Book #61 The Tender Bar by J.R. Moehringer

Friday, October 13th, 2006 by Miss Laura

One of the best memoirs I’ve read this year. It made me want to become a barfly in Long Island.

Any book which makes me want to be ANYTHING in Long Island is a miracle worker. Although, I did once get felt up by a girl in LI so maybe I shouldn’t be so harsh to judge it.

Book #60 The End by Lemony Snicket

Friday, October 13th, 2006 by Miss Laura

They should have entitled this one, “The Suck.”

And I was so looking forward to it as well. So excited that when I bought my copy I was jumping up and down while clapping. Plus, I was EXPECTING a bad ending. I just thought it would be bad as far as the poor orphans, not bad as in the writing and lack of the usual wit.

I don’t even have the heart to tell others as I sell it to them at the store. It is the end of the series and people are going to read it no matter what I say so I just try to keep from looking miserable.

Book # 59 Shopgirl by Steve Martin

Sunday, October 1st, 2006 by Miss Laura

Book 1 of 2 in a series entitled: “A customer at the store lent me this book without me asking for it, and I’m trying to read it and return it as soon as possible so that I do not do any damage to it and ruin my reputation with them forever.”

Book #58 Rise And Shine by Ann Quindlen

Sunday, October 1st, 2006 by Miss Laura

I read this new bestseller written by the author of a former Oprah Bookclub pick, because a lady at the gym told me it was good.

Why don’t I just shoot myself now?

This shoving books in by the fist fulls so that I will have things to recommend and discuss with customers during the rush of Christmas season (when I will have no time to read anything) is getting me down. To be honest, it always does. But then the season comes around and I will pine for the days when I was able to read so much, no matter what it was.
