From Booklist:

Dear Ann Landers: What's a reviewer to do? With so many books to read, and so many books for libraries to consider buying, do we really want to spend time looking over a compilation of your old columns? There's not exactly anything here to review (although the book's organization isn't great). On the other hand, once you start reading these letters from infidels, addicts, in-law haters, nuts, nerds, and people who want to know the right way to roll toilet paper, it's awfully hard to stop. Kind of like eating candy. Shall I keep reading your book, or move on to something more substantial, like the new Oxford Book of Religion? All Booked Up (aka Ilene Cooper).

Dear Booked: Kwityerbitchin, it could be worse. You could be reading a compilation of letters written to my sister, Abigail Van Buren. Of course libraries will want this book, it has answers, aphorisms, and those heartwarming lists and poems your mother keeps on the refrigerator. By the way, the toilet-paper issue is still up for grabs. Ilene Cooper
