Currently I am reading:
If you are a fan of “The Office” you will LOVE this book. Mindy is on the show and she is one of the script writers. She is so funny and so real! I took this book to the gym with me the other night and actually realized an hour later that I was still on the elliptical and my time had run out!! I was laughing out loud literally. She talks about her childhood, being a celebrity and how she got there, her friendships when she was younger, body image, etc. I don’t even want to put it down!
So… I usually hate books that get so popular so fast and are like fad books… but to be honest I heard it first from a friend who doesn’t ever read books and she liked it – so I picked up. I don’t know yet, how I feel about it. I think I like, I think it’s kind of boring and the characters are a bit overdone some ways. I think maybe I just haven’t actually got far enough into it yet. I hear everyone buzzing about it but I don’t know yet how I feel about it. So far – nothing too special to me, but like I said I think I am just now getting to the juicy parts.
A couple of months ago a lady I work with at church gave us all a handout that had an excerpt from this book and I liked it. I put it on reserve at the library and just picked it up last night. I thought I would read a couple of chapters a night. So far I like it. If you like books like this, Christian self-help per say. I think you will like this one. It’s basically about how to have a better more confident prayer life and “drawing circles” around your hopes/desires/fears/concerns/etc and learning how to pray better about them.
