Not Martha

book I like: Let’s Pretend This Never Happened

the cover of Lets Pretend This Never Happened featuring a Hamlet mouse

I read in bed before going to sleep and usually Scott falls asleep before me so I have to be quiet which is a problem because this book makes me laugh out loud. I insist you go read it. And if you don’t already read Jenny Lawson’s site, The Bloggess, I insist you go read that too. Also she’s on her book tour and, yay!, she’s going to be here in Seattle this Thursday and Friday. See you there, yes? Yes.

    Nothing wakes my husband up. My laughing while reading this book woke him up. More than once. Just finished it and I am in withdrawal.

    Seriously! The only other time I have had to surpress laughter while reading was Simon Rich’s Free Range Chickens which I still have not finished because the only time I get to read is in bed and Scott continues to insist on this thing called sleep.

    Thank you! I had never seen Jenny Lawson’s blog, now I’ll have to follow it. Can’t wait till our library gets a copy of Let’s Pretend in stock, I’m sure it will be a favorite.

    enjoy her reading when she’s in Seattle. she’s just as amusing in person as she is on the internet. :)

    I love Jenny, her blog and her book. She says what I want to say so often, but don’t.

    I aspire to be a free as she is although, I think my Dan would be just like Victor if I did.

    Eyes rolling and all.

    Bummer that I can’t make it to one of the book tour events… but thanks for the introduction!
