Book Review and Giveaway: How to Sue a Telemarketer by Stephen I. Ostrow, Esq.


In How to Sue a Telemarketer: A Manual for Restoring Peace on Earth One Phone Call at a Time, Stephen I. Ostrow, Esq. provides details on exactly what you have to do to stop telemarketers from driving you crazy! He starts by explaining the laws that the telemarketers need to follow and the specific information you need to get from them when they call. Then he goes into step-by-step details on how to make your way through the court process, from serving the complaint to the telemarketer, to filling out small claims court documents, to surviving your time in court without too much anxiety.

This may sound a bit dry, but Ostrow, who is also an impersonator of the Seinfeld character Kramer, has infused humor throughout, making it a very easy and fun read. There are silly cartoons at the beginning of each chapter, and plenty of tongue-in-cheek commentary from Ostrow. I learned a great deal about what telemarketers can and cannot do, and will be putting a pen and paper next to my phone to stop them the next time they call! The only disappointment I had was learning that I can't stop the political and survey calls. It seems like we get those all the time now.

  3. I was wondering how this was going to turn out when you first mentioned it. I ask to be put on the "do not call list" but lately we've been getting recordings you can't even talk too.

Banned Books Week: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park

This is the end of Banned Books Week and unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time to write about banned books this year. But I did want to include at least one post about it, so today I wanted to share one of the book series that it seems most people are surprised to find on the list: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park.

According to Wikipedia:
The Junie B. Jones series came in at #71 on the American Library Association's list of the Top 100 Banned or Challenged Books from 2000-2009. Reasons cited are poor social values taught by the books and Junie B. Jones not being considered a good role model due to her mouthiness and bad spelling/grammar. This is an interesting example of a banned book. Many times there are serious, controversial topics featured in books that are challenged. Things like homosexuality, drugs, vulgar language, etc. You can actually understand why people may not want their children to read those books, and why they may challenge their inclusion in school libra…

Book Review: No Story to Tell by KJ Steele

Victoria has been put down since the day she was born. First by her parents who were disappointed that she survived while her twin brother died. Then by her verbally abusive husband and his low-life friends. But soon an intriguing artist named Elliott arrives in town and starts encouraging Victoria to follow her dream of opening her own dance studio. She also begins to receive phone calls from a mysterious someone who gets her to open up about her past and face her true feelings.

In No Story to Tell, KJ Steele has captured the small-town atmosphere and brought these characters to life. From the victimized Victoria, to her drunk and obnoxious husband Bobby and his drunk and obnoxious friends, to all the side characters who you'd expect to encounter in a town like this ~ all are so realistic in both their actions and their voices. She has written a compelling story of an abused woman who thinks she is trapped in this loveless, miserable existence. But then she finds a spark of hope…

Zoe is a typical working mother who takes the Underground through London to her office every day. Like most commuters, she has a routine that she follows every day, leaving home at the same time, sitting in the same train car, taking the same route to work from the station. It's habit. But she starts to realize this may not be a good idea after seeing her own photo in an advertisement in the newspaper. Another woman who appears in the advertisement is murdered and Zoe starts to ge…
