WWW.WEDNESDAY

To play along, just answer the following three questions ...

• What are you currently reading?  Primetime Princess by Lindy DeKoven. It bills itself as a Devil Wears Prada set in TV, rather than publishing, but I don't think that's accurate. DWP (the book) had a very unlikeable heroine. Yes, her boss was a horror, but the protagonist was hard to root for, as well. (I feel vindicated on this point, since Anne Hathaway's character in the movie was much nicer.) ANYWAY, Alexa in Primetime Princess is up against an entrenched old boy's network. The TV network provides an interesting backdrop and I enjoy reading about Alexa's different friends. I know I've always had a variety of people in my life, different friends I turn to at different times, and I like seeing that aspect of Alexa's life portrayed in this book.

• What did you recently finish reading? Bruce, by Peter Ames Carlin. OK, I admit it: I didn't really finish it. I put down this detailed (500+ page) Springsteen biography because I needed a little chick-lit break. I'll return to Bruce soon.

• What do you think you’ll read next? We'll see how I feel after Bruce.

  1. I'm in a bit of a reading slump, but I just read a review of a book that might snap me out of it!

    I can relate to not finishing Bruce.

  2. Primetime Princess sounds like a book I could get behind! My TBR list is growing already. Happy Wednesday!

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
