The list author says: "I used to consider such books as "beneath me" due to an unfortunate English teacher I had in highschool who indoctrinated us with examples of books that were "trash" and books that were worthy. Because of her, I have a lot of missed reading to make up for. These are all books outside the genres I normally enjoy but I ended up liking them despite myself. My best advice? Try something new because you never know what you're missing out on until you do."
"I thought I would have absolutely nothing in common with the author and wouldn't like her at all but I ended up thinking she'd be a fun friend to hang out with (occasionally) and the kind of pal you could call at 2am to lament your love life with."
"I really thought this would compare unfavorably to Mark Bowden's "Black Hawk Down" or that it would just be a "rehash" of that book but I'd DEFINITELY recommend reading them both to get different points of view on this subject."
"Before there was Lora Leigh, Johanna Lindsey and other best selling romance writers, there was Kathleen E Woodiwiss. Despite the age of this book (it was first published in 1974), it's still appealing today. If you like Johanna Lindsey, I'm betting you'll like this book."
"Egads! Not another "diet" book! That's right, not another diet book. More like common sense things that you forgot you knew and all in one book How about that? I loaned my copy to a friend but miss it and so will be getting another."
"Oh how I LOATHE reality television. Truly, it makes me wonder about the future of civilization. However, though I never watched even one minute of this show, the cookbook turned out to be a welcome addition to my kitchen library."
"I absolutely thought I would be disgusted by a book about adultery but I ended up reading it in one sitting. It didn't end up being a "keeper" (a book worthy of a spot on my bookshelves) but I don't regret reading it. Just don't expect me to watch the movie...."
"You'll be appalled, you'll marvel, you'll be amazed.....and quite probably disgusted as well but still an entertaining read that can be put down and picked up days, weeks, months later when time permits and how many books really can you say that about?"
