Just Finished Tina Fey’s Audio Book: Bossypants

Published July 28, 2011 - 3 Comments

I’ve always liked Tina Fey’s work, whether on Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Report, or in movies like Date Night. Yet for some reason I don’t think that I’ve ever watched a single episode of 30 Rock, and I can’t really explain why. It’s just never been a thought in my head when I sat down to watch something.

Well that’s about to change.  I downloaded Tina’s audiobook Bossypants
and have been listening to it almost non-stop. Saying that it’s hilarious would be a bit of an understatement. She reads it herself (which I love!) and she’s not only very funny, but also extremely intelligent.  She opens up about the secretive scar on her face, talks about her time in Second City, SNL, and 30 Rock, and her challenges trying to balance her life as a mother, wife, and driving force behind a network tv show.  It’s all very good, and I’d highly recommend reading or listening to Bossypants.

I’m fairly new to the world of audiobooks.  I’ve listened to a couple of them in the past, but it’s not something that I’ve full embraced until recently.  I’m listening to more podcasts, and downloading more audiobooks because I find that I simply don’t make time for myself anymore to read like I used to.  I used to be an avid reader, but over the years I’ve gotten lazy.  The audiobook is a fantastic way for me to consume the content while doing something else… driving to work, sitting at my desk, going for a walk… it’s just so easy to listen to a couple of chapters.  Granted, I’m sure that the people who prefer reading something tangible are going to like Bossypants too!  If you decide to get it through Amazon.com, you can get either the hardcover or the audio version.  It doesn’t matter.  Tina is great either way.  🙂

Time to start watching some 30 Rock!
