You know how much we love books in this house and you know how much we love The Office so it should come as no surprise that when you combine the two (a book written by The Office actor and writer BJ Novak) we are big fans.

Have you heard of The Book With No Pictures by BJ Novak? I certainly hope so. It was a #1 New York Best Seller. As the books says,
“You might think a book with no pictures seems boring and serious. Except . . . here’s how books work. Everything written on the page has to be said by the person reading it aloud. Even if the words say . . .
BLORK. Or BLUURF.”
And if you know anything about kids, you know they love non-sense words like Blork or BLUURF. Dr. Suess, anyone?
And they love watching adults act silly…and maybe even embarrass themselves a little.
Well, Novak just upped the fun a few notches by writing My Book with No Pictures.
This version is full of fill-in-the-blank pages for even more fun. His style of writing reminds me of a combination of Dr. Suess and Shel Silverstein…especially Silverstein’s Uncle Shelby’s Book of ABZs.
In this version, you can either fill in the blanks with your own words or use the stickers provided in the back of the book.
My Book With No Pictures is pretty much twice as fun as the original, which is saying a lot.
Any book-lover and fan of generally silliness should own these two books.
