Mad About Max by Lisa Plumley...  Starting out pretty good and a bit quirky...  Eclectic vintage/thrift store owner finds herself entranced by hot business guy in boxer briefs trying to get back all his work clothes after ex-girlfriend donates them all cool.

I loved that Tucker Max book but it made me feel kind of dirty :-)

I'm starting "Tales from the Crib" and then have "The Queen Gene" for right after it.

I know what you mean, Heather. It's definitely a guilty pleasure. I think I like his friend Slingblade more than him!

I just finished Twenties Girl.  I was really sad when I finished it - I think I will miss Lara and Sadie! I'm about to start The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

I'm about to start "Cruise Confidential," which is one of those "secret behind the scenes peeks" from a guy who spent a year working on a cruise ship. I'm very excited, as I just got off my fifth cruise 2 weeks ago and am already planning my next. I LOVE cruising and think it is the best way to travel. I doubt this book will put me off it (I love those behind the scenes type books) and have been saving it for my trip to the gym in hopes it will keep me on the treadmill longer than usual! :-)

I'm reading See Jane Date. It's a very small book that is taking me forever to read!

I just finished in one day Match Me If You Can.  Such a great story. Is Susan Elizabeth Phillips considered chick lit.  I'm think she's borderline.
