Might as well face it, I’m addicted to books. I’m about to go crazy ’til I get my library card, before which I have to have proof of address, before which I have to get mail addressed to myself and/or a VA driver’s lisence which also requires that pesky proof of residency. Heavy Sigh. Yet, I have managed to join a book club and bring from Michigan my required reading:
I highly recommend this book to any and everyone, with the condition that you read it WITH somebody…or a whole lot of somebodies so you can TALK about it afterwards! That is truly the best best part. Of course you can always talk to me about it if you so desire 🙂 My experience with this book was almost incomplete. I had a rough time getting through the first section (the tragedy part) and stalled out, losing motivation to read on. Much like the main character. Then, in the Skatepark bleachers, I saw a lady reading it. I had purposefully chosen NOT to bring it that day, and yet there it was with her. “I’m reading that same book” says I. “What do you think?” says she.
“I’m having a hard time with it.”
“Keep reading. It gets much better. I’m somewhat of a skeptic, so I’m hoping this book explains a lot.”
So a “seeker” encouraged me to finish. It was worth every page of sadness and worry to get through to the later section. The chat I had with a dozen or more Southern Ladies ages 30-70+ was priceless. Persevere!
This one is somewhat (okay, a lot) irreverant, but I love the way Jill Connor Browne writes with such humor and wisdom as well as many yummy recipes! And financial advice too? What more could one want in the off season? This is one that makes me interrupt whatever Hubby is doing (he always puts his finger down to mark the place of whatever he is reading, and listens. What a Spud Stud) and I will proceed to read some hilarious snippet to him. He nods, smiles, and chuckles. Check out all of their offerings (from the library just in case they are too bad-language-y for you) Hope you enjoy!
Then to cleanse the palate from those dirty Sweet Potato Queens, back to the Christian book club:
So…what are you reading this summer?
