Without my computer, I have read quite a bit lately! I am not a bit TV watcher! Besides sports (and let's face it, until the tournaments started this week there really hasn't been much on), and my two favorites: Gray's and Private Practice, I rarely even turn the TV on... except for some Saturday morning Food Network. The lack of my computer allowed me to get some reading done and although I missed the computer terribly, I enjoyed catching up on my reading! I finished this book (it was our book group book this month):
This book was phenomenal. I will consider it one of my all time favorites probably for life. A couple of ladies in my book group proclaimed that it was life-changing. It is my firm belief that every woman should read it! It's one of those books that has a different impact depending on the stage of life you are in and therefore I will likely read it again, or maybe even a couple of times. It's a short biography that can be read in just a few days. Must. Read.
After finishing A Year By The Sea, I started this James Patterson book:
I have it on audio and I started it when I left for a little lake trip (more on that in my next post!). I have NEVER been able to successfully complete an audio book. I find my focus wonders when I don't actually have the book in my hand! However, this book has had my full attention (slightly scary since I listen to it while driving, lol). Chris turned me on to James Patterson a few years ago and I love his books. I was on a kick where I read several, but after a while I needed a change. This is the first one I've "read" in a long time and I was reminded of how I love his work! It grabs you from the start and pulls you along! I have even been taking the long way home a lot so I can listen a little bit longer!
It was totally coincidental that both books were set on the east coast on a beach! ...but it did get me ready for this:
In just a matter of days Chris, Lily, and I will join our friends Patrick, Amanda, and their baby Beckett at this lovely beach house on Tybee Island! I have posted on Tybee before as it is one of my favorite places in the world! I have been to Tybee/Savannah many times! As a little girl, a bigger girl, a teenager, a grown up, on girls trips and family trips... I have always loved that place! I am so excited to get to share with Chris and Lily and can't wait to post pictures and tell you all about it!
