* Fun without Dick and Jane by Christie Mellor

Fun without Dick and Jane: A Guide to Your Delightfully Empty Nest is a tongue-in-cheek guide to life without live-in children — but I found it neither funny enough to qualify as full-on humor nor weight enough to be actually helpful. It seems to speak entirely to stay-home moms to exhort them to shed their sweatpants and minivans, stop fretting non-stop about their college students, and get a life free of the daily pressure of children activities and house work. Apart from a brief passage about, of all things, shedding their sweatpants, not a word about fathers.
