In August we met to discuss LAMB by Christopher Moore. Honestly we didn't have a great success rate of reading the book... the only one who finished it by the meeting was Emily and it was her first book club meeting with us since last summer! SO, major fail on that! We all agreed that the book was a little difficult to get into and not what we expected. I think most of us ended up finishing it after the meeting and it was okay, but probably not a book we'd recommend to someone as a must read.
Our pick for September is BossyPants by Tina Fey.
Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV.
She has seen both these dreams come true.
At last, Tina Fey's story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon -- from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence.
Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we've all suspected: you're no one until someone calls you bossy.
