What I’m Reading

I've had some fantastic free time lately.  That's what happens when you're off of work and have no car for going anywhere.  Some may call it "stuck" at home but I prefer to call it part of my house arrest.

Oh, I'm not being held hostage.  It just sounds like it.

The tough part about your kid having your car for school is when you think of stuff you need to complete a project.  You can't just jump in your car and go get what you need.  So, you just make do.  Or make don't.  However you want to look at it.

I've chosen to read.  I have a pile of books just waiting on me to get to them and I will…at the rate I'm going.  Books have a way of taking you places.  Many times it's places you'd never have a chance to go.  Or they tell you stories that change your heart and touch your soul.  I can't imagine not having books.   I love them.

I thought I'd share a few that I've read this last week or so.  Each one so different from the other but all good enough to finish (if you know what I mean).

Bossypants by Tina Fey

If you're a fan of Tina Fey (SNL, 30 Rock & Sarah Palin impersonation) and don't mind sketchy language this book is a good choice.  She is just as funny in her book as she is in her shows.  She tells the story of growing up with a staunchly conservative dad and how she got into the business.  It's quite funny just like her.  I finished it quick because she tells the story fast.  It was worth the wait.

A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard

Yes, I read this.  I had to.  This story had captured my heart and I needed to see for myself that this really happened.  It was hard to read some of the horror she went through but the fact that she is alive now and living victoriously is amazing!  Her sweetness shines through on every page and as a mom, I can only imagine how this affected her mother.  I'm glad I read it.

The Amateur by Edward Klein

I'll be completely honest….THIS BOOK IS A MUST READ!  If you're an American and you're registered to vote, this book is very eye-opening.  The sources who reveal the real Barack Obama will blow your mind.  It's no secret he runs his presidency on minimal amounts of experience but this book will infuriate you as to just how poorly equipped this man is to lead the United States of America.  Get it and see for yourself.  It's not a boring political read either.  It is very interesting.

That's it.  I'm in the middle of a few other books right now but I'll share about them another time.  I have just gotten my hands on a set of car keys and I'm taking my opportunity to run to Home Depot to look at and HOPEFULLY BUY a washing machine!  That laundry….it's a piling!
