BOOK REVIEW: Seriously...I'm Kidding by Ellen Degeneres

ABOUT THE BOOK (from Amazon):

"I've experienced a whole lot the last few years and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?"


I "read" this in audiobook format and all I can say is I...LOVED it.  Seriously...I'm not kidding.

I'll admit, I'm an Ellen fan, so I may be slightly biased, but this book was just what I needed.  I typically read non-fiction (business) books and occasionally fiction, but I was bored.  I needed something different, something light, something that didn't make me feel like I was reading.  After all, reading is work. 

The audiobook is narrated by Ellen, who is just a joy to listen to.  Over the course of three hours, Ellen talks about everything from gardening to gambling to how to become a billionaire.  She tells fun, lighthearted stories and she just makes you laugh. 

I don't know many men in my life who would enjoy this book, but I would highly recommend it for women, especially those who are already a fan of Ellen.
