Books....

So far this year, I've finished
THIS:


and

THIS:


I just ordered THIS:


So, my goal for this year is to read 12 books, in addition to my school work load.
For those of you who devour books like they're candy...well, hats off to you. While I very much enjoy reading, it's sometimes difficult for me to find time to read for enjoyment when I should be spending that time reading for school!

....so, anyway....there's that!

I do "devour books like candy" but I'm not in school. Hats off to you for an impressive goal in addition to your school workload!

I would love to hear what you thought of Just One of the Guys!! I'm always looking for new books/authors to check out!

Hope everyone in the Lainey Painey household is feeling all better!

Just One of the Guys....
I didn't like the first couple of chapters.
I didn't get into to it until the 3rd or 4th chapter, and even then---I mostly read just because I'd already started it!

But, in the end---it's one of those "pass the time quickly" books. You just read for the enjoyment; certainly not for the brain stimulation related to THINKING.
It was easy to figure out how it would end....

It was nice though that the main female character is lovable just as she is---she's big, she's athletic, she doesn't really try to change herself all that much to meet the expectations of others. It's...refreshing in that sense.

sooo, what did you think about Twilight? Did you see the movie? How can you NOT want to go get the rest of the series and read them too?!?! I was addicted like CRACK! not kidding ;)

If you want to feel good about your life - read "Too Fat to Fish" a biography of Artie Lange. It's an easy read and ends on an "up" note.

What Beth said about not being in school. And you can count those books. I do! =) I'm glad to hear that you're finding at least a little time for some quiet, pleasure reading. You deserve a break from your hectic life every so often!

Melissa:
Okay, so if you've already read that book---then you should bring it to me the next time you come down!

Leslie:
Twilight---I was into it while I was reading. I thought the whole "prom ending" was cheesy, and reminded me that the whole thing was this teen-love-story kind of thing....but, I found myself engrossed while reading the book.
I'm sure I'll read the others in time.

I wish I could be more motivated to read. Instead, I will read a chapter or two then realize I really need to go to sleep. Or do some laundry. I've been on book 3 of the Twilight series for a while now.

Lainey, I'm totally with you about the prom ending! But, it was so true to teenage girls. My students (males as well as female) love, love, love those books.
