CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC
Becky Bloomwood cant face opening her Visa bill. Her finances are confusing, out of control, and the irony is that she writes a column for a magazine called Successful Saving.
Beckys poor shopping habits and worse finances do have consequences, but they are witty ones and the ending is perfect for anyone suffering credit excess or recession fears.
The novel has a little romance, plus associating shopping with addiction proves insightful. The reader may feel a bit exasperated with Becky, but shes never boring.(Feb., 310 pp., $19.95)
