Read from December 19, 2011 to January 02, 2012

Breezy and predictable, this collection of blog posts--by an educated young woman with literary ambitions who finds herself trapped in a bad day job--gets by on the author's abundant good will, but her observations are banal. The form of the book--short entries/chapters that satirize everyday human foibles--allows for impressionistic snapshots rather than developed ideas, so what we get are many extremely familiar scenes of a dreary job enlivened by the humor of the author, which isn't the worst thing in the world. I actually laughed a few times and wished I had worked with Anna Sam at any of my own preposterous jobs when I was her age, though, in the end, the scenes tend to swirl together and then float hazily out of your mind the minute you close the book.
