Beach Reading

I know, why is this lunatic talking about beach reading at this time of year?  Well, I am sure many of you have a spring vacation planned (like me!) and are looking for a good book to read!  Plus, summer is not that far away so you can start planning!

When I read a book on the beach, I like to keep things light and fun - kind of like the beach environment.  I have a whole other list of my 'beach reading requirements' that you might want to check out on one of my previous posts, Beach Reading Tips.


The book I just read definitely qualifies for a beach read - in fact, I should have saved it for my trip!  Oh well!  I just finished reading Seriously... I'm Kidding by Ellen DeGeneres.  The book was laugh out loud funny and if you are a fan of her, (like I am), you will enjoy the typical Ellen humor.

This book does not tell a story but is more of a collection of Ellen's experiences along with observations of all the wacky things people do.  I loved all her crazy little tangents, witty remarks and general silliness.  She bounces all over the place but manages to keep your attention with her humor and charming personality.  I could hear her voice coming through the pages and adored all her hilarious comments.


Ellen is a person who is not afraid to be herself.  That's something we all need to be reminded to do!
Not only do I love Ellen's humor and the fact that she is a Bachelor AND Keith Urban fan, but I also admire her as a person.  She genuinely cares about the world we live in - and she is an animal lover too!

And not only does Ellen love animals,
but animals seem to love her too!

Apparently, Rosie is also a fan!

Now that I finished Seriously...I'm Kidding, I am going to go back and read the rest of Ellen's books.  I think I will also add Bossypants by Tina-Fey to my beach bag.  I have been wanting to read that for awhile.

Have you read any of Ellen's books?
Can you recommend any good books
for my beach bag?

  2. Loved both bossy pants and Ellen's book. I listened to them on my ipod) while driving to the ranch. I was going to follow back, but didn't see a way to do that.

  3. Anyone who loves animals is a friend of mine :) And Ellen is so real (and funny) I'm such a fan. I haven't read her book though, I'll have to put that on my ever-growing list!

  4. I haven't read any of Ellen's books but she cracks me up so much I think it would be fun. You are right, she's not afraid to be herself and that makes her pretty special in the world today.
