Book Review - Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne

This book was a little too deep for my liking. As a shallow sort of guy I was a little out of my depth. As I read it my heart sank as I plunged into a depression. I do not like to whale, and I am not fishing for compliments, but this was oceans worse than my book, Seven Leagues Under the Sea. Anyway, I hope that in the years to come Miss Verne writes other books, she is a talented write...

Book Review - In Her Shoes by Jennifer Weiner

What man hasn't, at one time or another, tried on a pair of women's shoes? I for one have often sneakily worn stilettos, heels and thigh high boots, and danced around the house while my wife is out shopping. I think this is far more common than most men admit.
