Tuesday

It feels like Friday already. I got one of the books I ordered for myself - "The Tuesday Erotica Club". It sounded interesting from this review that I read in Booklist:
What started out as a literary club composed of 40 law-firm employees who met at lunchtime to share their attempts at writing has devolved into four women who write erotica. Aimee created the group to take her mind off the fact that she's pregnant and her husband is increasingly absent. Lux, a young secretary working her way out of her degenerate neighborhood, uses the club as a way to learn from the other women. Brooke attends in support of her friend Aimee, works part-time at the firm, paints, and has had the same boyfriend for 20 years. At 50, Margot is successful but realizes that she has no female friends. Four very different women, who at first seem to have nothing in common, grow closer as each week passes--not that their relationships don't have problems--but therein lies the fun of reading Kovetz's sometimes raunchy but always entertaining account of four strong characters who become friends and, in the end, much more.

I also have on order Dave Barry's Christmas tome called: "The Shepherd, the Angel, and Walter the Christmas Miracle Dog". Here's the review from Publishers Weekly, lovingly lifted from Amazon.com:
Pulitzer Prize-winning humorist Barry (Big Trouble) spins a nostalgic tale about a boy and his dog on Christmas Eve, 1960. Junior-high schooler Doug Barnes is playing a shepherd in the Christmas pageant at the bat-infested Episcopal Church. When the Barnes family dog dies on Christmas Eve, Doug and his father end up adopting a shelter dog, Walter, a charmer who manages to wreck the pageant. Accompanying Barry's snappy narrative are photos and goofy advertisements from the period. Barry is a crowd pleaser and doesn't disappoint with this tale. © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

It's in a "secondary warehouse" at Ingram, according to the person who gets the orders and the excuses for not getting orders from them. It'll probably come in when I have no money.... Sigh...
