The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death: Reflections on Revenge, Germophobia, and Laser Hair Removal by Laurie Notaro
The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death: Reflections on Revenge, Germophobia, and Laser Hair Removal

Margareto, August 31, 2010

This is a stellar book! I laughed out loud (and earned some dirty looks) while reading about laser hair removal. I cried (and earned some apprehensive looks) when I read about her dog. Laurie Notaro is brilliant! I can't wait for her next book.

Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex by Mary Roach
Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex

Margareto, August 5, 2010

Mary Roach is the latest addition to my list of authors to keep an eye on. In Bonk, Ms. Roach manages to make science (a subject I just can't get in to) seem accessible and endlessly funny! I laughed (and cringed) my way through whole chapters on erectile dysfunction, penile implants, and swine insemination. You just can't beat that!

My Life as an Experiment: One Man's Humble Quest to Improve Himself by Living as a Woman, Becoming George Washington, Telling No Lies, and Other by A J Jacobs
My Life as an Experiment: One Man's Humble Quest to Improve Himself by Living as a Woman, Becoming George Washington, Telling No Lies, and Other

Margareto, August 4, 2010

I love A. J. Jacobs! This book secured his position on my list of favorite authors. His writing is charming, intelligent, and not lacking humility. It really makes me admire his wife for putting up with it all.

Spooky Little Girl by Laurie Notaro
Spooky Little Girl

Margareto, July 20, 2010

This is a great book! I literally could not put it down until I was done reading it. I laughed, I cried, a good time was had by all! This is the second book I've read by Laurie Notaro (the first was The Idiot Girl's Action Adventure Club) and she may just turn in to my new favorite author. Now I have to run out and get the rest of her books!

Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher
Wishful Drinking

Margareto, July 20, 2010

A good book. Carrie Fisher is witty, even with only parts of her memory intact. I'm going to get a copy for my mom.
