Books I Read:
Revenge Of The Gypsy Queen by Kris Neri - Ehh! Nothing to get excited about.
The Proper Care And Feeding Of Husbands by Dr. Laura Schlessinger - Highly recommend this to anyone who is married and especially if you have been married over ten years. I wrote a little bit about it here.
Savor The Moment: Book Three in the Bride Quartet by Nora Roberts - Fun read. Now that three of the four partners at Vows are in serious romantic relationships, I can hardly wait to see how things turn our for Parker...Miss-Has-It-All-Together. Will it really be with Mal, the mechanic? I will have to wait until November to find out. (If nothing else, the cover art of a bride's cake will make you want to pick up this book! Looks delicious!)
Corpse On The Cob: An Odelia Grey Mystery by Sue Ann Jaffarian - I read it in one day. Of course there is much else I have been able to do since having my gallbladder removed on Friday...but still. It was a pretty good read for a mystery without the gory stuff that really disturbs me. My mother would probably find this book to be boring...but I can't take the graphic stuff. Plus I loved the plus-sized heroine, a lot!
I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts On Being a Woman by Nora Ephron - I was in love with this book from the opening chapter on purses...I have the same hate/need relationship with them myself. My purse is not organized, neither do I change it out to match my outfit. It is a tool that I am forced to use because I am a woman and I need 'stuff' while I am away from home. My girls have a purse for every outfit and then some. They buy them for me...really nice ones...and I try to co-ordinate, but I get so tired of moving things around and then I don't have what I need because I left it in the other purse until I finally just carry the same one around until they get me a new one for my birthday or Christmas!
Books I Am Reading:
66 Love Letters: A Conversation With God That Invites You Into His Story by Dr. Larry Crabb - I am listening to the audiobook on my iPhone...or at least I was listening to it on my iPhone until someone in my family 'borrowed' my cable from my truck which I still haven't found...then I will be listening again.
The Senator's Wife by Sue Miller -I am starting it this evening.
