If you want to be disgusted with that meaty dinner you just shoved down your pie hole read this book! Skinny Bitch is a snarky attack on the food industry. It promotes a vegan life style and breaks down why you should give up dairy, beef, pork, fish and everything else that makes you rub yo feet while you eat. I read the book in three hours and quickly passed it along to my moms who still eats chitlins’. The New York Times bestseller contains snippets from interviews with people who used to work at slaughterhouses. Need I say more? One theory it promotes: when chickens, cows and pigs are slaughtered they release adrenaline which taints the meat. When we eat that meat we consume that anger, fear and rage. Far fetched? Not sure, but it makes sense. I haven’t eaten beef or pork since college, but after reading Skinny Bitch, I gave up the rest. We’ll see how long it lasts. I did look up some reviews and the book has been attacked by some scientists and the like who claim they checked the studies quoted in the book but couldn’t find the sources. So, read and use your judgment. Happy reading!

White House dog, Bo Obama, is an authorist like Maya Wilkes. Mascot Books will release “Bo, America’s Commander in Leash” this month. The Virginia-based company started the book before Bo was even chosen by the First Family.
In the book, Bo serves as the narrator and takes readers on a tour of the White House.
The book is destined to sell more that Bow Weakzy. The company already has 50,000 preorders and plans to print 100,000 copies of the book which retails for $14.95.

I just finished reading Steve Harvey’s new book, “Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man: What Men Really Think About Relationships, Intimacy and Commitment”. I heard a lot about this book and had my initial reservations but I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The radio talk show host and comic said he came up with the idea after receiving so many questions from his women listeners about how men think. Much of the book is full of what I call the no “no duh” ditties: set standards and expectations, the 90-day rule for sex (cough, cough), and why men cheat (because they can) This chapter was the most interesting and provided a lot of insight on how men operate. Steve also confirmed something that I’ve been preaching for years, if all women formed a “no bullshit” alliance, we could run the world! I found “Act Like A Lady…” to be a good read and a good pick for a book club. I do wish Steve would have covered more relationship scenarios, but he was solid in the issues he discussed. I would give the book a 7 on a scale of 1 – 10.

“The Five Love Languages for Singles” by Gary Chapman is a must read! It helps singles understand why there are dust bunnies on the other side of their beds – sans a temporary pit stop or two…or ten!
According to Chapman, everyone speaks a different “love language” and finding out which language one each speaks is vital to good relationships with your mate, your mom, even the lady who waxes your situation!
The Five Love Languages:
Words of Affirmation
Acts of Service
If you’re not sure of your love language there are some quizzes in the book to help you figure it out.
“Love Languages” contained some eye-opening research by Eric Fromm who was a student of Sigmund Freud’s:
“The obvious clinical facts demonstrate that men and women who devote their lives to unrestricted sexual satisfaction do not attain happiness, and very often suffer from severe neurotic conflicts or symptoms. The complete satisfaction of all instinctual needs is not only not a basis for happiness, it does not even guarantee sanity”.
Interesting right? No wonder we have songs like, “Bust Your Windows” or “Jumping (Out the window)” or “Rehab”. According to the book: too much coochie can make you coo-coo! As if we didn’t know.
