Book Review and a Step in the Right Direction

Again, with all the time to sit around I have lots of time to review books.

This time I thought I'd go for something a little more along the lines of comedy. I was sadly disappointed. This is the most disjointed set of ramblings I have ever read in my entire life. There will be people who will be like "BUT THAT IS ELLEN'S FORM OF COMEDY AND YOU OBVIOUSLY JUST DON'T GET IT!!!!!", but I can't say the publication did a whole lot for me.

I LOVE Ellen's talk show. I think it's fantastic. If I had cable it would be on all the time. So it's not a matter of finding her not funny. It's just this book isn't funny without her ability to do stand up with the material. Blah.

I give it a 3 out of 10.

Also, on a better note...I'm going to start working on preparing recipes from The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen by Rebecca Katz with Mat Edelson!

It's a beautiful book with lots of healthy, yummy, easy-to-digest food. Now to just get up the energy. I am happy for the ability to be able to take my health into my own hands again soon. :)

Hi Annie,
Thanks for introducing yourself to me! I've followed you here and am glad I did. Looks like I'll enjoy reading your blog.

I love Ellen also and I get your point. You would think initially that her book would be great, but it's her mannerisms and style that make her so funny.

Take care!

Aww thanks Lori!
I'm always glad to hear that people like it here (or even think that I'm not endlessly depressing haha).
