read 'em and weep

i just ordered two books off amazon and together they cost less than $10 - - AND one of them is a hardback.  i freaking love the internet.
both of these books are memoirs.
one funny and one, not.

about the book (found here)

Matt and Liz Logelin were high school sweethearts. After years of long-distance dating, the pair finally settled together in Los Angeles, and they had it all: a perfect marriage, a gorgeous new home, and a baby girl on the way. Liz’s pregnancy was rocky, but they welcomed Madeline, beautiful and healthy, into the world on March 24, 2008.
Just twenty-seven hours later, Liz suffered a pulmonary embolism and died instantly, without ever holding the daughter whose arrival she had so eagerly awaited. Though confronted with devastating grief and the responsibilities of a new and single father, Matt did not surrender to devastation; he chose to keep moving forward– to make a life for Maddy.
follow matt's blog... i do.

about the book (found here)
In this raucous collection of true-life stories, actress and comedian Chelsea Handler recounts her time spent in the social trenches with that wild, strange, irresistible, and often gratifying beast: the one-night stand.

i thought after maddy's story, i might need chelsea to lighten the mood.
anyone read these?
is another one of chelsea's books better?
