Saying “yes” doesn’t mean I don’t know how to say no, and saying “please” doesn’t mean I am waiting for permission.

Amy Poehler is hosting a dinner party and you’re invited! Welcome to the audiobook edition of Amy Poehler’s Yes Please. The guest list is star-studded with vocal appearances from Carol Burnett, Seth Meyers, Michael Schur, Patrick Stewart, Kathleen Turner, and even Amy’s parents—Yes Please is the ultimate audiobook extravaganza.

Also included? A one night only live performance at Poehler’s Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. Hear Amy read a chapter live in front of a young and attractive Los Angeles audience.

While listening to Yes Please, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll become convinced that your phone is trying to kill you. Don’t miss this collection of stories, thoughts, ideas, lists, and haikus from the mind of one of our most beloved entertainers. Offering Amy’s thoughts on everything from her “too safe” childhood outside of Boston to her early days in New York City, her ideas about Hollywood and “the biz,” the demon that looks back at all of us in the mirror, and her joy at being told she has a “face for wigs”—Yes Please is chock-full of words, and wisdom, to live by.


book-review

What I’ll write is how this book made me feel when I read it.

Blogger Tag: The Secret Life of a Book Blogger

SECRET

Thanks to Raven, Ana, and Ajoobacats that tagged me to do The Secret Life of a Book Blogger. If you don’t know about thei blog, you should go visit them and read thei awesome posts and book reviews.


1. How long have you been a blogger?
I just recently started blogging on March. So, around 4 months.

2. At what point do you think you will stop? 
I have no idea. Maybe when books aren’t my thing anymore, or when I can’t keep up with the technology anymore.

3. What is the best thing?
Since I don’t have many friends understanding my love for books, I found that blogging really helps me connect with other bookworm and fangirls.

4. What is the worst thing?
Writing a post when having a slump.

5. How long does it take you to find/create pictures for your post?
A few minutes, I’ve saved pictures and gifs in categories so it won’t be hard to find them.

6. Who is your book crush?
My latest book crush is Ezra Mason from Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.

7. What author would you like to have on your blog? 
I really wished the Brothers Grimm is still alive . . .

8. What do you wear when you write your blog posts?
I usually write a post at night so most of the time I wear PJs while writing.

9. How long does it take you to prepare?
Mostly an hour for me to write reviews. But for Tags and Challenges that require mind twisting answers, probably more.

10. How do you feel about the book/blogger community/culture? 
Love love it. Like I said, having people to share things about books is really amazing.

11. What do you think one should do to get a successful blog?
Personally, I categorized a blog as successful when it’s updated regularly and have originality in the posts. But I do recommend bloggers to relax and enjoy the world of blogging and write from their heart.
