I am just finishing this book and although somewhat entertaining, am tempted not to finish it. The story gets old - picture a self-centered arrogant 30-something who lands six figure paychecks in the boom days of the advertising industry - who then gets laid off, stays at home to watch the Price is Right, almost loses the luxury apartment that defines her self-image, applies for jobs for 2 years and complains the whole time about how everyone is wrong about her. Inspired by her endless free days and her frustration for being rejected by seemingly every employer for 2 years, Jen creates a website in which to bitch and complain online...the one interesting part of this book is the letters she receives from readers of her blog - but near the end, even these don't redeem this boring read. If you want to read about how the rich and self-congratulatory live and how they can plummet from the top to the bottom in mere minutes (which is actually a little funny), this is the book for you. Otherwise, read Bridget Jones for amazingly, a more substantial read.

What a fabulous book - this is a tale of William as he travels across the US after "taking a break" from his job - he meets so many average yet fascinating individuals, learns about local lore and about the past inhabitants of these towns. This book revealed simply yet beautifully how the mundane can become the extraordinary.

Bookends is a super fast and fun read - look at one-fast friends and how their lives take the dips and turns back into each other. A little too stark portrayal of single women past 30 (gasp!) and similar to Bridget Jones in the message that the main character cannot be happy until a man is in her life, but overall a good, light read!

GREAT book! This story is about Maclaine's pilgrimage through the long, arduous but enlightening Santiago de Compostela Camino in Spain. Read about her visions, her clashes with the press and meet the quirky and yet fascinating characters she meets along the way. Worth the read!


Care Packages : Letters to Christopher Reeve from Strangers and Other Friends
Review Date: 4/14/2008


This book - compiled by Christopher's wife Dana - is wonderful in that it exposes the raw heart of his fans, reaching out in an attempt to help or sympathize. It is a quick read but it won't leave you forgetting.

James McBride tells his story - a story about his life and that of his Mother - written in clear and not easy to put down words. James is black, as are his 11 brothers and sisters - his Mother is white. This is a true American Dream come true - and for all of the hope it gives, it is not saccharine. Highly recommended.

If you are pregnant and feel that you may experience post partum depression, or are post-birth and experiencing it now - this is the book you need. Brooke has been there done that and she will make you feel less alone and more like a human being going through a physical change. She advocates natural remedies and testing your estrogen and thyroid (Personally I found an estrogen replacement helped immensely as my estrogen was less than 0 - though very very few doctors even think of testing it). Love this book and frankly, she helped pull me up and away from the edge I was on.

I LOVED this book - very intimate portrayal of a young girl in trouble and how Rosie O'Donnell helps her - you learn a lot about Rosie as well! Written in informal language and filled with Rosie's energetic style, I give this book 5 stars!
