Title: ‘Tis the Season to Feel Inadequate: Holidays, Special Occasions and Other Times Our Celebrations Get Out of Hand


Author: Dorothy Rosby


Voice Actor/Narrator: Dorothy Rosby (The author)


Genre: Humorous Essays


Book Blurb:


Tis the Season to Feel Inadequate is a collection of humorous essays about how we let our expectations steal the joy out of Christmas and other holidays and special events. It’s understanding for those who think Christmas form letters can be honest—or they can be interesting. And it’s empathy for anyone who’s ever gotten poison ivy during Nude Recreation Week or eaten all their Halloween candy and had to hand out instant oatmeal packets to their trick-or-treaters.

Author Biography:


Dorothy Rosby is an author and humor columnist whose work appears regularly in publications in the West and Midwest. She also had a career in radio and did a lot of voiceover work. She felt comfortable recording her own audiobook right up until she had to pronounce “friggatriskaidekaphobia” and “paraskevidekatriaphobia” (both of which refer to a fear of Friday the 13th) and “hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia” which refers to a fear of very large words. Honest. Listen to the book to find out how well she did—or didn’t do.

I listen to audiobooks occasionally while cleaning or in the car. I don’t have a fave.
