Readers' Room

So, I um, may or may not be reading this book. And I may or may not have read the earlier two in the series. I swear I do read "smart" stuff a lot of the time, but sometimes you just have to turn it off for a little while.

Plus, it's pretty snappily written and is at turns poignant and funny. So, why don't you join me as we travel along the bumpy roads of life and love with darling Jessica Darling.

Next time we'll read some Orhan Pamuk, I promise.

(Though I think Snow is secretly just about boys.)

Um, the fourth one is pretty good too.

Don't feel bad. I found the fourth (which I didn't know existed) and squealed like a little bitch.

The hell with serious literature. I'm still sincerely hoping the Trixie Belden series wins the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Are you fucking kidding me? Of course it's serious literature! She'd be hotter if she were Indian though1 ;)
