Private Jets and Beach Reads

Bergdorf BlondesWe're on a reading kick these days--something about the ability to finish a book in one or two sittings is totally irresistible. Another book we've knocked out recently is Plum Sykes' Bergdorf Blondes (2004). (It was published a few years back so we were able to score it off the bargain table.) We totally recommend it as a witty, fashionable way to lose an afternoon. Her lead character, AKA Moi, has a complete obsession with PJs (private jets). And in Candace Bushnell's 4 Blondes (A book we read when it came out in 2002 and didn't love), lead character Janey Wilcox trades sexual favors for a helicopter ride to the Hamptons.

Surely Plum and Candace deserved shout outs in today's NYTime's story, "Hey, Big Spender, Flying My Way?"
