I needed a laugh
It's been too depressing to post, but last night I read the Books section of the Atlantic Monthly, which you wouldn't think would be all THAT funny, but two reviews were really chuckling-out-loud clever: the mordant summary of Our Bodies, Ourselves by Cristina Nehring and Sandra Tsing Loh's hilarious take on her love of Nancy Drew (and a new book about the N.D. phenomenon). There are, of course, other reviews but these two saved the day. Personally, I never could get into Nancy Drew--next to the the Hardy Boys, she seemed a little too frilly for me.
