Robert Tabb (robert_c_tabb) | 3 comments No, but after looking at some of the reviews I'm thinking about adding it to my to-read list.

Sarah (sarahsari) I read this and there were some letters that were so funny I couldn't stop laughing. Some are not so great, but it was an enjoyable easy read.

peg (mcicutti) | 52 comments I thought that book was hysterical. I can only imagine the reaction of the recipients of the letters when they opened their mail. It has been a long time since I read LFAN but the series of letters that stands out in my mind is the one where Nancy wants to open a store using the name of another store owner. Do you remember the one I'm talking about? That particular correspondence seemed to go on forever. Very funny!!

Karen Yes, it was hilarious! Another great book along the same lines is "Kotter's Back: E-mails from a faded celebrity to a bewildered world" by Gabe Kaplan. He wrote a modern day version using emails instead of letters. I saw him recently at our local bookstore and he was as funny as ever and had more great stories to tell. The reason for starting the book in the first place is such a crazy story.

Heather (geekily) | 1 comments Ahhh, I have this one! I read it when I was 11 or 12, and my parents snagged it from me and read it, too. We all loved it. I'll have to pull it out again.
