THE PRINCESS DIARIST by Carrie Fisher

Carrie Fisher is an actress, a geek icon, and a professional screw-up who does not hold back from her audience. She calls herself the product of “Hollywood incest” and never fails to find the humor in her life. My nerdy little heart can’t take the anticipation that is leading up to the publication of The Princess Diarist. Its secrets must be pretty juicy, as no one has yet been granted access to the book. In any case, it’s sure to be full of the wit and self-deprecation we expect from our foul-mouthed princess.                                                                —Ivy

THE DAILY SHOW (THE BOOK) by Chris Smith

If you miss seeing Jon Stewart’s charming smirk on your television every evening, you will love this book. The foreword is written by Jon Stewart and the book has behind-the-scenes interviews with many of the show’s legendary reporters. It pays homage to the careers it jump-started and highlights many of the show’s most famous moments. It also serves as a nostalgic look at the only good thing about Bush’s presidency: The Daily Show’s coverage of it.        —Jade

LOOSE LIPS by Amy Stephenson & Casey A. Childers

Never have my expectations been so overwhelmingly, gratifyingly fulfilled. Is this book a fabulous introduction to the fan-fiction event Shipwreck? Is it so alluring a book that I am already planning a visit to witness Shipwreck for myself? Yes, absolutely. Is it chock full of erotica written by a variety of authors (including John Scalzi!), with a hilarious number of euphemisms for the human anatomy? Oh my, yes. Check it out; I bet you’ll be saying “yes” faster than you thought.                              —Jax

Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson

Jenny Lawson (Let’s Pretend This Never Happened) does not like to hold back. She will be the first to tell you that she’s crazy. And she is. For most of her life, she has dealt with mental illness. She suffers from depression, anxiety, and a variety of other disorders and she has found that writing is one of the things that helps her survive. She also happens to be one of the funniest people in the world. Luckily for her (and for us), she has written another book. It is a roller-coaster ride through Lawson’s amazing head or, as she says, “a compendium on ‘how-to-thrive-in-spite-of-your-brain-being-a-real-bastard.’” She somehow manages to candidly address the debilitating diseases of depression and anxiety while making you pee your pants laughing. Yes, that’s what I said. I don’t know how she does it, but I’m glad she does. Don’t believe me? Join us at our event with Lawson on Friday, December 4th.  --George
