We all have those inside jokes and funny memories with our best friends and through this book you can re-live them all.

    22. A Golden Girls book, because you absolutely are going to be thick as thieves until you're 90. Who cares if you met at work? They're your person.

    Promising review: "At first glance, Emma Lewis's book is an entertaining guide to the long-running and enduringly popular TV sitcom, The Golden Girls, but anyone who has done themselves the favor of reading it will have discovered that it is so much more than that. Thank You for Being A Friend: Life According to the Golden Girls is one of those rare books that leaves its reader with an inner warmth โ€” one actually 'feels' the friendship, love and laughter that made the show such a hit flowing from the pages as one reads. Of course, this would not have possible were it not for Lewis' obvious love for the show, which permeates every word." โ€”Steven Churchhill

    Get it from Amazon for $13.46.

    You and your work wife.
