I love Ellen Degeneres. Seriously, I'm not kidding. I know what you're thinking: you can't truly love someone whom you've never met and probably never will. But I truly love her in the way you love someone — or something — that you know with your whole heart is making the world a better place to live. And I am positive of this fact when it comes to this woman.
After a hard day, her humor and generosity and overall love for people and life are a balm on...more
I listened to this in 3 hours. This is the absolute shortest audiobook I've ever listened to--and this goes for almost $30 retail. You...more
I guess my expectations were a little off when I read this. I wanted to hear jokes or more about Ellen's life, but instead, I got chapters where she encouraged me to recycle, to be happy, and to meditate. She sounded an awful lot like Oprah. Not really. Ellen doesn't take herself too seriously. (See the title.) She e...more
While I don't watch Ellen's talk show, I do really like her and have read her other books. This one seems... gratuitous. One chapter is made up entirely of her making sounds. As in, mememememeeme. Or, bwabwabwa. A fe...more
Irgendwer hat geschrieben "That book's a joke." Dem würd ich mich gern anschließen.
I've experienced a whole lot the last few years and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?Review
DeGeneres's amiably oddball riffs on everything from kale to catwalks to Jesus will make fans smile. (People )
Whatever the topic,
Obviously, you will laugh a lot while reading this book. It is hard not to when she's so random and just plain hilarious. At first she will be talking about her gar...more
She mentioned this book on her show a couple of times and it sounded good so I put a request in at the library. It actually came in pretty quick and as it is only 241 pages I knew it would be a quick read...more
I bought this book at the airport on a whim because I was about to deal with something very serious back home so I thought this would be a light read. I was right… but I was a bit disappointed. I’m a HUGE Ellen fan so this was a letdown for me.
Some chapters were really good, through Ellen’s humour, she was able to convey the underlying messages, which are (similar to her show), be kind to one another, be honest with yourself, etc. But there were too many “filler” chapters...more
Ellen’s third book, Seriously… I’m Kidding, is short; many of the chapters are...more
I wish I could have heard Ellen's voice while reading this book; I think if I were watching her doing these as single monologues, then had a break with other entertainment, I would have tolerated it more. (And for the record, I adore Ellen. I go back to her days with her sit-com These Friends of Mine, which became Ellen, and I cheered when she came out, not just because I was dating a woman myself at the time, but because I adore her for her bravery and her kind sense of humor.)
As it sta...more
This book was written in an authentic voice...based on what I've seen of Ellen, the book felt like Ellen was telling me stories and I could almost hear her voice as I read the book. There were several laugh out loud moments and I enjoy her honest, fun, clever sense of humor.
Side Note: After this book, I realized I do not like this type o...more

Its not the fact that it had me hooked, it was more of the fact that it was funny. I'm a HUGE fan of Ellen's show and I just love the way that the book made me laugh like it does when I watch her s...more

"It's so rare for people to actually set aside time to curl up with a book and read. By the way, I don't know you have to curl up to a book, but that's what people say. You can't just say you're going to read a book because then someone will ask, 'Well how are you going to read it? What position will you be in?'
'I'm gonna curl up.'
'Oh, good. So you're not gonna stand?'
'No, no. I'm gonna curl up.'
'Okay, good. Hey, you're not gonna lay on your side, are you?'
'No. I promis...more
I have not read her other two books so I didn't know exactly what to expect from this one. This is not a memoir. It is more a compilation of random thoughts Ellen has had since her last book.
There are a lot of really funny parts. I often found myself having to go back and reread things because...more
