New Book


Certain Girls was good. For some reason, with Good In Bed and Certain Girls, near the end I was just ready to get the book over with. I don't know why. I definitely liked Certain Girls much better than I liked Good In Bed but of course you can't read Certain Girls without reading Good In Bed... Oh well. One of the things I like the best about Jennifer Weiner is that she writes about girls and that is always fun!!

I have started doing www.paperbackswap.com. Have you heard of it? A few people have told me about it over the last few months or so. I finally took the time to check it out. You put books on there that you would be willing to get rid of. Once you put your first 10 books on then you get 2 credits. One credits is good for you to get one book. Then everytime someone wants a book from you and you mail it to them, you get another credit. With your credits, you look and see if someone has a book you want and ask them for it. It is free. The only thing is that when someone wants a book from you, you have to pay to have it mailed to them. The average amount is about $2.30.

SO, about a month ago I decided to get the first book in the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella. It is called Confessions of a Shopaholic. I have read one other book by her (Undomestic Goddess) and enjoyed it so I thought I would try this one out. The funny thing is that about a week ago I saw that this is being made into a movie that comes out on February 13th. When I finished Certain Girls, because the movie is coming out, I decided this was going to be the next book I read. It will be fun to see the movie after I read it.

As always, I will let you know how it goes.

Let me know how you like the book. I kind of want to see the movie, but I thought about reading the book first. Maybe that can be our book club...read the book, and then see the movie together!! Sounds great!

I'm glad you finally checked out Paperback Swap. I got the whole Sisterhood series from them. Let me know about this one too. I saw the trailer for the movie this weekend and it looked good, but I know the books are always better.
