I’m on a little bit of a Goodreads roll lately, putting up my tiny, one sentence reviews (with links to Literary Lunchbox, of course) just to see how each new rating impacts my recommendations. It is a time-consuming effort but strangely satisfying.
But when I went to link to my review of Mindy Kaling‘s book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and Other Concerns), I was shocked to find I had not reviewed it. Which is an oversight, because the book is a classic of its kind. I got it in the e-book version, and it has embedded photos, video, and audio. Reading it on my iPad, late at night when I couldn’t sleep, was fun (for me) and annoying (for my husband). Because I laughed out loud.
So if you are standing in a bookstore (assuming you actually have a bookstore available to you) and trying to decide between Mindy Kaling, Rachel Dratch, and Tina Fey, I’d say go for Mindy, because reading her book is like hanging out with a girlfriend. A really funny girlfriend. A really funny girlfriend who has a sit-com on Fox in the works.
