Hi- Don't usually post here, but I just finished reading the most amazing book- Dirty Secret by Jessie Sholl.

It's not what you think - it's actually a book written about being the child of a hoarder. OMG- I highly recommend this book for any of you who has a parent who hoards, or who has a friend whose parent hoards.
The descriptions of how it feels to be a child from a hoarding household were pretty much spot on (at least in my case). My sister gave me the book- she and I both found the parallels between the author's mom and our mother to be uncanny.

Carry on... and happy reading, whatever you are reading right now...
