Oct. 7/On my nightstand



One for the Money by Janet Evanovich — Got this from the library for one of my bookclubs. It is a fun read so far. I’m going to hurry and finish it though because I just picked up two new library books today.

The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery — The chic women over at French Chic recommended this book to me. I’ve been on the library waiting list for ages and really looking forward to digging into it.

The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey — recommended by so many of you awesome women and also by my former priest! I am looking forward to starting this one as well.

Accidentally on Purpose by Mary Pols — Still re-reading this one by my former coworker for my other bookclub meeting next week.

I need to go back and watch the episodes of this sitcom based on her book. I caught the first one, but I have been so engrossed in reading that I have forgotten when it is on and missed it.  In fact,  I have been so happy with so many books lately that I haven’t watched TV for ages. Instead, I go upstairs and curl up with my latest book. I did watch one movie this week “Wolverine: The X Men Origins” or something like that (not sure exact title) It was a fun movie.

I should just aside the Kate Atkinson and chess books for awhile. They aren’t happening for awhile I can tell.

  1. You’ll love the Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series!!!! It’s a blast until about book 11 or 12. I just finished 15, and it’ll probably be the last one I’ll read. It’s starting to get stale and repetitive.

    Can’t say enough good things about Dave Ramsey.

    1. Oh, I think I could eat ice cream for any meal. I actually made it for my kids and dh and he didn’t want it, so I ate some of it. It just melts and makes your oatmeal really creamy and sweet.

  2. Janet’s books are so popular at our library! Will your club be reading book 2 as well or is it more random books? Right now, our book club is reading The Time Traveler’s Wife and I have ordered the movie so that the club can have a special viewing. I love setting up things like that. I did have one lady bring the book (The Time Traveler’s Wife) back immediately and told one of our staff that she thought it was the silliest book she had ever read. This coming from a well read person, now it has made me curious to read. 😉

    Right now, I am reading a wonderful book, The Giril in the Green Sweater. True story based on her experiences during WWII and living in a sewer to hide from the Nazis. I am amazed at the strength and endurance she and her family had to have in order to survive. I have had to read it in small bits – taking in how people could treat others in that way. My friends, who had been visiting us this past week or so, had made a stop over at the Concentration/Work camps and shared with me how they felt as they walked through but also pictures…it is was the pictures that got me. Interesting that I would be reading the book at the same time.

    I hope you are feeling better. You look marvelous – as always!

    1. Cat,
      Thanks. Maybe I’ll check that book out. I visited Dachau before and still have such powerful memories of it.
      Our bookclub will read something else next. We each take turns picking something in that group. The other group, we have voted on books and have them scheduled up to next summer.
      Stephanie, I will probably start it tonight. I was on the wait list at the library for at least two months I think! And now I have three weeks before the next person on the list gets a copy!

  3. I just got “Elegance of the Hedgehog” myself and am about three chapters into it. It’s so much more philosophical than American literature. I’m fascinated by the idea that French psychiatrists have “prescribed” to some of their patients that they read this book. I hope you’ll blog a bit about what you think when you read it.

    1. Marsi,
      I hope to start the book tonight, but may not be able to because (YEA!) I just got two freelance writing assignments.
      When I do read it, however, I will try to blog about the book some and would also be interested in your thoughts on it, as well.
