How do you choose your books? Does the cover art attract your attention? Do you choose only books on a recommendation from your favorite book blogger (ahem!)? Bestsellers list? Do you choose your book on the title? Well, this is one book that I could NOT pass up. Let me first say, I love my neighbors...most of the time. But when I saw the title of Saralee Rosenberg's book, Dear Neighbor, Drop Dead, I laughed out loud. I have lived in my current suburbia for two years now, and my husband has told me endlessly that I need to write a book on the hilarity of it all. Trust me, none of my neighbors will dispute me on this: there is always drama. After reading the Author Interview over at Brenda Janowitz, a talented author in her own right, not only did I know what my next read was going to be, but I had to share it with all of you. So all you neighbor-friends of mine, and my non-neighbor friends of mine, run, don't walk, to the bookstore and read this book with me. Could you be? Would you be? Won't you be...my neighbor?
Read an excerpt from Dear Neighbor, Drop Dead. Prepare to laugh.
