There are footnotes

FYI - there are footnotes on the nook...you just have to touch the number and it will bring you to the page. It's a little annoying because sometimes it doesn't work and just forwards the page...but they are there and they are funny. Also...the footnotes each have their own page...so, I loved the book and thought I was only half way finished when I realized it was over and all that was left were all of the footnotes that I already read. I would still recommend the book...but next time I read a Jen Lancaster I might buy the paperback instead.

NO footnotes on the ebook version!!

I just downloaded the ebook version of this book only to find that an extremely important feature is not included. Jen Lancaster uses footnotes throughout her book (like on every page) that are extremely funny and make up a large portion of the humor. To read the book...

I am very dissappointed!

    Three Stars

    I recommend Jen Lancaster's first book, Bitter Is the New Black, which reads like a funny chick lit novel. This sequel is written in the same style--i.e., with footnotes, e-mails, letters, and daily logs--but it covers a less eventful, less interesting period in Lancaster's life, working temp jobs until she is paid for writing Bitter. Just good enough to finish reading.
