ERNOINACTION; I read The Book Thief about 3 weeks ago, I thought it was an amazing story.

Now I am reading The Girl in the Green Sweater by Krystyna Chiger; the true story of a group of Polish Jews who hid in the city's sewers for 14 months to avoid the Nazis. The author is the last surviving member of that group.

The Lesson by Suzanne Woods Fisher, book 3 in the Stony Ridge Seasons series.

One of my favorite authors of Amish fiction, and this book is my favorite of all of hers so far.

I'm starting off the new year with a new book.

I've just started reading Raymond Chandler's "The Big Sleep" - not a new release but it was given to me by a friend who recommended it. It's a really delightfully written book and I'm enjoying it immensely so far.

Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance!


2017 and I am back again... up and down the same 5 lbs, this time on the higher side of 200, depressing since I had stayed just under 200 for almost a year.
Slim is where I wanted to be in 201 & 2011! Never happened, plateaued for a long time and gave up... got off track, but never left, so am back on track again!!! Make 2012 my year! So far, did finally lose 25 lbs. over the summer, but have found about 11 of it so far, it didn't hide g

Today I am starting "You Gotta Sin To Get Saved" by J.D. Mason.

"When you're a beautiful person on the inside, there is nothing in the world that can change that about you. Jealousy is the result of one's lack of self-confidence, self-worth, and self-acceptance.

The Lesson: If you can't accept yourself, then certainly no one else will."

-Sasha Azevedo-

I just finished The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Stories of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl by Timothy Egan; it was a fascinating read, especially if you love American History.

I'm ready for something light-hearted and fun though, so I am reading book #2 in the Cool Cat series by Theresa Weir, The Geek with the Cat Tattoo. Like the first book, it's part light romance, part mystery, and part of the story is told from the point of view of the cat.

I just finished The Book Thief by Markus Zusak; such a powerful and beautifully written story, one of the best books I have ever read. Looking forward to seeing the movie version.

Now I will be starting The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl by Timothy Egan.
