Hang on, let me over think this.

I'm sure our library will probably have them. Maybe in the children's section.

I know you are going to enjoy the Harry Potter series. They are very well written. I have all the books and have read them several times. As for the movies, they are a fair representation of the books. After reading the books, you will see certain discrepancies between the book and the movie, however those differences do not affect the story line.

It's mind over matter...

I want to read Harry Potter too. I haven't seen the movies as I don't want to spoil it. I will have to check out Goodreads.

I am reading Harry Potter for the first time! I am just about done with The Half Blood Prince!

I read a lot! I keep track of my want to reads and read on Goodreads.

We have several old cars and they still have carburetors. A 1975 MGB. A Cougar from the early 80s. An old rambler. We have had people ask to buy them. Hubby likes to work on things and fix things himself and that is hard any more with the new ones. I'm trying to get hubby to sell some of them but he loves my MGB. He actually loves the Rambler too but we have too many cars here. A 92 Dodge Caravan. A 93 Sierra. A 99 Chevy Prism. A 2002 Ford Fx4. We still drive a lot of them. Too much insurance for just 2 people.

I love James Bond. I watch those movies if they are on.

I have to admit there is some romance in Nora Robert's suspense novels. But it's the suspense aspect that appeals to me. Another author to try is Robert B. Parker. If you recall the TV series "Spenser for Hire", he is the author of the books that the TV series is based on. I love who dunit books. I have read all the James Bond books, even the ones written after Ian Fleming's death.

By the way, carburators are a thing of the past....and I can fix them too. LOL

I guess everyone has to drop a stinker now and then and this was it. LOL.

I have heard good things about Nora Roberts. After I finish Agatha I am going to check some other authors out. I have a short attention span, like a toddler, and I won't be looking for tomes the size of War And Peace. I think people overestimate the concentration capacity of their audiences. My son was a voracious reader and read all of the books in their school library so the teach allowed me to send classic books I had at home. I can remember the first time he encountered a book so boring he could not finish it. It was funny.

My husband would never admit to reading a romance novel even if he did happen to encounter one. I guess real men don't read romance novels. LOL. He tries to talk to me though about boring stuff like how to fix a carburetor. I'm sure it's fascinating for a man but I have actually done things like this with my first husband, thus we are divorced now. LOL.

April, I can relate to your plight with the Agatha Christie book. I can’t tell you how many times I started reading “Halloween”. I never finished the book. Right now I’m reading Nora Roberts. My honey got me started on her books, however I’m very picky. I read only the books that have suspense, not the romance novels. Lol

I had been a nurse for over a decade and had even done some diet counseling but low carb was a shock even to me when I first started. It's such a change from the Standard American Diet. It takes some time to get used to. I have found that drinking more water helps with the low energy and eating too. You may need to increase your daily carb/calorie allotment if you stay that way. Instead of doing real low like 20gms a day try going up by 5gms a day and see if that helps. I don't do real low carb.

We have some crafters in this group. You will have to show us your pictures.

We have some serious readers too. Right now I'm reading all of the Agatha Christie books they have in our library and there are a ton of them. One of them was so boring I thought I would have to kill myself to get through it. "Postern of Fate". My hubby asked me what a postern was and I said I didn't really know but I would think the term Septic Tank would apply to this book. It was one the Tuppence and Tommy ones and I wanted to off the geezers in nothing flat - kill these people, Agatha! So dull. Kind of shocking to read her after all these years as I was a child when I did the first time. There is a lot of prejudice in them.

I like horror movies too. Especially the old ones.

Hello there!

I am new to the team but I am a seasoned sparker. I tell ya what I am new to - is low carbing! I have been on a low carb diet since early October of this year. It's not the easiest thing I have done. I don't crave carbs anymore! My issue is keeping my eyes open!

I am so tired. I have zero energy!

My super power is my sense of humor and sarcasm. I am an adult returning to college to finish my degree. I love horror movies, read a crap ton of books, crafty, and I am seriously organized!

My un-super powers include cussing like a sailor, skeptical (which can be good at times), not really an optimist, and I have ADD. I am all over the place.

Okay, well, I think that's me. Super excited to be in this team! emoticon
