Welcome to another installment of The Daily Doocy!
This is really the first chance I've had to thank you for your wonderful response to my book, "The Mr. and Mrs. Happy Handbook." Thanks to you, it went from my computer to The New York Times Best Seller list! It wound up in the top 10, the first week out! It's also in the Wall Street Journal's top 10 — whoopie!
Why has this book struck a chord with America? Just look at the popular books we have to chose from right now at the bookstore: "State of Denial," "The God Delusion," and "The End, a Series of Unfortunate Events" — just to name a few. Nothing cheery there! A lot of doom and gloom. That's why I wrote the book, because I wanted to write a POSITIVE BOOK ABOUT MARRIAGE! Not only positive, but it had to be funny.
Now according to the professional reviewers — and the people I value the most: our FOX News readers — the verdict is in: It is positively funny!
Just read one of the reviews I've received from one of the early readers of "The Mr. and Mrs. Happy Handbook":
OH my GOSH! I bought the book yesterday, after the sales girl told me she had never heard of the book! I said, "What? It's No. 9 on New York's best-seller list!" We found it in the self-help section!
What a hilariously funny book! I laughed till I cried and I cried till I laughed again! I love the "DIYers" (Do It Yourselfers) story, I myself am a DIYer. My hubby is a "Hire a Guy-er" kind of guy! But I must say I never fell on a Little Tykes Cozy Coupe!
And the birthing story! The bracelet! Buwauahahahah! PMS! How funny!
Looking forward to "The Mr. and Mrs. Happy Handbook" to Menopause and Retirement!"
Thanks Patti, I'm glad you loved it.
Here's my offer to you other readers, after you've read the book, I hope you too will send me an e-mail review to email@example.com. I'm surprised how many people got the book the first week, and have already sent me their comments.
If you're interested, the book is available wherever you buy books and on the Internet at www.amazon.com and www.bn.com. And, for those of you who are interested in an autographed copy — good news! You can get them at www.happyhandbook.com and if you order two copies, they'll send a free copy to a military family. Just trying to bring a little happiness to those who need it!
Thank you again for making my book the No. 1 humor book in the nation. How can I repay you? Need help with yard work? I'll see if my son is busy...
See you in the morning on "FOX & Friends"!
