Read Carry This Book Online Free - From the mind of Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson comes this wonderfully weird and weirdly wonderful illustrated look at the world around us—all through the framework of the things we carry.
With bright, quirky, and colorful line drawings, Jacobson brings to life actual and imagined items found in the pockets and purses, bags and glove compartments of real and fantastical people—whether it’s the contents of Oprah’s favorite purse or Harry Potter’s duffel bag, Amelia Earhart’s pencil case or Bernie Madoff’s suitcase.
How many self-tanning lotions are in Donald Trump’s weekender? What’s inside Martha Stewart’s hand-knit fanny pack? What kind of protein bars does Michelle Obama hide in her tiny clutch at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner? Carry This Book provides a humorous and insightful look into how the things we carry around every day can make up who we are.

"I have always been intrigued by what people carry around with them. It can tell you everything. I like how people organize their things, their wallets, their cars, their bags, etc. We are curating our worlds almost constantly with the items we choose to bring with us." –Abbi Jacobson

I picked this as a "Librarian Recommendation" for my 2017 reading challenge. I went in blind, knowing literally nothing. Given that, my one star does not indicate it is not a good book . . . for someone else. The humor is not my kind of humor and wow, I really didn't enjoy it at all. :(

I'm happy to share an obsession with what people carry around with them with Abbi. The love and patience that went into this book is so incredible; can you imagine using all those markers?
I'm particularly fond of the Leslie Knope and Ilana Wexler pages. Tori, thank you so much for this book, I l...

This was just added to my Amazon wish list! What a cute, fun, insightful book of art. I already love Abbi (from Broad City of course) and I love seeing her combine art and comedy! If you're looking for a book to buy that funny pop culture junky in your life - this is it.

What a delightful book! I thoroughly looked at and enjoyed every single page. I feel like Abbi and I would be friends IRL. I love her details; I envy her style; I dig her humor. The amount of overlap between the items in our toiletry bags is startling. I legit learned important things while readi...

Fun concept! I especially liked looking at everyone's key rings. Would be a fun art project to do to get to know kids at the beginning of the school year. "You are what you carry. Draw what's in the bag(s) you carry every day." Would rather do it on the first day of school when bags are cleaner....

This fabulous book is on my mental shelf with Maira Kalman's brilliant books. The marker art was something I don't see often and I liked it, but didn't *love* it, but that is a personal preference--she did a great job with it!

This would be a dope coffee table book! It's silly and fun and delightful in all the ways Broad City is.

Sometimes cool girls from great TV shows get book deals (I'm looking at you LENA) and they are pretty good but if they were not on a TV show, they would NOT have gotten that book deal and they wouldn't have earned it. That said, it's absolutely fine and totally enjoyable that they did get that bo...

I love knowing what other people have in their purses/bags. One of my favorite types of videos on YouTube are the "what's in my purse/bag" ones. When I saw this book I just had to read it. The book wasn't as good as I thought it would be. It was actually kind of boring.
