    They love nothing better than sipping free-trade gourmet coffee, leafing through the Sunday New York Times, and listening to David Sedaris on NPR (ideally all at the same time). Apple products, indie music, food co-ops, and vintage T-shirts make them weak in the knees. They believe they're unique, yet somehow they're all exactly the same.

    Miguel says: "Bland simply bland!!!!"
    Based on the blog of the same name that experienced a meteoric rise to notoriety, Bevine keeps the narration as droll as the subject matter.

    uriel Miron says: "Great book - Awful reading!"
