Sasha's Favorite Books

Shannon asked for some book recommendations, so I created that handy little Amazon widget to the right.

If you haven't read Sophie Kinsella, drop what you are doing and get your hands on the Shopaholic series. Now, they do need to be read in order, so start at the top of the list. These books are an absolute riot- kind of like Bridget Jones, only funnier. And cooler. The Kinsella books without Shopaholic in the title are stand-alone books that are fab too.

At the very end of my list are two books by Pamela Des Barres- a groupie during the Zeppelin and Doors days. In our senior class newspaper, I listed her as my "Person Most Admired" and I think I scared the hell out of my parents. If you have any interest in the days of classic rock, give her first book a read- I guarantee you'll think she's a cool chick.

Happy reading!

Pamela Des Barres. LOL

Yea, I read "I am with the Band" in High school, too! I so wanted to be a groupie - and wanted to make a plaster caster. (was that what she called it?!?) Even though, honestly, at the time I read it, I had not ever laid eyes on anything to "cast."

I think I may have even done a book report on it. SCARY!
