I've started reading "I'm Not the New Me" by Wendy McClure (ISBN: 1594480745), described as "A brave bittersweet look at weight, loss, and elusive happy endings."  I'll admit I'm not finding it crack-me-up, laugh-out-loud funny, but McClure writes well. I'm not posting this to shill for a credit, but I'm really puzzled as I'd have thought there'd be a substantial demand as with similar books.

I guess there's plenty to go around!

It's hard to tell sometimes!  I have found books in my book hunts I was positive would be on wishlists but were not.

It's really hard to call.Like you wait forever to get a book on your wish list.Everyone seems to want them.But then when you post another one in that series ,it just sits there.You just never know.
