So, I bought the book that adub7 said she thought we should read. I thought maybe we all could read it and then talk about it. Anyone else in??
I went to Borders and Barnes and Noble in NYC and noone had it. I ordered it on Amazon for 5 bucks! It’s 11-13 bucks in the stores.
Let me know what the hive feels…

Thanks for this post. I may have to check it out. I love all types of books, so this might be a great one to add to my collection.

I have yet to check this book out at work (I work at a book store) but I can tell you why it’s more expensive at Borders and Barnes and Noble! Unlike Amazon, we have some seriously massive overhead. Employees (about 60- mostly part-time, about a dozen full-time), rent/ utilities/ whatever shopping center fees/ supplies and community relation events. Sure, the online price is cheaper, and we can have it shipped to your house from the store, but you’re still paying for that convenience of us physically being there. The cheaper price online may be less money, but eventually everything will be online because it’s “cheaper” and then people will realize how much more convenient it is to have a physical store.
Sorry, I realize that was COMPLETELY unrelated, but I had a customer go OFF on me yesterday about the price difference and it’s really upsetting.
I’ll look at the book when I go to work tomorrow to see if I want to read it!

<h3>10 Quick Tips for the woman who wants to tie the knot….</h3>
Ten Quick Tips for the woman who wants to tie the knot with the guy who wants to talk about it later:
1. Remember – most guys want to get married, they just want to put it off for as long as they can.
2. Make sure you and your boyfriend are on the same page about marriage, children, etc. – Let him know where you stand – and clearly!
3. Stop dropping those daily hints about marriage – plan a really good heart to heart chat instead.
4. When it comes to marriage understand how women and men can be programmed differently (no one ever said, “diamonds are a man’s best friend).
5. Most guys think about the “Bigger Better Deal” – so try not to take it too personally.
6. His hesitancy does not necessarily mean rejection.
7. Try not to compare the pace of your relationship to all the friends who are getting married — how quickly a couple gets engaged does not reflect the quality of the relationship.
8. Be in touch with why you want to get engaged right now at this time in your relationship.
9. Give yourself an ultimatum instead of putting one on him.
10. Know When to Keep Him and Know When It’s Time to Sweep Him!

@crebre – those tips are fabulous. Since I’m older than most of the Hive and have also been married before; most (almost all) of these tips I already have incorporated into my life. Great find!
