    Oh my goodness. Let’s talk books like nerds.
    1. I’m so happy Lance liked Will Grayson, Will Grayson. Such an amazing collaboration.
    2. Did you finish The Art of Fielding? It is honestly one of my favorite books and I still reel in the feelings it gave me.
    3. Let me know what you think of the Jenny Lawson book. I’ve seen it everywhere recently, and I am tempted to start reading it soon.
    4. The Fifty Shades trilogy is so good. Not amazing writing, but I found fewer mistakes in the book than I did in the first ten pages of Twilight. As long as you know going into it that it is not literature, you’re good. It’s fantasy, at best.

      1. I left it in his car, and he ran out of his audio book and started listening to it! Hilarious comment: “I don’t think any teenagers are really that funny in real life.”
      2. Haven’t touched Art of Fielding. I’m thinking of reading it on paper…. I have it on audio now. Any thoughts? Is it one of those books you should readREAD?
      3. I read the first chapter at the bookstore the other day, and it seemed funny but maybe too self-aware of its funniness. I’ll let you know if/when my hold ever comes in.
