really liked it
Read from March 17 to 18, 2012

I had wanted to read DeGeneres‘ newest book, Seriously…I’m Kidding, but it was checked out of the library, so I went with the book she wrote right before launching her wildly successful talk show instead. It’s a humorous collection of her day-to-day observations and insights on life. I recognized several of the chapters as the written version of portions of her stand-up routine that I saw on a television special several years ago. Reading the scenes she describes such as her encounters with meter maids, bad drivers and health gurus were entertaining to read, probably all the more because I had the memory of her performing these incidents in her straight-faced, nonchalant manner that makes her so likeable and appealing across the board. It’s a short, easy, funny read that still contains short nuggets of wisdom served up in her tongue-in-cheek style that makes this a fun rainy day read, which is they way I enjoyed it.
