Journal Entry 1 by Agrace from Frisco, Texas USA on Wednesday, May 28, 2003
some things are best met with a good sense of humor!

this is a very cute book that illustrates some of the symptoms of "memopaws" along with helpful solutions.

ie: "Problem obsession with youthful appearance
Solution boycott mass media"
but you really gotta see the pictures to enjoy!

Cute book..though I am not up to that point yet some of the stuff is really funny! Will be sending this off next weekend to the next person on the list!

I just received this book in the mail today. I'll read it quickly and mail it tomorrow if I can get the address for the next person in line.

Journal Entry 8 by AmberLee17 from Stockton, California USA on Sunday, September 28, 2003
Received this delight yesterday and read it in one sitting. Sniggered all the way through it, much to my cats' disgust. A shakey, quakey Meowmy is hard to sleep on, apparently.

Now to get the next address and send this on...

Journal Entry 9 by mojosmom from Chicago, Illinois USA on Wednesday, October 29, 2003
Just arrived today - I think I'm going to enjoy this!

Journal Entry 10 by mojosmom from Chicago, Illinois USA on Monday, November 03, 2003
Oh, this had me laughing! And recognizing myself at times. The drawings are wonderful. It's on its way to the next lucky recipient today.

Journal Entry 11 by kayters from Lawrenceville, Georgia USA on Sunday, November 16, 2003
Cute book, but a bit strange. I love the cats - I'm a huge cat fan. :) But some of the solutions were a bit odd... Off to the next person! :)

Journal Entry 12 by PHC from Richmond, Virginia USA on Saturday, January 17, 2004
Sorry if it seems this book entered the "Bermuda Triangle". It will be moving again when I hear back from the next person in line.

Journal Entry 14 by gategrl from Wallingford, Connecticut USA on Tuesday, February 17, 2004
I just removed my e-mails concerning this book, figuring it had gotten lost in the shuffle, and lo and behold, it appeared on my front step today. This is cute and ready to go to the next person.

Journal Entry 15 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Saturday, February 21, 2004
"Menopaws" arrived safely in today's mail; many thanks! Looks like a quick, fun read, so I hope to be able to pass it along next week.

Journal Entry 16 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Monday, February 23, 2004
Very cute pictures here, and some entertaining notes from previous readers; not sure which I like best, although I did get a kick out of the solution for "Decreased sexual desire" and "Increased sexual desire" [for both, the book suggests "Younger boyfriend" ;-)]. The "mood swing" gauge is a wonderful idea - too bad nobody's invented one yet...

The proposed solution for "Boredom" seems most appropriate for me - even though I don't suffer from boredom; the book suggests "new hobbies," and shows a cheerful lady-cat studying taxidermy. She's working on a mouse, but there are a couple of human heads mounted on the wall behind her! ;-)

This will be on its way to mfa in Portugal tomorrow...

Journal Entry 17 by mfa from Lisboa - City, Lisboa (cidade) Portugal on Tuesday, March 02, 2004
it has harrived safely. the cover picture is absolutely delicious... i'll read it soon, and i'll have to let mom have a look too - she'll love it. now the question is... i'm 29, so why did i join such a ring? i'm glad i did, though :)

Release planned for Wednesday, March 10, 2004 at per Post in send to a fellow bookcrosser, Bookring Controlled Releases.

Journal Entry 33 by Metropolitan from São Paulo, São Paulo Brazil on Wednesday, February 16, 2005
My two daughters and I read this funny book, that's why I took so long to mail it on. I saw myself on many pages and my daughters, who are 23 and 22, found the pictures immensely funny - just wait till they get there!!!

I just got it (thanks Pequeté).
I´ll send it to the next bookcrosser asap.
My girlfriend just loved it.

Journal Entry 37 by Manuel from Lisboa - City, Lisboa (cidade) Portugal on Friday, March 18, 2005
Um livro de "auto-ajuda" bem satírico. Talvez assim, nós homens, possamos compreender um pouco melhor as nossas amigas/companheiras nessa altura das suas vidas. Só não concordei com"obsession with the occult" -> "total immersion". Para mim, Deus é o "caminho excelente" para esses "atalhos" (Levítico 19:31)
A pretty satyrical sel-help book. Maybe, men can have a better understanding of their friends/mates at that time of their lives. I didn't agree with "obsession with the occult" -> "total immersion". In my opinion, God is the "excellent road" for those "pathways" (Leviticus 19:31).
Segue para Cristina-pt.

Seguiu hoje (4/4) para Cristina-pt.

I really loved this little piece of... art? literature? great humour? I don't know how to best describe the book, but I certainly enjoyed having it with me! And knowing that it is such a well-travelled book made the experience even more enriching!

I had a lot of fun going through these pages! The comments from other bookcrossers add a lot to the book! Thank you all for sharing it and for having kept it travelling!

Hopefully, the book will continue its journey in the next couple of days!

My new mantra:

Fat, Fabulous and Fluffy!

Considering the symptoms described here, I think I have been going through the menopaws for the past 20 years. Roll on 60! I'm looking forward to being a "sexagénaire".
This was a fun book, and I have added some comments here and there, as requested.
It is now travelling to welshHelen!

Posted surface mail to catsalive today. Thank you so much for sharing, Elsita.

Journal Entry 71 by wingcatsalivewing from Rooty Hill, New South Wales Australia on Monday, September 25, 2006
These two girls are Penelope & Annabella.

Thanks, WelshHelen. I've been through it once & enjoyed everyone's comments. I'll have to go through it again before sending it on to hunnyb.

I love this little blurb:
Mature, responsible, well-adjusted females know that it's natural to expect some changes as the years go by and calmly accept that "to everything there is a season." But the whimsical, womanly, and anything-but-sedate cats of Menopaws offer another approach - let down your fur, embrace the Change, and live your lives to the fullest.

Journal Entry 72 by wingcatsalivewing from Rooty Hill, New South Wales Australia on Tuesday, October 03, 2006
Thes two girls are Norma Jean & Charlotte.

I have had another enjoyable read through this lovely little book. Thanks for including me Elsita. I posted it to hunnyb this morning.

Journal Entry 82 by Lobodyke from Bardstown, Kentucky USA on Monday, October 01, 2007
This book was a hoot, and in fact, I enjoyed it so much that I have to confess to sharing it with a couple of trusted friends. The illustrations were so clever, and they definitely added to the raucous nature of the subject matter. We have to laugh at this, or we'd cry, right? As soon as I have a chance to make a few comments in the book and to upload my kitties' picture, it will be on its way to MargoReads.

Journal Entry 83 by Lobodyke from Bardstown, Kentucky USA on Wednesday, October 17, 2007
I'm SO sorry I've had this book so long. I read it quickly, but it got buried in a pile of books by the computer that I needed to write release notes for. [I'm a BAD girl.] Anyway, it WILL get mailed by 11/30.

Journal Entry 85 by MargoReads from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma USA on Tuesday, December 04, 2007
I had a package in my mailbox when I finally arrived home this evening. What could it be? What else did I order? *blank look* Then I noticed the BookCrossing sticker, and my heart leapt! A book - yippee! I skimmed through it almost immediately, grinned at the pictures, and laughed out loud at the comments that have been added to it during it's travels. I'll have to go back through now and add a few of my own, before sending it on its way.

Lobodyke, I love your journal entry picture! LMAO


01/16/2008 UPDATE: Now *I* am responsible for this book being stalled! Ice storms and no power for a week, holidays, and a job change - shrug - sorry, folks! I have it ready to mail off this week to MieLH. Thanks!

Journal Entry 86 by MieLH from Odense, Fyns Amt Denmark on Monday, January 28, 2008
The silent meow has finally reached Denmark :) It's so much fun to recieve a book that has been on as long a journey as this one has. Thanx for passing it to me. I've already "read" a few pictures, and will save the rest for tonight :) Will PM the next in line ASAP.

update february 18, 2008: no word from Mandello, so I'm PM'ing the next in line - UK-reader - today.

update february 29, 2008: no word from UK-reader either! I've put up ISO's for both of them in the Bookrings, Bookrays, and Bookboxes forum.

update march 8, 2008: pm'ed Erishkigal today, as she is next on the bookring-list.

Journal Entry 87 by MieLH from Odense, Fyns Amt Denmark on Tuesday, April 08, 2008
As you can see in the entry above I have tried getting in touch with the last three people on the list. No luck so far. Before writing this entry I've sent out yet another PM to each of the three... hoping to get some sign of life :)

If I don't get any I'll send the book back to ... well, who? Usually I'd gladly be the one who arranged and continued the ring, but I am terribly busy with my new job teaching and have to pass for the time being. Elsita, are you the one to continue this, maybe?

I hope this book travels further. The journey has already been amazing :)

Journal Entry 88 by MieLH from Odense, Fyns Amt Denmark on Tuesday, July 01, 2008

What fun I've had with this book already - and it only arrived today!

It has had such an incredible journey too which still isn't finished. I will make sure to package it carefully before it continues on its way.

I've added to the comments scattered throughout the book, most of which I found very amusing. In fact they are so amusing that my stomach still aches from laughing. :o) Will be PMing next in line and sending it off very soon.

Journal Entry 93 by loriped from Keizer, Oregon USA on Friday, August 01, 2008
Received in the mail yesterday, but did not have time to journal until today. I have already started reading this and can't wait to show a couple of friends. Thanks so much. I will only keep it a week and will send out by next Friday.

Journal Entry 94 by loriped from Keizer, Oregon USA on Wednesday, August 13, 2008
What a treasure!! This book made me laugh and cry at the same time as I recognized myself in many of the illustrations. For someone who always likes to be organized and in control of myself, this is turning into a test of my sanity. Who will prevail me or my hormones!!!! When I get really wound up the only thing that gets me through is a massage followed by a glass of wine. My husband bless his heart is getting really good at rubbing my feet, but once (and when really desperate twice)a month I go get an hour long massage. Ahhh!!!! It really mellows me out and helps me cope with all those bitchy feelings itching to get out.

Will be mailing off to the next person in line tomorrow.

Journal Entry 95 by Idrooloverbooks from Merritt, British Columbia Canada on Saturday, August 30, 2008
Received this about a week ago, and have been too busy to sit at the computer until today....I will read it and get it in the mail to the next person. First impression - 'AHHHHH, WHY IS EVERYONE WRITING INSIDE THIS BOOK??" (I hope to figure why people have written all over the insides of this book, funny or not) Perhaps a separate jounal included with the book would have been better for making comments etc, IMHO. I'll get back to you within the week......

I will get this in the mail to the next person on the bookring list, on Tuesday September 1, providing they email me promptly with their mailing address. I think this book very cute, but am still not liking the fact that people starting writing inside of it....but I love cats and I'm at the menopausal age.....so I enjoyed looking at the pictures of each symptom....mmm, so much to look forward to ???
Missed mailing this out - too much going on in September and October....but now that I have cleaned up my desk....I will be now sending it on to the next BC in the bookray - Erishkigal.

Journal Entry 98 by wingerishkigalwing from Salt Lake City, Utah USA on Wednesday, December 31, 2008
arived here Xmas eve. sorry i didn't journal sooner.....it has been mucho hectic here...

I enjoyed part of it immediately, then left it on the coffee table, where I could pick it up and chuckle at a few pages here and there, and so could others. One of the others was my nephew, viting from NC, a third-year med student. this year he's doing rotations in different areas of medicine, and next year starts residency in his chosen area. he's been trying to decide between OB-GYN and Family Practice, and laughing said this book (including notes by readers) could tip him into FP :)

so sorry I had this fun book forever~~I looked at the wrong list, and was last on it....then the book disappeared under my chaos for awhile ....finally realized my mistake, and it still took awhile to get in the mail. but it's now on the way to dabercro.

Sure enjoyed the comments added as well as those published :)

Sorry I didn't journal it when it arrived! I've already read it and really enjoyed all the comments. I didn't realize that was going to be part of it, so that made it pretty fun.

I like the better communication with the mom-o-meter on the front door. Useful for kids and husbands! Also liked their idea of mainstream religion...This would make sense to the target age group :-)

Thanks for sharing this cute book! I'm PMing the next person for their address right now.

This is an excellent book. Very entertaining! And now it is going home.

Journal Entry 111 by Agrace from Frisco, Texas USA on Wednesday, September 23, 2009
After six years of traveling the world this little book that I rescued from a resale store (book equivalent of an animal shelter) has come back home!
Following its travels from journal entries has been fun, but I called it home because I really wanted to see the comments y'all made during the journey. As my daughter would say, you gave me many LOLs! But what to do now? I am tempted to retire it to the permanent collection as a trophy. But I can't let one of the most well traveled books on BC ( # 11 as of today) sit idle, so, if there is still interest, another ring shall be offered. (The book is really in much better shape than I expected it to be in after all this time and all the additional comments)

Oh, Agrace, this is just so cute!
I love the idea of reading and leaving comments; this book is going to be soon on its way to the next reader!
Thanks for sharing, I love it, love it, love it!
Eva :)

Journal Entry 114 by wingBookworm-ladywing at Madrid, Madrid Spain on Thursday, May 27, 2010
Now this must be one of the loveliest and funniest books ever to come my way... and its value has been largely enhanced by fellow BCers remarks about their own experience.
I must say I have made some attempts myself; I apologize to those who come next.
A must for all women who are there, will be there, or have been there.
(Ah, looking forward to the weight loss...)
This well-traveled book will continue on its way really soon.
Thanks for sharing it, Agrace, it was worth waiting for!

What a lovely book! I enjoyed it very much. Too short, though.
I'll be passing it on to laurel69 as soon as I get her address.

Edit: maybe her ID is laure69 (without an "l"). I've PM'd her.

BTW: there's no trace of the book on my bookshelf. Probably a result of the bugs in the new site. Quite irritating, though.

New edit: now I can see it on my shelf again!

Loving the look of this! I'm taking it away on holiday so I can share it with my BookCrossing Aunt before posting off on it's journey.

Journal Entry 124 by Kayellbee at Chorley, Lancashire United Kingdom on Monday, August 16, 2010
Took this on my camping holiday in Pembrokeshire where it provided great amusement for many friends, all nodding sagely - how true, how true! Posting today to Jonniboi. Now what does he want with a book like this? Better understanding of the female of the species? Inside information?!

Journal Entry 125 by Jonniboi at Birmingham, West Midlands United Kingdom on Tuesday, August 31, 2010
Just opened up the parcel to find this, I don't even remember signing up to this, so I haven't even got a clue why I wanted the book, maybe I just wanted to be part of a really long bookring? TYo be honest I really don't know, will PM next person in line, and I have a few books to read before this!

Journal Entry 126 by Jonniboi at Birmingham, West Midlands United Kingdom on Friday, September 17, 2010
Still unsure why I signed up for this book, but anyhow, I've read it and the comments and found it extremely funny, I have the address of the next person so shall send, hopefully Wednesday, but I'm not 100% sure that will be the case!
