I Feel Bad About My Neck

And Other Thoughts On Being A Woman by Nora Ephron

I borrowed this audio book from my sister Framed after she reviewed it. Framed is 5 years younger than me so I'm sure she laughed more than me because some of this stuff hasn't hit her as hard. I say, "Just wait. Just wait!"

Actually, I don't remember crying once, but I did laugh a lot. This book is truly funny even though it is mostly true. I was amazed at that Nora Ephron and I had so much in common when our life styles are polar opposites. That's what age does to us. It's the great unifier.

This is a wonderful book to listen to as the author reads it and she is sarcastic, matter-of-fact and frank.

You know, I was just looking at my middle-aged neck the other day ... eek! I think I need to read this book.

I saw this a little while ago at a book sale and knew a co-worker who enjoyed it, but for some reason I set it back down. Maybe the next time I'll keep it in my clutches. :)

I listened to this one too last year. Oh, my! I laughed and laughed at some of the essays. The author does a great job of reading the book and so much of it is true. My lifestyle and hers are not at all alike either, but some things are just the same after a "certain"age. I'm thinking that my book group might enjoy it.

Age does have a way of doing that doesn't it? I thought this book look like a good read. I checked it out for my friend last year and she loved it...of course, she's about 18 years older than myself!!

Love your new look!!!

I'm glad you enjoyed it. I identified with so many things despite my being so much younger. Should we let Susan listen to it next?

I'm so glad you enjoyed this one! I love the sound of it. I don't do audios, but I'll check it out sometime.

I loved this book! It made my Top Ten in 2007. You can read my review here, if you like. I know I enjoy reading reviews AFTER I've read the book, just to see if I agree with the reviewer. :)
