Monday Book Report

I'm still reading this book.  I'm a little more than halfway through it.  I've never read this author but so far it is very well-written and an unusual story that really keeps you interested.  She a very gifted writer!

This book is not one you can read for hours on end as it is so full of valuable information.  I highly recommend this book if you are thinking of selling your "wares" on the internet or to retailers or starting your own business of any kind.  I've read a lot of these types of books but so far this one is the best!  I'm using my highlighter quite a bit!

I went to the library as my "books to read" list was getting fairly long and I didn't want to buy them if I didn't have to but as usual I was disappointed.  From more than a page long list they had one!  So, I got it but have barely started reading it.  It was recommended by someone but I can't remember who or where.  I think it was the author more than the book itself as she has written several.

 I think it won the Pulitzer Prize for literature once upon a time so we'll see if I agree.  LOL!  Sometimes I find that greatly acclaimed literature can be rather "dark" and that is not what I care to read.  I'll let you know!
I think I mentioned that I also have 1 magazine I read each evening so that I stay on top of them.  I finished my O magazine for June and when I'm done I take a magic marker and write "read" on the cover so I know.  I also highlight while I'm reading and then when I finish the magazine I go back through it and check the websites, recipes and add books to my list....whatever I highlighted that I want to remember or save.  Then I can put it in the "free" bin at the library and share it with others.
That's it for this week.  I haven't blogged or even visited all week between storms, getting new insurance and trying to stay on top of outside and inside it's been pretty busy!  I'll try and catch  up with you all this week!  Hope you all stayed safe and dry during the hectic weather across the nation.  


  1. I read Gilead earlier this year. I thought it was lovely, but it's a slow, quiet sort of read. I hope you enjoy!

  2. Enjoy your books. I'm reading Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and Forever in Blue by Ann Brashares.

  3. Enjoy! I have very little reading time right now.

  4. I'm reading "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson. I really enjoy biographies and this one is interesting. It is giving a great insight into the man who founded Apple. I'm also reading a book about Mr. Rogers. Have a good week and stay safe.


  5. Blogs I just read blogs! You have been busy! Love that dish rag..way cool colors! Hope the storms stay away from you:)

  6. Enjoy all your books, my library is pretty good in that when it doesn't have the books they will see about ordering them in or getting them from another library in the area. Don't worry about the catching up, your already so busy and as you can see I'm only getting to it now.

  7. I should check out handmade marketplace for my grandmothers jewelry she makes. Thanks for sharing!
