The BlackBerry Diaries Review

Book Review for The BlackBerry Diaries
Adventures in Modern Motherhood
by Mandie Stevens

Toddlers and technology – Not So Different!

Owning a Blackberry® smartphone is a little like adding another child to your family. The device is constantly buzzing, poking, and distracting its owner from whatever it is she’s trying to accomplish. It bears an uncanny resemblance to the uncooperative two-year-old hanging off mom’s leg at the Motor Vehicle Office. And is that holster really any different from a Baby Bjorn? Still not convinced? Consider:

Kathy Buckworth is an award winning writer, television personality and public speaker, with numerous publishing credits in both national and local magazines and newspapers. She is the only two-time winner of the Excellence in Humour Writing Award, (2006 and 2008) presented by the Professional Writers Association of Canada. Her monthly column, "Funny Mummy" appears on websites across Canada and the U.S., as well as in print. She is the parenting expert on Slice Television’s Birth Days, and appears regularly on CBC, CTV, Global and CityTV. Also, she is a frequent guest on television talk show programs, talking about the Myth and Reality of the SuperMom. Her blog is followed by fellow BlackBerry Moms, and many Moms share her humour and life through her Twitter updates. She is recently took an Improv Course at Second City in Toronto just for "fun.”

As a former social networking I could certainly relate to the obsession with the BlackBerry. My sense of humor greatly differs from Kathy's and I thought some parts were a little inappropriate. If you are easily offended this may not be the book for you. I did findmost of the book very funny and there were parts that were hilarious! She had me rolling on the floor laughing. If you are looking for a fun light read, I recommend grabbing a glass of Merlot and curling up with this book.
