Brooke's Bestseller and My Guilty Pleasure

To call Brooke Shield's "Down Came the Rain: My Journey Through Postpartum Depression" a book is a bit of a stretch. It's more like a big fat People magazine without the pix. Nevertheless, this "book" is one of the top 10 bestsellers this week (somewhere V. Nabokov is weeping). I have to admit I kinda liked it. It's really not too bad. Some parts are really harrowing, such as her IVF treatments and miscarriage, and I actually laughed out loud at some sections. (I got it out of the library, so I can't take any of the blame for its bestseller status. And just to atone myself for this guilty pleasure, I'm now reading Nabokov's early novel "The Defense.")
