“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” – Albert Einstein

Okay, though the people actually keeping up with the book club may have dwindled to one, at least this month (and I am using the term ‘month’ very loosely) we are once again introducing a little more tell-all-gratuitous pop culture:

Nerd Girl Rocks Paradise City

Sorry, guys, it’s more chick lit.  But at least it’s chick lit of the Hard Rock variety:

From the Publisher

This hilarious peek into the early years of the hair-band era reveals the hierarchy of fishnets, bustiers, and chicks with the Holy Grail—a backstage pass. After college, Anne Thomas Soffee journeyed to Los Angeles to start a career as a rock journalist and small-time heavy-metal flack. A taste for other people’s prescriptions and too much beer edges her freelance journalism work right off her schedule. She struggles with not being thin enough, pretty enough, or cool enough when, in the midst of the L.A. riots, Soffee is offered a coveted slot in Virginia Commonwealth University’s MFA writing program. Determined to pull herself out of current habits, Soffee starts turning her life around, making a stop at rehab before she heads off to graduate school. Her quarter-life crisis is packed with offbeat characters that prove that fact is often funnier than fiction.

Let’s take this one until the end of May.  And please, at least let me know if you read it, ‘kay?

    I’m still in it!

    Actually I did read The Illuminator… I just read it last summer. And it couldn’t keep my interest then… and I never finished it. I tried to reread it especially after Sarah told me once you got over the hump it didn’t suck as much… but my copy has literally disappeared. One minute it was in my hands and the next – poof! Never to be seen from again… or at least it hasn’t bothered to reappear in almost 5 weeks.

    But I own this one… and I haven’t read it yet… and it looks like a great book to read on a long plane trip. Got another one for the return flight?

    Hmm…. $2.16? I can afford that. Umm… I’m still in, I swear, I’m just not keen on some of the books so far. But I’m ahead of the game – I’ve read Game of Thrones AND I just read Size 12 is not Fat!. 🙂
