A-Z Wednesday

Reading at the Beach is hosting A-Z Wednesday where bloggers take the time to highlight one book that starts with the letter of the day. This week is the letter U.

I couldn't resist using this one because the title cracks me up. (Sometimes I think I must be a 12 year old boy.) I haven't read it yet. Like so many others, it sits neglected on my to be read shelves. But really, doesn't the title just grab you? Unzipped: What Happens When Friends Talk About Sex--A True Story

Amazon has this to say about it: This book eavesdrops play by play on the sex-and-love lives of the author and her friends as they share gossip, stories, laughter, and tears. By turns hilarious, banal, and rather sad, her chronicle shows women and men working valiantly at mating in a culture without universal consensus or rituals, where bottles, beds, and bodies are shared but rules and expectations are not. Her portraits are vivid, and the book is an entertaining read rather in the style of a nonfiction American Bridget Jones's Diary. Weaver, a journalist, wrote the column "Unzipped" for Salon magazine for several years.


  1. I've sometimes wished I could be a fly on the wall eavesdropping. This book makes it possible. LOL

  2. Sounds fun, if a bit prone to making me feel very old. Or very young, since the title would have made me go in a different direction, cover-wise. XYZ! PDQ!

  3. I think I'd enjoy this one. Thanks!
    If you want to have a look, here's my U book.
    Happy new year!

  4. HI!
    I'll agree that title does grab you. Sounds like a great book! Thanks for sharing and stopping by my place. Have a great evening!

    Just Books

  5. Perhaps we're soul mates ... I have the sense of humor of a 12-year-old boy, too. ;-)

  6. Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!!!

  7. Sounds a bit like Sex and the City.

  8. The title cracks me up too. It actually reminds me of Homer Simpson, watching television. The subject matter is indeed an important one, may check it out. Thanks for stopping by.


I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
