Just reading the introduction, I knew I had a winner. In second grade her teacher, Mr Booker, told her she was a good reader and that was all she needed, from then on her nose was always in a book. Leto goes on to tell us that her parents stormed in to the principal's office to complain about Mr Booker and his apparent interest in their child's reading (her nose always being in a book, she would not go out to play & make any friends, etc) but that did not sway Leto from reading.
The book is full of fun ways that being an educated reader can hurt or help you in all kinds of situations...for instance one chapter is about the ten rules for book store hook ups. Another about being book snob.... you never mention that you are reading a frilly book of summer love! You want to fake like you read an important author? All kinds of helpful hints in this book.
So, yes this book is hilarious. It is also a who's who of important authors and magnificent books that we should be reading. I whole-heartedly recommend this book :)

EACH YEAR IT IS ESTIMATED THAT OVER 200,000 WOMEN WILL BE DIAGNOSED WITHBREAST CANCER AND ALMOST 40,000 WILL DIE.
Keranique hopes to change this: Keranique is partnering with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) for Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October.
Keranique hopes to raise $10,000 for NBCF: For each Facebook fan who shares a message of HOPE, Keranique will donate $1 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Help us get 10,000 shares; help us raise $10,000!
We hope you will help: Share your message of HOPE on your wall. Tell your friends and families $1=early detection plan. Help us increase awareness of breast cancer and save lives through early detection!
Starting Monday, October 1st, new and existing fans to the Keranique Facebook page will be encouraged to ‘Share’ a message of hope. http://www.facebook.com/#!/Keranique
