Book Review - Bossypants

As I have mentioned before, I'm trying to add the non-fiction genre into my reading. This is part of my "bucket list," and I'm slowly checking things off! (This weirdly excites me.)
My latest non-fiction read is Tina Fey's autobiography - "Bossypants."
Now I'm not a huge comedy follower, nor do I watch Saturday Night Live or 30 Rock. But I've always admired Fey's "I-don't-give-a-shit" attitude, and knew that she wrote "Mean Girls." [A movie I've seen more than a few times and was used in nearly every leadership class I took in college ... coincidence, I think not.]
Enter "Bossypants."

Turns out, I really enjoy Fey's humor. On more than one occasion while reading her book, I laughed out loud ... to Boyfriend's amusement.
Remember that "I-don't-give-a-shit" attitude I talked about? Try this one for size -
“If you retain nothing else, always remember the most important rule of beauty, which is: who cares?”
Not to mention her great life advice ... something I wasn't expecting to get out of the book.
“Whatever the problem, be part of the solution. Don’t just sit around raising questions and pointing out obstacles.”
In short, I really recommend "Bossypants." It was a quick read that now even two weeks later, I'm still laughing out loud about. (And Boyfriend is still rolling his eyes.)
Have you read anything exciting/noteworthy lately? I'm always searching for a good read [laughing out loud not required.]
