Dear Tina,

Oh Tina, say it isn't so! I didn't want to have to do this, but I just can't lie... your book sucked. But you don't care. In your book, you talked about how haters are going to hate. One chapter was even tittled, I Don't Care If You Like It. So, feel free to stop reading now.

I couldn't help but smile as I read the "reviews" on the back cover:
  • "Totally worth it!" - trees
  • "Tina Fey is an ugly, pear-shaped, overrated troll." - The internet
  • "Absolutely delicious!" - A guy who eats books
But that is where the fun stopped. Maybe I set myself up for disappointment... Myabe I just assumed that it was as genius as your show... Or maybe, writing books just isn't your thing.

I did laugh out loud once. Just once. "In September, my daughter was born. (For the record: epidural, vaginal delivery, did not poop on the table.)" You can always make me laugh when it comes to labor and poop. Except of course, if it happens to me - then it is def. not funny.

I can say though, that after reading each chapter, I wanted to throw the book out set the book aside and turn on my Netflix to 30 Rock reruns. I don't know how it is possible to have such a fantastic show (that you write for and star in - you go girl!) and not have the same comical genius in a book.

I guess the one thing I am thankful for is that I didn't pay for this book (unless you count my tax dollars as payment). It is due back at the library in a couple of days, and I'm ready to wipe my hands clean. The next time I'm looking for something comical, I'll stick with David Sedaris.
