Book Review: Up for Renewal
I was excited to read this book because Cathy Alter is a local DC author. Up for Renewal is a memoir which details the author's determination to change her life for the better. She did this by taking the advice of magazines for one year. Each month she would focus on a different aspect of her life - fashion, cooking, relationships, fitness - and would consult the advice of a dozen magazines. This was an entertaining read and I actually got through the book in two pool visits. (I actually finished this book a couple months ago but I kept forgetting to post the review). I couldn't relate to all of her behaviors (I think partially because she's ten years older than me) but definitely enjoy reading about her scandalousness. I definitely recommend and I haven't lent this out to anyone yet so let me know if you want to do a book swap.
