Books and Reading and Discovery

Return to Rose Cottage, the book that I told you I was going to read in spite of the great difficulty I had reading the first 2 installments in the series... I bailed.  I started it.  But I didn't even care enough to skip to the end and read that.  It was just not for me and I couldn't do it.  After all, it's not like I had to read it for school. 

On the subject of reading for school, my sci-fi, adventure loving boy has to read The Help for school and Kite Runner.  So, I will also be picking those up and reading them to empathize with Teen Boy as he struggles through deep South lingo like Law (Lord).  Yes, that made me laugh when he recounted his difficulty in figuring it out.  So I am headed into that to support him.  Just as soon as I finish the romance novel I am reading. 

So what have I been reading if not Return to Rose Cottage?  Well, I read Wife for Hire and The Naughty Neighbor, both by Evanovich.  I have 3 more of her romances on my Nook and then I think I am done with those and will be moving back to the Stephanie Plum series.  I also read The Unexpected Husband by Debbie Macomber.  It is a 2-1 book, with 2 of her older stories, updated and reprinted.  Lovely, really enjoyable.  So, those of you keeping count... I've now read 33 books!

Let me ask you, EVERYONE seems to be talking about 50 Shades of Grey/Gray.  Have you read it?  Will you read it?  Advice?  Opinions?  I am waiting for it from the library... 

UPDATE:  Found this little nugget. (link below)  Interesting thing is I learned about this book at my Catholic Moms Night Out.  I cannot wait to bring it up next time we meet and see where everyone ended up.  Did they read or not?


  1. How old is your adventure loving boy? If I remember Kite Runner had a boy rape scene in it.
