I hope those of us who celebrate Thanksgiving had a very blessed one.

I'm working all day today (Black Friday) and because of a death in the family on Thanksgiving my weekend plans got all changed. I'll be hosting my friends over on Saturday afternoon and Saturday night being spent with family. Sunday and Monday will be the service for her.

I read a couple of "free" ebooks and really enjoyed them. Out of Control by Kate Kelly and Wild For You by Sophia Knightly. I also read Sold On You by Sophia Knightly. I'm currently reading One Fine Fireman by Jennifer Bernard. I don't think I'll have that much time to read this weekend.

Any plans this weekend? What are you reading?

Have A Good Weekend Everyone!

Sorry for your loss Danielle. A loss is always sad but especially so during the holidays.

Been too busy to read lately - then there is the reading slump I've been trying to overcome. I tried Robyn Carr's Christmas book and for me it was just "okay". I attribute that to my inability to get truly interested in reading right now. I'm hoping Linda Howard's book out, next week, I believe, to snapping me out of the slump.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Dani

Adding my sympathy also. It's really tough at this time of the year especially. I'm reading Reflected in You by Sylvia Day. I started this awhile ago and stopped and now I'm having trouble getting back into it. After that I'm not sure what I'll read. I can feel a slump coming on.

I have another shower for my future DIL this weekend. Wedding is only 3 weeks away -- I'll be so glad when it's over! I still have to find shoes!

I started reading Monica McCarty's Highland guard series, not too bad but I'm only on the 2nd book.
I'm going to try and stick with it.
Not much going on this weekend, My job is really stressful right now so I was planning on doing absolutly nothing -we'll see how that works out.

Sorry for you loss Dani. My prayers are with you.

Our holiday company is still here. The guys are out hunting and we ladies are just relaxing. I had to go and put Sharyn's mail in the house and it made me miss them even more. They are having a blast in South Carolina, on the beach somewhere near Charleston. Shar says the house her dad rented for Thanksgiving was fantastic. I can't wait for the kids to regale me with their stories of their vacation on the beach during winter.

I just finished Blind Faith by C. J. Lyons. I gave it 4 stars. A whole lot of mystery and drama. My cup of tea.

Not sure what is next... I have a book by Johanson and her son...and a Christmas book by Fannie Flagg. It will be one of the two.
Have a great weekend everyone and happy reading.

Danielle, sorry for your loss. Take Care.

I am reading THE UGLY DUCHESS by Eloise James. I am enjoying it so far. Haven't got to the "after" part of the book yet.

We ate Thanksgiving dinner out this year. We had six of us and Hubby paid. It was great, no stress.But of course, no leftovers. I had made brownies, carrot cake and pumpkin pie. So plenty of sweets for everyone.

Have a good weekend ladies, To those shopping, have fun.

I am reading Nightshade on Elm Street by Kate Collins right now. My girlfriend's mother passed away on Wed. & they are bringing her back to NJ so she can be buried next to her husband so I have the funeral to go to on Tues. Working extra hours at work for the next 2 weeks to make some extra cash for the holidays so not much reading will get done for the next 2 weeks.

I'm sorry for your loss, Danielle.

I went shopping at the mall today with my mom. It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I went in and got what was on my shopping list and got out of there.

Right now I'm reading My Scandalous Viscount by Gaelen Foley. After that, I'll either read Breaking Point by Pamela Clare or Sin With a Scoundrel by Sara Bennett.

Happy reading everyone.

Sorry for your loss, Danielle. I just started "Room" darn! I can't remember the author and I left the book upstairs (and I'm feeling very lazy this snowy afternoon...) But I'm enjoying it so far.

My condolence on your loss, Danielle. It reminds us all on how much we have to be thankful for this season.
((Hugs))

I'm listening on audio "Notorious Nineteen" by J. Evanovich. I really like listening to the story more then reading it. Lorelei King is such a good narrator~ I enjoy all her readings.

So sorry for your loss Dani. Tough one, over the holiday. Big hug Girlfriend!


I am reading the new Lindsay McKenna, The Defender and enjoying it a lot. Haven't had much time over the weekend to read, so hope to get more reading time in this week.

Since it's too cold for DH to play golf, we spent the weekend getting the tree up and all the outside decorations out. You never know, if the weather warms up again he'll be back to the golf course so I must take advantage of having him home!

Everyone have a great week!

It was pretty thin Dani. Not bad, but it's one of those books that you'll need to be prepared to go in KNOWING it's NOT reality based in any way. I will definitely be reading the follow up stories though.

I'm sorry for your loss, Danielle.

We ended up eating out. I certainly missed those wonderful kitchen smells, but I was more than willing to swap that for not having to clean up the mess! :D


I read and enjoyed Astray by Emma Donoghue, The Sins of the Mother by Danielle Steel, and An Outlaw's Christmas by Linda Lael Miller.

Right now, I'm about halfway through Lavender Morning by Jude Deveraux (still working on my TBR resolution!).
