I just got Join Me by Danny Wallace in the mail!!


So I don't think I posted it to my lj, but I put all of the books I have yet to read in alphabetical order and told myself I would only read them in that order and any new books I got after that I would put behind this pile, also in alphabetical order, to read once I'm done with the ones I've already got.

I'm making an exception for Join Me, because Danny Wallace is effing brilliant and I want to read something effing brilliant right now.

Danny Wallace is the dude who also wrote Yes Man (which later became a movie), which I was interested in reading but only became increasingly more excited about reading when I found out two things: A) It actually happened, to Danny Wallace, who decided to say yes to EVERYTHING and then wrote about it, and B) That Danny Wallace is BRITISH. And HILARIOUS. Hilarity is always multiplied by a pretty big number when the hilarious person turns out to be British. Trust me on this.

I loved Yes Man so much that even though that's the only of his books I've read, I deemed Danny Wallace one of my Very Favorite Authors and promptly put everything he'd ever written on my wishlist on Paperback Swap.

It took FOREVER but someone finally had a copy of Join Me for me, which is a book he wrote about a cult he inadvertently started. AMAZING. I CANNOT WAIT TO READ IT.

I love Danny Wallace because his books are about crazy things he did on random whims, and how they turned into something greater and more awesome than he could have ever hoped. They are REAL STORIES about a CRAZY GUY. I love it to pieces. I kind of want to meet this man.
