I finished “Turn Up The Heat” by Dr. Kevin Leman. Wasn’t quite what I was expecting, but for $.99, it was a good read. :-) 2 years ago
Entries from everyone
I just got done reading “Mostly Harmless”, the last of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy books (at least, I think so). It stayed true to form (see my previous reviews of the others) but had, although not a happy ending, one that wrapped things up nicely. Well, not nicely, but at least the thing didn’t leave you jolly well thinking “oh gee, another idiot who can never end his series because he thinks he might some day continue the plot and make even more money off of it, but not likely, so we’re all left wondering what the heck happened.” Nope. He didn’t leave it hanging. And I appreciate that. 2 years ago
I haven’t had the ambition to find and list all of the books that I need to read to finish my goal yet, though admittedly, I did start the list.
However, it is important to me before I forget that I read them, to list the books that I have read recently which count towards this goal.
Bruchko – Very good book about a young missionary in South America. Highly recommended.
Bruchko and the Motilone Miracle – The sequel to the book above.
Death On The Nile – I really enjoy a good Agatha Christie book and this one was not disappointing. I have to admit though, I knew the outcome about halfway through the book, which is unusual for me.
Cat Among the Pigeons – Another good Agatha Christie book.
Skinwalkers – Good mystery by Tony Hillerman.
The Wailing Wind – Another Tony Hillerman mystery.
Green Smoothie Revolution – An interesting book about raw food diets and how greens can play a role in your health. Not sure I believe everything she says, but it makes you think.
Green For Life – By the same author as the last book and covers the same subject. If I had to differentiate between the books, I would say this one has more general information in it about raw food and green smoothies, while the other one focuses more intensely on the benefits of green smoothies. Also, at least half of the previous book is devoted to green smoothie recipes.
Pure and Simple Natural Weight Control – A book devoted to describing the health benefits of fresh extracted, raw fruit and vegetable juices. It came free with the juicer. What can I say? ;-) Still, some of it was interesting. Again, not sure I agree with everything in it, and some of it is very condescending, but there are good tidbits in there.
Homeopathic First Aid for Animals – A very good book, best described by it’s title. A must have for anyone interested in treating animals homeopathically. Also, the stories that she adds about some of the situations she’s used the medicine in are fascinating.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – Very funny, but sometimes stupid and crude. Fair warning.
The Restaurant at the End of the Universe – See above.
Life, the Universe and Everything – See above.
So Long and Thanks for All the Fish – See above.
I think that’s it for now. More to come I hope. :-) 2 years ago
I think I need to clarify this goal a little bit. Quite honestly, I don’t know what my original intent was after viewing my last entry about this goal. I think it was probably what I am going to clarify, but I probably had been reading Prince Caspian again when I started this goal.
Anyway, my goal here to “catch up” on my reading means that I want to read all of the books that I own that I haven’t read yet, because I own a lot of books. And a lot of them I have never read. I have a hard time letting myself buy more books when I have so many I have never even touched and money is tight.
Also, I want to catch up on reading the books that people have lent me. I have less of those now than I did, which is good, but I still need to finish them as well.
Later on when I feel a little more ambitious, I’ll add a list of books that I need to finish to “catch up”. 2 years ago
I don’t see this as a goal that I will accomplish.
My husband & I decided to journal our restaurant experiences. We do not eat out often anymore and this will make our experiences cooler. I know Borders has a diary-like book for restaurants. Actually, it is called Take Out Menu File. But we are going to use it as a journal. Anyway, to get to the area where this book is, I had to pass the bargain section of books. I ended up leaving w/7 books. I purchased all of them for $40. I told the cashier, I didn’t need a bag. He asked, “are you sure?” I said, I have some in the car and I only intended to buy one book. We smiled, he said that happens most of the time. Well, I guess I feel better and I did not buy a magazine this time:0)
I did finish yesterdays magazine. 4 more magazines & a stack of books! 3 years ago
I’m half-way through the current copy. I just finished the article-The Sacred Path to Healing Relationships by John Welshons
Great article about a relationship that you may have with a parent. John is having issues with his father. BTW, This is in 1980. He drives to Boston to receive some advice from Ram Dass(contemporary spiritual teacher). This is a quote that I liked from the article that Ram Dass is saying to John referring to his father “You know, people are just being who they are. Your father is just being who he is. If he’s miserable and nasty, that’s his problem. If you don’t like it, that’s your problem. This is the way God created him. Are you going to spend all your life angry about it?”
-I wish I could share more what I’ve read, but it is time to get ready for work… 3 years ago
