David Baldacci. His stuff can be a little dense sometimes.

'Three cups of tea' by Greg Mortensen and David Oliver Relin. Fascinating book, and a good heart warmer that some people are doing phenominal things

Do you really want to know? It will surprise you........The Life of Henry VIII by Alison Weir..........I find that guy fascinating.......and also the lives of his wives......I'm just sad that I'm not in the states to see the rest of the series on tv..........I'll catch up once I get in which will be the middle of Nov.......but he's absolutely fascinating to read about.......

I am reading Body-for-LIFE for Women, by Pamela Peeke, M.D., M.P.H., F.A.C.P. It is very interesting! She breaks women's fat-producing years into four categories (puberty to child-bearing years, child-bearing years, peri-menopause/menopause, and post-menopause) and shows how and where women add fat during each phase of their lives, and she tells how to work on losing it at each stage. I am on part three of the book and have learned a lot so far.

I anyone reading the current rage "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle" ? My library has 10 copies and I'm 28th on the wait list. Would like a review on this book from someone who is NOT Oprah, or a book critic.

I am currently re-reading "Inside My Heart" by Robin McGraw (Dr. Phil's wife). It is a really wonderful testimony to marriage and motherhood and just being a woman. But I always have a half dozen cookbooks I am "reading" at one time.

John D. MacDonald's A Deadly Shade of Gold. Perfect beach reading.

Thumbs up Blood and Fire

Blood and Fire by Roy Hattersley is the story of William and Catherine Booth and the Salvation Army in the nineteenth century. Pretty good so far. I'm only a couple chapters into it.
