Some of you may know that B.J. Novak, best known for his role as Ryan Howard on “The Office” (U.S. version), has written a book! It’s a collection of short stories called One More Thing, and you should definitely watch the trailer to learn more about it (i.e., be extremely amused):
So he’s on tour promoting the book right now, and last weekend he came to a bookstore in my area! I got my book signed:
And he was gracious enough to pose for pictures with everyone who showed up:
(I am the one who is not B.J. Novak.)
So that was a good day. 🙂 I haven’t read the book yet, but I have sampled a few of the stories, and they’re really funny! Hopefully the rest of the book will live up to my high expectations.

I was wondering about this book. I love Mindy Kaling and her show so I was curious about this one. Loved the trailer! Might give this one a shot now! Great review!
Yeah, the trailer kind of sold me on it too. 🙂 And I also like Mindy Kaling’s show a lot! Have you read her book? I haven’t yet, but it’s on my list!
I have read it and I’d definitely recommend it! I couldn’t stop laughing and I actually started to annoy people because I kept reading them passages and laughing the whole time! 🙂
Good to know! I’ll have to track a copy down sooner rather than later!
Aw, that was nice! I was listening to This American Life today and heard a dramatization of one of the stories — strange and silly, rather charming, I thought.
Jenny, “strange and silly, rather charming” is basically the impression I have also! I’m looking forward to reading the whole book.
