A Visit to the Children's Section

Remember when I ribbed the author of "Daddy Kisses" for her limited range as a writer?

Well, she's making no attempt to hide that she's essentially writing the same book over and over. Witness this box set of her work that I came across at Bookshop Santa Cruz over the weekend. "Daddy Kisses," "Daddy Cuddles," "Mommy Hugs" and "Mommy Loves" all in one package.

I thought, "What a shameless attempt to squeeze as much money as possible out of an idea by exploiting the children's-book market."

No wait, that's what I thought when I saw this book sitting on a nearby shelf: "Kabbalah for Teens."

I was disappointed to see it wasn't written by Madonna.
