Where Can I Find the Alice Books?

Question;

 

At what stores can I find the Alice books?

 

Phyllis replied:

 

Call your nearest Barnes & Noble, Borders, or independent bookstore and ask which Alice books they have on their shelves.  All of the Alice books, I believe, are available on Amazon.com.

From Phyllis to the Reader, P.H.

Readers:   I was answering email and accidentally deleted–for good, evidently–an email from a reader with the initials P. H.  I think that was it.  This person gave me only his/her name and address but did not say what I was to send.  If I have not answered someone’s email, please email me again and tell me what it is you want me to send.   Phyllis

How Do You Use a Condom?

Question:
I know what condoms are for, but how do you use them? Are they like a pill?
 
 
Phyllis replied:
 
A condom is like a little balloon or the finger of a glove.  A man slips it over his penis before he enters a woman, so that, when he ejaculates, the sperm stay inside the condom.  Condoms are not 100% effective, but most of the time, if used correctly, they do prevent pregnancy and they also help protect against sexually transmitted diseases.

Reading My Sister’s Copy

Question:

I just wanted to let you know that I LOVE the Alice series. I started reading
when
I was in fourth grade; I found a copy of Alice in Charge on my sister’s
bookshelf. I’ve been reading them ever since and I’m now a junior in college! I
just finished reading Intensely Alice. I love these books because, one, Alice is

such a great, realistic character, and, two, I live in Gaithersburg and attend
the
University of Maryland at College Park, so I feel so connected to her. Every
time
my sister and I go to Silver Spring we say, “Hey, this is where Alice lives!”

I’ve been going through a tough time with friends lately at school, reading the
Alice books gives me a really nice escape. They help remind me of how things
used to be when I first started reading them.

Phyllis replied:

 

Both I and my readers love to hear that people still read the Alice books in college and on into their fifties and sixties.   I’m just delighted that they still work for you.   We’d love to know the correct title of the book you found on your sister’s shelf, however, because “Alice in Charge” is the book coming out next spring.  And I’m going to get 50 emails asking where they can find that book now!   Thanks!

Sex Before Marriage

Question:
I was wondering, do you think that it’s okay to have sex before marriage, or do you believe in waiting?
 
 
 
Phyllis replied:
 
I don’t think that one answer is right for everyone.  Some put such a high value on virginity that the only “right” answer for them seems to be waiting until marriage.  Other couples have a different set of values.  There are advantages and disadvantages, but it’s something that both the man and woman need to agree on.
