Funny Amazon Reviews

by Jane Lynch
Narrated by A WHOLE Bunch of People
We go hard on Jane Lynch and an unsuspecting Anna Kendrick. Once upon a time, there was a magical land where everyone was able to buy anything you could imagine and have it delivered to your house in 5-7 business days, as well as leave personal (sometimes hilarious) opinions about that purchase to help guide others to have the ultimate buying experience. That magical land is called...Amazon. Join Britney and Brad as they discuss the audiobook, Funny Amazon Reviews, by Jane Lynch. This book is pretty much Jane Lynch being Sue from Glee being Jane Lynch. Thank you to Paul from for being a producer on this episode!

A classic novel. A smash hit TV Show. And now an AudioShelf episode.
