Morelia, I didn't know Thomas Kincaid was a writer either!

he's wonderful... I actually read my first book by him because I was seeking out Christmas novels. The Cape Light series is really good!

I am getting ready to start a book called Things Left Unspoken, by Eva Marie Everson. It is a mystery, I think.
Perfect day for curling up with a book. Happy reading!

Bumping UP! I can't believe it's been so long since we've chatted on this thread.

I am reading a marketing book, just because it looked interesting! It's called BRAND SENSE by Martin Lindstrom. Basically it talks about what companies do to try to attract us to buy the stuff they sell.

My daughter upgraded her ipod and lucky me I got the hand me down. I love it as I can check out audio books thru the library, download them and then transfer them to my ipod. My normal Saturday routine now consists of downloading a book and putting in the earbuds of my ipod while I do my house cleaning. Great way to do housework!!!<o:p></o:p>

I am reading, War, by Sebastian Junger, which is about the war in Afghanistan. Good book, very interesting to get first hand knowledge of what our troops go through.
