The Diary of a Recovering Shopaholic
''In the Red' provides a humorous look at how she curtailed her spending and offers practical advice on how to get yourself out of debt.' -- Deborah Anderson, Evening Times 'Having resolved to give up all non-essential shopping for a year, Alexis wrote a diary of her daily struggle against temptation and the result, 'In the Red,' is a hilarious account of the frustrations and triumphs of her spendthrift year.' -- My Weekly book group 'A witty take on our consumer culture through the eyes of one former addict, 'In the Red' is compulsive reading for shopaholics everywhere.' -- My Weekly book group 'Her addiction to handbags and fashion accessories, the nonstop journey into a quagmire of debt which is felt by millions in this country was there to be read in this essential and humourous work of literature. The limitless expenditure and the conclusive battle within herself to transform herself is both inspiring and an effective psychological doorway to regain one's own self respect and dignity.' -- Sajid Hussain, Scotland's Chronicle 'Somewhat in similar vein to Sophie Kinsella's shopaholic books, there is great benefit in reading and learning from his work of literature by a unique Scottish writer. Both entertaining and empathic, one cannot go wrong with this book, it is a must for any reader to have, if you fall into debt and need a bit of a 'lift' read 'In the Read,' ye cannae go wrong!!!' -- Sajid Hussain, Scotland's Chronicle 'The book is humerous and playful as well as depply serious....the openness and wit of Hall's account make 'In the Read' compulsive reading for any shopaholic wishing to stop.' -- Stopping Overshopping
