Like most people I really look forward to the weekend.  It is a time when I can step away from work and do things for myself.  Most of my week days are filled with sitting in front of multiple computer screens and reading work-related items: emails, articles, researching various ideas to bring to Swaggernauts, reading comments from all of you throughout the Swagbucks blog, facebook, twitter and elsewhere.  But the weekend is when I can read for pleasure.  This weekend I will be enjoying Let’s Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir) by Jenny Lawson, the Swagbucks Book Club reading selection for April.  If you are not familiar with this title yet, here is a synopsis:

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. 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.

I hope you will join us on Friday, April 25th at 10am PT here in the blog to discuss this title.

Jenny Larson made a name for herself through her blog: The Bloggess.  So my question for you today: What blogs (other than this one, of course!) do you read for pleasure and find value in?  Share your finds in the comments below and not only will fellow Book Clubbers be exposed to new and exciting blogs but on Monday I will choose 5 people to randomly hook up with 25 Swag Bucks each!  Please include the name of the blog, a link, and why you like it.

Happy Reading!
