I haven’t had the pleasure of seeing “Juno” yet but as soon as it’s available on DVD it will be in my hot big hands. I loved the screenwriter, Diablo Cody’s acceptance speach at the Oscars last month and I have read a few of her articles for Entertainment Weekly and really enjoyed her writing. So when I came across her memoir, “Candy Girl ~ A Year in the Life of an Unlikely Stripper” at the PX, I couldn’t help myself and placed it in my shopping basket. The PX doesn’t usually have a very interesting book selection so when I do see something that catches my eye and it means I won’t have to wait on the USPS and Military mail system then I buy the book.
So after finishing “St. Lucy’s Home For Girls Raised By Wolves” yesterday morning, I decided to go in a totally new direction and took “Candy Girl” off my shelf and dug in. So far it’s entertaining and Cody’s voice is familiar and relatable. Nothing too exciting has happened yet but I’m only on page 38. I’ll let you know what I think when I’m done. I feel good about all the reading I’ve gotten in lately. I’ve really tried to read more than just at bed time and it’s great.

I went to the bookstore the other day and picked up this book but didn’t buy it. I also considered Working Stiff, but decided to buy an Einstein bio instead…
AND! I bought the St Lucy’s HOme short story collection so I will start that very soon.
Great! I’m curious to learn what you think of the short stories. I am hoping my sis will put in her two cents about the book since she is the one who gave it to me in the first place with rave reviews.
