My Fair Lazy: One Reality Television Addict's Attempt to Discover If Not Being a Dumb Ass Is the New Black, or A Culture-up Manifesto

My Fair Lazy: One Reality Television Addict's Attempt to Discover If Not Being A Dumb Ass Is the New Black, or, a Culture-Up Manifesto - Jen Lancaster I think Jen is losing her edge and I mean that in a good way. She is now a female version of A. J. Jacobs on her quest to find the answers to life's questions. This book shows the importance of how an education is never complete. I have to admit I am not a huge reality television fan, but I now have to watch some of her favorite shows just to keep up with her blog. One disappointment with this book is -- NO PICTURES. I thought that those sly photos on her blog just make the stories that much more effective. And yes, I know a book is nothing like a blog, but I have to get my fix of Jen in at least a monthly dose or I become depressed. If you enjoy sarcasm, this is the book for you, all other steer clear.
