Mandy’s Blogger Book Club Summer Selection: America, You Sexy Bitch by Michael Ian Black and Meghan McCain

 Hi everyone! Welcome to the 1st official Mandy’s Blogger Book Club kick off post!

The Summer selection for Mandy’s Blogger Book Club is America, You Sexy Bitch (Published by Da Capo Press) by Michael Ian Black and Meghan McCain. I picked this book randomly in the middle of the night last week in the midst of Book Expo America madness while trolling Twitter in an Ambien haze. This is a weird coincidence, because this is very similar to how Michael Ian Black came up with the idea to write America, You Sexy Bitch with Meghan McCain. He was on Ambien on Twitter late at night and asked Meghan to write a book with him. The book is a look at America from a liberal perspective (Black) and a conservative perspective (McCain) as the authors travel across the country in an RV together over the course of a month. Click here to order a copy of America, You Sexy Bitch from Amazon.

I’m glad I impulsively decided to start a book club promoting this particular book for a couple of reasons. The U.S. is gearing up for an election and the country is more politically charged than ever. So, I think this selection will lead to many great conversations amongst the bloggers that participate. (You don’t have to be one of the 47 bloggers that receive a free copy to participate in the link up btw. See the video below for details.) I am going to have a couple of discussion posts throughout the time I cover the book on the site (July 20th – August 15). The other reason is I am a huge Michael Ian Black fan. His latest book could have been about the size and shapes of his poop, and I probably would have picked it.

I will post the official link up page on July 20th. I will also try to post a list of the 50 bloggers (see video for why 47 are being picked from the form) receiving free copies of the book sometime early next week. I hope to have the books in the mail by Monday.

Please Note: I paid for the books and am paying for the postage with my own money. This is not sponsored by the publisher. Though, I am totally open to selling out and having a sponsored selection in the future. Or I might just use the trolling Twitter on Ambien in the middle of the night method to pick the next selection as well. Also, I will be using the hashtag #MBBCWRW for book club discussion on Twitter. Feel free to use it when you tweet about the book.

The first 47 people to fill out the form below will receive a copy of America, You Sexy Bitch from me for free. I will try to get the form down as soon as 47 people have filled it out, but there is the possibility that I won’t get it down in time. (I am a huge slacker.) So, don’t assume you’re automatically in if you filled out the form. Although if it only goes over by a few, I’ll probably order a few more copies.:) May the odds be ever in your favor!

 The form is down! I’ll post a list of everyone receiving a free copy soon!:)

    You look gorgeous! I love that dress. Well, you always look good but I love that dress!!!

    Can’t wait to participate. Fun times and I’m sure America and Da Capo Press thank you for your patriotism. 😉

    Great idea, and it should be noted: I believe all political buttons should be so well-placed! Forget flags on lapel pins, that’s old hat. It reminds me of a button my son picked up at an Obama rally in 2008 that said “Hot Chicks Dig Obama”. (He was only 4 years old and couldn’t read at the time, but we weren’t allowed to leave without that button. Yes, I take my children to political rallies–it’s great for people-watching. I’ll worry about therapy later.)

    Have you ever considered writing an e-book or guest authoring on other
    sites? I have a blog centered on the same information you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my readers would value your
    work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an email.

[…] Mandy at The Well-Read Wife decided to start a book club.  She loves Michael Ian Black and he co-wrote a book with Meghan McCain, America, You Sexy Bitch.  These two political opposites decided to travel across the country together in an RV to see what they could find out about the state of our country.  Mandy generously offered the first 47 bloggers who responded a free book for her first book club.  I was happy that I made the cut.
