I have a lot of req’d reading in summer school but I want to use this book to cleanse the mental palette, so to speak. Also, I wanted to learn a little more about the man than the documentaries are able to cover since I plan on naming my son John Guthrie *, after him. Needless to say, I love his music and already know lots of the broad strokes of his bio but this will go in depth. Plus, this was one of the only goals that I accomplished from my unsuccessful but revelatory May bootcamp attempt. Still trying. 1 week ago
Another piece of French chic lit.
It`s overly sappy, expected and the writing style doesn’t do anything for me.
That being said, it’s fun, an easy read and fascinatingly, not that corny.
It’s also interesting that it was written by a man, and that the main character is a man… Chic lit from the point of view of a man…
The story draws on the idea of the one that got away, the only true love that ever mattered and that one never gets over…
Let`s just say I found myself thinking about my X all the time. I still think about him everyday. On days I brood I hate him. On days I feel alienated, I sometimes wish he was there to understand. It made me fantasize that we were each other’s long lost love. That we’re still a part of each other today. I know he’s a part of me.
In short, I thought it was an okay book but it touched a nerve. Not to mention that the protagonists are about my age today and had met at the time my X and I had as well.
Guess it doesn’t matter how much or how little one enjoys a book, it only matters that it’s touched you. 1 week ago

...because I did buy more books which I have been reading. Most of the books I normally read are set in the US or the Caribbean or Africa (West or South). I decided to try authors from different backgrounds than I am used to. I am currently investigating Indian authors. 2 weeks ago
The Appeal and I’m in the of In Odd we Trust. Will probably read Rhapsody next. 4 weeks ago
The tale of how four Spaniards became shipwrecked on the Texas coast in 1528 and went from conquerors to slaves to drug-dealers to medicine men, and spent 8 years walking from Galveston to the Sea of Cortes across the deserts of the Southwest.
This book also covers my boot camp goal to read a book about someone I respect: Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca, who gets my vote as the first nameable Texan, not to discount the illustrious tribes that have inhabited our great state such as the Jumanos or the Karankawas. 1 month ago
My biggest problem is that I get distracted by books from the library or from friends and family that have something I really want to read.
Also, I have a LOT of books. I’ve been cataloging them and I have over 400 so far and that doesn’t include two book cases of fiction I haven’t gotten to yet, any of the reference books on my desk I use for writing, or the book case full of nonfiction books.
ps – I’m not including my sweetie’s Nora Roberts books in this goal. Her writing turns my stomach. 2 months ago
more difficult then I thought. I have lots of unread books, maybe around 20-30, so it might take even a year, but sooner or later I will complete it.
Soon I will list all the books I have and start reading them. 4 years ago
Sold maybe 20 in all to 1/2 Price Books and got 17.00. I want to use the proceeds to buy only one book, “The Useful and Edible Native Plants of Texas and the Southwest” so that I can utilized it for another goal on here.
I am at school now but I was thinking that I would even make a checklist of the remainder of core books when I get home just so I know what I am up against.
The wife has expressed a desire to go to bed earlier on a regular basis so maybe I can institute a policy of reading in bed, which I never do because I am usually bleary-eyed from watching a few too many episodes of Battle Star Galactica, et al. 2 months ago
The fewer books I own, the quicker that this’ll be done. A while back I had a “Media Sale” at which I sold all the books and music that people were willing to buy so the only books that I have left are either the ‘leftovers’ from that sale or the ones that have intense sentimental value. I could probably whittle these down to about 1/3 of my current collection and, as a result, I’d have only the ones that I sincerely want to read. I mean, right now I think the only reason I haven’t discarded them yet is because I want to make my bookshelf look justified. 2 months ago
This year I’m reading faster than last ones. However I’m now very used to reading e-books (which are very practical to read on the train) so I still have lot of unread paper books and from time to time I can resist and buy new ones.

A revelation. Everyone, I mean EVERYONE seems to have read it. The movie is currently being shot in France.
A novel that seems to speak to all. It cuts through people’s characters, motivations and histories, so effectively that I often wish I had had those words to slash back at whoever has ever pissed me off.
It speaks for me. And makes me want to write. I’m no aspiring author but it shows you that that ugly ball of baggage can be neatly and elegantly untangled.
The novel features a mother-dearest. An incandescent yet empty older sister. An underdog, late-bloomer heroine. Men who yearn for acceptance and who have bought their way through women’s hearts. Who now yearn for authenticity. Children and their unique way of perceiving the world. An ambitious adolescent man-eater, biatch in-the-making. Blue bloods. Blue collars. French white trash. What moves men, women, children and young adults. Money, love, power, social mobility. Romantic and parental rejections… and budding love.
Hard to describe what this book does to me. So very touching! 3 months ago
This one was hit and miss for me.
On one hand incredibly boring (my ADD was through the charts) in all her tedious descriptions of butchery and on the other, a wealth of insights on her female mind. Sensuality, fantasy, obsession whilst remaining human, flawed and accessible.
I’m sure the butchery bits were a metaphor for something… If only I cared enough to figure it out… 4 months ago
