Teaser Tuesday: Date Like a Woman by Kai Nicole



Women must recognize that sexism and misogyny affect us too, mentally, where it is most damaging. If you think your only value is sex, you will only offer sex as your dating asset.

-- Date Like a Woman by Kai Nicole.

I don't date anymore, but I wanted to read this because I have several friends who are still single and I listen to them complain about dating all the time. I thought I'd read this and have more to say than "have you tried Match again?"



Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by The Purple Booker, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

Mailbox Monday

Two different sorts of books came into my house last week. What books came into your house?



Burglars & Blintzes by Morgan C. Talbot. This is the second book in Talbot's Moorehaven Mysteries series featuring Pippa Winterbourne, owner of a bed-and-breakfast/writers' retreat on the Oregon coast.



The Girl Inside Me: Poems by Javelin Hardy. Hardy draws on her training and experience as a therapist to tell her own story of recovery from abuse in this beautiful book of poetry.







Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday, a weekly "show & tell" blog event where participants share the books they acquired the week before. Visit the Mailbox Monday website to find links to all the participants' posts and read more about Books that Caught our Eye.

Mailbox Monday is graciously hosted by Leslie of Under My Apple Tree, Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit, and Martha of Reviews by Martha's Bookshelf.

Book Beginning: The Diary of a Provincial Lady by E. M. Delafield

BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS

THANKS FOR JOINING ME ON FRIDAYS FOR BOOK BEGINNING FUN!

MY BOOK BEGINNING



November 7th -- Plant the indoor bulbs. Just as I am in the middle of them, Lady Boxe calls. I say, untruthfully, how nice to see her, and beg her to sit down while I just finish the bulbs.

The Diary of a Provincial Lady by E. M. Delafield. This book is cracking me up. It's like a cross between the Mapp & Lucia books by E. F. Benson and Bridget Jones's Diary. So droll.




Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

FACEBOOK: Rose City Reader has a Facebook page where I post about new and favorite books, book events, and other bookish tidbits, as well as link to blog posts. I'd love a "Like" on the page! You can go to the page here to Like it. I am happy to Like you back if you have a blog or professional Facebook page, so please leave a comment with a link and I will find you.

TWITTER, ETC: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, Google+, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I try to follow all Book  Beginnings participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up.

TIE IN: The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is a natural tie in with this event and there is a lot of cross over, so many people combine the two. The idea is to post a teaser from page 56 of the book you are reading and share a link to your post. Find details and the Linky for your Friday 56 post on Freda’s Voice.

MY BOOK BEGINNING



To be honest, Twitter. Twitter made me want to write this book.

-- from the Introduction, "Why I Decided to Write This Book," in Date Like a Woman by Kai Nicole.

I don't date anymore, but I have several friends to pass this one on to, including a sister. I like it -- the tone is a bit like The Rules, a book I admit I read and somewhat heeded back before I got hitched.
