Now Reading: Valley of the Dolls.


I spent my Sunday afternoon playing with my cat and our pug, sipping on a latte, and reading Valley of the Dolls.

It's actually an old novel published way back in 1966 by Jacqueline Susann.   There are three main characters in the book: Anne Welles, Jennifer North, and Neely O'Hara.

Anne is from Massachusetts and moved to New York to find work in a talent agency, Jennifer is a vaudeville star who lives in the building where Anne is staying, and Jennifer is a showgirl who doesn't have much talent.  The three become fast friends and well, that's where the story unfolds.




I'm not yet done with the book so I can't give you a full review.  But so far, the plot is interesting and the book is a page turner.  Just thought I'd write about books that I'm currently reading so you can add it up to your list and we can exchange thoughts.

Oh, and if any of you want to join a book club, I'm part of one (read my blog post about The Secret Book Club).  Just send me an email at joeiandme[@]yahoo.com and I'll let you know how you can join.  Basically, it's just a group of people who share the same love for books!  We suggest to each other what we should read next, and then meet up to discuss.  But if you're not from the area, it's ok!  We have members from the US too and they participate through our Facebook group.  So to the reader from Davao who emailed me about a book club, you can join our group.  Just send me another email with your Facebook details :)

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
