Working Woman’s Workout

Show some class, you vile teens!
Why do you have a big nose?

Workouts for women who workWorkouts That Work for Women Who Work
Pearlman
1988

Submitter: A special book for that weird fringe species, “Women who Work”!  Looking inside, I didn’t know that all the time I waste in the shower washing myself could be spent exercising!

Holly: …and all that time you spend working at work could be spent working out.

  1. I do plenty of working out at work… lifting and shelving books has me tired and sweaty by the end of the day! That or it’s just too warm on the second floor of the library.

  2. Note the crayon-line-rule on the lower right corner of the cover.

    Also, she appears to be the author of “Barbara Pearleman”. Is there a word in English for people who are their own creators?

  3. Everything about this is gross. Including her ugly hairstyle, make-up, and clothes. Agree with Lurker, what about the author writing a book using her own mis-spelled name?

  4. I don’t believe the author or the printer is responsible for the crayon-like characters in the bottom right hand corner. It appears the cover was damaged at some point and someone later scribed in the individual lettering. You can tell it was damaged by magnifying the image. There is a break-line and page discolouration evident, and also note the bottom corner of the ‘N’ in Pearlman is cut-off.

    An expedited search on Google for another copy of the cover reveals this to be the case:

  5. @Reader:

    You’re correct by that image. Whoever did it was believable enough though; I had to look twice or so to notice it.

  6. I’m Fergalicious (so delicious)
    My body stay vicious
    I be [out in the stacks] just working on my fitness
    He’s my witness (oooh, wee)
