He's my brother.
Even if we do not agree.

I haven't even finished!
Ms. Catherine of Alexandria has a heady little list of recommended reading that she went through - very impressive indeed - but what else do librarians do? Anyway, as promised I decided to do a list of my own summer reading.
Actually, I'm still reading it, I started it in May. It is the riveting "Bergdorf Blondes". Quite a dense read, hence I am savoring every page. I would read for a while and then I would have to digest what Plum Sykes wrote and put the book down for a while. Here is a review:
"They're ravenous. They're ruthless. They live in a strictly hierarchical, alpha-dog, eat-or-be-eaten world. No, it's not a rerun of Wild America; it's the world of dressed-to-the-nines Park Avenue heiresses, aka Bergdorf Blondes, botoxed to within an inch of their barely-into-the-third-decade lives. Our unnamed London-born heroine is New York's favorite "champagne-bubble-about-town" and just as effervescent and exhilarating as a fine bottle of Dom Perignon. Blissfully self-interested and flush with the cheeriness that comes from being, well, flush, Miss Disposable Income 2004 sashays her way through New York society in search of the perfect P.H. (Potential Husband)-"Have you any idea how awesome your skin looks if you are engaged?"-and the perfect butt-shaping pair of Chloe jeans."
After I finish this I hope to read O.J's new book - "If I'd Dune It" or something.
