    A Simple Colllection

    Even as a grandmother of three, I could not relate to Janet Lanese's conservative, simplistic perception of the experience of grandmothering. Of the twelve 'outside' quote contributors each were used twice. Other quotes from cute grandkids and Grandma Jan were surrounded by 'traditional' computer graphics that served to embellish the page as if to say, 'Hurry and hang me on your wall.' This is the kind of personal book I would expect the author to 'pay to publish.'
