Library Loot, my TBR Pile and what's outside my kitchen window
....the library calls and tells me that I have an overdue book and I can't renew it because it is on a waiting list. Can I please bring it in?
(I'm on the library board, so it's kind of embarrassing)
So I say, Of course I can bring it in. After I read it! So, it moves to the top of my TBR list.
I'm LOVING this book. It's a book of essays from her column, or inspired by her column, in the Philadelphia Inquirer, "Chick Wit". I can identify with so many things she is talking about, such as squeezing myself into Spanx and noticing things have been pushed up and moved around to where it's just not natural and The first clue that she had forgotten her bra was the running. ( Seriously, running without a bra is dangerous. I can attest to that, having almost knocked myself out one time. )
But my favorite so far...I'm only on page 44....is that "A movie theater is the Switzerland of the diet world" and "all movie candy has one portion size: 2 hours".
I love the movies. I love going to the movies. I love having popcorn and raisinettes at the movies, or milkduds (sometimes Good and Plentys or Red Vines), and now I am so glad to know that "A movie theater is the Switzerland of the diet world". (sigh)
I love Lisa Scottoline.
So, for my Library Loot this week, I'm going to go with "Why My Third Husband Will Be a Dog". I "re" looted.
Okay, I did check out two more this week.
One is "Saints Preserve us" Everything you need to know about every Saint you'll ever need, by Sean Kelly and Rosemary Rogers. ( I saw it on CBS's Sunday Morning, and it looked interesting )
and the other one is "One Mississippi" by Mark Childress.
because it is compared to Pat Conroy's writing as well as a couple other great southern writers.
