NonFiction: Let's Pretend this Never Happened by Jenny Lawson
Full title: Let's Pretend this Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir When Jenny Lawson was little, all she ever wanted was to fit in. That dream was cut short by her fantastically unbalanced father and a morbidly eccentric childhood. It did, however, open up an opportunity for Lawson to find the humor in the strange shame-spiral that is her life, and we are all the better for it. In the irreverent Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson’s long-suffering husband and sweet daughter help her uncover the surprising discovery that the most terribly human moments—the ones we want to pretend never happened—are the very same moments that make us the people we are today. For every intellectual misfit who thought they were the only ones to think the things that Lawson dares to say out loud, this is a poignant and hysterical look at the dark, disturbing, yet wonderful moments of our lives.

What we're about

This group is for those individuals who constantly read book after book, page after page, yet after that last sentence is finished, they are left with nobody to share it all with. Share what exactly? All that knowledge, all those insights, and all the experiences one has between the covers of a book. None of it should be kept inside and lost to the larger community. Through gathering we, the Readers, can delve deeper into books with he hope of finding what they may have to offer us.
