Bossypants - Tina Fey Funny book. Think of this as 3 1/2 stars. It's a good book, but it's not Austen or Eliot or Atwood or any of those other folks I give 4 stars to. And I tend to be really stingy with 5s. So trust me--it's funny and off-beat and self-deprecating and all the things you'd expect from Tina Fey. Unfortunately, I can't find a way to give you a good taste of it because the humor builds across a section, and I'd probably be sued for copyright stuff if I gave you enough to get a taste (but you can do it with the Amazon Look Inside feature). Trust me, it is funny enough in parts to have had me annoying my husband who is trying to sleep cause I couldn't stifle the laughs enough. It's fun to walk through Tina Fey's life. And I came away not only liking her politics (which always helps) but liking her. I think she is a nice person. That's a good thing. And boy was this a quick and easy read compared to most of what I have on my bookshelf. Think of it as a palate cleanser between the serious stuff.
