I've never been one to read what is recommended--one of my accord, but, this story is awesome, simply put!
When I read the little snit bit here, I was thinking 'Oh no! Did I sign up for this category, or no? I hope I did!' and I 'rushed' to my email, where I gave a sigh of relief--I DID click on this genra when I was joining--and thank God, too, because I'm in love with this story just after the First Chapter!
This is a somewhat humory story that I'm sure I will love, as well as fello readers.
I can't say what I loved the best in the first chapter, like I'm usually able to do because it was just one big serving of awesome writing, and there's nothing out there better than that.
I hope that the other who read this begin to love it as much as I have.
Oh, yes, this looks to be a great light hilarious read right from the get-go - love the "senuous" descriptive writing from the opening of the box to the final trying on of the shoe -
I don't have the shoe fettish myself, but remember my sister-in-law's closet overflowing with shoes to match every outfit -
Looking forward to the rest of this book -
I too have a closet full of shoes I adore. I just open the door and look at them sometimes. I have however not paid my electric bill or anyother bill for that matter, because I had to have thoes Stuart Weitzmans. This book seems like a great summer read, and one I can sadly relate to is someways. I'm going out to get this one today.
Don't want to rain on the parade - but tho' I also loved and laughed my way through the first read, this second one makes me wonder if the book is going to take a serious turn about addiction of any kind - will have to wait and see -
I re read my frist post and it sure doesn't sound like what I meant. What I was saying is, I have never picked a pair of shoes over a bill. I always pay my bills on time. I love my shoes, but I'm not willing to go to debtor prison for them. I will however take Doretha's advice and not buy the book, I'll check the local library. I never use the library because I always forget I have them, don't get them back in time and what do ya know, another bill.
Hey, chachi - I understood exactly what you meant - but since I love my local library with its website that I can check from home and see whether they have a particular book, and also most of the time there are also posted reviews, annotation, even excerpts, and also place a hold from here - can't imagine not using it -
Of course, I remember the days before computers when we still used the card catalogue - anyone out there not remember those? - took me a while to get used to the new-fangledness - but I finally came around - you know, it takes some of us more time to adust to something new and different -
But also, I have bought so many books over the years that now I usually only purchase if my library doesn't have and I think it's a book worth owning -
Having just read Confessions of a Shopaholic for my women's book club, this seemed to be a mirrored version of the same. Neither met my criteria for a good read -- I just need a book with a bit more crunch than either of these.
I'm usually not a "reader". But I was looking for something to do this summer and I found out about the online book club. So I thought to myself, "what's the worst that can happened?, I won't like the book". I signed up and am really liking this.
Shoe Addicts Anonymous is a really great book, especially for the summer by the beach or wherever you are. It is also a book people can relate to. Whenever I get to the bottom of the snippit of the day, I keep wondering "what happens next?". I am definately getting this book from the library to see how it ends!
Thanks for choosing this book and not a totally boring novel no one can understand.
Really not one of my favorties I did read the first few days emails but really never did get a sense that I would want to read this whole book. I doubt that I will be asking my local library to get this one any time soon.
