Reading For Fun Book # 2...

October 13, 2010

Immediately after I finished reading my first recommended reading for fun book a couple weeks ago, I picked up another one of Celia Rivenbark books. I seriously cannot get enough of this women and her style of writing. I think it is because she is from the South and many things in her books I can relate to from grits and pecan pies to the way Southerners say "y'all".

"Stop Dressing Your Six-Year-Old Like a Skank: And Other Words of Delicate Southern Wisdom" is geared more towards the mommy readers out there but it is still very funny even if you do not have children yet. Once again each chapter is another short story like the first book I wrote about, so it captures your attention and makes you wonder what the heck she will discuss next. Here are some of the topics she covers:

  • Britney Spears and Jason Allen Alexander's 55 hour marriage

  • Celebrity Moms-don't hate them because they're beautiful

  • Why Southerners don't talk like the rest of the country

  • Krispy Kreme doughnuts being the finest things on God's green earth

  • Why little old redneck women are always so pissed off

  • Obituary junkies


  1. Thanks for your comment on my blog! This book looks HILARIOUS! Great recommendation!

  2. Just the title itself is hilarious!

  3. Krispy Kreme donuts ARE the finest thing on God's green earth. I may have to read this just because of that.
