What are you reading?
I just finished reading Motor Mouth by Janet Evanovich and right now am 1/3 of the way through The Memory Keeper's Daughter. I have to say, I am loving the Memory Keeper's Daughter but, while I adore Ms Evanovich's Stephanie Plum Series, I will not recommend Motor Mouth. I have 1/2 a dozen books sitting on my nightstand waiting for my attention as well as a list of must reads that I will eventually go knocking on the libraries door for.
Here's a little irony for you... I started this post a couple of days ago and just didn't have a chance to finish it. So this morning I headed out yardsaling bright and early with my friend Pam and I found the find of all finds! This book, Socks for Supper was my FAVOURITE book as a child. When my sister-in-law became pregnant for their first child I sent it to them... Then along came Ryan and I wanted it back! I have scoured the city and Kijiji and e-bay trying to find it and there it was, sitting in a box of textbooks at a yardsale. I gave avery audible gasp when I saw it and everyone there wanted to know what I'd found. When I asked 'the lady' how much she jokingly said '$30'. The funny thing is I probably would have paid it! I didn't pay anything for it though - Pam bought me this awesome memory of my childhood! Oh, and I picked up a couple more for Ryan as well!
