12 Days of Books: Day 4

December 14, 2010

We’ll be featuring one short review a day from a member of our group from now until December 24 (excluding weekends) as part of our 12 Days of Books so check back daily! We’ll cover all age ranges, from baby through adult books. And at the end of the 12 days, we will offer one lucky reader the chance to win all 12 books to read yourself, give as gifts, or donate to your local schools or libraries. If you missed day 1, click here. Click here for day 2, and here for day 3.

Today’s review comes to us from Sarah!

I Feel Bad About My Neck And Others Thoughts on Being a Woman by Nora Ephron

This is a collection of humorous essays, originally written for newspapers and magazines, by the acclaimed journalist, author and screenwriter of romantic comedies like When Harry Met Sally and You’ve Got Mail. It was wildly popular when it was originally published almost 5 years ago so there’s a good chance you’ve already read it. However, if like me, you apparently had your head in the sand in 2006, you must read this book now. Here’s who will love it and why: women of all ages will appreciate the honest and hilarious take on all those little things in life that mystify us: purses, grooming, parenting, love, and aging in general. And if you’re in your 30’s, you will be inspired to wear a bikini on your next beach trip and you will look in the mirror every day and appreciate your neck, because one day you now know you’ll feel bad about it.

One more thing to note, I actually listened to the book on audio and highly recommend it – the author reads her essays and her tone is pitch perfect.
