1. Unwind from work (conference presenting)
2. Go for a run
3. Read some contracts for work
5. Eat a sensible dinner and engage in some hubby and me time
Well, we know how those 5 point plans. Let's just say it turned into a 1 point plan...sacking out on the couch and watching the future of our country go down the tubes. Yikes.
Nonetheless, I bounced back today, got a crap ton of work done, did that run, and pulled out my binder of
Because why woldn't you want to climb into someone else's life for a day? hear, hear. Commence the periodic meeting of the TFB book club...otherwise known as....what have I been reading lately (and by lately, I literally mean at 2am. Not kidding on the stress thing). So, here's the new 5 point plan. Much like a political plan, it contains 80% fiction.
4. "Where we Belong" by Emily Griffith. One step above Danielle Steel and one step below Jodi Picoult in terms of content, I turn to Emily Griffin when I want some substance but don't want to throw the book across the room at the ending (Picoult). This story dealt with the age old teen pregnancy issue-but in a slightly different way. The teen mother gave the child up for adoption..but never told anyone that she was even pregnant, aside from her mom. So the Father had no clue. And, of course, the kid shows up on their 18th birthday to find her birth parents.....fill in the blanks. The book was pretty predictable, but well written and had good character articulation.
5. "Killing Kennedy" by Bill O'Reilly. I'm actually in the middle of this one now, so full review upcoming. I as a big fan of "Killing Lincoln" and this book seems to follow suit. I think there is a bit less mystery about the Kennedy assassination (most of the adult world was around for it, wheres no one still alive now was around for Lincoln) and with King's 11/22/63, alot of the history has been recently discussed. However, O'Reilly has a great voice and I'm a sucker for historically based books. Doesn't take much.
So there's my 5 point plan. Fully explained. Take that, politicians :-P
Read anything good lately? What should I pick up next?
