Read, dammit.

Books are fun. Read 'em whenever you can.

How to Spot a Bastard by his Star Sign - Adele Lang & Susi Rajah

How to Spot a Bastard By His Star Sign

Adele Lang & Susi Rajah

Capsule: Okay, I'll give them this much: all men are bastards. I'm still not convinced our individual styles of bastardness are discernable by plotting our birthdates, however.

Trade Paperback: 144 pages

St Martin's Press

I was loaned this horoscope book by Ray at work -- he just happens to be, like me, a pedantic Aquarian know-it-all grammar geek.

Like most novelty titles, it was chock full of throwaway humour, predictable, unfunny or both. The idea is clever, however, and I'm sure this small publishing house has sold plenty of copies as stocking stuffers, conversation pieces and tongue-in-cheek citations for gender studies majors.
