I started one the other day that I should have saved for winter reading, it's 800+ pages long, it's hard to find time this time of the year to sit down and read one that long.

book is The Power Of The Sword, a book based on the period leading up and during World War 2 in South Africa, the division of those that came from German ancestery and those of English. it also goes into the racial relations between black and white leading up to Arpthied(sp?).

it's good, just long for summer reading.

Could be, however she mentioned it involved three retired women. Is that part of that series? I've just recently read the first one...... thanks!

I bought Paul Deen's "It Ain't All About The Cooking" for my Mother's Day/B-Day present at the mall on Sunday. Looking forward to reading it, but it will probably be another week or so before I get to open it. This week is full of kid activities! Thank goodness 2 of her 3 activities are finished after this weekend! I can't say when was the last time I read an actual book .... I'm lucky to find time to read magazine articles!

I read "It Aint' All About the Cooking" last week! I'm a huge Paula fan, but was kind of shocked at some of the things in the book! Don't know what my next book will be ---- I've got several laying around waiting to be picked up, decisions!!!!!!!!

I just finished this this weekend. She is quite a hoot! She didn't hold anything back and I think that is what I love about her. She is who she is and nothing artificial about her.

I've got racks and racks of books but I usually don't have time to read much. But after going to the book deal with her there -- really made me even more anxious to read it.

I'm STILL reading Fannie Flagg's, CAN'T WAIT TO GET TO HEAVEN!
Maybe one day I'll finish it. No problem with the book, it's the reader!

I absolutely loved the Mitford series. However, I wasn't able to get into any of the "extra" books. They just didn't hold the appeal that the Mitford series did. In fact, I was thinking about reading the series again.

I am reading Angels and Demons right now. It was a gift someone gave me a long time ago. Didn't want to read it at first but now that I've started it, wow... I am enjoying it. Very stimulating.
