Malled: My Unintentional Career in Retail, by Caitlin Kelly
Terrible whine of a book. Author Kelly is forced to take a part time retail job at a North Face store, despite CONSTANTLY reminding the reader what a fantastic and successful journalist she is, and she is SHOCKED that is is low-paid, unsatisfying work. SHOCKED. Which makes me think that she might not be that good of a journalist, either, if she hadn't noticed at some point that PEOPLE HATE TO WORK RETAIL. There's not really a lot else to say about this, but I finished the book (why???) and grew to dislike her so much I wish she was working in a mall near me so I could go mess with her.
