It’s my birthday! Feel free to send $ via paypal to kim (@) mommyknows (dot) com. I promise to spend it frivolously.
Kidding … sheesh!
Anyway, even though I’m one of those bloggers who shamelessly asks for $, I am also one of those bloggers who likes to give you the books laying around her house.
Happy Birthday to me and Happy Book Day to YOU!
Remember a while back, I went Christmas shopping, and came home with a b’zillion gifts for me? Remember the book that I hid from my lovely husband and could hardly wait to read? This is it –> ‘little earthquakes’ by Jennifer Weiner.
The good news is, it’s a fun read! The bad news is, I hopped into to bed early, all excited to read it, flipped it over to read the back cover (I like to know what’s going to happen) and realized that I had ALREADY read it! FRICK, I hate it when they publish the same darn book with different covers! Don’t you? Is it a ploy to make lazy book buyers like me who don’t bother reading the back until they’re all tucked up at home; buy the same book twice? Is it? Probably not, but I’m still not impressed. Pick a cover and stick with it Washington Square Press.
I was going to take it back, but my extreme lazy streak (and MS fatigue) keeps me from looking for receipts and making my way in -30c weather to stores filled with bitchy shoppers to get a refund for a book, I know ONE of you might like.
Here is what the first paragraph on the back of the book says:
Jennifer Weiner’s richest, wittiest, most true-to-life novel yet tells the story of three very different women as they navigate one of life’s most wonderful and perilous transitions: the journey of new motherhood.
If you think you might like to have this, leave me a comment. I’d also like to point out that I don’t think this her wittiest book … I loved, loved, loved ‘Good in Bed’ (I was positive it was about me, when I saw the title!!). I’ll pick just one of you (randomly) to win. Just like all of my other book giveaways, you have to promise to pass it forward.
Happy Book Day to YOU!
