(24) My Horizontal Life by Chelsea Handler


I stood by for years and watched this book fly off of the shelf. Our model for this book was crazy high, an indication that it sells. I just didn't want to spend money on the book.

I am kind of glad that I didn't buy the book. Don't get me wrong, My Horizontal Life was nothing if not entertaining. If you have even seen a clip of her show, you know that she is, um, uninhibited. She holds nothing back. That is exactly what she was when writing her book. Uninhibited.

I admit that I laughed out loud more than once, so much in one section, it caused my husband to declare that he was going to start a blog to document my reactions when reading books. (HaHa!)

But it still was not funny enough for me to declare she is the funniest woman alive. Nor was it funny enough for me to rush right over to bn.com to buy her next book. But I did just put it on hold at the library.

If you are looking for a few laughs, check it out. You will enjoy the book. But if you blush easily or are easily offended, you might want to skip this book. The book is exactly as the title suggests. And then some.

I liked this book, but like you I don't know that she's the funniest woman. I haven't rushed to buy or read her other book either. While this book intrigued me, as I am a minimal drinker, the title of her other book doesn't draw me in.

That is the way I feel. I am not rushing out to read her second book.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
