When Anna Koval decides to creatively kill time at her library job in Austin by posting fabricated stories about her life on the Internet, it's only a matter of time before fact and fiction collide and force Anna to decide not only who she wants to be with, but who she wants to be. She was just writing a story.
When Anna Koval decides to creatively kill time at her library job in Austin by teaching herself HTML and posting partially fabricated stories about her life on the Internet, she hardly imagines anyone besides her friend Dale is going to read them. He's been bugging her to start writing again since her breakup with Ian over a year ago. And so what if the "Anna K" persona in Anna's online journal has a fabulous boyfriend named Ian? It's not like the real Ian will ever find out about it.

The story started writing itself.
Almost instantly Anna K starts getting e-mail from adoring fans that read her daily postings religiously. One devotee, Tess, seems intent on becoming Anna K's real-life best friend and another, a male admirer who goes by the name of "Ldobler," sounds like he'd want to date Anna K if she didn't already have a boyfriend. Meanwhile, the real Anna can't help but wonder if her newfound fans like her or the alter ego she's created. It's only a matter of time before fact and fiction collide and force Anna to decide not only who she wants to be with, but who she wants to be.

I found this book while meandering through the aisles of Barnes and Noble. The color and the title grabbed me (who says you can't judge a book by its cover?). I started reading the Barbie entry at the beginning and it grabbed me from the start and made me buy it, but I still have to say that the How to Fake a Football Orgasm, and the I Give You a Rack for the Day are my favorite of her entries. Sometimes I pull the book out just to reread those just for kicks. I've also lent it to each of my friends, and they all enjoyed it the same.

i felt like this character could be one of my friends. it's definitely a book that sums up my experience of my late 20s. i really identified with so much in this book.

Highly recommended for anyone whose ever written (or read) a blog, been dumped and just couldn't move on, or met someone through the internet.

Just finished it and ran (well not really, I am on crutches) downstairs to get Why Moms are Weird thinking it was a sequel, but it is not.It took me a while to get into the book. Not that it was hard to read but for me it was not laughing out loud although I did recognise some of the barbie stuff. ;), but when she wrote about the IM session, that got me started.This is just a fun read, especially nice to read during summers while lying on the beach. :)
