One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories by B.J. Novak 3/5
A book of short stories by that writer/actor from The Office.  Some of the stories are very, very short.  Overall, they are creative and have an element of surprise.  I really enjoyed reading this.

Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man's Fundamentals for Delicious Living by Nick Offerman 3/5
I liked listening to this book read by Nick Offerman (AKA Ron Swanson from Parks and Rec.)  He's interesting and funny.  He told about his childhood and how he got started in show business.  He's also fairly vulgar.  I didn't realize that he's married to Megan Mullally, who played his ex-wife on Parks and Rec.  It's funny how in many ways, he's a lot like his Ron Swanson character.  He has woodworking skills and likes to be out in nature.

Too bad about Nick Offerman being vulgar. :( I hate that so many celebrities/actors are! It's as if it's just part of the acting culture.

I knew that about his wife--they married later in life, I believe. And she's older than him. Did you know that The Douche is Amy Poehler's boyfriend in real life? Or at least he was--who knows on the current status.

Haha I was just reading the description of that book and realized, duh, you now know a lot more than me about Offerman and Mullally. :P So ignore my fun facts.
