Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists! Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists.

Title – Passive aggressive notes: Painfully polite and hilariously hostile writings, and just plain aggressive

Author – Kerry Miller

Found – As one of my coworkers was checking the item into the system on June 02, he said, “Jorie, you’ve got to see this.” I later asked if he was trying to tell me something.

From the back cover – “Part voyeuristic entertainment, part group therapy, Passive Aggressive Notes offers a fascinating look at the all-too-familiar frustrations of embattled office drones, apartment dwellers, parents, and pet owners everywhere…”

Did I check it out? – No, but I requested it.
