Manybooks Fun, but only in small doses!

I probably read it cover to cover but I basically agree with you.

The first time I read it cover to cover as well, now though, I only read bits and pieces if I feel like laughing a bit (and try not to get too annoyed at the author's snarkiness)


Lisa Vegan I haven't picked it up in ages. I can see it being fun to read just an entry or a few.

My favourite is the history of the world due to student bloopers.


Lisa Vegan I just read your review. I should take out my copy at some point and rake another look. In small doses as you suggest.

That is how I find these types of books the most enjoyable.
