I just picked up a James Herriot book that I've read before. If you like animals, it's a fun, easy read. He was a country vet in England back in the 60's. Try All Things Bright and Beautiful or All Things Wise and Wonderful.

agree :
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

Also check out ' A walk in the Woods - by Bill Bryson , it will more then likely be in the travel secion of the bookstore... all of his are hilarious but Walk is my favorite

I'm with New Attitude and mellowmood--didn't think "Curious Incident" light at all. Just a small t/j, after husband read it, he asked his therapist if he could have some type of Asberger's!

i'm with mellowmood on the curious incident. i liked it, it was pleasant but not particularly funny or light.

"are you there vodka, it's me, chelsea" - chelsea handler. non-fiction, but it was a hilarious girrrl read.

Any of the Jen Lancaster books... she wrote "Bitter is the New Black", "Pretty in Plaid", "Bright Lights, Big Ass", "My Fair Lazy." They are memoir type books of her fall from grace after losing her high paying job, having no $, but lots of prada bags. She is a riot and her books are laugh out loud funny.

I also second Jennifer Weiner, I love her books too.


me- BW 40 widowed 12/6/12
him- WH 42
kids- 8,10
D-day 11/26/12 when WH was in a bad accident. He never fully regained consciousness and died 12/6/12.
Prior Dday in 2008, different OWs. Probably more I'm not aware of and will never know.

The Bridget Jones books are wonderful.

I also enjoyed "A Girl Named Zippy" and the sequel "She Got Up Off the Couch".

"Hypocrite in a Pouffy White Dress" was also very funny.


She packed up her potential and all she had learned and headed out to change a few things.

Sarah Addison Allen's books are light and "magical"


Old Timer, Just here to help
My screen name is: Am I The Ow? - Not Ami the OW.

Because in my situation I didn't know if I was the OW at first or if I was being cheated on. Found I was being cheated on.
