Friday Reads: Just Let Me Lie Down by Kristen van Ogstrop

For a book whose jacket description sounded so promising - I think this one kind of missed the mark on my expectations.  That's not to say it wasn't amusing or insightful, but it was not what I was wanting.

Essentially, the book is directed at working moms.  I thought it would be filled with wisdom on how to find my own balance in this world.  Instead, I was greeted by alphabetical chapters and a glorified glossary of terms relating to working motherhood.   Sure - some of the entries were quite funny, but it just wasn't what I was looking for.

It's a quick read, though - so if you want a witty read to distract you temporarily from working motherhood...nah - this won't even do that.   I just can't recommend it.   Perhaps as a bathroom reader bought on clearance...then it might be better enjoyed bit by bit.
