Wantmore, I also hate negativity, but I don't believe being positive changes anything, which is what she addresses. I do believe there is more pleasantness in the world when we smile, but I sure don't believe a woman's breast cancer is going to diminish because the woman smiles.

Glad you started this thread Cant.


The life of every man is a diary in which he means to write one story, and writes another; and his humblest hour is when he compares the volume as it is with what he vowed to make it.

Just finished re-reading Pat Conroy's MY LOSING SEASON, what a great, great book. I read it when it first came out in 2002 I believe, and the basketball parts appealed at the time, having just recently been given my "walking papers" from the sport, but this time the negative family impact and the learning to mine his true personality out from the layers of defenses from his fears and insecurities, really resonated with me.

Last weekend finished an excellent meditation on life, nature, and our relationship with the other species on earth THE HIDDEN LIFE OF DEER. An excellent quick read! And continue to wade my way through Wally Lamb's THE HOUR I FIRST BELIEVED on audio book (very wordy and seemingly directionless- don't recommend it) as well as Jane Goodall's biography. (highly recommended!)

Exactly. ITA.

And I hate being told it's my fault XYZ happened because I was "negative" about it. My XH pulled this card out all the time. Blech.

Just started re-reading "The Eagle and the Raven" last night. Celtic/Roman historical fiction. Love this book. The last two times I read it, I was pregnant with two different monkeys and got something different out of it each time. Maybe non-pregnant, I'll find something new.

I just finished Marked by PC Cast... vampire book. And one by Sarah Dessen, cant remember the title, but I liked it. My DD and I read together and discuss the books. so those were hers. I read very quickly, have a dozen books going at any one time, usually finish 3-4 a week. Am reading the Screwtape Letters (again)- CS Lewis, Punk Marketing, Mastering the Art of French Cooking- Julia Child, The Gathering Storm (just finished it)- Robert Jordan/B. Sanderson, Love and War - John and Stasi Eldredge..I think that's all? for now?

saw someone reading "A Handmaid's Tale" by Atwood. I liked the book, very thought-provoking. Reminiscent of Aldous Huxley for me.

can't- highly recommend Jennifer Crusie to you, if you have never read her start with Faking It.

Just finished reading The Last Day of My Life by Jim Moret.

I really enjoyed this inspirational book. Jim Moret is a journalist that contemplated suicide one day. He turned his life around by finding answers to the question, What would I do if I only had 24 hours left to live?

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer, and Annie Barrows

I ma loving this book. It is set just after WW2 and is series of letters from Islanders (Guernsey was occupied by the Nazis) to an author in London.

It is one of those books that makes me want to read more about the island and it's people during that time.

I am currently slogging my way through a series of police procedure books by Ian Rankin, whose main protagonist is DI John Rebus. It is set in Edinburgh, Scotland and I say slogging because although I read a far amount of English fare, and so have much of the slang down, Scottish slang is very different!!! I have had to stop and google a phrase here and there...I can't even make sense of it within the sentence. But I now know what Irn-Bru is!!
Other than that the writing is excellent, much more intense and denser than the usual who-dun-its. 3 more books to go and I can move on to other authors!!!

Don Quixote. I believe in torture by literature.

@ mmhurts.


Finished The Book of Ruth by Jane Hamilton (very well written).

Now I'm reading Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann. It was voted one of 2009's best books on Amazon, but I'm not loving it.
