Sidetracked Home Executives
Young and Jones
Submitter: This one came to us as a donation, but a quick check of our system finds that one library still has it on their shelves and another library has the 2001 “Rev. and updated ed.” I love that it is trademarked.
Holly: I hope the 2001 edition was completely revised and updated. Like, redone, basically. The sample page that Submitter included below is funny. “You always have film in your camera!” “You have a hanky in your purse!” “When it says DON’T BLEACH, you don’t!” (Show me someone who DOES bleach when they SHOULD!) Household tip books will always be useful in a public library, but let’s be honest; the genius that is Pinterest can replace this book any day. Let’s hope that poor Peggy and Pam have gotten organized and have a hot dinner on their husbands’ plates when he gets home from work (see back cover, below). As for me, I’m going to load up my Pinterest board and just pretend I’m inspired.
