Alina | 63 comments I had a very difficult time choosing a book for this week's category. Funny isn't the same to each reader. I hope this one lives up to it for me. It doesn't hurt that it is about books and publishing.

It looks interesting! Another addition to my to-read list :)

I'm looking forward to your opinion!

Alina | 63 comments What a discovery this one was! The book is really a satire of the world of authors and publishing and marketing. The main character, Daniel, is writing books that just aren't selling. He's so down on his luck that he squeaks out a satire about using the potential of your brain. So, really it is a satire within a satire. Definitely a comedy of errors along the way. I chuckled at the incredulous actions of some of the characters and the lemming mentality of this world. 5*
