Sounds like a fun read.

Lord help me remember that nothing is going to happen today that you and I can't handle together.

If ignorance is bliss why aren't more people happy

No kidding, eh? Another time, he apparently got mad at her because he was driving quickly and crazily at their Sandringham estate. She was freaking out in the passenger seat, sucking in her breath frequently, gripping the door handle, and he told her to "stop that right now, or I'll put you out of the car". She stopped. Later, a big mucky- muck who was in the car with them asked her why she didn't argue with him. She said, "you heard what he said. I didn't want to walk."

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

I found an interesting book at my parents' house yesterday, so am borrowing it - it's called "Corgis and Bess" and is a compilation of little anecdotes of the British Royal Family. Such fun!

For example, after Queen Elizabeth was coronated, her husband Prince Philip met her at the door of the cathedral as she processed out. He looked at her, smiled, and said, "Where'd you get the new hat?" (her crown, lol)

Maternal Harbor by Marie F Martin. It's a freebee I got from Amazon for my Kindle. Pretty good so far.

I am reading The Heaven Trilogy by Ted Dekker. Just finished reading Help I'm Talking and I Can't Shut Up! By Claudine Stubbs Henry. Hubby and I love to read also, it has been difficult lately though. Hope you find some good stuff!

I have little time to read for pleasure during the school year - I work full-time as well as work at two volunteer positions. I read letters from the women I work with for my volunteer job, so I mostly read those! emoticon Also, I am a teaching assistant, so I am constantly reading English novels to my EAL (ESL) students.

However, I have a mile-high "to be read" pile of books for when I am off in the summer. I hope to plow through a big chunk of it!

I'm reading The Aviator's Wife. So far it is interesting. I just finished I am Malala, which was interesting, but a bit confusing since it talks a lot about the history and politics of the Swat Valley in Pakistan. It is inspirational how Malala and her Dad are working so hard for education (particularly for girls.)

My husband and I love to read. For my birthday month (he celebrated me the whole month of February by doing little things for me each day) I got 3 books, best gifts for me. Plus a friend gave me a marriage book for my birthday. We recently moved so I purged my book collection and have since gotten a kindle paperwhite which I love.

So, what are you all reading? Got any good recommendations?

I am currently reading Becoming Myself by Stasi Eldridge. I highly recommend it. I have loved it. This is a rare occurrence, but James isn't reading anything other than school books right now. His summer break starts in 4 weeks so at the point he'll pick up something to read for fun.
