Thank you Megan Dougherty for giving me the best laughs I’ve had since I read a copy of The Sweet Potato Queen’s Book of Love by Jill Connor. Like Jill, Megan’s brand of humor is equally irreverent, only Megan’s subject is quilting not amor. Quilting may seem a dry subject. Yet, she proves in her new book, Quilting Isn’t Funny: A Collection of Threadful Humor by The Bitchy Stitcher, that the quilting lifestyle is very, very funny. Oh yes.
As part of her Quilting Isn’t Funny Blog Tour, I took to reading my review copy during my lunch hour, sitting demurely at my desk in a typical cube environment. LMAO hardly describes it, as I devoured chapter after chapter. I especially loved “A Quilter’s Survival Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse” and “How to Put the Spark Back into Your Quilting”. Total snort laughing. I had to remind myself that I was at work, and I should behave like the professional person they hired. Further, I fought the urge to print off copies to share with my all-male co-workers, each and every one of them brilliant programmers. The only thing that stopped me was C-O-P-Y-R-I-G-H-T. Megan trusted me with her copyrighted material, self published in PDF and soft bound.
I have the same strong desire to share this book with all of you. And luckily, I can do it L-E-G-A-L-L-Y, because I’m part of Megan’s Quilting Isn’t Funny Blog Tour. All participants get to give away a copy of her book to one of their readers. So, stay tuned, as my giveaway will be in a separate post that will go out later today. Don’t miss any of the stops in the tour, see the schedule below:
You can visit Megan on her blog, The Bitchy Stitcher, anytime. Enjoy!
