  • Heidi Pitlor: The Birthdays

    Heidi Pitlor: The Birthdays
    I'm loving this story about 3 siblings who gather to celebrate their dad's 75th birthday. It's frightening how many similarities there are with the Millers in the novel, and the Denise real-life siblings.

  • Susan Choi: American Woman

    Susan Choi: American Woman
    I'm reading this because I saw it on SuperSpecialK's bookshelf once and she told me I should read it. I'm having a bit of a hard time getting into it, but I think I'm supposed to.

  • Ayelet Waldman: Love and Other Impossible Pursuits

    Ayelet Waldman: Love and Other Impossible Pursuits
    Maybe it's because I like this author's husband's writing so much--but I've lapped up both of Ayelet Waldman's novels eagerly.

  • Martha Sherrill: The Ruins of California

    Martha Sherrill: The Ruins of California
    I loved this book, and burned through it in a day. A good read for many reasons, but particularly if you have a soft spot for San Francisco or California in general.

i refuse to even contemplate the Skinny Jean. Boot legs are God's Gift to Women With Hips (not that you're included in that list, of course) and I refuse to budge.

And i SO wanted to go to the pop-up store. I almost flew to LA for the day just to go.


Skinny jeans are simply wrong. In high school, I had to lay down to zip up a pair of jeans and then I walked around like a member of Devo in them because I could not bend my knees. I anticipate more of the same with this latest trend. At least Project Runway's Laura wears jodphurs--much more civilized, no?
