Title: Ten Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives
Author: Dr. Laura Schlessinger
Finished: March 25, 2010
I try to avoid overly cheesy self help type books because really it always seems like the same thing over and over. This specific book was recommended by a friend who read it found herself about to follow in the footsteps of one of the women. I figure it couldn’t hurt and in the end realized I probably could have benefited from reading this book years ago.
Dr. Laura Schlessinger goes over 10 different areas that women continue to make mistakes without ever realizing it. She relates short stories, full conversations and her own personal opinion into so many areas I’m sure I will need to buy my own copy so I can refer back should I find myself dating a guy who falls into one of these categories. It’s hard to cover it all, but for women of all ages, this book could definitely been beneficial in seeing the truth. Sometimes it’s hard to hear and I have no idea if I would really listen to a book if I were in one of them currently, but it could also serve as a forewarning when starting to date again. Or just for pure entertainment.
I found myself shaking my head at so many of the stories hoping I don’t make some of these stupid mistakes, and laughing at how I already have. It was a fun and quick read.

Join the Read-a-Thon HERE!
The sign-ups have finally arrived and I very excited that I am completely available for the Spring Read-a-Thon taking place on April 10, 2010 – my start time is 6am.
I finally finished my Spring Reading Thing challenge list a few days ago and have so many fun and easy things on it. I will slowly start working on my list over the week, but I have a feeling it will consist majorly of Nancy Drew books and some other fun things along the way. Depending on my energy level I need to make a dent in Anna Karenina as well so hopefully I can do that as well.
Bookjourney over at One Persons Journey through a world of books is now hosting this event.
Not the most productive reading week but I’m gearing up for the Spring Read-a-Thon and will hopefully be able to make a big dent in the list of books I want to read this spring.
