Happy Friday the 13th Everyone!!!!

Well, we went from temps in the high 90's to the 60's and 70's. Hope everyone enjoyed their week. I had a great time at the booksigning event that Bookreader 7 had at her local library last week.

No big plans this weekend, my friend's son is coming over and we are finally going to try to do something about my book mess. Move a lot of the bins in the garage and figure out exactly what I have in that room. I can't wait to see what hidden treasures I find. It's time for me to finally give up my books....I've been slowing selling them off to a friend but she only reads historical romance and they have to have some spice in them. One of these days I will bring a bin to the library for Bookreader 7 works and donate them.

I had an excellent reading week.....I snagged the ARC of Born Wild by Julie Anne Walker -- loved it and also The Christmas He Loved Her by Juliana Stone really enjoyed this book. Last night I stayed up and finished The Untamed Mackenzie...another good read. Up next....I'm thinking of starting High Risk by Vivian Arend or Bad Nights by Rebecca York.

Any plans this weekend? What are you reading?

Have a good weekend everyone!

Happy weekend all!

I finished reading Deception Cove by Jayne Castle last night. It was a nice, pleasant read. Right now, for this weekend, I'm planning to catch up on those magazines I need to read, and some other reading I need to catch up on. If I get through most of it by Sunday, I may start a new book. I'm thinking about starting the Maya Banks Burn series.

Things are going well at home. I went to the same AlAnon meeting again Wednesday night and I'm still not sure it's the right meeting for me. I plan to attend another at a different place on Tuesday night and see if I feel more comfortable there.

Tomorrow we plan to attend our Aftercare meetings on Saturday morning, then my husband is going to get his 30 day chip at his AA meeting at noon. Then we plan to go home and watch the Texas A&M and Alabama game. WHOOP! Go Aggies!!

Sunday is church then football!! Go Texans!!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Beautiful weather here in middle TN---in the mid 70's. Hubby and I plan on riding our bikes on the Natchez Trace tomorrow. I don't know how far we will get. Today, I plan on doing some yard work.

I am searching for my next book. I am going to go to the library and see if I can find anything interesting or maybe re-read something.

Kyle---that is great! Keep strong. My prayers are with you. ALTHOUGH....Since we are huge Roll Tide fans, we will be cheering on Alabama. Should be a great game.

Eaglegirl I've always wanted to do the Natchez Trace -- but in a car! My brother did part on a bike and said it was lovely but when he did it, hot. Good luck and make sure you wear your helmet!

I'm currently reading Love Overdue by Pamela Morsi and loving it. I'm so happy she's back to writing funny fiction rather than the somber fiction she tried after switching to contemporaries. Her Americana historicals were among my favorites. After that I'm finally going to start Biting Bad by Chloe Neill.

My BIL is moving to Palm Springs so we've got a going away party to go to this weekend. This BIL is kind of an odd duck so I'm not really looking forward to it. I'd much rather be at home enjoying the nice cool weather. Have a great weekend everyone!

Hope you are enjoying whatever weather you're having....Summer, going, going.... :cry:

I can relax a bit this weekend after working so hard on the Author Fair last week, it turned out great, and Danielle was a big help. She can finally forgive me for not giving her my ARC of Born Wild!

I finished the "Best Man" by Kristan Higgins, enjoyed it. She writes longer books, and I prefer to listen to them on audio when I want to relax.

Also, just listened to my first Julie James book,
Something About You. Very good book, I will be reading more books by her. I like her style.

I'm re-reading a favorite by Christina Skye titled Hour of the Rose.

Not much planned for the weekend. I've been working on a crochet order of Angry Birds and I still have a few more to make. Monday evening I will be volunteering for the local orchestra which will be conducted by Keith Emerson of Emerson, Lake and Palmer. He now writes classical music.

Hi all.
Hope to have a nice weekend and wishing the same for you all. I only have to work tomorrow from 7 to 12. It is my 1 Saturday a month. I am sure hoping my old boss finds my replacement soon.... I am really tired at night and feel I am not giving my new job my all. Oh well... we do what we have to do...but my reading is suffering, too. Crap.
I can't believe it has been a week since my friend Mary Grace passed away. I had our van driver take some of my seniors to the funeral home and I couldn't believe how happy I made them. They even stood in line for almost an hour before we got up to the family and had a chance to pay our respect. Not one of them complained. I was so proud of them. Needless to say, I am loving my job and really liking the seniors. What characters!
I am still trying to finish The Last Victim by Karen Robards. I have to get my book club book started...next Sat. is our day. We are scheduled to read Linda Castillo's Sworn to Silence. It really looks good.
Hope you all have a great weekend and get in some good reading.

Geez, it feels like fall here this morning! 48 degrees. Wasn't it just May 2nd and we had 16 inches of snow?!? This summer has not been nearly long enough!

I am about halfway through Lily Everett's Sanctuary Island. Prior to that I finally finished Hotshot by Julie Garwood, and loved that book. I actually got 5 books read in August, which is almost a record for me this year. Too much going on to have a lot of reading time.

My cousin is due in later today from California. I am so looking forward to a visit from him and his wife! I only have 4 cousins and since they are all on the west coast, do not see them often. We are finding as we all get older that very other year is not often enough, so once DH retires I hope we can make winter trips out their way.

Everyone have a great weekend!

Today I'm going to help a friend put together a new entertainment center. I sure hope the directions are well written.

This week I've been reading For the Roses by Julie Garwood. It's 500 pages of very small print, but it's worth reading. I'm really enjoying it.

Linda---the Trace is beautiful. The smell of fall is in the air and it was great riding our bikes---not far on the Trace. Our goal one day is to ride the Trace to the Loveless Café which from our starting point is a little over 35 miles. I can do about 15 miles on hilly, rolling roads and maybe 20 on very flat roads---the Trace is hilly where we are, so we made lots of stops.

Teri-- I really liked Sanctuary Island and can't wait until the next book Shoreline Drive in Jan.

Late again :mrgreen:

I am struggling reading wise, have gotten lost with ebook rec's, and authors that are trying to be like other authors. I don't actually think I have finished a book recently, they tend to loose me halfway through, they start strong, then lapse.

So I am planning on going back to familiar authors for a while, looking forward to receiving my copy of the new JAK!
