Preaching to the Choir

I must echo Vivi Andrews. Awhile ago, she reviewed this book and stated, "I would say that this book is a must buy for fans of Smart Bitches, but I'm certain all true fanatics already have their copy." Yeah, I'm probably a little late jumping on the bandwagon. You'll have to forgive me. I've had my nose buried in a pile of grading!

Most of our readers are probably already fans of the snarktastic Smart Bitches (and therefor probably already own the book). If not, gentle reader, rush out and get a copy!

Here's what others in the blogosphere have to say about this fantastic book:

"It’s snigger and giggle and burst out loud laughing funny, it’s perceptive, it’s enlightening, it’s incredibly well-researched, and it’s just plain fun. It will convince your readers to shout out loud from the rooftops that they’re romance readers. Or at least to raise a suggestive eyebrow at the sneering bookstore clerk when they buy their books."
(Dear Author)

"English/Lit grad students working with romance novels: Smart Bitches just pwned your thesis. Scrap what you got and start over. Think I’m kidding? Ignore my advice and you will Not Pass Go and Collect $200 you’ll just go straight to FAIL."
(Love Romance Passion)

"FUN! As someone with a BA and MA in English literature AND enjoys the occasional romance novel, it was a relief to read a book that defends the genre for what it is: a genre that's not much different than mysteries, thrillers of John Clancy novels -- just with more, um, man titty." (Book a Week with Jen)

I have not read it yet. But I did make it to Candy's signing in Tukwila. That was fun! And I bought the book, but my TBR pile is quite impossible right now. The excerpts she read were hilarious!

LOL great post, I haven't read it either but anything that guarantees a snorting laugh is definitely worth looking into.

I ordered it today from Santoro's, my local bookstore, to read on a cross-country airplane trip in two weeks. Is it the type of book I can read with my three and five year-olds in the row? Big Boy has taught himself how to read from road signs and bus schedules, but I'm gambling the "itch" sound combination is still a bit complex, so I can read this in front of him. Or I could do the brown-paper book wrap.
