    1. Yes, I m a man and I read chick lit Jayne Buxton won me over with the delightfully surprising and oddly titled, Lessons in Duck Shooting Take Someone Like Me is not a book title which would have otherwise grabbed my attention, but it is nonetheless equally captivating.This is a very everyday suburban family tale with realistic drama played out by realistic characters Two things rescue it from being mundane the author s humour, and her gift of expression Also adding to the pleasure were the twin [...]
