Scrounging the Islands with the Legendary Don the Beachcomber: Host to Diplomat, Beachcomber, Prince and Pirate

So far it's interesting. Full of typos and some not-so-great grammar, but it's self-published, so they probably didn't have a copy editor at their disposal.

I was a book behind on Krista Davis' "Domestic Diva Mystery" books. She has a new one coming out next month and I haven't read the latest yet. I picked up a copy from the library on Thursday, cracked it open late last night to read a few chapters, and after heading down the basement to day to flip laundry from the washer to the dryer and do ten minutes on the recumbent bike...I'm halfway through the book. Yeah, those 10 minutes ended up being 30. If I keep getting large-print books (easier to read when you're on an exercise machine) and reading on the bike, I just might get a little fit! That would be a good thing...

Due to their cliental, Winthrop has all large print books for reading. I have taken a couple home and you are right. They are easier to read. So now I know where to get my books for reading.

Who knows. You might not only get in shape, but also lose a few u nwanted pounds.

Gonna take a lot of pedaling to lose as many pounds as I should, Addie.


Well, the good news is I won't be staying up late to read more of that book. The bad news is I stayed up until I was done Saturday-into-Sunday. One should not close the book, look up, and see daybreak light in the sky. Ah, what the heck. We're retired!

Reading "Flat Broke with Two Goats"..A memoir by Jennifer McGaha..

Half way through it and its seemingly an honest portrayal of a period of her life... My immediate take so far is that I'm glad I'm not her..

The Kafir Project by Lee Burvine. It's sort of a sci-fi thriller. And not sci-fi like in Star Wars, but through introducing technology that doesn't exist into today's world. It's really good.

I stopped by my favorite bookstore, AKA the town library, and picked up the latest offering in Cleo Coyle's "Coffeehouse Mystery" series. A Shot in the Dark is the 17th book that the wife/husband team of Alice Alfonsi and Marc Cerasini have written. Seventeen! Unless things have changed, this latest book will be just as fresh and interesting as all of the books before it.

See you guys later! I've got a mystery book and a glass of wine!
