Overview

My Nest Isn't Empty, It Just Has More Closet Space: The Amazing Adventures of an Ordinary Woman by Lisa Scottoline

The incomparable Lisa Scottoline, along with Daughter Francesca, is back with more wild and wonderful wit and wisdom.

New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline struck a chord with readers, book clubs, and critics with her smash-hit essay collection, Why My Third Husband Will Be a Dog. This time, Lisa teams up with Daughter Francesca to give their mother-daughter perspective on everything from blind dates to empty calories, as well as life with the feistiest octogenarian on the planet, Mother Mary, who won't part with her thirty-year-old bra. Three generations of women, triple the laughs—-and the love.

Inspired by their weekly "Chick Wit" column for The Philadelphia Inquirer, Lisa and Francesca spill all their family secrets—-which will sound a lot like yours. And you'll have to put this book down, just to stop laughing.

LISA ON DIETING: I'm backsliding with carbohydrates, which is the food version of ex-sex.

FRANCESCA ON CUTTING THE CORD: I thought I said, "I am going to see my cousin's new apartment," but in Mom-speak that translates to: "I am going to meet certain death in the New York City subway tunnels that are soon to be my tomb."

LISA ON MOTHER MARY: Most people have a list of Things To Do, but Mother Mary has a list of Things Not To Do. At the top is Don't Go to the Movies. Other entries include Don't Eat Outside With The Bugs and Don't Walk All Over This Cockamamie Mall.

FRANCESCA ON BEING SINGLE: I'm addicted to the wedding announcements. Worse, I find myself subtracting my age from the bride's. I thought I was a modern woman, turns out I'm a Cathy cartoon.

LISA ON AGING GRACEFULLY: Today I noticed my first gray hair. On my chin.

And so much more!

I love this book. It's a great read for women of all ages. I'm 21 and I couldn't stop laughing. This book is filled with literal lol moments. I highly recommend the first book Why My Third Husband Will Be a Dog. I must admit it was my favorite of the two!

My youngest is leaving soon, all I can say is I love this book, I just love it. I swear the author could be my twin, she does all the same things I do, I can't believe it. And I read the parts her daughter wrote to my daughter, the look on her face, like yup she knows her mother like I know my mother. Great book

I recently went to our local library and this was the title that I found. When I started to read it, it was a book that pertained to my life. I started to read and each chapter was exciting and funny !!! Each time I picked it up I wanted to continue until the end. I really enjoyed this book!!!! It was a book I recommended to all my friends. Then the next book I am reading is "My Third Husband Will Be A Dog" by Lisa Scottolinewhich is good also.
