Still the same one. I haven't had time to read. :(

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength

I must learn to love the fool in me- the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries...

Moneyball.

Fascinating look at the Oaklands A's and their brand of baseball. Even though Brad Pitt's not in the book, the book is better than the movie, which was great.

Change Your Brain Change Your Body by Dr. Daniel G. Amen. Boost your brain to improve your weight, skin, heart, energy and focus. It's a medical book but "pedestrian" friendly. It's a great book and reveals how everything you put into your body and the exercises you do can either improve or hurt your mental health as you age. I think Dr. Amen is coming to Houston in November to do a seminar on this subject, but it's much cheaper just to read the book.

Let's see...I'm reading right now:

and on my library's e-book, I'm reading Stephanie Laurens' Bastion Club, A Fine Passion vol. 4, of the series. It's pretty good.

Let me know if it's any good! Has anyone read any of "The Cat Who..." series books? They are short books but hysterical. They are mystery books where the PI's cat helps him solve the myseries.

Megan, we don't get HBO--otherwise, I'd be watching, too! I love to see the contrast between books and movies.

My husband's now reading The Shack...and drum roll, please: enjoying it! I'm starting Lisa Gardner's Alone tomorrow.

Thank you, Mary. My parents have been recommending No 1 Ladies Detective Agency to me for years. Just hadn't gotten to it yet. A couple weeks ago I caught the first episode of the new HBO series based on the books. It was great, so I figured I better get reading so I can watch the show on tv! (I like to read the books before watching the movie or tv show!)

Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask why climb the highest mountain? ... Why does Rice play Texas? We choose to [do these things], not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win..."

I am a member of audible.com and so is a friend of mine. Between the two of us we have a library full of books! lol

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength

I must learn to love the fool in me- the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries...

Wow, Donna--that's quite a schedule! I always have an audio book going in the car. Thank goodness for Half Price, lol. I've tried getting them from the library but the copies have been worn out by the time I get them...so off to the bookstores I go.

I have one full-time and two part-time jobs plus I sell Arbonne and Scentsy...I don't have much time to read. That's why I listen to books on tape. I can listen to them while driving or exercising or whatever. It helps quite a bit!

Megan, you'll enjoy the #1 Ladies Detective Agency! I read it a couple of years ago for a book club thing.

Donna, I really enjoyed The Shack...very thought provoking. Now I'm halfway through The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult. She wrote My Sister's Keeper. One great thing about unemployment...I sometimes finish a book overnight!

I'm already figuring that out, Donna, and I've just started it! I've had about 5 friends recommend it just in the last 2 weeks and another friend actually brought it to me and said I HAD to read it!

I just finished one of the Patterson Maximum Ride books...I've read 3 so far, but all out of order! If I would have known that the story was continuous I would have tried to get them all at once and go from there!

Happy Easter!
