good read, in case anyone is looking for a beach book..

I just finished the book Good In Bed by Jennifer Weiner and it was one of the best books I've read all summer. I'm including the B&N review here as it does the book better justice than my description could:

From first-time novelist Jennifer Weiner comes a sharp-witted tale of one woman's struggle to come to terms with her larger-than-life self after her ex-boyfriend writes an intimate and embarrassing column about her in a popular national women's magazine. Weiner's highly likable protagonist is an American version of Bridget Jones -- a single woman with a vulnerable heart, a biting sense of humor, and a pair of ever-widening thighs.
When plus-sized Philadelphia Examiner columnist Cannie Shapiro decides to take a break from her boyfriend of three years, she has no idea just how drastically her life is about to change. While she's used to exposing the inner secrets of others' lives in her column, she isn't prepared for what happens when the tables are turned on her. Not only does Bruce extol her sexual prowess in the article, he also discusses her size-related insecurities and how he never thought of himself as a 'chubbie chaser.' Fallout from the piece launches Cannie into an emotional whirlwind of anger, embarrassment, desperation, and depression. It also triggers a year's worth of events that will have an astounding impact on her life, taking readers along on a journey that is poignant, comical, and utterly unforgettable.

From the very first page, Good in Bed (which comes from the title of the ex-boyfriend's first column) bursts with charm, wit, and bittersweet humor. There are plenty of surprises to keep those pages turning, and Cannie's joie de vivre, unflinching honesty, and sidesplitting wit make for a hilarious and heartwarming journey that every woman -- big or small -- will thoroughly enjoy.

I read that book on my HM. There was a bookshelf in our room and that's where I found the book. It took me a day to read and I loved it! I liked the ending a lot because it wasn't a typical ending, IMO. I second this recommendation to read 'Good In Bed.'

Not only is Good in Bed a great novel, but so is her follow up novel 'In her Shoes' and in the book, Cannie and the dog are brought back up! Fantastic read!
