Submitter: We’ve been doing a huge non-fiction weeding project at the public library I work at. I’ve been busy working on weeding out the old biographies and ran across this gem. Ironically, I found “Real Life: Real Spice – the Official Story by the Spice Girls” on the same day that I read your post on New Kids on the Block. I was 13 when the Spice Girls were at the height of their popularity and I will admit to still owning copies of their first two CDs. It’s interesting how different Victoria Beckham looks now. Surprisingly, this book was checked out about a year and a half ago, but I still felt like I had to weed it. It brought back some memories of my teenage years though!
Holly: Fun, but definitely a weeder! Put it right next to NKOTB on the used book sale rack, though, and it will fly off the shelf. Mary – have you ever heard of the Spice Girls? (Sorry, couldn’t resist…although there’s a good chance she hasn’t.)
Holly’s Update: So I asked Mary if she knew who the Spice Girls were and if she understood the title of this post. (“Wannabe” was one of the first songs that put the Spice Girls on the charts.). Her response, and I quote, “I wouldn’t have. But I do know who the spice girls are… Scary Spice is married to the soccer guy.”
