    1. As a library processing clerk, I deal with a variety of books ALL DAY LONG. Truth be told, I didn't intend to read this entire book today while I was working, but when I peeked inside the cover, behind the confessional, I just kept going. Smiling and softly chuckling (so no one would know that I was reading while I should have been working) I just kept reading, and finished "Midnight Confessions" before I got behind in my other clerical assignments. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, especially the [...]


    2. This was a hilarious book. It has such quick funny read. Everyone should just flip through it and get a couple of laughs. Every page was a laugh. I also enjoyed the last section of the book that included people's tweets with their confessions. You have to read every page!~April


    3. Kind of a funny read. This book reminds me of when Jimmy Fallon reads Tweets that have themes which is the only reason why I picked this book up at the library. Nothing much to say about this book lol


    4. I know I will never get back the 15 to 20 minutes it took to read Stephen Colbert's newest book but I'm okay with that because he made me laugh- A LOT! He starts it off with "Bless me, readers, for I have published. It's been five years since my last book." and closes with blank lined paper for readers to list their own midnight confessions.**In between that auspicious beginning and his creative, if bland, ending are funny though sometimes cringe-worthy, often snarky, & definitely asinine co [...]


    5. Who does not love Stephen Colbert? This is a very short, quick read that will just bring tears to your eyes as you laugh out loud. Don't read in public, people will wonder. I loved it! He is simply AWESOME!


    6. Wow, that was a quick and hilarious read. If you like Stephen Colbert, you'll love this.



    7. Pretty much what you'd expect. I love this segment on his show, though a book was unnecessary in my opinion. You can get a few chuckles out of it if you are bored but you can just look up the videos on youtube.


    8. I've always been an avid Stephen Colbert fan (since I was like 12). He in my opinion is one of the most sophisticated comedians of our time; his jokes are hilarious yet insightful, and really force us to think of not just how we view ourselves politically but socially and morally as well. Yet, he can also be just plain goofy which I think fully shows his full range of comedic talent a la Robin Williams. So, when I saw this book at the library I just had to have it!First, I realized that this boo [...]


    9. I confess that, although I enjoy Stephen Colbert on The Late Show (such wonderful snarkiness!), I didn’t want to spend $20 on this book; so I borrowed it from the library. A lot of it is amusing, and I laughed out loud at parts of it.


    10. I've read that this is nothing more than a collection of one-liners from Colbert's show. A few laugh out load moments. I do wish there were more 'confessions' from God: "Sometimes when people pray to me, I just nod politely like I'm actually listening!" It is a light easy read. For those of us old enough, recall Steve Martin's 'Cruel Shoes'.


    11. I love Colbert and if it wasn't for his show, 45 would probably have induced me to either suicide or much stronger drugs by now. And 'Midnight Confessions' is always a highlight of his show - but many of these are just recycled from said show, so I already had heard them And since at least 50% of the fun is in Stephen's delivery - the book obviously lacks something. But as it takes about 15 minutes to 'read' - tops - it isn't a huge investment - as long as you get it from the library, like I did [...]



    12. Less than 30 minute read . Reminded me of the picture books I used to read to my kids.I did chuckle at a few of the jokes especially the one about changing the bedsheets (right ladies) but honestly I expected to really delve into reading a book and this was more a pure flip and skim deal.Sorry Stephen



    13. “I know how to fold fitted sheets, but I will never tell my wife.” “I think riding a roller coaster is the most fun thing in the world. Then again, I’ve never tried crack.” If you think those are hilarious gems, take a good look at yourself in the mirror bc ur wrong and u should feel bad.


    14. Bought this book as a birthday present for myself, to cheer self up. It worked!A fun, often hilarious, and quick read!Was wondering how well the Late Show segment would translate into book form, and it actually worked out splendidly. In some cases the illustrations add another dimension of hilarity.


    15. This was beyond silly -- I watch his show as often as I can stay awake that late, and laugh a lot. This book wasn't funny enough for even much of a smile. Waste of time.




    16. One of the best books if you need a quick laugh. As a Catholic I get a kick out this segment on the Late Show. Now I can read my favorite moments anywhere.




    17. Favorite confession: One time I saw a lion attack a warthog in a nature documentary, and I whispered, "Hakuna matata, bitch."





    18. 1.5/5 starsI just didn't find this funny at all, but I liked the concept. There were one or two 'confessions' that made me chuckle for a second, but that's it.


    19. This was a short book of jokes based on the segment Stephen Colbert does The Late Show. Laugh-out-loud funny on multiple occasions, it was a quick, fun read.
