Just started this book over the weekend and I am enjoying it so far.  Did anyone else read it and what did you think?

I just finished it on my way to work this morning.  It was a quick chic lit read and I enjoyed it.  It is about the sexual escapades of a girl in DC- and how she starts a blog while working at the senate and gets busted.  Not the best book ever- but definitely an enjoyable one.  If anyone is interested in reading it, I have it with me today and can mail it out today- you will have it by the weekend.

I liked it because it was based off of events that really happened in Washington DC.

I thought it was good. At the end I was torn between feeling sorry for her and feeling like she got what she deserved. It makes you think all the men in D.C. are perves! :)

If you liked the Washingtonienne (I did), you might try Dog Days by Ana Marie Cox.

It's about a young woman working on a presidential campaign who's having an affair with a married political journalist. It's much of the same political / sexual scandals / Washington DC themes as in the Washingtonienne. I really enjoyed it.

I have a near-new paperback copy (only read once) on my shelf if you're interested. :)

I was tempted to order the audio of this and kept putting it off due to some of the reviews. I just went and ordered it.
