BLOG TOUR FOR IT'S ALL IN THE SHOES





















I AM THRILLED TO BE DOING THIS BOOK TOUR!!!

INTRODUCING:

HONEY, IT'S ALL IN THE SHOES


AUTHOR:

PHYLLIS NORTON HOFFMAN


and

TLC BOOK TOURS



I have never really had a thing about shoes - "my things" are watches, bags and, of course, books - but being a fan of Sex and the City, I have always wondered what the fascination with shoes (and it seems the less comfortable - the better) was!

I was happy to read Honey, It's All in the Shoes, written by Phyllis Norton Hoffman. In this book the author takes a close look at this very subject and basically parallels life with shoes - which I have to say is something that I never thought of before.

Hoffman alludes to the fact that depending on what is happening in your life (inwardly anyway), people who are shoe lovers will somehow "act out" by buying and/or wearing various types of shoes. This made me think about my own "acting out". I find myself reading specific types of books or looking for specific authors - for a reason - and it occured to me that this could also be closely tied to what is going on internally with me at that time. I know that when I had flood problems in my used bookstore, all I could manage to read were Archie's and I ended up reading about 20 or 30 of those before I could go back to my "normal" reading. So perhaps Hoffman has a point - shoes as life's metaphor.


This book is a delight to read. The author's personality shines through and her own personal stories, experiences and comments about the importance of shoes in her life are wonderful.

This book is quaint and a fun, fun read and I recommended to all "shoe addicts".

I love shoes, but haven't been able to indulge in them lately. I wonder what it says about me that I don't wear heels at all anymore.

I do like shoes but wear a difficult-to-find size so shoe-buying has always filled me with dread! I can rarely get the cute styles I like in my size.

Thanks, Tina, for reading and reviewing Honey, It's ALL in the Shoes!
