For JerseyGirl: I believe that I will not read any more Brian Freeman books. Immoral wasn't a bad book and I have read some that I liked less, BUT there are so many good books that I want to read that I think I'll pass on any more of his.
I was disappointed in this one. It had won the 2006 Macavity for Best First Novel and was finalist for 4 other awards so I thought it should be a sure thing. The characters were not really likable. Usually after beginning a series, I want to read the next one because I like the characters but not this one.

Slowly and surely wins the race.

I have just started doing volunteer work back at the Florida library and the new books are begging me to take some home. I began with Jim Butchers "Side Jobs" a book of short stories about the Dresden Files. Good read.

I'm about 1/2 way through the Brian Freeman book.
I haven't yet decided if I will get another of his.
Right now it could go either way.
Will try to remember to give my verdict when I finish it.

No Leanmean - I have not read Brian Freeman. Let us know if you like him.

I have to check to see if I read the first Mrs. Miracle. I don't remember reading it. I will probably run to the library later today or tomorrow.
I assume I should read the first before the second one.

I Really Hate my Neck by Nora Ephron

DIET IS A FOUR LETTER WORD!!!!

We are constantly creating our "karma" or destiny through our intentions, thoughts and deeds in this moment. It is achieved through countless deliberate acts of selflessness.

It's hard to be happy with others if we are not happy with ourselves.

Just keep on moving and you'll get there.


If you ever want to feel good about yourself, go out and help someone else!

I just started reading "I Still Dream About You" by Fannie Flagg and still reading "Cleo: The Cat Who Mended a Family" by Helen Brown.

--Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid-in-sideways, totally worn out, shouting, "WOW, What a ride!"
---------------------------------
Of all God's creatures there is only one that cannot
be made the slave of the leash. That one is the cat.
If man could be crossed with the cat, it would improve
man, but it would deteriorate the cat." -- Mark Twain
