My Custom Van: And 50 Other Mind-Blowing Essays That Will Blow Your Mind All Over Your Face by Michael Ian Black
My Custom Van: And 50 Other Mind-Blowing Essays That Will Blow Your Mind All Over Your Face

Sharon Wilson, November 7, 2008

I made the mistake of reading this book on the bus. I was trying not to bother my fellow commuters so I was constantly biting my bottom lip to keep from laughing out loud too much. Biting my lower lip resulted in silent convulsions. I couldn’t stop laughing (convulsing) and pretty soon I was in tears – tears of joy.

Belly Laughs: The Naked Truth about Pregnancy and Childbirth

Amusing and gross, but then again what would you expect when reading a book written by Jenny McCarthy.

The Abortionist's Daughter: A Novel by Elisabeth Hyde
The Abortionist's Daughter: A Novel

Sharon Wilson, October 10, 2008

If I were to use 1 word to describe this book it would be: FANTASTIC.
I read this book in a day and a half and could barely tear myself away from it the 1st night I started reading it. The only reason I was able to stop reading was because I was so dead tired I could barely keep my eyes open.
Well developed characters and a great story line.

The Girls Who Went Away: The Hidden History of Women Who Surrendered Children for Adoption in the Decades Before Roe V. Wade by Ann Fessler
The Girls Who Went Away: The Hidden History of Women Who Surrendered Children for Adoption in the Decades Before Roe V. Wade

Sharon Wilson, October 10, 2008

This book provided facts along with personal stories about adoptions and adoptive practices before it was acceptable to be a single (woman) parent. The personal stories told from the mother’s perspective are both heartbreaking and triumphant. I could not begin to imagine what these women went through and the hurt they lived with after making such a decision.

This is the perfect beach read – it is like reading a gigantic gossip magazine!
