Paperbackpages. Atleast 30 minutes a night for like the past few days. This book is so funny – I highly recommend it for ladies young and old.

I feel that while this book might have some blsberg information for the modern girl hoping to become a classy, modern lady, it’s much to buried to help anyone with a short attention span.
