Jumping Genres in June Giveaway Hop: Enter to Win a Hilarious Book by Comedian Jim Gaffigan!

Welcome to the Jumping Genres in June Giveaway Hop hosted by Valerie at StuckInBooks.com! Every blogger participating in this hop is featuring a book in a genre they don't normally read.

I read almost all fiction, especially historical fiction, Christian fiction or YA, so I was surprised to find myself picking up a nonfiction comedy book by Jim Gaffigan! In case you're not familiar with him, he is a terrific comedian who manages to keep his act "clean" (what a refreshing concept) while still making everyone laugh uproariously. The second season of his TV sitcom begins on Father's Day, June 19, and I can't wait! His two books are based on his two most popular comedy topics: his family (he's a happily married father of 5) and food. I've been reading Dad Is Fat, and I can't stop laughing at all of Jim's insights about parenting (I'll review it on my parenting blog, Susan Heim on Parenting, when I've finished), and I've already reserved his other book at the library. So, I will send one lucky winner a brand-new copy of one of the two books below by Jim Gaffigan (in print or Kindle, winner's choice).

In Dad Is Fat, stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan, who’s best known for his legendary riffs on Hot Pockets, bacon, manatees, and McDonald's, expresses all the joys and horrors of life with five young children -- everything from cousins ("celebrities for little kids") to toddlers’ communication skills (“they always sound like they have traveled by horseback for hours to deliver important news”), to the eating habits of four-year-olds (“there is no difference between a four-year-old eating a taco and throwing a taco on the floor”). Dad Is Fat is sharply observed, explosively funny, and a cry for help from a man who has realized he and his wife are outnumbered in their own home.

Have you ever finished a meal that tasted horrible but not noticed until the last bite? Eaten in your car so you wouldn’t have to share with your children? Gotten hungry while watching a dog food commercial? Does the presence of green vegetables make you angry? If you answered yes to any of the following questions, you are pretty pathetic, but you are not alone. Feast along with America’s favorite food comedian, bestselling author, and male supermodel Jim Gaffigan as he digs into his specialty: stuffing his face. Food: A Love Story is an in-depth, thoroughly uninformed look at everything from health food to things that people actually enjoy eating.

One lucky winner can select one of the books above in print or eBook format. Enter through the Rafflecopter form below. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and ends at 11:59 PM EST on June 19, 2016.
