I just finished up Idiot’s Guide last night. Good stuff to read to put you in a good mood. No matter how you’re feeling, just reading about her crazy exploits and rantings makes me laugh out loud on every chapter. And you never forget where you were in ‘the story’ because each chapter is it’s own story. Now, there is some carry over about certain events, so I do recommend reading it front to back. But as I can testify, you don’t have to read the books in order at all. Great book. Highly recommended for making you laugh out loud. Easy to squeeze in a few chapters at a time.
