THINK think BE thin local gal from here wrote this book and has testimonies that say it can be done. Going to read and see what happens. My luck they are all sold at the bookstore but will get in next week. Strange, the gal who wrote it lived in my neighborhood and from knowing her I feel she isn't trying to mislead anyone. Just getting thin enough tobe healthy is my goal.

Read both! Right away! Obviously I'm no good on suggesting one--I love all of her stuff.

I just read What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day by Pearl Cleage. It was very good. I'm half way through Coming Back to Me by Caroline Leavitt which is excellent, too. It's always nice when you pick out all good books at the library. I always expect to have a few duds, but lately I've been lucking out.

I can't seem to find as much time as I would like to read lately, but I am reading S.e.x Begins in the Kitchen by Dr. Kevin Leman. We are watching one of Dr. Leman's video seminars about how men and women are different, in a marriage class at church. He is SO funny, and he really knows what he is talking about. Check him out--He also wrote Making Children Mind Without Losing Yours, The New Birth Order Book, and Sheet Music. I read the one about kids when I was raising my daughter.

Just finished "Night Fall" by Nelson Demille - very interesting and will keep you up at night after you reach the halfway point. Next is "The Last Juror" - Gidgett hasn't given me a lot of time to read :-)

PA, I decided to start with Open House...well, actually that's the one TC brought to me last night after supper. I've read about 1/4 of it & so far I really like it. Her writing style is a little diffrent from what I'm used to but it's a nice change.

I just finished reading ....The Calhouns by Nora Roberts. She's one of my favorites I get so engrossed in her books that I can read them within a few days

Yea, it is different. It's sort of simple and a lot like just having a conversation with someone.

Glad you enjoyed it so much! I haven't read one of her books yet that I haven't liked. They go fast, too, which is nice sometimes.
