Bookmarked



Looking for a great read? Looking for books at affordable prices? If you said yes to both questions, then check out Target.com’s Bookmarked section. There you’ll find their book club pick, bestsellers, new releases, and “breakout” books from up-and-coming authors. Just the other day I picked up 3 books offered at 20% and more off the publisher’s price at my local Target store. Reading is another one of my addictions if you can’t tell.

Target.com’s Bookmarked area also features the ability to start your own book club. Invite your friends, create book lists, and produce your own events calendar. It’s a terrific way to get together with your reading buddies to discuss your latest club picks.

Visit Target.com’s Bookmarked segment to get your reading habit started or head on in to your local Target store to browse their wide selection.

These are just some of the books that are currently on my book list.


Weekend in Paris by Robyn Sisman

The Dante Club by Matthew Pearl

Shopaholic and Sister by Sophie Kinsella

  • Sensational job with you blog! Keep it going! I have a basic website. Take a look if you want. It’s a website covering info from AST Ascentia M to many notebook computer topics.

  • cannot believe someone would have an I love Target website. This company has a horrible human rights record. My husband worked for their distribution center for 5 years, and finally quit after being treated like so much disposable garbage.
    Cases in Point
    1. Every employee is required to see the company nurse before they can leave work for illness. However the company nurse only works Monday-Friday, with no weekends. There is no one that a person working the weekend shift can see to have an excused leave from work. I don't think it would scratch Target's profit margin to employ an additional nurse for the weekend shift.
    2. At the particular plant my husband worked at in Cedar Falls, Iowa there was a water main break. There was not running water for drinking or sanitation for more than 6 hours, yet Target forced its' employees to keep working in 90 degree weather. I was appalled this could even happen in the United States.
    3. They do not allow any kind of personal correspondence within their buildings or parking lot, for fear of organized labor unions(which they desperately need). This means if you want to give your co-worker Sally a sympathy card because her kid died, YOU CAN'T. Unless you want to be fired.
    4. At the retail stores, the starting wage for employees is $6.15. A person could not buy health insurance AND feed himself Top Ramen with this wage. But at least you can buy your plastic Isaac Mizrahi shoes for 10 cents cheaper.
    And these are just minor incidences I can recall from my husband's experience with the "Bullseye".
    So please, find another company to worship. Companies like this are bad for the American work force. And I realize most of you won't give a damn, because you and your husband both work white-collar jobs, but some don't. And you support a business that are treating your fellow Americans like trash.
