I don't think I've done this for awhile so if I repeat myself on some of these please excuse me. I've read quite bit actually...........
Here are the books I've finished........... this one was alright but only 3 ***.
Remember The Drew Carey Show and Mimi, the gal who wore the outlandish outfits and loads of makeup? Well, she wrote this book with her friend and it is good. I've pretty much done this already but for those who haven't it is a "beacon in the night". Everyone deserves to be happy but so many women have been socialized by society and the church to "give until it hurts" and I have seen these miserable creatures with my own eyes! LOL! So, if you're miserable...read this book! These ladies are a hoot!
I have no idea where this book came from and it's not something I would have picked up I don't think unless I got it free at the library sale....sometimes they do that on the last day. anyway, there it was and I was tired but needed something to read and it was a pretty good story. I'm not sure I've read Alice Hoffman before and not sure I'll read her again but it was a fast read. 3 ***
Right now I'm reading the Mother Earth News magazine I got for Christmas. I always love that magazine.
For my fiction book I'm reading the 2nd book of Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs series. LOVE!!! Great writing and always a good mystery and it takes place in England after the first World War which is a time period I love. I'm sure it will be a 5 ***** already.
For my non-fiction book I'm reading this which I picked up years ago but I'm enjoying it as so far I could have written the book myself! LOL! And lest you think it is written by a "man-hater" think again. This woman is a widow and was happily married to a doctor for years. These are "the facts ma'am....just the facts". LOL!
And for my audio listening pleasure...........
I read this years ago as a book but don't remember much of it so it's been like a new book in actuality. I read a lot of Agatha Christie back in my 20's and lent them all to a gal who never returned them. I wish I had them all back as I love her books!
This was one of her classics too and I think it was made into a movie. It will probably get a 5 ***** also when I'm done listening to it.
Many of these books/tapes etc. are also part of my "clearing and cleaning" and I'm actually trying to read books I'm pretty sure I won't keep so I'll have less of them to move.
