I enjoy movie previews. Seriously. Not to say I appreciate every preview I see. There are times I actually want to watch the movie (instead of spending 5 minutes fast forwarding to get to MENU). One of my close friends closes his eyes during previews. His reasoning? He doesn't want to spoil the movie if he might ever see it. I can understand the logic, but I need a teaser. It's the same way with books. I'll be honest, I have grand plans to read all the books in my TBR pile, but it takes a push for a book to land in my purse or on the nightstand. Today I got "pushed" by a blog posting about Doree Lewak's "The Panic Years: A Guide to Surviving Smug Married Friends, Bad Taffeta, and Life on the Wrong Side of 25 Without a Ring".
If the "previews" for this book are telling of what's found between the covers, then I can justify adding it to my wish list. Let me ask you this: Are you one of the millions suffering from the Panic Years? Watch Doree Lewak humorously diagnose the tell-tale signs of The Panic Years. If any of this sounds familiar, then you've got to read this book with me.
