After completing the reading challenge and reading lots of zombies and other things, I thought it was time for a light change of pace. I read Meg’s review of this Ellen DeGeneres book and thought I’d give it a try. She had read and mentioned Mindy Kaling’s book, which I had really liked. I didn’t like this as much as Mindy’s book, but it was still funny and quick and easy to dip in and out. Ellen has such a strong voice that as I read it I could easily “hear” her in my head speaking the words. Which occasionally made some of the chapters seem too much like a long winded bit, but for the most part I enjoyed this. I sincerely believe that she is probably very much like the person she presents herself to be and would love it if she was my neighbor and friend. And then she and Portia could come over for dinner parties and board games with me and Paul and it would be awesome.
