One Night Stands+ Midgets & Alcohol = The Perfect Commute

Looking for a quick and easy read for my commute to work, I picked up My Horizontal Life by Chelsea Handler. A hilarious autobiographical collection of one-night stands, I found myself laughing out loud throughout.  Her adventures range from an “accidental” one nighter with an 18-year-old ballerina to waking up in bed with a midget. Crazy family members and friends add to this roller-coaster romp through one woman’s very personal approach to her social life.—Caitlin O’Malley

D.V. by Diana Vreeland, $14.10

d.v.The autobiography of the grand dame of American fashion—think Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute—is filled with her obsessions in high and low fashion (she loved pink poodles); personal eccentricities (she had her maid iron her money every morning); and classic quotes like, “Blue jeans are the most beautiful things since the gondola,” and “pink is the navy blue of India.”
