I got way off my streak of alternating fiction and non-fiction books. So it was nice to read an entertaining non-fiction book, especially with as crazy as life has been lately. Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling was an easy read and funny. Like her first book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, I can actually hear her voice since a) I watch (and love) her show and b) she has a very distinctive voice and personality. And I totally mean that in a good way.
Similar to Rob Lowe’s book of stories – one of my favorites – it is entertaining to me to hear personal stories of celebrities. It creates a sense, albeit false sense, of knowing that person, which for most people is not a reality with celebrities. So maybe it’s a shallow love of these books, but it’s pure entertainment. Non-fiction that reads like fiction. Check it out, especially if you like Mindy Kaling. Good pool/beach read!
