Better dig out the old reading software from elementary school to test your speed because you’re going to need it. You’re going to have to get a new set of reading glasses and a battery for your book light. Grab a coaster before you put that drink on your night stand. Lena Dunham’s first book filled with words of wisdom, “Not that Kind of Girl,” hits shelves Sept. 30, just in time for fans (I’m raising my hand) to read it and switch gears because Amy Poehler’s “Yes Please” flies into a book store near you less than one month later, Oct. 28.
I guess Leslie Knope’s taking a break from rewriting the definitive history of Pawnee, Ind. to jot some words on paper for HarperCollins. Hopefully Tina Fey’s “Bossy Pants” success has rubbed off on Poehler after hosting the Golden Globes for two straight years. If “Yes Please” is merely a book filled with secrets from the backstage of the Globes, I’ll be jubilant. I’ve heard it’s much more.
As for Dunham, it’s time to find out which real stories from “Girls” are hers and which are her friends’. Also, can I get a poster of the “Yes Please” cover to hang above my bed? I’d love that.
