Currently I’m reading another Jeffrey Archer book called, “Shall We Tell the President?” It’s good so far, keeps me up later than I should be up!!

I’ve gone through a few books in the last little while because they’ve been shorter books and interesting. I read a Jeffrey Archer book called “A Twist in the Tale”. It’s a collection of short stories with twists in them that you wouldn’t expect. Very good read.

I’m also reading “Real Food for Mother and Baby” by Nina Planck. Just an interesting take on eating while trying to get pregnant, being pregnant, and breastfeeding. I could always use some help!! I kind of have a sugar addiction.

I’m almost finished “Unexpected Blessings” by Barbara Taylor Bradford. It’s also an interesting read about a few wealthy families and their situations. Just a light, easy book.

There was another one that I returned to the library already, but for the life of me I can’t remember the name of it. If I do, I will post it.

Ok, it’s been a while since I’ve last blogged. It just gets away from me and then I feel like I have nothing to write about. I’m sure there is, I’m just too tired to write about it! Here comes another book; it’s an easy post! I actually already finished reading it, but it was really good. It was another John Grisham book, but it was a non-fiction instead called “The Innocent Man”.

Right now I’m actually re-reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I saw the movie back in November or maybe the beginning of December and I really enjoyed it. I thought I should re-familiarize myself with the book.

In my Christmas stocking I got a book called “Birds of Prey” by Wilbur Smith. I’ve never heard of it, but apparently it’s the first book in a series, so I’m looking forward to reading it.

I took a break from the Ken Follett book and dug through Dave’s drawer o’ books. I came up with a John Grisham one, “The Associate”. It’s a page turner. Most of the time, at the end of the day (when I get a chance to read) I just want something to take my brain off everything else so I can fall asleep. The only problem is that sometimes I stay up later than I wanted to in order to keep reading.

Of course, then there’s Dave next to me who literally can open his book and maybe read one sentence and the next thing I know he’s asleep! I don’t know how he can do this for two reasons: one – how on earth can you keep the book upright, and two – once you start reading how can you not just get into it?? It will forever mystify and amaze me!

I have been reading Ken Follet’s new book “Fall of Giants”. It’s a pretty long read at almost 1,000 pages, but it certainly keeps you interested. I’m close to halfway through, but since it’s only a 7 day loan from the library and I don’t get much time to read, it’s going to take me a little while, but it is good.

Ok, so I just finished reading “Open”, the autobiography of Andre Agassi. I had gotten it out from the library and couldn’t finish it before it needed to be returned so I finally got it out again and finished it. The same thing happened with “The Bourne Identity” by Robert Ludlum. Actually I have the audio book version of it on my iPod and I remember listening to it when I couldn’t get back to sleep at night or while nursing in the wee hours of the morning with a newborn. Let’s just say I have had to “read” and “reread” it so many times, that I decided to get it in print from the library. It’s a fairly lengthy novel and I think I’ve only got it for 2 weeks so I think I’ll be taking it out again! Unfortunately our library seems to have very few copies of this book so it can take a while before getting it in my hands again. I try not to buy books unless I LOVE them otherwise I think I’d have a house full of books! I must say I don’t have the same rules when buying for my kids. I have no qualms getting books for them as opposed to toys, so my kids have a lot of books. Thank goodness Maya LOVES to read!

I thought I’d start sharing what book I’m currently reading. I often have many on the go, but usually really into just one or two. Right now I’m reading “Gretzky’s Tears” by Stephen Brunt. I think Dave got it for Christmas last year and, as I recently read Gretzky’s autobiography, it’s a bit easier to understand this book. There are a lot of hockey/other references that I have no clue about, but overall, it’s a fairly decent read. I really love autobiographies and have read quite a few. It’s neat to read about famous people’s lives.

A few I’ve read either recently or stand out to me are Billy Crystal’s, Jodie Sweetin’s, Nelson Mandela’s (I own this one because I really loved it when I first read it), and Andre Agassi’s.
