Chelsea Handler has started her own version of Oprah’s book club but unlike Harpo, she’s got her tits out during each meeting. The comedian took to her bathtub to chat with her fans about each book and give her opinion on the reads and even letting us know her favorite chapters. She’s calling the book club Get Lit With Chelsea which is a fun play on words considering she’s always stoned. Here are her current recommendations!
