24 Days of Christmas Books: An Idiot Girl's Christmas

idiot girl's christmas laurie notaroAn Idiot Girl's Christmas: True Tales from the Top of the Naughty List by Laurie Notaro is a new-to-me discovery. Published in 2005, it's a collection of ten essays of Christmas mishaps. Three of the essays had been previously published but seven new ones sounds like a pretty good ratio to me.

Unfortunately I have not yet read this and my library does not have it. (Amusingly, searching for it in my library's catalogue brings up Dr. Who: The Complete Second Series.) Luckily, Kelly at Reading and Martinis has read it. She says cannot recommend it enough and that it's laugh-out-loud funny. I'm sold.

I have a hunch that this one would be a hit for fans of Bridget Jones' Diary. I'll be looking to add some of Notaro's other books to my request list after Christmas and try to remember to throw this one into my online shopping cart before Christmas 2012.
