Beach Reads

P.S. - I'm in need of a couple good paperback books to take with me on vacation.  I got the Obama Book, Dreams of My Father; but now I need some serious chick lit.  Read any good ones lately?

Eat, Pray, Love (do NOT recommend it to a man)

Just about anything in the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters

Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man (more self-help than chick lit, I guess).

The Game by Neil Strauss (okay, not chick lit but you can really get good and outraged).

Okay, apparently I have no idea what chick lit even is!

"Bel Canto", by Ann Patchett.

Um, please don't read the Obama book on your vacation. I'll check my bookshelf when I go home for lunch. I know my sister just stole a bunch of them, but there should still be a good read or two there....

I bet you would LOVE laurie notaro. Any of her stuff is great, and her writing style is very similar to yours. Reading her stuff is like settling in with an awesome cup of coffee and your smartest, funniest girlfriend who is full of amusing stories.

i have "why men love bitches" sitting on the shared shelf at work - want me to send it???

i was told that chasing harry winston was cute, as were the other (not something borrowed/blue) emily giffen books (though you may have read those already)

Oprah highlighted Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man yesterday (I listen to it on my daily ride home) and while I normally immediately write off Oprah recommendations, the writer was a hoot!

I just read the sequel to Chocolat and while I can't remember the name of it, it was pretty good (Dover Lib has it).

If you have never read Memoirs of a Geisha, take that too.
