Book Review: Paige by Paige: A Year of Trading Spaces by Paige Davis

25 05 2008

I was a little turned off by this book to begin with. It’s one of those books who uses all kinds of cutesy graphics…every page looks like it’s a notebook page, and it has random doodles and handwritten notes scattered through out the page. The actual book itself is typed, and not in the horribly hard to read “handwriting” fonts. So, when standing in the book aisle at the store I was debating purchasing this book. It’s not my normal type of book, but I really enjoy the Trading Spaces show, even if I’ve never been a huge Paige Davis fan. Well, I should mention, the store I was standing in was The Dollar Tree, so, that’s right it only cost me a buck. So, I figured I’d take a chance and try it. Now, if you’re not lucky enough to find this at the Dollar Tree, you’ll have to pay the cover price of $19.95 (US Dollars).


Is it worth 20 bucks? I’m not sure. Was it worth the dollar? Absolutely. It was a super quick read, I read it in a day. It’s not a really serious book, and she writes little short entries everyday. If you enjoy reading blogs or journals, you’ll enjoy the book. Paige Davis is quite humorous in the book, although, not overly annoying (like when she appeared on the show). It was refreshing to have an inside view of her personal life. Did you know she was a professional dancer? And her husband, is a professional actor? Paige Davis let us into her life without the annoying TV star personality, that has a tendency to come through when TV stars write books. Not in this case. If you’re looking for a serious read, skip the book, if you need something light and fun, kind of a beach type book, this is a good book. Just for the pure fact that it keeped me hooked and made me want to keep reading. I have to say I give this book .
