

Fun, and good for the long trip I listened to it on, but not especially engrossing. ( )

My Review: I found The Bloggess through Twitter and instantly took a disliking to her! No I’m kidding, I instantly was a HUGE fan because she did what I thought no one else in the business of blogging would do (remove dirty thoughts now!) she answered my questions! Mind you, some may have been dumb at the time but I appreciated her taking time out of what I’m sure was an adventurous and purely unplanned day, to answer my questions. Jenny, I thank you, again…

Now onto my review. It ties into the fact that she was in New York City the day her book was released for a book signing. I honestly would not have known about it had I not been at the B&N on 86th street weeks before and instantly noticed her picture up on their big screen advertising her up and coming book signing. If you know The Bloggess at all, her photograph of her hair in curlers is easily recognizable. Initially I was not planning to arrive early for the signing (to my own stupidity) but I’m glad I did because way before it started (promptly at 7pm as advertised and for that I thank you Jenny again! Not everyone is as “on time” as you when it comes to book signings) there was standing room only. I think her event was one of the largest book signings I’ve been to (not counting the two former Presidents of the United States book signings I’ve been to: Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton). To me that’s saying something. I was unaware just how powerful the blogging world can be and how supportive they are until this day.
