I mostly enjoyed this lighthearted look at the life (and credit card charges) of a single girl, but there was one point where I very nearly shut the book and didn't continue. The author made an offhand remark about "... how [she] could have bought literally thousands of dollars of food that year and never once made a purchase at Lane Bryant."; I found this to be in extremely poor taste, and even though it was not directed at me, I was quite hurt. I decided to continue reading the book, but the remainder seemed hollow, and I realized that a lot of the charm of the book is in its sense of "chumminess" between the author and the reader, and after the subtle fat joke, that bond seemed broken.
