So many women I know are going ga-ga over this book.

I decided to buy it to read on the plane last week. Let me just say, it’s not the kind of book you really want to sit and read crammed in between two older gentleman on an airplane.

“What’s that you’re reading there, missy? Oh it’s that book!”

Maybe I should have gotten the e-reader version instead:
