So I realize the whole book club thing has probably lost some momentum considering it’s been a month since we discussed the last book. I’d been meaning to announce our next book but found myself overwhelmed by all the choices. I don’t know if y’all are aware of this, but there are A LOT of books out there.
In fact, they have entire stores devoted to books. And buildings where you can borrow books for a limited amount of time that they call LIBRARIES.
After Sarah’s Key I really wanted something that didn’t cause me to fall into a depression that might last for days. And I kind of wanted something in the non-fiction genre because, truth be told, it’s my favorite. And I certainly didn’t want anything that had anything to do with the Holocaust.
Then I was at HEB the other day and saw a copy of Tina Fey’s new book, Bossypants.
(Yes. Our HEB has a book section. It’s very fancy. They even have a complete cheese section with pre-made cheese balls.)
Anyway, I am a fan of Tina Fey. I think she’s hilarious and the back cover of her book was enough to make me laugh out loud. And I am generally not a laugh out loud in the grocery store kind of person because people might think you’re crazy.
So the third book in the very informal, very casual, non-commital Big Mama book club is Bossypants by Tina Fey. I realize it might not be everyone’s cup of tea or Tina as the case may be, but it’s the book I bought at Borders yesterday and, thus, it’s the next book I’m going to read.
And I’d love for you to read it along with me if you feel like it. Or you can totally pass on this one and see if I choose a book that’s more your style next time.
But if you’re down with Bossypants, here’s what you need to do:
1. Go get a copy of the book or download it on your fancy whosiwhatzit. Amazon has it on sale for $13.97 right now.
Or you could always visit one of those new things they call a library.
2. Read the book. Or just look at it sitting on your nightstand. Whichever you prefer.
3. On Wednesday, June 1st, I’ll write a post with my thoughts on the book. We can just share our thoughts or what we thought was funny or didn’t think was funny. We can talk or not talk for hours.
4. That’s it.
5. Feel free to suggest other future book suggestions in the comments. I’m always open to any input.
