Slim to None - wouldn't recommend it as it is SLOW STARTING. It's about a food critic who finds herself fat and then has to make a lot of changes to get her stuff together and get thin again... and keep her job.

so far, she's just realizing she is a major beyotch. Oopsie! (and I am not that far in because I have been catching up on Hart of Dixie episodes before the big finale this coming week!)

I just finished reading The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult. I love Jodi Picoult as an author. She always tackles the tough/controversial subjects. However, although I gave this book a high rating in my book diary, it was a tough read for me. The novel centres around two main characters from the Holocaust. One was an Nazi SS and one was a survivor.

So, yes, I recommend this book but if you've never read Jodi Picoult before, you might want to start with some of her earlier ones. My favourites include Plain Truth, Salem Falls and Second Glance. And, if you have read her before, be forewarned that this one isn't for the sensitive reader.

The Bible, certainly do recommend it, with study. Also finally getting around to reading an autobiographical account of the battle for Iwo Jima by a friend of my mother's, Howard McLaughlin. Very intense, not for relaxing evening before bed, but moving.

OOPS! My mistake Amanda Quick is a pen name of Jayne Ann Krentz, not Nor Roberts. WHOOPS! These are two of my favorite authors though. Both with several pen names.

I'm in the middle of a series by Terry Goodkind, which the television series "Legend of the Seeker" was based on. I just finished book #5 of #12, so I have a way to go ...

The book I'm reading now is (The Amazing True Story) "Same Kind of Different As Me," Ron Hall & Denver Moore with Lynn Vincent. I've just started it, but OMG, this is writing at its best! I already know its going to be a favorite for me! emoticon

The last book I read was Whiskey Beach by Nora Roberts. It is an easy read with a good plot and memorable characters. Great escape from every day. You'll like it if you like a little thriller/mystery/romance type novel.

I am right now reading Anne of Green Gables for a book club. It is interesting to read a YA/youth book as an adult.

And a new novel by Amanda Quick, which I don't remember the title of but it's the next in the Lady's of Lantern Street trilogy. Set in the 1800's, again mystery/thriller/romance but also paranormal included in this one. Amanda Quick is one of the 3 pen names for Nora Roberts.

Oh yeah, I'm reading the Wheat Belly Diet book again too. Setting up for trying gluten free living as I've heard it helps with inflammation.

Can you tell I like to read?

Other than the book Eat to LIve which I am currently re-reading, the last book I read was Ken and Joni, the love story of Ken Tada and his quadripalegic wife, world famous, Joni Eareckson Tada. Joni is an author, a ministry leader for Joni and Friends and Wheels for the World which provides wheelchairs for the impoverished and neglected disabled of the world. She also is an artist who paints by holding a paintbrush in her mouth. The story details their meeting and engagement and wedding as well as Joni's fight with cancer and chronic debilitating pain. It was an excellent book, a quick read but yes, I would definitely recommend it.
