    Just started “A Man Called Ode”

    Is that A Man Called Ove? I read that one. I almost didn't read it...the first 10 pages or so were very difficult for me as I lost my sister to suicide 5 1/2 years ago. It was worth it though.

    Yes sorry, typo.
    I’m so sorry for your loss, I can’t begin to imagine.

    I think I’m only 4 pages in so far, but I’ve heard wonderful things.

    Good book, unexpected ending.

    Just finished Bossypants by Tina Fey

    It's been a while since I read it, but I remember thinking that it wasn't as funny as I expected it to be.

    I have that on an amazon list somewhere; please tell me how good it is so I can spend some money soon. All my amazon points are tempting me worse than hot out of the oven chocolate chip cookies.

    Inside out by Demi Moore. I am really into memoirs right now so if anyone has any recommendations, do share :)

    oooh I love memoirs. Some of my absolute favorites (even if I wasn't interested in the person beforehand):

    Louie Anderson - Hey Mom
    Amy Schumer - The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo
    Carly Simon - Boys in the Trees
    Ruth Wariner - the Sound of Gravel (SAD!)
    Lol Tolhurst - Cured
    Anthony Kiedis - Scar Tissue
    Colin Jost - A Very Punchable Face
    Patricia Williams - Rabbit
    Eunsun Kim - A Thousand Miles to Freedom
    Kate Mulgrew - Born With Teeth
    Piper Kerman - Orange is the New Black (quite different from the show, and amazing)

    I remember the Carly Simon one was okay and Oliver Sacks was not terrible. I'm not sure if they were memoirs or autobiographies but I loved the ones by Rodney Dangerfield, Chris Kattan, Kevin Hart, George Carlin, Dali, Beatrice Wood ..Let us know if you find any more good ones!

    I am reading the Amy Schumer one and it's a bit boring. But I like Kevin Hart so maybe I'd like that one

    As usual, she grabs your attention from the very first page. Well worth reading. Enjoy!

    Finishing "Campusland" by Scott Johnson. I'm grateful for any satire nowadays...I think it could be a bit sharper and less on the nose, but it's still amusing. Adrian McGinty's "The Chain" is next.

    Is that the same guy who wrote Pretties? Dystopian?

    If you like novels about Florida (like Hiaasen), try Charles Willeford.

    Love Neverwhere! Neil Gaimon is awesome! The BBC version was relatively good...
