If you are looking for a “light” read, checkout Tina Fey’s Bossypants.  Her comedic writing elicits smiles & laughter.

Bossypants

That is the actual cover.

Favorites:

  • the entire chapter entitled “That’s Don Fey” – her father
  • reading about crazy showbiz life & SNL
  • hearing comedic twists (truth?) on motherhood, politics, & life in general
  • realizing how we can all relate on some level

Bossypants makes me want to find the funny in life.

“To say I’m an overrated troll, when you have never even seen me guard a bridge, is patently unfair.”  ~ Tina Fey, Bossypants

same different

A book about friends, relationships, death, haves & have-nots, despair, poverty, prejudices, riches, & history…

Same Kind of Different as Me: A Modern-Day Slave, an International Art Dealer, and the Unlikely Woman Who Bound Them Together

…but the message rising above all is…faith, hearing God’s voice, speaking God’s truths, & sharing God’s love.  A riveting & beautiful true story.
