    "It's easy to forget that Amazon even has competitors these days, but Barnes & Noble is still my go-to. I read a lot of novels, and love having bookshelves filled with books. B&N seems to send me coupons all the time, and if you're lucky enough to still have a physical B&N in your area, you can buy online and often go pick up the book to skip the wait on shipping. Great selection as well."

      "This book, Is Everyone Hanging Out WIthout Me? is a great book and the pains of growing up as a comedian. Kaling tells it like it is in this book where she lays out her life stories and all of the perils and paranoias that went with it."

      "This is perfect for the funny people who want to do well as funny people!! This book is taking a look at really great and successful comedians. I mean, is anyone funnier than Seinfeld? (I think he's the best.) I really think this book would be a great and useful help to anyone wanting to venture into stand-up."

      "You should read this if not for any other reason that it is written by Steve Martin, who is multi talented and very intelligent This is such a simple story filled with heartbreak and humor. Worth the investment."

      ""Me Talk Pretty One Day" by Davis Sedaris is a funny book about adapting to a new culture and learning a new language. It is very uplifting and quite an easy read. I would recommend this."

      "This might be interesting for the average male, car guru. I however am not that type of person. I do like that this isn't a fiction book and he does talk about vehicles with a flare of humor. The price isn't horrible, could be a little cheaper. He does explain the difference in vehicles and what they each offer."
