The Author Reads – Book Review of ‘Over 50, Even More Defined,’ by Shel Harrington
Feeling old and need a good laugh?
Check out Over 50, Even More Defined, by Shel Harrington.
This book is filled with ROTFLOL belly laughs and giggle-snort moments, written by a humorist for a “chronologically” mature audience.
A giggle-snort might describe what Shel Harrington calls a “quinbloit,” or a word that is not yet in the dictionary.
Not to give spoilers, but two of my favorite quinbloits are:
- BOOKMOCKER | book-mok-er (noun) A book labeled “historical fiction” that begins in the year you graduated from high school.
- GUESTGUST | gest-guhst (verb) To get more cleaning done in the ten minutes before guests arrive than you usually do in a month. (My husband loves having guests since it forces me to clean house.)
Over 50, Even More Defined, is the second book in Harrington’s series of snort-worthy, eye-rolling laughs, defining words for those of us who have over-fifty moments that we can’t quite put the right word to, but those of our age would understand.
“After reading this book you’ll be equipped to communicate with your over-fifty buddies in shorthand. It’ll be like having your own secret code! As you read through these pages, you just may recognize yourself and others who are journeying through this special season of life with you. I hope having the words to accurately describe the adventure makes it more fun!”

This book will make a great gift for the hard-to-buy-presents-for person in the 50 or older crowd and I am certain they will LOVE it.
Harrington’s books are available on Amazon.
