No, I Don’t Want to Join a Book Club

No, I Don't Want to Join a Book Club Kindle editionContinuing with my goal of a book a week:

Last week’s book was: The Design of Sites by Duyne, Landay and Hong. Okay, granted it’s required reading for a class, it was still worth the read. Great ideas and insight if you’re developing websites.

This week’s read was Virginia Ironside’s No , I Don’t Want to Join a Book Club

Imagine Bridget Jones as a Golden Girl and you have the gist of it. Can woman who swung a few out of the park in London’s Swingin’ Sixties find happiness in her “golden years”? Our protagonist is not content to follow the lead of her contemporaries and quietly retire to bridge clubs and pining over “neglectful” children.

She’s not a curmudgeon. She’s opinionated, and still has the gall to believe that her opinion matters even if she is sixty. I like people with a spine. They’re such a rarity these days.

Recommended.
