by Phil Torvicia – This book is a collection of essays taken from the author’s blog site. It was okay. I’d recommend it for middle-age or older men with relationship baggage and women issues. As a woman “of a certain age”, I couldn’t relate much to his points of view, although his means of expression was often amusing. There was a thin thread of misogyny or cultural bias that distanced me from Torvicia’s POV, possibly because his description of women and his preferences and his experiences made it crystal clear that I’m not his type. And that’s okay, because he really isn’t mine either.
This is the first full book I’ve read in e-book format, using Kindle for Mac (as I don’t have a Kindle per se), and that’s probably why it took me months to read it. Usually, if I’m at a computer, I’m reading blogs or news stuff or FB. My book reading has been of the paper variety, although I have purchased (cheap!) more than a dozen e-books and have won a couple more. I’m looking forward to reading another of them and, eventually, to trying out a portable electronic reading device. No rush, though. I have a couple of hundred paper books still unread chez moi… and lots of time to read them all. (finished 11/10/11)
