Just read Emma and Me by E Flock. I enjoyed the voice of the narrator, but needed a bit more hope...and the ending felt rushed. Good writing, though!

Kathyrn, I'm really getting in to your book and am totally enjoying it. It reminds me a bit of The Glass Castle whicih I devoured. Have you read that?

Poppie, I still have one of yours hanging on the bulletin board right beside my computer...I still read it at least once or twice a week. I'll send you that one if you need it (Triumph and Resurrection). I'll check through my PM's as well...I think I've kept every poem you've ever sent me. I'll send them back.

Currently reading:

Love Without End by Green (just started)

Unchristian:what a new generation really thinks about Christianity and why it matters by Kinnaman and Lyons (mid-way)

The divided mind:the epidemic of mindbody disorders by Sarno (just started)

Crazy Love by Chan (started this one, but have put on hold, as I fear I'll have to provide a book report to the one who so lovingly gave it to me to read -- need to concentrate while reading, in other words)

Reflexology: Health at your fingertips by Kunz (pick it up for a quick fix --- reading and rereading, as desired)

God's Problem by Ehrman (just finishing up)

gims, I wish we lived closer for many reasons. We could book share. I's be interested in all the books you're reading except the reflexology one. Not sure why, but haven't gotten in to that yet.
Are you learning aything about it that's worth sharing?

I just finished: Resting in Him: I need to slow down, but I can't. It's a Women of Faith study book. I highly recommend it. It's allowing me to make slow changes toward slowing down.

Emerging Trends Every Online Entrepreneur Must Know - just getting in to this one. Haven't read enough to comment.

Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking - My youngest son gave this to me for my birthday. Unfortunately, I'm having to think too much to get in to it, but I'm hanging in there.


Tender Graces, by Kathryn Magendie (our Kathryn Magendie)
This is the book I keep trying to steal away to read. I can't wait to see what happens to the children I've come to love among the pages. This is an incredibly well written, face paced book about a dysfunctional family trying to make the most of life. You'll laugh and cry at their antics, wish you could kidnap the children and at time, smack the adults. Alcohol is at the root of the dysfunction.

Kathleen, I appreciate your comment about being obsessive. I got a chuckle out of that. I also read several books at a time. Typically, fiction, non-fiction, and a faith based book.

This just made me smile - thank you! smile
