Girls’ Poker Night, by Jill Davis

I saw this book at Borders one evening on my walk through San Francisco. Since I’ve been getting into poker recently, the title intrigued me. I read the first 10 pages or so in the store, and I really liked the tone of the writing. A wry edge to some humorous observations. But I wasn’t willing to pay full price for it, so I didn’t pick it up then. I looked for it at the library, which didn’t have it, so I ended up tossing it into my next Amazon order, a fact which I hesitate to admit since the book screams Sex and the City to me (single gal moves to NYC, starts up a poker night where she and her friends discuss the state of their lives and their boyfriends). I did enjoy reading it, though. Entertaining anecdotes, and a strong narrative voice which keeps things light-hearted.
