Whose Idea Was That?

Last night, Sheba and I worked off our delicious Thai dinner while perusing my favourite used bookstore BMV.  I love to browse the bargain bin out front and buy books from my childhood.  The bin is single handedly responsible for bringing Ramona Quimby and Judy Blume back into my life.  Yesterday I came across some real treasures!

Living Somewhere Between Estrogen and Death
Is this title for real? I might not be the target demographic for this book but...really?

Angels Don't Know Karate
Says who?
And why are these kids gawking in awe instead of protecting their eyes from the shards of broken wood heading their way?

 Embracing Your Big Fat Ass
If I emerged from a shiny white stretch limo in the middle of Manhattan with those legs, that dress and those shoes, I'd be embracing my big fat ass too.  

 When Love Gets Tough: The Nursing Home Decision
 Not to make light of what is a very serious situation but this cover art is hilarity.  The prominent rose in the foreground and dated photo in the background really bring it home don't they?

Naked Brunch
Werewolf chick-lit-romance! This genre is so often over looked.  Thank goodness for the furry foot in the sexy red pumps on Sparkle Hayter's book cover to pull a book lover in!  Love the pen name!

It's so much fun judging a book by it's cover!

HAHAHAHAHA! I looooooved this post! And it's okay: the nursing home book is hilarious. I mean . . . the title, the rose, all of it. And the idea that at some point, someone bought that book. Man oh man.

Embracing your big fat ass! What on earth?!?!

Soooo happy you stopped to snap shots of these treasures and share them with us. They're real gems!
