Finally here, folks: my article about dating books for guys, which includes short reviews of The Pocket Idiot’s Guide to Getting Girls, Rules of the Game and This Book Will Get You Laid, books 23, 24 and 25 from this ‘book a week’ series.
If you’re wondering about the “Love – the getting” title, you might want to take a peek at the article that ran alongside it called “Love – the giving”. My article is on the left hand side of an image of a tree, and Lisa Scottoline’s was on the right. And even though my mom’s miffed they didn’t run my picture, I don’t mind. Maybe the guy I wrote about won’t realize it was him (because, really, how often do you look at bylines? I read this article all the way through without knowing Kristin Graham wrote it — and I’m a writer. You would expect I’d pay attention!)
Today also marks Frank Wilson’s last review as book editor. I expected a farewell column, but, in true Frank style, he dedicated that space to a book review — a review of a poetry book, at that.
Fortunately, Frank will continue to share his thoughts through the blogsphere — he’ll continue his wildly popular blog Books, Inq here.
