Touch Me: The Poems of Suzanne Somers
Somers
1980

There’s no denying that Suzanne Somers has been prolific. She’s written diet books, exercise books, aging books, a biography…and even a poetry book. It’s awfully sweet and cute and charming; only a little bit nauseating.

If you have scads of extra space in your library, by all means keep it and embrace it and read aloud from it at a poetry reading program. For everyone else, this is an example of a poetry book that could be weeded without significantly impacting the depth and scope of your poetry collection.

OJ Simpson

I wonder what’s up with the “Juice” since 1977?

The Picture Life of O.J.Simpson
Jameson
1977

I bet there are few pictures missing from this picture biography of O.J.’s life.   I wonder if today’s kids remember that he was a football player?  Biography is tough nut for me.  I personally object to anyone getting a biography before age of 50 since they really have a lot more life left!  (Since I am pushing 50 myself, I might change that to 60.)  Case in point, our friend O.J.  Think he has had a few life changes since 1977?
I would love to hear from youth librarians about this one!
