I recently finished reading the book “Bossypants” by Tina Fey. My sweet-and-salty husband saw it on the bookshelves and got it for me. It’s hilarious.

It’s been a long time since I laughed out loud while reading a book, but Fey – a comedienne and former writer for Saturday Night Live, and current 30 Rock cast member – turns nearly every sentence of her memoirs into a joke. Even the book jacket is funny.

She writes about being a kid, being a mom, being a boss, meeting Sarah Palin, working in show biz and other stuff – but, in my (admittedly too-serious) opinion, too little about being a mom. Maybe she was trying to avoid being filed away in the “mommy” genre, maybe she just didn’t want to expose her family to too much public scrutiny, but I would have liked to have read a little bit more about Tina Fey, the mom.

Besides, we moms can use all the humor we can get.

Have you read the book? What didja think? Make you laugh?
