Sample Saturday – Popped collars, a myth and Snapchat


True Prep: It’s a Whole New Old World by Lisa Birnbach and Chip Kidd

Why I have it: Possibly because I have another book by Chip Kidd. And because I don’t hate a popped collar.

Summary: Contemporary look at how the old guard of natural-fiber-loving, dog-worshipping, G&T-soaked preppies adapt to the new order of things (like polar fleece).

I’m thinking: Fun but suspect it’s probably a one-trick pony.

Girl Meets Boy: The Myth of Iphis by Ali Smith

Why I have it: No idea.

Summary: Myth given a refresh for the ‘modern world’.

I’m thinking: Nope, will finish How to be Both first.

Unfriending My Ex: And Other Things I’ll Never Do by Kim Stolz

Why I have it: No idea.

Summary: For an entire generation, an experience not captured on social media might as well not have happened at all – memoir about life online.

I’m thinking: I laughed in the very short, tight-arse ‘chapter’ (paragraph) that was the sample, so maybe.
