Although I haven’t been blogging my reviews as frequently, I’ve still been listening to my audio books. I did have a period of time where I was listening to The Cure a lot, but I’m back in the game. It’s coming on summer and I’m keeping myself busy with crafts when I’m not at Ye Olde Bookworks. And right off the bat, life was extra amazing as I listened to Stephen Colbert’s I Am America (And So Can You!)
I’m back to being too busy for the Daily Show and the Colbert Report, so how perfect is it that I can listen to Stephen wherever I go?! It is seriously as hilarious as listening to stand-up comedy… another of my kryptonites. I was laughing so hard as I walked into town, I had to look insane. I don’t recommend running while you listen to it, you may hyperventilate.
I Am America (And So Can You!) is available both as a book and as a recording read by the author — each serving as yin to the other’s yang. Why try to imagine Colbert speaking the words on the page when, for a few dollars more, you can actually experience it?
I couldn’t have said it better. This audio truly is solid gold. For all those college kids driving back home from school on those long road trips, I Am America (And So Can You!). This isn’t one for the tiny tots. It’s late night topics and some suggestive language. Just like his show, but the book has a whole section on dating… imagine where that goes!
I wish I had more than two thumbs, but I guess the two I have will have to suffice, and they’re both pointed skyward. A+ Mr. Colbert. Well done.
