Woohoo! I won "Bright Lights, Big Ass" and "Bitter is the New Black" on eBay a week and a half ago and they finally got here! Now, if only I could find "Such a Pretty Fat". Her books are hard to find, even in bookstores around here! I must not be the only one who loves chick lit!

I have all three of her books, they're hilarious. I check out her website about once a week, pretty funny stuff on there too.

She also tends to release her books right around my birthday. The next book, Pretty in Plaid is due out this May. Happy birthday to me!!!! :)

Hope you enjoy your new books!

Thank you for that link! The pic of her dog in the flower pot cracks me up!

I haven't read anything by her, but I'll have to see about finding them. They sound great!

I read Bitter is the New Black last month. I usually read fiction, so I was hesitant to read it. Then I saw a link to her blog, read it and decided to read the books. Hilarious.

I love her! I can't wait for her next one. She is one I do not wait for here on PBS. I always pre order her books.

I am number 580-something for Such a Pretty Fat, but I might not be able to wait!

I'm sure it's available on B&N.com or Amazon.

I finally got her latest book through here (took me forever but I finally moved up the list!) now to read it so I can then repost it and let someone else enjoy her books

They are, by far, the funniest books I've ever read. I have never laughed so hard reading a book. I'm still waiting for Such a Pretty Fat.

OMG, I just looked up Jen Lancaster and her 2009 book is already in the system! "Pretty in Plaid" I think (I mean, there are already people WAITING for it, not that it's available). I'm #76 already! I guess if she knew that, maybe she'd be happy!

Lol...Heather, I am number 46! I got on right after I read Bitter is the New Black. Hadn't even cracked the pages of Bright Lights, Big Ass! And, thanks to Kristina, I am know obsessive about checking her blog!

I;'ve got a copy of bright lights, big ass as well as such a pretty fat by Jen Lancaster.

I'd like to send them to the same person to save on postage.

Plese send me a PM if you'd like them both and we can work that out.

Thanks!
