I ONLY enjoyed reading the book because I enjoy scrapbooking. While lighthearted and entertaining, sometimes making me chuckle out loud, there were a few chapters that would have been best edited out in total. Her not always subtle attempts at name-dropping were annoying, not coy because they were too vague for me to know who she was talking about. There are no scrapbooking tips either. Clearly the author's talent is advertising copy-writing.

I received this book as a gift because I'm a scrapbooker. I don't know what I was expecting, exactly, but I WAS expecting more humor. More things that related to my experiences with scrapbooking. Unfortunately, I didn't find the book particularly funny, although I could commiserate with a few of the author's experiences.

Most of these little anecdotes were pretty comical, but she goes a bit overboard with the puns.

Its okay I did get a few giggles about it. Most of the stuff is just a little dated for me to really appreciate. A few years back I might have given it 3 or 3.5.

I quit reading five or six chapters in.
It's not a story. Just a book making fun of scrapbookers. Some of the jokes were clever, but I couldn't handle any more.

not sure who the author was writing this book for. At times it was funny and at other times it seemed to be a slp in the face to scrapbookers.
