Hi Everyone!

Hope everyone had a good week!

No plans this weekend...I'm thinking of cleaning maybe cleaning out the closet in the spare bedroom! Other than that just running errands, reading and watching football.

I had a good week reading...I read the new Maggie Robinson book -- In The Heart of the Highlander -- enjoyable read and Back In Serice by Isabel Sharpe - another good read. Last night I finished reading Duke of Midnight by Elizabeth Hoyt -- I have to admit I did not like this one as much as the other books in this series. Up next another new to me author -- Targeted by Katie Reus.

Any plans this weekend? What are you reading?

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

I'm reading a really good book: Going Once by Sharon Sala. I'll probably finish it and after that I have no idea. Maybe nothing because I have to start painting (but I don't want to -- I hate painting). I'd like to hire someone but greed gets in the way. If I paint it myself, that money can be used for something I want.

I haven't read a review but I'd kind of like to go see Carrie -- unless it stinks!

I just finished reading Maire Claremont's book Lady in Red which is her second book in this series. Now I am going to start reading the first book The Dark Lady. Very good book.

Tomorrow, hubby and I are going to the Vanderbilt/Georgia game because our son will be honored at half-time and receive his SEC championship ring for playing baseball.

Great weekend to everyone!

Danielle, have you ever noticed that this post gets over 5000 views but so little posts. I wish more people would come out to play!

I'm not going to be doing much reading this weekend. Time for some more house organizing and cleaning. I want to have a garage sale Nov 1-3, so I've got a lot of things to do to get ready for it.

Happy Weekend everyone!

I had a fall at home a few weeks ago and injured my foot in a bad way. I'm rolling around on a knee walker. It's not healing well so I have to see a specialist Monday.

I did get a chance to read Adrienne Giordano's The Chase. Its a novella about an attorney and police officer working to stop a designer bag knock-off ring. It was an enjoyable quick read.

I have so many books on my TBR don't know what I'll pick up. :?

I'm shy. :wink: :wink:
Not.... or maybe...

I just enjoy reading all the comments from everyone. Usually talking to myself saying yeah... me too! (now that doesn't sound good for me-huh?) Talking to self... lol

If I start to type what I'm going to be doing for the weekend I could either bore you folks to death or go on for days with my blabbing.

I hope to be reading Sandra Browns "Deadline" that I just got from my library or Kelley Armstrong's "Thirteen" her finale to the Otherworld series.

My heart is with sister Kyle right now as she goes through some
family heartache. Praying for you GF. Take Care. ((HUGS))

Some of those numbers look really high. This post averages several hundered but 5,000? I wonder if there is a techy glitch. One post shows over 10,000. Makes you go Hmmm. :wink:

Congratulations on a terrific achievement for your son. I know it's not easy to even make regionals let alone winning the division. That's so awesome!
Do you know if the football game is being televised? Georgia's games usually are...
Have a nice time! Smile big for the cameras.

Hello everyone.
I just finished Doctor Sleep,Stephen King's new book and I loved it.
Earlier this week I read Still Life by Louise Penny, a mystery set in a small villlage near Montreal. It's the first in a series featuring Chief Inspector Gamache. i also loved this, too.
I've been reading the children's series- The Magic Treehouse- and having great fun. I plan to read several more over the next week ( and return them to the library.)
I have the new Wendy Corsi Staub mystery- The Good Sister-might start that.
Actually -I want to read a Harl, Medical Romance- that's my first choice.

Danielle and Cigi----We are very proud of him. This is his 2nd SEC championship ring and the second time he, along with the baseball team will be honored. I know that the game will be televised on CBS at 11 am. I hope that they show it during halftime...so many times they go to commercial during halftime. I am going to see if I can get someone to record it...I don't have a DVD recorder and I don't know how. There will be lots of smiles and cameras going off...he will be the tall blonde kid!

I also have a heavy heart for kyle. Sending prayers and lots of hugs her way.

[color=#008080]I'm currently reading "Never Go Back" by Lee Childs. A huge Jack Reacher fan so of course I'm enjoying this one.

I don't post too much in the summer because it is always a busy time around here. Also, this year I've been through some reading slumps and many weeks it has been a struggle to get interested in books. Then, too, my computer skills aren't the best so if I have a glitch I just log out.

I read "Deadline" last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. Linda, I hope you enjoy it as well. I thought it was one of her best books published recently.

Although I'm not privy to Kyle's current situation, I will send prayers her way. She certainly has had some difficult issues to deal with the year. She appears to be a strong woman and I'm sure that serves her well.

EAGLEGIRL47, congratulations to your son - proud moment for your son and your family.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Quiet weekend. No plans except to take my brother out for his birthday dinner.

Last night I finished Die for Me by Karen Rose. Scary book. In the car I finished listening to Pretend You Don't See Her by Mary Higgins Clark. Interesting story but the heroine was TSTL. Now I'm starting Redwood Bend by Robyn Carr.

It's been a doozy of a week at work and I'm so glad for the weekend. We had a family bonfire last night which was enjoyable. It was down in the 30s but dad had a nice fire going so it was comfortably warm! Having family breakfast while my sister, her husband, and my 7 year old nephew are still in town and then a visit with my mom. After that straight reading and cleaning for the rest of the weekend.

This week I finished Too Good to be True by Kristan Higgins. 5 out of 5 star! She is a fantastic contemporary romance author. Her stories always contain pets, usually dogs. I also read James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl. 3 1/2 out of 5. I'm trying to read Dahl's backlist as I missed out on it as a child.

I'm currently reading Three Nights with a Scoundrel by Tessa Dare. It is the third i(and last) in her Stud Club trilogy. I have loved all of the books I have read by her. When I finish that one, I'll pick up Justice at Cardwell Ranch by B.J. Daniels which I borrowed from my library.

It's a winter weather temperature weekend in IL this weekend so crockpots, blankets, and books, are definitely in order!

I started a post and can't find it now... hate this part of getting old!!! It is probably flying around in cyber space and will show up here later, unfinished.
I was saying my Congratulations to Eaglegirl on her son's fantastic accomplishment. I will try to tune in for the game. I would be such a proud momma, too!!!
Booksreader7, keeping my fingers crossed and saying prayers that your visit to the specialist goes well.
My heart goes out to Kylebemac during this time, sending prayers and hugs, we are here for you always.

Glad to see this week come to an end. I am helping out at my old job again because the girl who took my place, quit. Well, she quit before she got fired. Getting up at 4:15 am. is pretty hard for some people. Now, I am doing that again on Tuesday and Wednesday, then going on to my new job until around 3. It is wearing me out. I hate to admit it, but, by 3 I am ready for my nap. I reached out to another girl to see if she wanted the hours, keep your fingers crossed she wants the extra hours...I am waiting for her call.

I am going to a party tonight for a friend of mine from the "Y". He is celebrating 25 years being a double lung transplant survivor! He also has a kidney transplant. We are honoring him because he is doing so well, comes to the gym twice a day to keep his oxygen levels at a good high.

I have started Karen Slaughter's book "Unseen" again. I really love Will Trent and am hating seeing Lena come back and cause more problems. She is the kind of person who will never be happy unless she lets go of the past and tries to become a happier human being. I tried to start this book a couple of times and am determined it is not going back to the library until I finish it this time.

Other than that, just laying about relaxing and getting ready for next week.
Have a good weekend and happy reading.
