Countdown: My 7th Favorite Read This Year Is…

by BLH on December 22nd, 2013

We’re counting down the days left until we run out of time for our Kickstarter project, and we desperately need your support to launch. I’m also counting down my ten favorite reads this year. My 7th favorite read has odd doodles and killer geese. Read on to find out that my 7th favorite read this year was…

Hyperbole and a Half, Allie Brosh

If you’re a reader of the laugh-out-loud hilarious blog Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh, then you’ve probably already grabbed up this book. Brosh’s fans are devoted, and for good reason; there’s just something hilariously apt about her crude drawings matched with her sophisticated sense of humor. Her observations about life, from procrastination to wild goose attacks to depression, are spot on. Doubtless you’ll find yourself identifying with something she writes about here; and you’ll find the drawings to create a killer sense of pacing. Hyperbole is not quite a novel, and not quite a comic book, but its delightful pairing of deadpan humor, bald honesty, and yes, very funny little drawings, is truly unique. You’ll want to pick this one up for yourself or for someone else in your life.

Stay tuned for the rest of the list, and Donate to our Kickstarter project today!

    I must check out this blog. Maybe blogging is something a girl like me could do. I could not possibly write about my actual, boring life, but I suppose I could make up adventures & then divine great truths from having gone through them. And like this woman, I’m depressed!

    But mostly I want to urge all you slugs out there who read THIS blog to send some bucks to BLH’s kickstarter project if you have not done so yet.

    The amount has been stuck at $281 for awhile now, so COME ON! It’s super easy, you can pay thru your Amazon account, & 5 bucks won’t kill you.

    Otherwise, we have to read the same first paragraph for the next 17 days…

    And seriously, hasn’t this blog been good to you for the last mfmhf years? You’ve seen your name in print in ‘Mailbag,’ you’ve avoided terrible pitfalls thanks to BLH’s instruction, you’ve gotten back on track thanks to the Always New Tuesday Feature…

    So contribute some money. We can all submit our stuff there for publication–she’ll owe us…
