Drowning in $20,000 of credit card debt, shopaholic Karyn Bosnak asked strangers for money online -- and it worked!

What would you do if you owed $20,000? Would you: A) not tell your parents? B) start your own website that asked for money without apology? or C) stop coloring your hair, getting pedicures, and buying Gucci? If you were Karyn Bosnak, you'd do all three.

Karyn started a funny yet honest website, www.savekaryn.com, on which she asked for donations to help her get out of debt. Karyn received e-mails from people all over the world, either confessing their own debt-ridden lives, or criticizing hers. But after four months of Internet panhandling and selling her prized possessions on eBay, her debt was gone!

In Save Karyn: One Shopaholic's Journey to Debt and Back, Karyn details the bumpy road her financial -- and personal -- life has traveled to get her where she is today: happy, grateful, and completely debt-free. In this charming cautionary tale, Karyn chronicles her glamorous rise, her embarrassing fall, and how the kindness of strangers in cyberia really can make a difference.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm not alone! A really fun read, from someone else who has taken credit cards too far. It is fun reading about Karyn racking up her debt, and inspiring following her paying it down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious, but true. Become the CEO of your Life! This book was recommended to me from an employee of a bookstore, because I loved the sophie kinsella shopaholic books soo.. much! This is such a great story, that gets you thinking, or at least it did me about where I blow all my money! Thank God I am not $25,000 in credit card debt like Karyn! This is a great book that I can see all my girlfriends reading!
