Dear stranger who made my whole day:

Dear anonymous stranger in the car ahead of me who paid for my breakfast:

You made my whole morning brighter and you inspired me to pay for the next person behind me.  Which actually made me feel even better, which is the nicest thing ever but it’s also sort of weird because the gift you gave me is basically you giving me a reason to give a gift to someone else.  Now my head hurts from the circularness, but it’s totally worth it.

When I got home I got a small, unexpected box of audio books from my publisher to celebrate winning an Audie award so I’m giving them out randomly to people who want them.  Want one?  Just leave a comment telling me if you want Furiously Happy or Let’s Pretend This Never Happened.

  2. I’d love a copy of Furiously Happy. It’s gotten me through some tough times.

  3. You are awesome and I love you too! I’d love to hear you reading Furiously Happy! It’d make my day. Thank you for making me feel like I belong!

  4. Dude, I had that happen to me at Dunkin Donuts recently. Very confusing experience. “She paid for you,” said the teller at the drive-up window while pointing to the car ahead of me. I was so flabbergasted, I didn’t even think to pay for the person behind me. (I did so the next time I returned, however.) Pay it forward, people!

    No need to enter me in the giveaway. Just felt like sharing. 🙂

  5. I would love an audiobook format of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. I already purchased Furiously Happy in audiobook form, and absolutely love it.

  6. I would love “Let’s Pretend”. Now I will go do something nice for someone..

  7. I would love a copy of Furiously Happy!

  8. I’d love Let’s Pretend This Never Happened! This way I can make my husband finally experience your work.

    I would love “Let’s Pretend this Never Happened” which is the family motto it seems!

  10. I would love “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened”! 🙂 🙂

  11. I would love Furiously Happy. I could use a book to listen to on my long drive to work that would force me to occasionally pull over on the side of road with laughter. Pulling over on the side of the road might enable me to also share your book with the various moose, bears, rabbits and grouse I see on my way to work in Vermont and expand your audience.

  12. Lets Pretend! 🙂

  13. I’d love a copy of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened! I loved listening to Furiously Happy. It’s awesome that you’re paying it forward!

    Ooooh! I would love a copy of “Let’s Pretend This Never Happens”
    I pass along your books to everyone I can at the library I work at. I love your happiness even while you fight other feelings inside. I feel ya.

  15. I would LOVE a copy of Furiously Happy!! My roommate and I take turns reading it to each other in the car, and it would be great to have an audio version so I don’t actually have to talk. Because talking is the worst, and I would rather work on subversive cross stitch in the passenger seat.

  16. It happened to me too!
    I guess I didn’t get the memo, but faith in humanity restored!!
    But now I’m curious…Who are these people?

  17. OOH! Just got done listening to the Furiously Happy audio-book for the 3rd, yes, 3rd time. Still on hold at my library for Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. If I get it, I promise to pay it forward. 🙂 Also, your voice, in writing and in my ear, helps keep a smile on my face. Thanks and congrats on your award!

  18. I would love a copy of Furiously Happy!!

  19. I’d love a copy of Let’s Pretend! And I never understood how the paying for someone behind you thing works. Do you just leave a $10 and hope it covers them? I always feel the need to overthink it – what if there are kids in the back I don’t see? What if they’re offended I left too little? What if I left too much? GAH!

  20. I would LOVE Let’s Pretend This Never Happened!!!!!

  21. I’ve love a copy of LET’S PRETEND THIS NEVER HAPPENED… because I can’t seem to read very far in the hardcover edition before I’m laughing, crying, gasping for breath, and generally making a medical nuisance of myself.

    Perhaps an audiobook version will keep me from hyperventilating and needing a defibrillator.

  22. I want Furiously Happy! Small kindnesses multiply. Sometimes the smallest gestures can make our day 🙂

    I would love Let’s Pretend this Never Happened. I am going on a two-day road trip next week to visit my dad who has terminal cancer. It would be great to have something uplifting to listen to.

  27. I’d love a copy of Let’s Pretend! Glad your day was made by a stranger – it’s the small things in life that are awesome.

  28. Love the dollies in the background! I would love Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. It was so awesome to meet you in person on the Furiously Happy tour, even though you never would have guessed by how quiet I was. I’m rather shy and was so proud of myself for going to the signing by myself. 🙂

  29. I used to do that with tolls back before the days of iPass in Illinois. I would pay for the person behind me because one time someone did it for me, and it just became a thing I did. I love the idea of buying someone’s coffee!

    Also, I’d love furiously happy!

  37. And I know what you mean about the person ahead of you paying making your day. I use a coffee app on my smartphone, so I get points and free coffee rewards — and I usually let a few of them accumulate, and then sit in the coffeeshop and pay for every other car in the driveway until I use them up. It feels good. It’s awesome to see the look of unexpected surprise on their face.

  42. I would love to listen to you read Let’s Pretend This Never Happened!

  43. I already own both your books. But what I DO want is for the Blythes to stop staring creepily at me. (Also? When I’m having a stinky stupid day, I buy either the person’s meal behind me at the drive thru, or a sandwich for the first homeless person I come across. It always make me selfishly happy.)

    I love your audio – perfect combination of quotidian, crazy and hilarity in your voice. I know a dear person who is one of 3 people in the world who was great and humane and funny at being an HR director. She is in recovery from C and I think laughing at and with your observations in Let’s Pretend will beat the C into surrender. Thank you for what you write and read out loud.

    Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. I have already read and loved Furiously Happy.

  58. This is wonderful. I’m having a really tough time off of my anxiety meds, and was struggling to get out of bed this morning, but this made me smile! 🙂

  59. I would LOVE furiously happy.It would make my long drive to work and sitting in traffic less of a personal hell. If I win, I will send it to whoever wants it next! I’m all about sharing the love!

  60. I’ll take either. Or both. Or Hyperbole and a Half, if you’ve got it.

    The thing about the whole pay it forward chain thing…like, what if you order one drink and the person behind you is ordering for the whole office? So instead of paying $5 for your drink you’re supposed to pay $30 for theirs? What do you do at that point? Just be the a-hole and slowly slink away?

  72. I’m a new fan and would love a copy of either. Thank you!

  73. I CAN’T CHOOSE BETWEEN THE TWO! They’re both so good! I haven’t read Let’s Pretend This Never Happened in a while so I would love to revisit it with your voice 🙂

  74. I’d love “Let’s Pretend this never happened”

  75. I would love either one! I was recently introduced to your blog and have been addicted ever since!!

    I want either. Because I love both and I’m not picky. 🙂

  77. I would love a copy of Furiously Happy! Would love to put this on repeat during our adult only trip to Disney World this fall with my aunt and cousin!

  78. ANYTHING you wanna send me! You rock 😉

  79. Furiously Happy, please!

  80. I already have a copy of LPTNH. You actually commented on it when you signed it for me in Cambridge on this most recent tour. I stalked it on the interwebz until I found an affordable copy. And I love it! But I would love a Furiously Happy if you have an extra. More Rory in the world is never a bad thing.

    I do this every morning at the drive thru and it’s amazing how it freaks people out! The cashier is the same person every morning so she’s used to it, but she loves to tell me the responses of the people from the day before. They’re sometimes so confused they argue with her and she says she just tells them “it’s her thing, she does it every day, don’t worry about it!!” Just to calm them the heck down. I’ve even had people follow me all the way to work to tell me I don’t know them – assuming I made a mistake. Sometimes it’s hard to just do a little nice thing because people just aren’t used to it. That’s really sad. 😕

  82. I would love a copy of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened!
    I love reading you – it would be lovely to listen to you too!!

  83. I’d love to have either one!

  84. I would love a copy of Furriously Happy. My daughter was also recently started on medication for her Generalized anxiety disorder and Panic Disorder. She has hijacked my copy of Furiously Happy. She is very upset that she had to go on medication and feels like she failed herself. It breaks my heart, both as a mom and a fellow survivor. I would love to have this so we can listen to it when we are in the car together.

    Furiously Happy! Very cool re: the breakfast thing. People don’t always suck, ha.

  92. I’d love to hear you reading Furiously Happy – I kinda need it right now, to help me get out of the depths. As usual you remain amazing. The whole community remains amazing. I think if I’m ever going to come out of hiding, it will be here.

  93. Furiously Happy!!!!! 🙂

  97. Let’s pretend this never happened!

    My wife got me a signed copy of Furiously Happy for Christmas (thanks for signing, by the way), but I decided to go back and read Let’s Pretend first for background. So, if you still have any, I’d love a Furiously Happy, because that will not only enable me to keep my signed copy pristine and lovely, it’ll be a lot easier and safer to get through on my hour-long-each-way commute each day.

  103. Oooo! I would looove a copy of “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” but it’s also on my wish list. My print copies have gone on to live at other people’s homes, and I miss them.

  117. Hi, Jenny – someone paid for my latte at Starbucks a few months back, and I passed on the gift at the time; but now I want to go out and buy a coffee for someone – it’s such an easy way to spread some happy. I wonder why I don’t do it more often.

    If you’ve still got a copy of “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” I’d be overjoyed to have it. That book changed the course of my life when I met a mysterious stranger on the bus because I was laughing so loudly. I’d love to laugh hard enough by myself in my car to cause a few double-takes during rush hour.

    Hi Jenny!! What a lovely way to start the day!! I would love Let’s Pretend This Never Happened , please and thank you! 🙂

  125. You. Are. Awesome. I basically live by the word of Beyonce, the giant metal chicken. Pick your fucking battles. We all love your creative genius and I’m so happy every time I see you’ve got a new post. I’d love to have Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, but if not I still wanted to let you know You Rock.

  126. Furiously Happy! Because I didn’t get enough strangers looking at me funny when I was listening to Let’s Pretend in the car – it must have been 9 or 10 times through the whole book when I was driving back and forth for hours dealing with mum’s death. I loved reading Furiously Happy but need the audio book because reading and driving is frowned upon. Plus your voice makes it SO much better.

  127. I would love a copy of Furiously Happy! I’ve bought book versions as gifts for 3 friends, but don’t have my own copy!!

  128. I’d love a copy of Furiously Happy!

  129. I would love, love, love Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, pleaseandthankyou. I laughed out loud way more on that one and would like to be able to revisit that experience via audiobook. (I did this with A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel. HIGHY recommend that book to you, Jenny, and to all readers of books everywhere. The audiobook is way better because Haven Kimmel reads it and since she’s telling her own stories it’s a riot. I often play it on my iPod in random and am shocked at how many times I can cry laughing at the same story over…and over… I feel confident LPTNH would lend itself to the same kind of good times.

  130. I’d love a copy of “Let’s Pretend”, as I already own “Furiously Happy” 🙂

  131. I’d love a copy of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. I let a friend borrow mine…forever I guess..lol.

  132. Ahhh! Strangers that pass on happiness make the world better. I’d love either honestly as I’ve never done the audio book thing, but probably Furiously Happy if I had to choose. No…Let’s Pretend This Never happened. No….Furiously Happy. No….definitely Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. Okay….Furiously Happy. Final decision. Probably. Gah! Stop being so awesome..it’s hard to decide. Wait…never stop being so awesome. THAT is my final decision. Please and thank you.

  133. Aw, today is definitely your day. 🙂 People around here tend to “pay it forward,” too. It is amazing how small gestures can make a person’s day.

  136. Furiously Happy! That book made my year and I love your voice!

  137. Furiously Happy, please. And now I will go do something nice for someone else. We could theoretically fix the entire world like this!!

  138. I would be happy with either, but either way I will have them both if not through this then by my own doing, so that’s a win win in my book circularly speaking. I’m just glad to read whatever you write, its like therapy for me.

  161. I love doing that at the drive through. It makes me feel good to (hopefully) brighten someone’s day. I try to do it every couple months.

    I’d love to listen to Furiously Happy. Audiobooks are the only way I have time to read these days.

  162. I would LOVE either one! It’s been longer since Let’s Pretend, though, so let’s say that one.

  167. I would LOVE a Let’s Pretend audio book! So glad that you had such a happy morning – those can be hard to come by, and it is so great when they happen.

  170. If there are any left, I’d totally love Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, as I already have Furiously Happy. 🙂 If there aren’t, no worries whatsoever. 🙂

  171. I’d love Furiously Happy! I have a friend who I feel like really needs it right now.

    You and a random stranger are awesome. 🙂

  175. Yes Please! I would love Furiously Happy and now I need to go give something away or offer some other act of kindness to stay in the circleness of it all! xo ~ Susan

    I would love a copy of whatever you have to give away as a gift for my wife. We saw you in Toronto and it would be super awesome to have a permanent source of extra funny to share with each other.

    Also, I’ve totally had that happen too. It really does make your whole day better. The cashier said I was the fifteenth person to get paid for in the line. I don’t know how long it kept up after me but I hope it was lots!

    Furiously Happy! Because I am Furiously Happy that you are doing this!

  178. Boy, Jenny, I was up all last night in the grip of a terror/depression chokehold so tight that I didn’t realize it could be felt by daughter in her room across the hall. I think I might not just want, but actually need “Furiously Happy” because I need something and the wine is no longer doing it and I can’t afford a therapist.
    I’m glad that being the recipient of someone’s generosity and being able to give someone else that gift, too, helped you. I’ll do some paying it forward on a bridge toll today.

  180. I would love a copy of “Let’s Pretend.” 😀

  181. I’d love “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened”! I’ve been a lurker on here for too long, and I thought I’d finally come out from behind the curtain! ^_^

  182. I love your book, “Furiously Happy,” but I haven’t read the first one yet, “Let’s Pretend this Never Happened,” so that’s the one I would choose. I think your courage and your nuttiness have enriched the lives of so many people, mine included. I struggle, I think everyone does, but my struggles are flyspecks compared to yours, and you have helped me get in touch with gratitude for my life just the way it is, warts and all.

  183. I’d love Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, please! Love, love, LOVE that one!

    I would love either one tbh 🙂 both are on my to-read-whenever-i-can-sit-quietly list…alas, my two tiny humans usually have other plans for my time…

  185. I would love either, but maybe Let’s Pretend This Never Happened would be the best place to start. I’m going on a long (long, long, like several weeks long) road trip with my husband and I really want him to hear this. Now I wanna buy somebody breakfast.

  186. I’d love a copy of either one!

  187. I already have the audio books on my phone, so I don’t need a freebie. 🙂

    I love listening to them at work when I’m blue. You did SUCH a great job with both of them. I’m so happy you won that award.

    You have also won the “People Jenny Thinks Totally Kick Ass Award” that I give out. That would be me Jenny, not you Jenny. Although feel free to give one to yourself from yourself as well. There is no prize money or statue or anything. Just warm fuzzies. Embrace the warm fuzzies! EMBRACE THEM!!

    I would LOVE a “let’s pretend this never happened”!!!

    Oh now ur making my head hurt trying to choose just one, haha! Jk…kinda! I love both and would be furiously happy with either so surprise me, thanks! 😜

  193. Furiously happy would be wonderful 🙂

  194. I already own both, but I’d love to have either to give to my friend Lucy, who has just been through masses of stuff & could use cheering up.

    Would love EITHER, as I’m not so selfish as to demand one over the other. It’s like picking your favorite kid in front of “the other one.” And I’m a BIG believer in paying it forward. I try to do one random act of kindness a day if I can.

  196. I’LL take either book, but would prefer Furiously Happy. I haven’t bern able to get your books for my own yet. Other priorities and not enough cash. sigh

    I want Furiously Happy since I don’t have it yet!

  198. You have made me laugh harder than I thought possible. My kids now think I am weird and a tiny bit cool because of you and your wonderful “Furiously Happy!”. I would much appreciate “Let’s pretend this never happened”

  199. UGH, I have anxiety about making this choice. What if I choose badly, what if once I get one, I wish I had the other (I have both in hardcover, so that doesn’t help). Let’s go with… gahhhhhhh. “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened”

  200. I would love a chance to be “Furiously Happy!”

  201. Listening to your read your book??? Awesome. “Let’s Pretend” would be great!

  202. Furiously Happy. It definitely helped me to get help when it came to dealing with my anxiety and depression.

    Marie recently posted I’m having one (or two) of those days..

  203. I would love Furiously Happy!

  204. I loved listening to Furiously Happy. I haven’t read Let’s Pretend so I’d love to get that one! Your books make me happy.

  205. I’d love either one!!

  206. I would love a copy of “Let’s Pretend it Never Happened” to give to my sister. I listened to it and LOVED it. By relating so much to things you wrote about,you helped make me feel better about myself and I know it will do the same for her. I was going to buy her the book but it is soooo much better to hear it in your voice.

  207. You are awesome! I would love a copy of you reading “Furiously Happy” to me! (I’ve only heard it in my own head/voice.) Congratulations on your Audie!

    I’ve been trying to read Let’s Pretend since I had a baby 8 months ago. I’m about 10 pages in LOL Audiobook would be awesome!

  212. Let’s Pretend It Never Happened! I remember when I first got it, I read the bit about your cat being a rapist passing notes under the bathroom door out loud to my mom, and we were both laughing so hard we had tears streaming down/ couldn’t breath. Which probably wasn’t super safe, since she was driving at the time.

    Hi Jenny,
    What a great story!!! Kindness really rocks!! If you still have any I would love one! If not I’m just happy for all who received one! The art of asking (@amandapalmer) and the art of giving!! Kindness!
    Have a great day everyone!
    Peace,
    Doreen

  214. I had that happen too – me and my now ex were trying to get some dinner and our card came up declined – awesome dude behind us paid for our meal. We cried the whole way home…

    Anyway, if it’s even possible, I’d be interested in Let’s Pretend…

    Puppy kisses and sloth hugs for everyone!

  215. Let’s Pretend this Never Happened!

  216. The greedy part of me immediately said “BOTH, please.” Then, I heard my mom yelling about manners in my head, so if I had to choose one, it would be Furiously Happy. Please. 🙂

  217. Please, I would love either one!

  218. I DO I DO!!!!! I would love either one of them!

  219. I have them both and they’re awesome! I love it when you read me bedtime stories Jenny. It helps so much with the insomnia.

    How does the person ahead of you know how to pay? Are these psychic peeps or aliens trying to teach us the concept of generosity? Also I have both books but would really love to hear either in your voice. I found a Beyonce watering can & gave it to my daughter. She totally got it immediately even without the Knock Knock sign.

  221. I’ve already got Audible copies of both, but I’d love to get them to pass along to other!

  222. I need Furiously Happy. I would proceed to explain why in full detail but let’s just say I do. I DO. A LOT. THANKS.

  223. I alright I am like comment 173 and I doubt that I will get picked but I would love Furiously Happy. I have not had time to read it lately as there has been so many issues as of late but I would love to be able to listen to it as I drive around avoiding life.

  224. I’d love Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. Thank you for sharing the fun! I also never could quite wrap my head around paying for the person behind you. People then feel obligated to pay for the person behind them, and if they don’t, they get poo pooed on the town’s Facebook page (yeah, in my town anyway). It’s supposed to be a gesture to help the person behind you. Not to give them an obligation. Right? It’s pretty rude to force obligations on others.

  225. I would be more than happy with either!

    Adrianne C.

    Either one – I love both books!

  227. I loved Let’s Pretend This Never Happened because it sounded eerily like my own childhood and it made me feel… Well, not “normal” but certainly less alone in my weirdness. No one has ever paid for my drive thru, but I have paid for a few peoples groceries when they were obviously struggling for that last few bucks at the checkout. It’s rough out there, you do whatcha can.

  228. I would love “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened”! Nothing like freaking out strangers by laughing hysterically in my car at stoplights.

  229. I would love either one! On a related note, my kids’ school district has launched a one billion acts of kindness initiative and it’s little things like that which spread kindness exponentially. I love it! Kindness1billion.org

    I would love Furiously Happy. I had to give the book back to the library . The library refused to believe I returned it. I had to go in and show them that it was in fact there on the shelf. I knew it was the one I had just read, because it had never been read before and I kept it nice and new for the next readers😀

  232. Day…made! I’ll take either. I’ve read them both but would love to pass along!

  233. That breakfast thing happened to me a few weeks ago and it was such a nice thing to buy the breakfast of the person behind me. I’d be happy with either book but I think I’ll choose Furiously Happy! And thanks for all that you do for all of us. I hope you know what an impact you’ve had on people’s lives, not just the folks in a drive thru line.

    ohhh I would love Let’s Pretend. I want to laugh myself silly. 🙂

  235. Either one would be a treat and then some! Maybe I’ll try to do something nice for a stranger today too! ( or maybe not, we’ll see…)

  236. I would absolutely love a copy of Lets Pretend This Never Happened. I’ve never laughed harder reading a book!

  237. This makes me want to go to Starbucks and buy a gift card and leave it to pay for the next however many people in line. Love doing stuff like that! And I’d also love a copy of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened 🙂

  238. I’m now inspired to initiate a surprise kindness when I can this week. If you have any left, I would love to pass either one along to my sisters. One sis only listens to books and I can’t seem to get her to read the paper versions I’ve shared. Have a wonderful week! This is so generous of you!

    Deanna Willmon recently posted High School Graduation? Check!.

  239. It’d be awesome to own Let’s Pretend This Never Happened (Almost wrote the title on all caps which seemed… weirdly appropriate)

  240. I sometimes get the impulse to pay for the person behind me in the drive thru and it can really make my day when I do it. I would love to hear “Furiously Happy”.

  241. I used to randomly pay for the car behind me when I crossed the bridge in to DE but now I have EZPass. Buying coffee or breakfast is now on my list to pay it forward. I’d like an audiobook too because listening to happy things REALLY help with driving in Jersey.

    I love days like that!
    I would like “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened”.

    How about doing the Amazon Wish List for books paying it forward? That was AWESOME! I bought a lot and my daughter received many as well.

  243. We love you too, Jenny! What a great start to a morning.
    …I totally want Furiously Happy!

  244. I want both, but if I have to choose it’s Furiously Happy. And if I get it, I’ll buy breakfast for the guy behind me!

  245. I would like Furiously Happy!! It helped me so much with my own struggle and helped my family understand me better too!!

  246. I’d love to read them! What a special treat it would be. You’ve inspired me to do something unexpected for someone today. Bless you heart.

  247. I love your writing. I’d be excited for either book. I have a copy of Furiously Happy for myself already and I want my own copy of the other. But I’d love to give a copy of Furiously Happy to a good friend who is having a hard time dealing with her issues right now. I think it’d brighten her day and hopefully make her smile again.

  248. Just finished reading Furiously Happy, but I would love an audio copy of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened 🙂 it is the first book I have ever laughed out loud reading. Thanks for your comedy and your honesty. You inspire me to find a sense of humour in the places where it feels like there isn’t room for one <3

  249. I once listened to all of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened read aloud by my kindle in a firetower in California. I’d like to hear it read more professionally than that tiny robot that lives in my electrical book.

  250. Oh! I would love either one. I love both books, and the audiobook would just give my dog another reason to wonder about her human… not that she doesn’t already… also she can’t read…

  257. I would love a copy of “Furiously Happy” since I haven’t been able to work it in the budget yet. If I’m lucky enough to be chosen (and you don’t mind), I’d also like to share it with my neighbor. She suffers from severe depression and anxiety and is an avid reader of your blog too. Reading about how you deal with the bad days has really helped me to be more helpful to her. Thank you for that. She deserves all the awesomeness. 🙂

  270. I would love either!
    Last new year’s day, someone paid for my coffee, so I did the same for the car (which happened to be a police car) behind me. Went on my way and a short time later, saw flashing lights in my rear view. I was silently cursing my luck that I was getting pulled over, since I’d just done a nice thing and thought the world should reciprocate. Just as I was preparing to defend myself to the cop, he let me know that he was the one I’d bought coffee for and he just wanted to thank me. Oops!

  271. I’ve never had an audio book. I would love either one.

    I really want “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened.” I sent both your books to my Mom for Mother’s Day, and to my sister for Christmas. I even gave my copy of “Let’s Pretend” away at my Unitarian Universalist book exchange Sunday! My High School daughter has begun reading Furiously Happy and I found myself re-reading the chapter on doing your own audiobook. I am dying to hear you take Neil Gaiman’s advice and “Pretend Your Good At It.” One of my favorite mantras is “The world belongs to those who show up – so show up!” Thanks for “Showing Up” in so many lives! -Amy Z

  273. I am a crazy person who still buys CDs and would love a copy of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, since buying a CD copy now is prohibitively expensive 🙁 I already have Furiously Happy since I didn’t want to make the same mistake twice!

  274. I would LOVE a copy of Furiously Happy. I’ve read it but haven’t listened to it, like I have Let’s Pretend this Never Happened. It has helped me so much in approaching my own anxiety, and I know hearing it in your own voice would just give it even more meaning (and personality!). 🙂

    Random acts of kindness rock. Like seriously, coffee snorting out your nose awesomeness. Oh wait, that would probably hurt and maybe burn a little to have coffee blow out your nose. I digress… I’d be happy to have “let’s pretend” on audio so I can hear you tell about the turkey at school. I promise to laugh so hard that coffee shoots out my nose and I can report back on the pain level

    Furiously Happy. I keep getting it from the library, but since I read so slowly and get interrupted all the time, I’ve never finished it. I do have a 40 min commute every day and I’m sure it would make my commute much more enjoyable.

  289. Furiously happy! Sweet!

  290. Yes, Please!

  291. Furiously Happy. I think my husband would enjoy it thoroughly on our next road trip!

  292. I just finished Furiously Happy, so in order to complete my life, I NEED Let’s Pretend….help me!

  293. Sorry, I failed to enter my email address befor posting.

  294. I’d want both 😂

    But Furiously Happy makes me just that, so I’d go for that one!

    I’d love Lets Pretend This Never Happened! I’ve read it four times now but I think it’s missing your voice to really make everything as bold as it should be. Love it and you! Paying forward in the drive thru is one of my favorite things to do, particularly in the morning. I feel like if I can help start someone’s day off a little better, then why not? Maybe it’ll save one more relationship, prevent one more accident or an angry email or text. Or maybe just make someone’s day a little better. It’s all a win.

  297. I wanted to buy several copies of “Lets Pretend” for friends but Amazon said “not available” and no EBay either. Please send me one copy and the good news that I can buy some more before Christmas, at least. Love you! Bought my own ‘Beyonce’ after your experience. She is smaller than yours and hangs out in my kitchen between the fruit bowl and an erratic toaster oven. Under your influence, I recently added a serious black metal alligator to my inanimate animals collection. It is settled in the back yard and hopefully scares squirrels who make a mess of the garden and raccoons who come to eat the squirrels and menace the indoor cats through the glass door.

  298. I would love a copy of Furiously Happy! It has really inspired me to embrace the uniqueness of my brain and quirky way it thinks. It is a wonderful book that made me feel a little less lonely when the straight jacket of depression and/or anxiety slips over me. Regardless, I want to thank you for sharing your story and inspiring others to be furiously happy 🙂

If you could spare a copy of “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened,” I would have another copy to share when it seems appropriate. Thank you so much for all you do!

  302. I’d love Furiously Happy! I keep loaning my 2 (hard) copies out to folks who need to hear your message. So now, I need to hear the message straight from you. 🙂

  303. Furiously happy since that describes my last few weeks at the high school where I teach. I’m currently not “feeling the love”, but your book would be the equivalent of paying for my drive-thru experience.

  304. Either would completely make my day! But “Let’s Pretend” is my favorite.

  305. I want Furiously Happy…so bad…I have been meaning to get it and just haven’t yet…please. Pick me Pick me..ok I know that is annoying…but Pick me! 🙂

  306. I’d love to listen to Furiously Happy!

  307. I’d love to hear LET’S PRETEND THIS NEVER HAPPENED. 😃 I love that your morning was “made” by whomever paid for your breakfast, and then you paid for the breakfast of the people behind you. My husband LET us go to get a FANCY coffee last Saturday and was bitching about the price when I said to leave a tip. I explained how people spread the love there, and he should just shut the fuck up and spread love and kindness too. Then I added how people often buy drinks for people behind them and they pass along the favor and it’s a big circle of love. He called it a circle of bullshit and shook his head. So I’m glad that your Breakfast Kindness spread to you and now you’re spreading more live with audio book giveaways. I’ve NEVER listened to an audio book because I have a disorder that makes me dizzy and probably kind of deadly, so luckily I only have to drive a mile to work and a mile home each day. I’ve akways wondered how could I ever listen to a book in my car. But I think I can listen to one while mowing the yard or something! And I recommended LET’S PRETEND to a friend who was dealing with a lot of shit and she thanked me for the AMAZING “listen” and said she laughed maniacally and therapeutically and that you and I basically, together, saved her life. So in the spirit of that strange circle of weirdness where we decide Let’s All Do Nice Shit, cheers to you, Jenny, for always making us laugh and for spreading the love. Or as my husband would say, spreading the bullshit. Yaaaassssss!

  313. Furiously Happy because it makes me furiously happy when I read it and I’m sure I’ll LOL while walking along the bay and the fish men will give me more weird looks that I already get when I do yoga on the sand and then fall over.

    Muah! Thanks for all your stories they brighten my day. Every so often I start the pay for people’s coffee chain at dunkin donuts and it’s really sweet when I hear that it continued for a few cars.

  318. I don’t need a book 🙂 I just wanted to tell you that I was talking about you in my taxidermy class last weekend! BTW: I started taking taxidermy classes, and that’s partly due to you. It makes me furiously happy 🙂

  319. I can’t decide because I love them both so much! …Furiously Happy? I’d be happy with either, really. You’re my favorite author whom I had to stop reading in public because I couldn’t hold in the laughter anymore and didn’t want to be stared at.

  320. Pick me! Pick me! I’ll read it to my 5′ metal cock when I find him. That post made my day. I haven’t laughed so hard in YEARS.

  321. I’d love to have either so I could listen, and they pass it along to someone else who needs a good pick-me-up. 🙂 Thanks for your consideration!

  327. I just finished Furiously Happy and it made my commute fantastic!! I would LOOOVE Let’s Pretend This Never Happened!!!! Just the fact you are doing this for fans has made my day. Thank you!! Btw, I always buy for people behind me in drive thrus… Except if there are two windows where you pay at the first and get the order at the second… I did that once and had to sit there waiting for my order while the person got the news behind me and I had a panic attack:(. Never again, I prefer giving drive by, anonymous gifts:)!!

  328. I would love to have either one. I’m glad a stranger made your day better, that’s fabulous!

    Oh my gosh I would love furiously happy! I read some of your first book to my teenage daughter who lives it so much she claimed it for a while and read it twice. We have shared your tales of Beyoncé and capernicous all over our little town of Fall Creek, WI. I am pretty sure half of this years senior class will be owners of odd stuffed critters and giant metal barnyard animals! You are awesome!!

  335. I read “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” and would love a copy of “Furiously Happy” !

  336. I would love Lets Pretend this Never Happened for an upcoming road trip!

  339. Don’t you just love paying it forward?? Greatest feeling ever! I’d love a book!

  340. EIther – but Furiously Happy is my preference. Or maybe Let’s Pretend is my preference. This decision is too stressful. Just choose for me, please. 🙂

  343. either. i love books read by the author. if i have to pick, furiously happy since a certain small person has removed most of my reading time so the hardcover has just been sitting on the bookshelf staring at me! 🙂

  344. I already have Furiously Happy on CD, but I’d LOVE Lets Pretend! Breakfast burritos for my men and whisky for my horses!

  345. I would love Let’s Pretend this Never Happened. It makes me laugh like Chewbecca mom and gets me through tough days.

  346. Furiously Happy please! 😀

  347. I want someone else to receive the audio books because I already have the paper editions and both made me furiously happy so let’s pretend this comment never happened.

  348. I actually don’t need the books, I already have them, but if you pick me, I’ll ask that you give a book to the person right below me. 🙂

  353. I was at Costco the other day and the teller closed the till after me, then turned and looked at me very seriously and said: “Do you want to pay for purchase of the person behind you in line?” Strangely, that also made my day! If you have copies of either still left (doubtful!) I’d love one. 🙂

  354. I’ve had that happen at Starbucks and it always makes my whole day.

I think the lady at the counter was more moved by this then the dude…I made her promise to be secret. If I want fan fair i’d go to parade.

    No entry, I just love you and our fabulously broken tribe!!!!

  363. Either one. I keep my hard copies of your books in plain sight partly as reminders to ASK FOR HELP when I can’t beat my illnesses alone. Related: I have an appointment with my doctor next week and I AM GOING TO FEEL BETTER. I am. Because I deserve it and nice people are going to help me.

    I would love Furiously Happy for my sister. She isn’t a big reader but last winter when she was here I read her parts of both books and she loved them. T

  367. I would love either book! Both of your books are fantastic and they helped inspire me to keep writing about my own mental health. So regardless of it you have any audio books left. Thank you for that 🙂

  368. Furiously Happy would make me and my cat Furi furiously happy.

  391. I’ve read — and loved — them both but I would love to listen to them! I live 20 minutes from town so I get lots of listening in when I’m driving. Pick me!! Also, one day I just felt the need to pay for the person behind me at the Starbucks drive-thru. My heart was happy all day.

  392. I would love to listen to Furiously Happy on the drive during a roadtrip I’m doing with my kids next month.

    And that happened to me once, too. It was a police officer that randomly paid for my stuff, so I paid for the person behind me, and it really made my whole morning brighter. Love when things like that happen.

  395. I want furiously happy! Never had an audio book so having your first book be the first would be amazeballs!

  398. I would love Furiously Happy! It’s so nice to be the recipient of a little gift.

  399. I already have them both, so I’m not requesting an audiobook.

    I just wanted to say that listening to your narration helps me constantly. I use your voice to ward off impending public panic attacks, to keep me company when I travel (Rory is my companion animal, apparently), when I can’t fall asleep at night, when things are stupid and I need cheering up. Oh, and on road trips when I need to rest my throat from all the caterwauling. (Also, apparently, the word isn’t “catterwhaling,” which I now realize is just an imaginary activity I created where you go catfishing, but on a much larger scale.)

    I wish your words had been available to me when I was younger, along with the knowledge that there are so, so many of us who read your words and finally feel “gotten.”

    Right now, I’m really excited that some of y’all who don’t have these audiobooks in your lives are about to get them. They are packed with love. And $25 bills. 😉

  400. I would be grateful to receive a copy of either!

  401. I would be thrilled to have LPTNH on audio! I have the hardcover, but audio would be great for long car trips. 🐙

    When will Furiously Happy come out in paperback?

  404. I used to work at Starbucks and I would love when people started paying for each others drinks. We had one person leave $100 to pay for whoever’s drinks, and most people would actually still pay for theirs so others could be treated as well. It’s about the little things that restore your faith in humanity. 🙂

    I actually JUST got Furiously Happy to read, so I’d love the audiobook to listen along with while I read.

    I would love an audio of Let’s pretend this never happened. You are amazing!

  409. Someone once paid for my coffee in the drive-thru and it made me so happy I’ve started doing it every once in awhile (usually if I’m having a bad day myself). It also seems to make the baristas really happy, so bonus! I don’t worry about what the car behind me ordered – I just make sure it’s a day I’m willing to shell out a little more money than I expect to (I haven’t had any “the car behind me ordered for the office” problems yet and I’ve been doing this for several years).

    For the person who asked how it works: usually I just tell the cashier that I want to pay for the car behind me, but sometimes (especially around Christmas) I buy gift cards and leave them with the baristas with instructions to use them for other customers until the money runs out.

  427. It’s like Sophie’s Choice – I can’t decide! Either – I love them both and would be ecstatic with either.

  428. Furiously Happy! I laughed so hard when I read the book that I had to stop reading it before bed because I couldn’t sleep afterward. It’s my go-to when I’m feeling low. FH on a road trip!? HAHAHAHA! Uh-oh. Hope I don’t drive off the road.

  429. I’d love to have Fusiously Happy (I own the audible) to give to someone I know needs to hear your sense of humor, while he battles with his mental disorder (my brother). We all need to laugh and I think your audio will help him understand that he’s not alone.

  430. Very sure I’m too late but Let’s Pretend this never happened. Perfect for being on the road this summer

    Laura recently posted Some things are NEVER okay.

  431. Fuirously Happy so my hubs can listen to it with me while commuting!!! I had to read “Let’s pretend this never happened” to him and still enjoyed it through my car sickness and all!

  432. I would LOVE to have either, but I feel like I should start with Lets Pretend This Never Happened.

    Next time I’m in the drive through, I’m going to Pay It Forward! 😀

    I would love a copy of either – not for me, but for a friend. I bought Furiously Happy when I was at the darkest point of the worst depressive episode of my life…so far? Took me two weeks to find the energy to read it (and I really wanted to read it). A few months later I learned that a friend was struggling with some of the same issues I had/have been facing, so I gifted my copy to her. It felt great to do that for her, and I’d love to do the same for another friend.

  462. I would love to have Let’s Pretend This Never Happened.

    I was also forwarded a kindness when someone paid my order in a drive through, one day. It prompted me to pay for the next 2 orders behind me that day and buy breakfast for a man who was in much need, the next day. Best way to be selfish is to get the high from giving to others. 💖

    Hi Jenny,

    I don’t want to put you through the effort of sending a CD to London, but I would have been very happy with either!

    I read Let’s Pretend the week it came out, and I’m working through Furiously Happy now, although I’ve got five books on the go which is slowing everything down a bit. I’m actually surprised I don’t have either on audible already… I’d better go hunting!

    You’re amazing and an inspiration to a fellow sufferer of things and stuff that aren’t worth explaining, they just suck.

    David

  466. I already have both on audiobook and listen to them circularly in my car on the way to and from work or to my therapists or to my psychiatrist or when I’m walking or when I’m anxious or when I’m not anxious (wait, I don’t think that ever happens…scratch that one) or when I’m sad or when I just need a dose of Jennyness. Glad random acts of kindness come to you as you perform so many for others. 🙂

  467. I’ve always wanted to try an audio book, but always thought they would put me to sleep. I’m sure “Furiously Happy” would not put me to sleep. Just looking at his eyes crack me up every time!

  481. Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. I loaned my hard copy to a friend, and I’d love to be able to listen to it on the train, laugh hysterically, and freak out the people sitting near me.

  482. I’d love a copy of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. I recently bought the audio book of Furiously Happy,and now I need your first book on audiobook.

  483. On the off chance you will mail one to Canada – I’ll comment for Furiously Happy.

  484. Congrats on the Audie win! If you have any left I’d love Let’s Pretend This Never Happened.

  485. Let’s Pretend This Never Happened.

    My boss tried listening to your book and she just didn’t get it. I had to laugh because 1) I love reading your books and 2) that helped to show my boss’s personality even more.

  486. I would dearly LOVE to have a copy of Furiously Happy 🙂

  487. I’ve been handing out your books like religious pamphlets. Only better and less offensive, to the people I know. I’d love the audiobooks!

  488. Your generosity is so heart warming. Booksgiving was one of my favourite days. I didn’t request any, but I had a blast buying for other people! It gave me so many happy, warm fuzzy feelings, that the next day, I did exactly what happened to you. Only it was lunch.

    I bought the next person’s lunch and that began a chain reaction. By the time I left, four more people had paid it forward.

    Keep doing what you do. You inspire me to be a better person. Thank you!

  489. Jenny, I would love an audiobook of either. If forced to choose, I’d pick LPTNH.

    Just wanted to let you know that I referred to you the other day when describing an awesome author I am just now discovering: “If Jenny Lawson and David Sedaris had a baby, that would be Augusten Burroughs.” Of course there is a lot wrong with that sentence, so please don’t read it too literally. But hopefully you know what I mean, and I meant it as a huge compliment to AB, since I think both you and DS hung the moon.

  490. What a lovely gesture. Both by the car ahead and by you.

    I have Let’s Pretend This Never Happened (Hilarious) and just purchased Furiously Happy on my phone. My daughter suffers from Anxiety and Depression and has tried for years to explain her brain to me. She told me two weeks ago about something she read on the internet about the “Spoon Theory” and it made so much sense to me. I literally read about it in your book the next day – crazy. I have shared excerpts of your book with her but would love for her to have her own hard copy. She loves Tumbler and calls the people on there her friends, loves Dr Who, anything super hero related, animals and renaissance fairs. I think your book would be a huge help to her as she will relate to your words! Thank you for sharing your life with such wonderful humor!

  506. My family has bought both, so if you draw me, redraw and give to someone else. Congratulations so hard on your Audie Award, Jenny! We love you!

  516. Aww how can I ever choose?! Surprise me! 🙂 Such a wonderful gesture when people pay for the person behind them in line. I remember being in college and had 5$ until pay day and was running late to work and drove through to get a cheeseburger to hold me over until I got off work at 11:00pm. The car in front of me not only paid for my cheeseburger but told them to make it a meal and paid for it (I must have really looked pathetic in my beat down Saturday that ticked from lack of oil changes haha) There wasn’t a car behind me so I was able to save my 5$ and buy another meal and wasn’t starving through my entire shift.

  522. Let’s Pretend! I want to listen to you tell the turkey story and the dead squirrel story. I like to read them outloud to other people, but then I can’t because I cry from laughing to hard and they just stare at me.

  523. I would love Furiously Happy!

  524. Either. You pick.
    PS: I love you back.

  528. You rock. I already have both, I just stopped by to tell your how much you are loved. Today I’m borrowing from my furiously happy bank. I’ll tell it when things are better.

  529. I would love either… or both! You have been such an inspiration to me, and I am so glad to know that there are so many who can relate to this glorious life I live with anxiety, bouts of depression, humor and sarcasm.

  530. I would absolutely love to hear you read Let’s Pretend!!

    I would love a copy of either one. I have passed my paper copies on to all my family and friends because it was so amazingly funny and touching!

  533. Well currently everyone in my town thinks I’m crazy as I drive around laughing out loud to myself listening to Furious. So having Let’s Pretend would pretty much seal the deal. Sounds perfect!

  534. Furiously Happy! That would be awesome!!

  535. Oh wow! What a nice way to start the day. Yay for random acts of kindness. 🙂 If I am lucky enough to be randomly selected, I would love a copy of Furiously Happy as there are people in my life who neeeeeeed to hear it!

  536. I’m road-tripping with my mom this summer, and I’m pretty sure listening to Let’s Pretend This Never Happened would make the road trip even more awesome!

    PS – Someone paid for my coffee the other day, so I tried to pay for the person behind me, and they hadn’t ordered yet when I was at the window. 🙁

  537. PICK ME PICK ME!!!!!! I’d love to hear your sweet voice in my earballs as I drive down the road laughing my ass off. #FuriouslyHappy please. Also – I vow to pass your gift on to someone in need of some #FuriouslyHappiness and make them to promise to pass it on until the whole entire world is #FuriouslyHappy and then you’ll have to write a new book called, “Cool Your Damn Jets, Y’ALL! There’s too much HAPPINESS! Wait…there can never be too much happiness.” It’s a working title, you can tweak it if you want. I’m just here for ideas. And the free Audio book.

    P.S. I love you too.

    P.P.S. We have already started a #FuriouslyHappy book chain where everyone it gets passed to, signs it and when they are done, they pass it onto the next. It’s somewhere in Oregon now.

  538. I already bought the hard cover and audio for “Furious” and I purchased “Let’s Pretend . . .” for my daughter but would really, really LOVE the audio of “Let’s Pretend . . .” for myself. 😉

    I read Furiously Happy and had to keep closing the book every couple of pages, because my giggling was causing the dog to come over and put his paw on my knee and gaze deep into my eyes with great concern. So, I bought the audio of Let’s Pretend…. and though I do love the sound of your voice, I wish there was a knob on my reader like the old 331/3 setting on the record player to slow your voice so I could savor the words… please… in your next audiobook? Please read slower for us old folks… thanks…jo

  551. Furiously Happy PLEASE!

  552. Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. It was SO good I’d love to have it to just listen to. I still need to get your other book… it’s on my “gift” list… but the ol’ husband has not taken the hint. Maybe I need to remind him XD

  555. I don’t know if you’ve made a decision yet, but in the spirit of giving rather than receiving, I’d like you to send a copy of Furiously Happy to my ex-husband’s wife. She and I are close friends, so this would not be some kind of vicious joke or anything. But she and I are a lot alike in the mental health issues we’ve dealt with, and with four kids I doubt she’d ever be able to sit down and read an actual book version. I’ve told her about the books many times and how they’ve helped me laugh through some dark times of my own.

    P.S. I laughed out loud reading the snake under the car bit in Let’s Pretend because my mom did almost identically the same thing. While my brother (age 7) and I (age 5) were both in the car. Had to have a reading of it in my living room at Christmas.

    Please, either, I need your voice in the car because the car is a scary place for me and I feel like listening to you would make it way more tolerable. Why is driving places so hard? Probably because there are people at the other end and they usually expect me to be able to engage in conversation. Silly people.

  565. I’ve been beating myself up over trying to save a few bucks by buying the Kindle versions of both since I have a dear friend who I would totally gift LPTNH. If I was chosen to receive that book, it would be the greatest gift. Your talent is such a gift.

  571. I listened to Let’s Pretend This Never Happened on my recent annual road trip to New York City and it was seriously one of the best audio books I’ve ever listened to in my life! I’d love a copy of Furiously Happy, I’ve been wanting to listen to it since the second if finished LPTNH 😀

  572. Let’s Pretend This Never Happened has brought me to tears–in the best way–during this time in which I’m coping with widowhood and sudden single-motherhood. Even if I don’t win one of your audiobooks I want you to know that you have brought light into some very dark spaces in my life. Thank you, Jenny!

    Oh, that’s such a sweet start to the day! I am glad you passed it on.

    I would love the audio book of “Furiously Happy”! My hubby and I are going on a road trip and LOVE listening to audio books while on the road. He has read “Furiously Happy: already, but I have not. It would be great to listen and talk about it. I know he thought it was a wonderful book.

    This road trip is long, the first leg is 6 1/2 hrs, then we stop for a few days. Next leg is about 11 hours, then we are at my best friend’s home for a week. If we finished the audio book, I would then pass it on to her! The return trip will be about 13 hours. I actually have an extra day off, just to recuperate!

    Am I too late? Is it possible that you have 562 audio books to give away? I would love to listen to “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” during my hour long commute to work. “Let’s pretend this never happened” is usually what I am thinking on the hour long commute back home from work. I should explain that I teach middle school, am a single mom, and am a struggling writer/business owner so there is a lot of stuff I would like to pretend has never happened. Whether i receive an audio book or not, I am going to buy someone lunch tomorrow so I can keep the circle of generosity going. Thanks for some inspiration!

  582. I am listening to “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” right now. Well not literally right now, but it’s my current listen when I walk. Because I smile continuously and laugh out loud, I imagine people on the trail are dying to know what I’m listening too…or they think I’m insane…or they just feel sorry for me because I’m simple and lonely.

The book reads like story telling, it would be interesting to know if what I hear in my head matches how you say it. Thanks for the books! First time i could actually read a book again AND I laughed out loud after a very bad time was when I tried to read your first book. I say tried because before that I was unable to read any book for more than a year. You flipped my constant reader switch back on, what a gift

He sees those who might be struggling and will go assist.

  624. In the 1970’s my parents wrote and illustrated a book for my sister and I called “Lets Pretend” it was about a game we played where I was a Super Horse and she was a Super Dog, although one time when she was 4 she wanted to be Super Market….but that part isn’t in the book. At the end of the book the two girls are sitting down for supper and the parents spit out their spaghetti when they see the girls legs are horse and dogs legs…. that the pretending hadn’t quite worn off.
    I thought you might like that story and I really liked your Lets Pretend book too… so that would be the audio book that would make me happy today.

  625. Let’s Pretend It Never Happened. And I also appreciate that I don’t have to jump through many hoops to enter.

  626. I’m picking up anything you’re laying down! I would love Let’s Pretend!

    I would love a copy of Furiously Happy! Money has been tight recently and I haven’t been able to afford my own copy, but I keep hearing how awesome it is…

    I’d love Let’s Pretend This Never Happened! Growing up in the South; some of the weirded stories really spoke to me. 🙂

  629. Please share Furiously Happy on audio with us! Newborn baby makes reading my hardcover copy challenging…

    I already have both, but I’m happy you’re happy.

  631. I will take either, because I listen to audiobooks while I drive, and that seems like an excellent location to laugh so hard I pee myself a little.

  632. “Let’s Pretend” because page 13 is the funniest thing I have ever read and laughed so hard I could not stop. Every time I thought I had it under control and tried to continue reading I would start laughing again. Tears rolling down my face. And I would love to hear you read that to me.

    Either would be cool. I would just love to listen to your voice. Then I’d probably give it to my local library to share the joy 😀

    Either would be awesome. I’d just love to listen to your voice. Then I’d donate it to my local library so others could share in the joy! (and this time I’m leaving my name!)

  637. Good Pay it Forward story! I already have both those audiobooks.

    I would love Furiously Happy! I have recommended your books to evryone who reads. Love them!

  639. Oh. Please? Furiously Happy. That would be awesome. If I am picked, thank you. ❤

    Very cool. I love it when that happens. I have paid for people behind me, but never been the recipient. My husband has. It is awesome though. Its fun and potentially life saving. Ya never know what kind of a day someone is having.

    Kindness is a powerful thing. ❤

  640. Let’s Pretend! Cause it made me laugh during one of the darkest times on my life.
    And because, already have Furiously Happy…just waiting for an autograph.

  641. Holy cow! I am late to the ball. At least you know how much people love free shit! Furiously happy is the book that strikes my fancy. We adopted two children last year not realizing I had a pretty severe neurological Lyme infection. So treatment and momming is pretty damn hard…but worth it!?!?!
    It is what it is. Wish I was furiously happy. Just sayin…

  642. I seriously would love either!! I have several long drives coming up (my grandfather is under going chemo and I’m going to hang with him) so they would be perfect!

  643. I would be furiously happy to get Furiously Happy!

  644. Wow, if you happen to have any left by now, I’d dig a copy of Furiously Happy. My ten-year old already quotes the chicken stabbing dog story from Pretend to me all the freaking time. I read an excerpt to her (no, I did no tread the whole book to her. She’s ten, yo). But it’s delicious laughing together over it. Thanks!

  645. If you are giving something, I’m happy to have either one!

    I would LOVE a copy of each – if possible. I think both my daughter and I would benefit from them! If I can only get one, I need to start with the first one first… Let’s Pretend…

    Thank you!!

  647. I want Furiously Happy!

    I would love a copy of Furiously Happy. I’m dyslexic and sometimes its incredibly hard fro me to get through a whole book and I find my self reading sentences over and over and over. I love your books and I got Furiously Happy on release day but I must confess i’m only half finished. It would be awesome to listen while I drive to and from work. Keep being awesome!

  649. It’s like Sophie’s choice!!! I guess…let’s pretend this never happened please.

  650. I would prefer Furiously Happy, but I would happily take either 🙂

  651. I’m just grateful you write! Love your books! Have a great day!

  652. Furiously Happy! That’s because you inspire me to be the same.

    I would love a copy of “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” because hearing you tell the story of Jumbo Quail would make my month 🙂

  655. I would take either, because, as my mama says, beggars can’t be choosers. And because I love you 🙂

  656. I’d love an audio copy of Furiously Happy. I bought the book, but haven’t had time to sit down and read it! I’ll gladly pas the book on as a gift if I’m able to listen instead. 🙂

    Furiously happy would be lovely, thanks so very much!

  660. Ooh! Both are fantastic, but I’d love ‘Let’s Pretend’ I’ve been wanting my son to read it, but I think he’ll do better if we listen to it together.

  661. Oh I love audiobooks! I haven’t read Furiously Happy yet, so lets shoot for that one! 🙂

    I need Let’s Pretend This Never Happened to give to my dear friend who is moving across the ocean, despite having a great fear of flying over water. She needs a laugh to keep her distracted!

  663. I have read them both and loved them both. You are some of the magic. I will acquire the audio books for one of my best friends who has trouble with print books b/c of her meds. She is magic too. (Just not as funny.)

  664. Fingers crossed for either one…okay, now their not as I am so physically unfit that my fingers just cramped doing that..;)

    It would leave me …..Furiously Happy!

  669. Wow! I check your site twice or three times a day but I’m already almost 700 comments behind. So I would love either one. in any case thanks!

  670. I would love “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened”! I lent someone my signed copy (I met you in Toronto on your first tour) which I often do for friends who are struggling with mental health issues. Unfortunately, I can’t remember who has it, and it hasn’t made it way home yet! An audio book would be a great replacement! 🙂 (Though I will miss all the awesome family photos…)

  671. Let’s pretend this didn’t happen. I LOVED your second book!!!

    Furiously happy!

  673. J-Law (that’s what people call you, right? Bc you were J-Law waaaaay before Jennifer Lawrence!),
    You’re so flippin’ awesome. I don’t want either book, as I have both audiobooks downloaded from Audible, but just wanted to give you a virtual high 5…bc you rock!! I’m headed down to the beach for an all-girls’ weekend w/some of my closest friends, who are total introverts like me (ok, it’s just one friend, but she gets me, and we both have been going on this “retreat” of quiet peace & sand & ocean for years now…it’s the perfect vacay). We leave next week, and it’s a good 7 hour drive, which is the PERFECT time to share my love for your hilarity! I think we may even be able to squeeze in both books…one on the way down and one on the way back up! You are amazeballs!

    I would love either! I’m currently undergoing Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation treatment for severe depression and would love to listen to your voice during treatments. Lovelovelove you for all of the inspiration and strength you give me. ❤️

  675. Furiously Happy! I want to give it to my sister.

  676. I’d love a copy of Furiously Happy for my sweet friend who has been going through a tough patch.

  677. I’d love Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. I’m currently listening to Furiously Happy. Your talk at Politics and Prose (recorded for the Slate podcast) was great. You got a new reader from it.

    A friend of mine just introduced me to your blog/books today! I’m already in love! <3 I would love a copy of “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened”!!

  679. I love Furiously Happy! I listened to it on my way across country and it made me feel like I was not alone, although people who saw me laughing and crying while driving all alone seemed to loo a little nervous..lol. I would love to have a copy of “Lets Pretend this Never Happened.” I have it on my wish list on Amazon, just waiting for $.

  680. I would love Let’s Pretend! I have both books in hardcopy, but I can only imagine listening to you read it would be awesome!

  681. Furiously Happy, please? Did you expect to be totally clobbered by requests? xo

  682. I would love to have Let’s Pretend This Never Happened so I can hear about the giant chicken over and over. Also I would love to take you on a tour of this amazing art tool I tried. http://nancyhadley.com/2016/05/look-how-far-we-have-come-art-and-computers/

  683. The Transitive Property and how it applies to you, Dear Bloggess: IF YOU are AWESOME (Which ya are, Blanche, ya are!), and YOUR BOOKS are a part of YOU, then, Your BOOKS ARE AWESOME…Please send me the AWESOME Furiously Happy! 😀 Jamy

    Furiously happy! I had to stop reading it on an airplane because I was laughing too hard.

  687. I love you and your books and I talk about you all the time to my sister and read your blog out loud to her but she doesn’t read (not that she CAN’T read, that would be sad and I would have taught her by now, what kind of sister do you think I am?) but she does LISTEN to books while she is waiting in the pickup lane at the elementary school (if you don’t get there at least 45 minutes early you are not going to get a spot in the front of the line, and that is NOT how my sister rolls), so I would love to be able to gift her a copy of either of your books so she can understand more completely why I love you and possible be able to better understand why I don’t like crowds and people.

  688. That photo of your Blythe shelf definitely made my day a little brighter! 😀

    I already have a print copy of Let’s Pretend, so an audio of Furiously Happy would be cool…though I think a lot of other people who’ve already commented need/deserve it more.

    Oh please, oh please, pick me, pick me! I would love an audio copy of Furiously Happy. My friends and family would like it even more as i’ve been following them around reading them passages ever since I borrowed it from the library recently. No doubt I’m sure they’d much rather have you read it to them. And come to think of it, I’d rather you read it to me too! I loved it so much that when the library demanded their copy back I went to my local bookstore and purchased both Furiously Happy and Let’s Pretend This Never Happy Birthday to me! You even make my linear-thinking engineer husband laugh! Although he is somewhat concerned to know that there is another person in the world whose brain works like mine. Apparently there are not people like us in engineering school. What a pity. Anyway, thanks for continuing to pay it forward, even if the “forward” isn’t to me. But I hope it is. Really. Did I mention it was my birthday? Okay, so it was last month but since I didn’t have birthday cake yet it’s still technically my birthday. That’s a rule. I’m sure it’s written somewhere… I think I should stop talking now.

  693. Let’s Pretend This Never Happened please!

  694. Furiously Happy please!

    Enjoyed both books, so either one would work. You don’t realize how much it means to know that I’m not alone in this.

    Well I’m #665 (or more cuz 50 folks will probably post while I’m doing this) so those are some pretty intense odds, but I’d love either one, but mostly Furiously Happy. And I just realized that I could always comment HERE instead of Facebook because I don’t like to comment on FB because I know close friends and family would NOT understand. That’s why I’d like to have the audio of FA also, cuz I can listen with headphones for the same reason. And not that I care what “they” think, I just don’t feel like explaining it to someone…like my friends who didn’t get why I went to AA a hundred years ago. Thanks for being you. Peace out.

  698. Would love to have Furiously Happy!

  699. I would love Furiously Happy. I listened to the audio book, that I checked out from my library. It was like an angel from heaven. It brought humor and understanding to me in a rough time after moving to another state. It will always have a special place in my heart.
