    Literacy and Longing in LA PDF º and Longing in literacy download, longing kindle, Literacy and pdf, Longing in epub, and Longing in pdf, Literacy and Longing in LA PDFWhen life gets rough some girls shop some girls drink some get chatty with their girlfriends and some girls do all of the above and also grab a stack of novels and soak in the tub until their toes turn to raisins I’ve been known to turn to a narrative or two when real life gets overwhelming so I thought this title might be a nice way to ease myself in slowly to the world of chick lit But nope Turns out habitually reading books does not make you smarter or insightful or interesting Just means you’re likely to throw a book at the wall in the middle of your mid life temper tantrum This book’s first chapter starts off with a poignant childhood trauma our narrator survives a harrowing car crash with her drunken mother at the wheel The tone is set for a serious introspective narrative concerning the repercussions of this tragedy throughout her life bu

    Literacy and Longing in LA PDF º and Longing in literacy download, longing kindle, Literacy and pdf, Longing in epub, and Longing in pdf, Literacy and Longing in LA PDFBooks about book lovers always seem a bit tricky to me 'book lovers' aren't necessarily 'readers' and vice versa and what do those terms mean anyway? etc And if your 'book lover' heroine doesn't enjoy the same sort of books or have the same attitude to them as the reader then what? I found the title character's frankly snobbish attitude to books annoying though I envied her articulateness It probably says a great deal about me that the part of the book I really liked showed the heroine in a low moment and unable to find a book of her own to suit her mood resorts to the 'trash' fiction left on her shelves by a friend with 'inferior' taste and discovers that shock genre fiction can be good Other than that the plot ran fairly true to chick lit conventions and the heroine eventually ends up with the right bloke

    Literacy and Longing in LA PDF º and Longing in literacy download, longing kindle, Literacy and pdf, Longing in epub, and Longing in pdf, Literacy and Longing in LA PDFSigh I had such high hopes for this book I got it because I was intrigued by the idea of a character who used books an escape from real life I expected some thoughtful explorations of that topic from someone who loved literature What I got was a pedestrian chick lit novel with a lot of lot of literary name dropping A real missed opportunity
