with your Jenny Lawson book recommendation. I'm sitting on the patio, reading instead of being "productive."

And, truly, hearing my husband laugh out loud reading brings me so much joy.

Thank you all!!

Furiously Happy was an audiobook I had on my holds list after asking for suggestions earlier in the week. It came available last night, so it is ready to occupy me for my trip tomorrow.

I'm so glad you're reading it! She is so funny! My favorite story if I had to choose would be the one that takes place in the bathroom. I don't remember which book it's in. She's great!

So glad you're enjoying it! She makes me laugh so hard I cry. I've received lots of strange looks reading her books!

eeza, I'm reading Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir) and my husband is reading Furiously Happy. Then we'll switch and read the other one. I swear, she is Allie Brosh's way more functional sister.
