101 Reasons to ShopThere’s no therapy like retail therapy

This little book appears to be written for those with a shopping habit, and since I don’t, it’s lost on me.  It’s a book of 101  reasons why you shop or should continue to shop.  It’s billed as, “Equal parts inspiration, motivation, and vindication, this book is 100 percent irresistible–just like you.”  Eh, it feels silly and full of so many stereotypes that many women, like me, have fought years to get away from.  I’m not the target audience.

I suppose someone who is a fashionista would love it, I’m decidedly not. The author recommends it for Mother’s Day or wedding season.
