A friend of mine is supporting her friend in a 24 book challenge. 24 books in a year is not a challenge for me , or my friend. My friend S has decide that her 24 have to be classics. I am not officially joining, but I thought I’d try to read 24 nonfiction books this year. I’m starting with The Vagina Monologues. Not a long book, really and easy read. But something that I have been curious about.
But to catch up on other books I’ve been reading. First Harlan Coben. I never read any of his books before , but he is an excellent suspense writer. I just finished the Tell No One. Twist, twist, twist with the final twist on the last three pages. I’ve read 4 book so far, and while I expect a twist, I can’t really predict the Twist.
And I’ve read two book by Deborah Grabien. Dark’s Tale, her first kids book , I read with my book club. The kids were thrilled to be reading a book that isn’t out yet and to meet the author. Reading the story of a cat abandoned in Golden Gate Park was interesting and entertaining. And of course, two days before book Club I had to avoid reading what I needed to read ,I read another book by Deb Still Life with Devils . A paranormal serial killer mystery. I really loved it and the end has the pace and the volume of a rock solo.
The plaza has been open, but today was a perfect spring day. My friend R and I took a walk over to it to look around. The model train guys are moving in , the stage is ready, and the benches are comfy. When I drove by this afternoon, there were bunches of people hanging on the benches. Here is a quick shot of the Niles Hills from one of the benches.
This blog does a good rant on women , and how we aren’t willing to say what we know or toot our own horn. And how it hurts us. For me , the most interesting point was because we a re afraid of being judged. and if you are afraid of that — well we can never be the best the top or even known. A point to ponder.
