As far as we men are concerned, women are.....(fill in your thoughts).

Last night, when the wife came home from work, she bought up the fact that her boss (90% of the workforce are female), was "hilarious" (her words, not mine). When asked why she thought that, I got told that her boss had just finished reading the book & as everyone else in the office had read it, asked the wife if she had...

...reply was "no", so she got given the book with a tantalising teaser: - read pages 114/115, then start from the beginning.

hmmmmnnnnn, while the wife is at work, I spotted that the book is full of bookmarks.... & yes, 114 is.

oooohhaa.......think I'm in trouble!

Anyone here read the book yet?

I bought the whole series out of curiosity and now wish I didn't. Due to the fact that I know minors view these forums, I won't go into details but I think certain aspects are quite degrading to women ad I have a difficult time with that.

Frankly I'd rather spend My income on other stuff.

Had it been a male author, I would probably agree with you. However, a woman wrote it, which leaves that question wide open.

And I for one will definitely not get into any arguments on that with a woman....they know better than us... :)
