Book I "Read" in August + Giveaway (EDIT: NOW CLOSED)
Full disclosure: I didn't read Bossypants by Tina Fey, I listened to it on audiobook.
And: It. Was. Awesome.
So why do I have a copy of this book? I found it on my Dallas to Austin flight last night. The previous passenger had left it, and knowing how awesome it was, I took it.
Bossypants is absolutely hilarious, and listening to it on my commute made me not so sad about returning to work after 2.5 months off.
In the book, Tina Fey discusses everything: her adolescence, her first job, the starts of her career in comedy and improv, Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock, marriage, and motherhood. I laughed out loud at so many points. I love Tina's take on feminism, women & work, raising a baby, and creating the career that you want for yourself. She really inspired me and made me feel throughly entertained in the process. Plus, there are pictures in this book. What more could you ask for?
So, do you want to read Bossypants? In honor of a full year of "Book I read in ________" (and, lets face it, the fact that I nabbed a copy of this book for free), I'm giving away this copy of Bossypants that I found on the plane to one lucky reader. This book is in great condition, but not new :) I will ship this book anywhere in the USA.
To win, simply leave me a comment on this blog entry. Tell me anything. You can be related to me, my best friend, or a total stranger. I'll use a random number generator to determine the winning entry.
Winner will be selected/announced Friday, September 21st.
