Eight books perfect for reality TV fans

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog, Rebecca Jane Stokes tagged eight books perfect for reality TV fiends, including:

Read about another entry on the list.

Bridget Jones's Diary also appears on Melissa Albert list of six of the worst fictional characters to sit next to on a plane, Allegra Frazier's list of five top diary novels, Gigi Levangie Grazer's list of six favorite books that became movies, Caryn James's top five list of recent novels that channel classics, Sean O'Hagan's list of the ten best fictional hangovers in print, film and song, Christina Koning's list of the best of chick-lit, and a list of eight books for the broken-hearted.
