In fiction, I'm reading "The Lady of the Rivers" by Phillipa Gregory (historical fiction). In spiritual books, I am reading "A Spirituality for the 21st Century: The Rule of St. Benedict." The last one is by Sister Joan Chittister, a Benedictine nun.

I`ve never read any books by Adriana Trigiani but they looked interesting and I`m in need of some good reads. These are the ones I found:

Milk Glass Moon (2002)

Viola in Reel Life (2009)
Viola in the Spotlight (2010)

Very Valentine (2009)
Brava, Valentine (2010)

Thanks for the review! Which book should I read first?

Lorie, I've read a few books then watched the movie and sometimes have been disappointed that the movie wasn't as good as the book; but I plan to talk with DH about renting the movie (about the only way we watch them.....thank you, Netflix).

Can't remember if I specifically mentioned it, but I read "Lone Survivor" before I even knew about the movie. I badgered my DH into taking me to the theater to watch it on the big screen. Overall, considering a movie cannot cover everything a book does, I'd say the movie was very well done. Years ago, I'd read a book, then watched the movie (can't even remember the name of it!) and was disappointed in the movie. It happens.

Thanks for your review of the book.

I`m still very excited to see the movie because the book kept you wondering what really happened and was full of suspense so if the movie is made well it should be great. I read the book in about 3 days it really kept my attention. It was just not the type of ending that I hoped for.

I watched the movie trailer and it looks interesting. Sorry to hear the last chapters of the book were a disappointment. Thanks for the heads-up.

Has anyone read the book Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn ?

I thought the book was really good...
until the last couple of chapters. After such a build up of anticipation throughout the book, I feel like the ending fell flat.

They made it into movie. Stars Ben Affleck ...

Gone Girl opens in theaters on October 3rd, 2014.

I finished Command Authority, and am into "Killing Kennedy" by Bill O'Reilly. I don't listen to his program, but his 3 "Killing" books (Killing Lincoln and Jesus) are excellent historical accounts. No, "Killing Jesus" is not meant to be a spiritual account - it's historical, and fascinating background info.

First for Women magazine and the Bible. Currently I am in Numbers and Mark in my Word.

Jesus is my strength for I can do all things through Christ Jesus Who strengthens me.Philippians 4:13

I'll have to check out Seven Pillars. Sounds interesting.

Yes, I've seen One for the Money. I actually saw the movie and then started reading the series. Just finished 13 last night. Will probably start 14 tonight or tomorrow. emoticon

The MTC Action Plan videos are free if you signed up for the P31 Online Bible Study. All you have to do is buy the book. I haven't watched this weeks video, but last week was good.

I just started listening to The Seven Pillars Of Health by Dr. Don Colbert on audiobook today.
I`ve loved his books for many years!


Here`s the book blurb:

What you can do for yourself concerning your health, God will not do. It’s up to you to do it now. Most diseases are caused by unhealthy lifestyles, poor diet, lack of exercise, stress, and inadequate sleep. This book, based on best-selling author Dr. Don Colbert’s life message, reveals seven fundamental principles that will enable people to walk in and enjoy the health God intended. Dr. Colbert explains the body’s vital need for:

• Water

• Sleep and rest

• Living food

• Exercise

• Detoxification

• Supplements

• Coping with stress

Colbert, who conducts comprehensive seminars in churches based on the subject of this book, presents a noncondemning, lifegiving approach to optimal health. His well-respected life plan outlined in The Seven Pillars of Health will help people make healthy choices one day at a time!


It`s available in Hardback, Paperback, Kindle & Audiobook

A sugar detox is something that I definitely need. I`ll be checking out that 21 Day Sugar Detox program. Please keep us updated on your progress with the program & give us a review.


The Stephanie Plum series is great! I even enjoyed the movie One For The Money youtu.be/K7Rqrts4jPM
Have you seen it? If so, what did you think?


I haven`t done the MTC Action Plan yet. Isn`t there a fee? How much is it? How has the Action Plan helped you?

I ordered both the book and cookbook on my Kindle. Something I want to try - hoping it helps.

I'm really enjoying the Stephanie Plum series. Life is too serious and it's a good distraction and good laugh. I'm almost done with Lean Mean Thirteen and will start 14 right after.

I'm also enjoying the MTC Action Plan. Although I haven't watched this weeks video yet.

I recently started Tom Clancy's last book, "Command Authority". I'm sorry he died, so there won't be any more new books from him.

While on a long trip, DH and I listened to "Killing Jesus" by Bill O'Reilly and (somebody). It's not meant as a spiritual book, but rather, as an historical account. Very good. They go back and give a lot of pre-Jesus Roman history, which sets up the cultural climate for when Jesus was a human. I've also read their "Killing Lincoln" book and want to read "Killing Kennedy". LOL Lest you think all I read are "killing" books, just know that these 3 are historical in nature, and very, very good - whatever you may think of Bill O'Reilly.

I was the same way when I started reading The Daniel Plan. It`s great but I have trouble sticking with restrictive diets. I`ll read it again one day when I can commit to it for a few weeks.


I love all of Joyce Myers` books. Battlefield of the Mind is one of her best.

I`ve been following the Proverbs31 Made to Crave Bible Study too! I have a thread about it on here.


21 Day Detox sounds interesting. Who is the author?


I love the Stephanie Plum series. I bought Sizzling Sixteen a few weeks ago but I haven`t started reading it yet.

I was reading The Daniel Plan, but I've decided against continuing it for now. I do have Battlefield of the Mind to read, so I may start that soon.

Before you judge me, make sure you're perfect.

I would rather be known in life as an honest sinner than a lying hypocrite.

Right now I`m reading Joyce Meyer`s book Look Great, Feel Great: 12 Keys to Enjoying a Healthy Life Now

www.amazon.com/Look-Great-Feel-Enjoy
in
g-Healthy/dp/0446504912



Here`s the blurb for the book:
The bodies God gives are instruments for experiencing a fulfilling life on earth, for doing good works, for spiritual development. To do the work individuals are meant to do, they need to keep in shape. They must maintain a sound mind, body, and soul. Yet in the modern world, it is all too easy to let one, two, or all three of these slip. LOOK GREAT, FEEL GREAT presents Joyce's twelve-key plan to address the epidemic of "self esteem drought" that appears to be a factor in perpetuating habits that create poor health. Additionally, Joyce will provide helpful resources, like the "Ounce of Prevention Checklist," for self-maintenance.
