Cutie Patutie

Last week before we headed down to Santa Monica for Thanksgiving I was looking through my pile of 'to read' books. I've got a break from my current book club until January, so now was my time to read some of the books that have collected some MAJOR dust. I picked out two possibilities...both I received for Christmas LAST year. I know so pathetic. Anyway the first one I decided to read was Celebrity Detox by Rosie O'Donnell. I finished it on Monday I started it last Thursday. In case you need help with the math, that is a total of 4 days. FOUR DAYS! As some of you may know I am not a fast reader, and for me to finish a book in 4 days is somewhat of a miracle. Oh my gosh! A Christmas miracle! My first one of the season!

Five reasons I finished the book so quickly:

A) It's an easy read
B) It's non-fiction
C) I'm a sucker for the inside scoop on celebs
D) I love Rosie
E) I didn't want to clean the house

As much as I love behind the scenes info, what is also great about this book is how honest Rosie is. There is so much information out there, (online/TV/magazines), that half the time I take everything with a grain of salt.

I've also read Rosie's first book, Find Me, which I also really enjoyed. So if you are looking for a couple of quick reads and are a fan of Rosie, I highly recommend them. Put them on your Christmas lists ASAP!

Just like when you talk about football or Lost, I'm going to ignore you about Rosie. I'm so over her. What book are you reading now? I always like good book suggestions.

As you know, I read Rosie's first book because you
made me. It was very interesting, but I found out
just what a nut case she is, so I probably won't be reading the 2nd one (unless you make me do it, of course).
