Meet a Writer? LOL

Yesterday after our sushi lunch, the hubs said, "hey, do you want to go to Barnes and Noble and check out some new books?"  My answer was a big, "hell yeah".  So on our way home we stopped by the B&N near our house.  When we walked in, I saw this big sign that made me chuckle.  Looks like tomorrow there will be a "writer" speaking.
Can't see who the writer is in the above photo?  Here's a closeup.  If you don't know who "Jwoww" is, she is one of the cast members of the MTV show Jersey Shore.  Okay, I have a little confession... I'm a closeted reality show watcher.  LOL.  I don't tell people this normally, because I'm too embarrassed to let people know that I watch this nonsense.  Don't get me wrong, I love watching serious documentaries too, such as recently on my Netflix was Food Inc. and The Future of Food.  But every now and again, I like to watch silly shows because life shouldn't be all serious all the time.
I had to wonder though was who would buy this book?  I mean, really, did we need a book written by someone who became "famous" for taking her clothes off on national tv, drinking too much, getting into brawls with other people and cheating on all her boyfriends?  I love how the book cover says, "shore-tested secrets on landing a mint guy." If you watch the show, you would know how ridiculous that is.  Or even if you didn't watch the show, you'd still know how ridiculous it is.  With that said, I bet this book is somehow on some kind of Best Seller list, which is so silly.  I just wish Barnes and Noble in Staten Island could get us some writers to speak that I would actually want to see.  Come on B&N, how about you get Rosalind Creasy, Mel Bartholomew, Gayla Trail to speak?  (sigh)


  1. Is there such a thing as a person who would say NO to going to a bookstore?

  2. Didn't know who she was. Also, don't usually watch reality shows....unless Top Chef or Next Food Network Star are ones.

    I brake for Book Stores too!

  3. I can't believe it...I know who she is...and that show. I feel sorry for their parents! lol My kids better not ever behave like they do! lol

  4. I'll bet you had fun at the book store even if the author speaking was your first choice. I love hearing author's speak or read from their books. I don't think I would go out of my way however, to read tips about "landing a mint guy" even if I was young enough to identify with the premise.

  5. OOOOOHHHHH my god....seriously? Do you still qualify as a writer speaker if your book is ghost-written? I don't recall seeing any of them writing on the show.


We love to hear from you. Thanks for leaving a comment!
