Congratulations! Someone once said a child in the home is a thng of joy forever...well, maybe not at 2 in the morning!

A book on your phone would be a good thing to have for when you're stuck somewhere!

Hi Janelle. So what's new is........ I'm a new mommy!!!!! My son was born 7 weeks ago and so the books have suffered. obviously he is still small and I am working on a schedule so until then magazines will have to suffice. HA! I'm trying to start working out again and that also has not been successful. I will hopefully get to enjoy reading again pretty soon. Hope you are doing good. I have thought about using kindle on my phone but something about flipping.pages and those wonderful cute bookmarks is just somewhat nostalgic!!!! ;)

Good for you, Felisha! I know it's hard to read when you're a busy mom. I started The Hungar Games but am struggling with it. It may not be my best choice. What is Heft? I'

ve never heard of it.

Michelle, how are you doing with your books? What's new?

Comment by Felisha Flores on March 21, 2012 at 10:59am

Great News! I'll check it out Janelle! This year I've already read 16 books, I counted them last night as a matter of fact. I just finished the Hunger Games hoopla since the movie is coming out this week. I'm in a liitle young adult rut right now, its nice to leave adult fiction and enter a fantasy and young love realm. However, I will be starting 'Heft' by Liz Moore. I'll keep you posted on how it is. I hope you have great sales from your novel!

Hi, Michelle! I'm glad we picked up some more readers too!

I'm going to check out your Sandra Brown books--I need something that is entertaining. I have read some of my favorite contemporary authors lately and wasn't happy (LaCuna byBarbara Kingsolver bored me to death and I normally love her.)

Felisha, I've never read Pride and Prejudice! OMG, and I'm a writer! I'm still dragging myself through Anna Karenina! I think I got spoiled on Ernest Hemingway--he tells a story and gets over it. Geez! Maybe I have ADHD!

Felisha I didn't see that you'd joined our group. Welcome! I stopped getting messages so I'm clicking that envelope the other direction--I'm such a computer dumbie! What are you reading now? I've been doing a lot of research on the Old West, so the titles sound weird. One of them is Carbine and Lance, the History of Old Fort Sill.I love it but I doubt it'll make the best-seller list!

Comment by Felisha Flores on October 5, 2011 at 7:04pm

Thought this would be a fun one to join, I'm always up for good book recomendations. Currently reading Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese.  I mostly enjoy historial fiction but I noticed some of you enjoyed Pride and Prejudice, I too am a big fan of it, so much i have over 20 different versions of it by different authors. A little obsessive to say the least, but I really love to read!

Ladies, I've been reading A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith, the beloved American classic about a young girl's coming-of-age at the turn of the century. The picture she writes of the poverty and squalor is mesmerizing, but it's not all gloomy. I think you'll like the advice to a young mother to read a page a day to her children. One page from Shakespeare and one from the Bible...

So, after a hectic summer with lots of work and family drama, I'm back to picking up the books. I've read two books from Sandra Brown, which by the way I LOVE. Play Dirty, Smoke Screen and currently on Tough Customer. I've also decided to give James Patterson a try and read Honeymoon by him and I don't know if I would say that I like him that much. I felt that the story was to drawn out when I kind of already knew what was going to happen. Sandra Brown on the other hand, I'm a little biased because she is from Texas and she bases a lot of her books here in Texas, Play Dirty was based in Dallas, which is where I live, and I felt I was in the actual book with the characters. She phenomenal at what she does and she keeps you turning the pages. When I'm done with Tough Customer, I'm not sure what else to pick up. So I'll have to look at the recommended list to pick my next book. :) Janelle, i'm glad we picked up a few more members!!!!
