Book Description

The second volume in the best-selling I Just Want to Pee Alone series!

Don't get us wrong, we love the men in our lives – we do (most of the time). It's just that sometimes we would like them to go away. Not forever or anything like that. Just for an hour … or a day … or a weekend. We want some time to ourselves to read a good book or take a walk or do anything other than try to make a dent in the never ending mound of dirty clothes that keeps piling up on the floor on his side of the bed. We just want to be alone. All alone. Is that too much to ask?

I Just Want to Be Alone is a collection of humorous essays from 37 of the most Super Cool Lady Writers you'll find on the web. Including: People I Want to Punch in the Throat, Baby Sideburns, A.K. Turner, My Husband Ate All My Ice Cream, and Bad Parenting Moments.

Read hilarious essays like:

Open Letter To My Son (Or: Your Mother’s Top 10 List of Ways Not to Be a Douchebag Husband)

Exploding With Love, Literally

Romance is Overrated

Dear Magnolia, Should I Marry This Man?

In this follow up to a hugely successful first book, Jen and company take on the men in their lives. Once again, these truth-telling women give you a funny PG-13 peek behind closed doors. If you’re like me (nosy and with the attention span of a hummingbird) you’ll love this book because each of the essays is like a quick visit with your BFF. Stash a paperback wherever you might need a few minutes of respite from your own better half. Read one of these funny-because-its-true tales and you'll emerge refreshed and ready to help him with whatever crisis he totally could have resolved himself if he would just listen to 50% of what you say. But I digress. Put a backup copy on your smartphone for the carpool line, soccer practice, or wherever you need a delightful diversion to survive even one more minute. You’ll get by with a little help from these friends.

As if there was a chance I wouldn't enjoy this book. If you have had any dealings with dating, marital life, or commitment (even if that commitment is with your male beta fish, Gordon) with a man, then this book will make you laugh out loud. Jen has once again knocked it out of the park with her stellar group of lady bloggers, sharing hilarious tales of what life is really like when you love, or try to love, a man.

I love a book that makes me wildly shake my head in agreement and fist pump the air! Yep! That was me as I read "I Just Want to Be Alone" from some of the most awesome and hilarious bloggers on the planet. You too will look like a nutjob (in tears) as you read through this comical collection of stories that reminds us all how much we want and need our "me" time. Husbands are great - it's true. But, my gawd, can they place us on the brink of insanity. Reading this made me realize that my life and relationship is as normal as the next girl's - that normal unfortunately includes suffocation by spooning and how evolution has left man (not woman) behind. Get the book. You want to... It's a sweet escape to that "me" place your sanity is dying to visit!

An absolutley hilarious collection of essays that remind us we're all in the same circus - just different tents.

An amazing group of writers pooled together to share stories about relationships. In every one (seriously - every. one.) I found myself laughing out loud (as in an actual audible guffaw, not the typical "lol" we see bandied abut so often). The point is, we can all relate.

Find a place to squirrel away to read. Actually - better yet, find a public place to read it since that will give you the opportunity to read your favorite passages out loud. (You know you do it.)

You may note that this book is Volume 2 - don't worry if you haven't read Volume 1 (I Just Want to Pee Alone) yet. Sit back with the multitude of tales about relationships and then go back to the future with the first volume that delves into the delights of parenthood.

I knew that this hysterical anthology would not disappoint. After reading and loving I Just Want To Pee Alone, a collection of essays from mothers who also happen to be hilarious and talented bloggers, hearing that there was a second collection of stories about the various ups and downs of marriage, was music to my ears. I happen to follow many of these bloggers on the web already and laugh daily at their antics and accounts of their life experiences. This montage of real world tales is from start to finish, perfection. Every married woman on the planet can relate and find herself in these stories. And every single woman on the planet, who plans to one day get married, will certainly love this humorous array of what they have to look forward to. What a delightful and fun read that I will enjoy gifting to my engaged friends.

I found myself literally laughing out loud as I read the essays. I could relate to so many of the stories and I few times found myself feeling glad my husband didn’t do some of things these Super Cool Lady Writers husbands do. Thank you ladies for putting up with them and writing about it! And thanks to all the husband who let their wives share such great and funny stories about their personal lives.
This would be a great gift for a bride to be. A little light reading to see just what married life can be like.

If you are looking for a little sanity, a good laugh, or to see how other women are driven crazy by their husbands too, get a hold of a copy of I Just Want To Be Alone!

This collection of essays is one hysterical read after another. I highly recommend it to anyone and the book would be especially good for a wedding or anniversary gift.

Also, a special shout-out goes to the husband of Karen Alpert (Baby Sideburns) for being a particularly good sport to let *that* story make it into print.
