This is one of those books that is not worth the suggested retail price, but was most definitely an automatic purchase for me when perusing the clearance shelves at Half Price Books. I’ve been a fan of Jimmy Fallon ever since his SNL debut, but sadly they never made a “Boston Teens” book so I had to settle for this. And really, let’s face it, if they did make a Sully and Zazu story my recent track record would probably have me desperately

I hate "it" when people misuse the "hand-quote" thing, so I thought I'd mess around with these and see what happened. """" Seriously. It's nothing."

Dear Jimmy Fallon,
Thank you for your mediocre second installment of Thank You Notes. Thank you for keeping it short and sweet so I can read it in the bookstore rather than purchasing it with money that can be spent on a much better book.
Thank you!!

Recommends it for: Anyone who enjoyed the Book of Awesome, or likes internet memes, has a sense of humor
Written by Jimmy Fallon with the writers of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, you do not expect anything less than a few laughs out loud. And that is exactly what happened during my 30 minute lunch break. This is a very short read that I would recommend browsing through during a bathroom/lunch break, or basically anytime you have a few spare minutes.

Each page contains a relevant photograph to a "thank you..." note on an appreciated, unappreciated, or clearly ridiculous everyday observation, opinion

Great gift book or bathroom book. Not sure why it has a sound chip with theme music that will play, unless they are really looking to integrate the TV-into-book experience, but it's there as an option. I also think it would have been fun to come up with the photos for each page.

Hahahahahaha. This was a funny book of little "Thank You"s. It was so funny I should not have read it at work. I think I spent more time trying to find co-workers to show the funniest ones too than I spent working.

I love Jimmy Fallon's Thank You Notes. It's one of the main reasons I try to watch his show on Friday nights when I don't work first thing the next morning. I love going through and finding the ones that I remember watching. This is a great and fun read! :D

Absolutely hilarious. Short, inexpensive and a quick read (I did it in one setting), Jimmy Fallon and his writing prove again that they deserve your hard-earned dollar. It also makes for a perfect side table book and/or gift. Check this one out, alongside the original.

Much funnier than the first one! I laughed out loud a few times. I will be giving this for a gift in the near future.

Ditto to everything I said about the first Thank You Notes book, except this one has a bonus--a sound chip that plays the Thank You Notes Theme Music while you read! So much fun!

Some of these were funny, some were so-stupid-they're-funny, and some were just okay. And some of them made me think twice about what I'll be giving as Christmas gifts this year.

Five stars???? Yes, it isn't a great piece of literature, but Jimmy Fallon gets five stars for making me laugh at times when I need it the most.

This is just a fun little book that I have laying around my house and periodically I pick it up for a good grin.

Jimmy takes the obscure of life and makes it hilarious.

Fallon is an incredible talk show host. I absolutely CANNOT wait until he takes over the Tonight Show in February 2014. His writers are also incredibly talented. The monologues, the skits, they are all extremely well done. The best segment has to be the Thank You notes. To most people they are a notorious thing that must be done after every big celebration in which you recieve gifts, but Fallon takes a new spin on them with Thank you notes to ordinary objects or occurences, pointing out things a ...more

There were some funny ones, but there were a couple that seemed very similar to each other. I would give this 3 stars but the addition of James' Thank You notes music to the front panel of the book made it one star better.

Here are some of my favorite Thank You notes:

"Thank You... people who clap for the pilot when the plane lands, for basically applauding the fact that you're not dead"

"Thank You... New York city weather, for skipping fall and already being cold and wintry again. It's like gettin
I found this book at Dollar Tree and had to get it. The "Thank You Notes" music instantly popped into my head. It's one of my favorite parts of Jimmy's show and I try to watch it every Friday.
The book consists of a thank you note with a photo on each page. Some were funnier than others. It was fun to flip through, but I thought it wuld be funnier. I'm sure they save the relly good ones for the show though.

This book is great for people who are fans of Late Night, SNL, or who just want to read a funny book. The thank you notes in this book are entertaining to read, and it's nice to be able to flip to a random page and have a guaranteed laugh. I recommend it! Although it's best to not read all of the book at once. Read them a few at a time, then there's more of an element of surprise I guess.

I liked this book a lot better than the original thank you notes book. There was one that was reused from the first book, but otherwise I thought all of the notes in this book were much more clever and funnier. I also enjoyed that the front cover played the thank you notes music. Adds to the experience for sure.

My favorite element of this book was that the limited edition included a sound chip of the "Thank You Notes" theme music they play on the show as Jimmy reads his thank you notes. As I read, I found myself thinking with his intonations of voice. The introduction was funny and most of the notes at least made me smile.

More of the same giggles from Fallon & company.

Ups the ante with an electronic chip that plays the "Thank You Notes" music. It also helps if you can imagine Fallon's delivery of some of these in your head. The joke is not always that great, but Fallon's delivery sells a few of these that just fall flat on the page.

Still, a fun little diversion.

Thank you Jimmy Fallon for providing inappropriate laughs in a doctor's office waiting room!

This book really did have me laughing out loud. I found myself laughing at things I see and experience every day. I love being able to laugh at the ridiculous things around us.

In terms of content, his first set of thank you notes was funnier-- but this book comes in a limited edition form that has a snippet of the piano music theme song installed into the front cover. Awesome. (=

I love the button on the book cover that allows you to play the thank you notes music from the show. I love Jimmy Fallon and I love this part of his show, and I love this book. Thank you, Jimmy, for making me laugh.

The Thank You Note portion of the Jimmy Fallon show is always one of my favorite parts. It's always hilarious, so I was expecting this book to be hilarious and I was disappointed that it wasn't. The book has a few funny parts but for the most part it was just not as funny as I expected it to be.
