I can't believe I haven't posted in the last few days ... The holidays caught up with me! But I'm glad to be back for Book Club Friday! Once again I am linking up with Heather at Blonde...Undercover Blonde.
This week I read Water Cooler Diaries: Women across America Share Their Day at Work
The Synopsis from Goodreads.com - "What’s it really like to own the company...work from home...occupy cubicle-land? On March 27, 2007, over 500 women kept a diary of their workday-including drama and laugh-out-loud moments-for Water Cooler Diaries. Featuring 35 full-day accounts and hundreds of highlights, you’ll go behind the scenes with a hot new fashion designer, a McDonald’s manager, a trauma surgeon, a mechanic, a life coach, a boxing promoter. More well-known contributors include actress Angie Everhart, celebrity chef Sara Moulton, race-car driver Sara Fisher, and "Go Fug Yourself” blogger Heather Cocks, all inviting us to work a day in their shoes."
My thoughts: I wish I had read this book when it first came out in 2008, as it's a little dated, but it was still really interesting to read about so many different occupations and lives. My only complaint is (Of course) all the jobs were either really prestigious or wild, with just a couple of "normal" jobs thrown in. I want to hear more about the masses and not the 1%.
