Hi Anne,

I actually thought of you when reading this book.... here is the order of her serie'es- Julia's Hope; Emma's Gift; Katie's Dream; then the Christmas novella... When Morning Is Neigh. The second series takes place in the fall 1938 is Rorey's Secret; Rachel's Prayer and then the last book in the Wortham series'es is Sarah's Promise. I am going to order them from the library sometime today or at least the first one "Julia's Hope".
Does anyone think I should splurge and BUY the DVD The Best Exotic, etc. from Amazon? It is on sale at 10.00 something but I could wait for my rental.
Thanks

Lainey, thanks for the recommendation...I'll certainly check them out....

I've been perusing my "to be read" file in the Kindle app on the 'puter and putting them into my collections...A few I'll read a bit to see how they'll fit with my reading, and a few I'll just throw into the collection folder...most are the cookbooks and mysteries, books I know I'll get to eventually. A few I'll check more thoroughly.

One I just finished was How To Eat Less - By Duncan Ferguson Copyright: Duncan Ferguson Published: 17.05.12 Publisher: SR Publishing. This was a recent freebie on the Kindle and is a short e-book on motivating yourself to lose weight. Very interesting in that it used some of the motivational leadership training that we use in the office and the Army. I hadn't thought to use that training in this way.

It makes sense, however, when you think that we have those tools from the workplace and just because we retired can forget them. Of course, one of the suggestions is the food journal which I'm doing as a part of my weight loss, but by going into a little more depth such as how I felt when I ate whatever may make a difference in how I understand why I ate it. Another one is setting goals with the SMART method...S=Specific, M=Measurable, A=Achievable R=Realistic T=Time based.

The last one I'll mention is setting a mission statement. I know about and have set goals but never thought of creating a mission statement about such a simple thing as losing weight. But it is occupying a lot of my mental process so it makes sense.

Still reading the Leptin Diet and learning more about the hormones that have an effect on how and what we eat...very interesting.

Oy, I know....TMI. anyway also reading another paranormal fiction by H.P. Mallory, To Kill a Warlock...I like her writing style so whenever I see a new one, I'll pick it up.....

Today's Kindle Deal

is Michael J. Fox's book, Lucky Man...

"In September 1998, Michael J. Fox stunned the world by announcing he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease -- a degenerative neurological condition. In fact, he had been secretly fighting it for seven years. The worldwide response was staggering. Fortunately, he had accepted the diagnosis and by the time the public started grieving for him, he had stopped grieving for himself. Now, with the same passion, humor, and energy that Fox has invested in his dozens of performances over the last 18 years, he tells the story of his life, his career, and his campaign to find a cure for Parkinson's."

In case you're not familiar with it Amazon offers a discount daily on a Kindle Book...today's book, Lucky Man, is $1.99 and you can pick it up on the site. I've heard him talk about it on some of the talk shows not too long ago and it really looks interesting...

I am reading "Call the Midwife" by Jennifer Worth

Lainey, the movie Exotic Marigold Hotel is hilarious but I think you can wait for the rental, unless you like to watch movies over and over again.

Anne, Lainey, The BBC TV series is coming to PBS next month.

Experience a moving and intimate story of midwifery in London's East End in the 1950s. Call the Midwife will premiere September 30, 2012 at 8pm ET.

Hi Susan, thanks I will wait- been on the waiting list for since if first came out and just found out that the release to rental is Sept.18th
Used to admit women in late stage labor to the hospital and had to ask them what their husband's Mothers maiden name was.... I am lucky to be alive today. I will pass on the listening to labor sounds. By the way my vow of NOT screaming "LORD HAVE MERCY ON MY SOUL, MY SOUL was broken way sooner than any of theirs was. Second baby was civilized.
I want that little doggie- what in the world is that little darling?
I am slowly or rather quickly actually going through the Mary Higgins Clark's books. There is a fat lot of them and I must say they do move right along. Is she still alive? Anyone know?

Since I loved the Downton Abbey tv series on pbs, I found "To Marry An English Lord" on Kindle. About English gentlemen who looked to marry rich American heiresses around the turn of the century to bring wealth back to their English estates. Since it was bad form for these men to actually work and their big English houses were money pits a cash incentive from an heiress was essential. And American mothers wanted their daughters to have the title ... very interesting book.

As I posted on the daily thread, it's been a movie and book weekend...watched a few good movies and read a really great book...Michael J. Fox's Lucky Man. It is really well written an covers his early years in "the business" of entertainment industry. It is particularly poignant when he writes of his wife and children and the effect of his Parkinson Disease on him and his family...he doesn't hold any punches and truly explains early onset PD. I was particularly surprised at his writing style and language....pretty exceptional for a high-school dropout...I really give it five stars for content, editing, and style.

Picked up a couple of freebie Kindle books on Facebook...how to's...as I'm not familiar with it at all and it seems as tho' the whole world is going that way. Also picked up a freebie recipe book for Japanese Bento boxes...some really good simple Japanese recipes that bring back some great memories.

I just started Settled in the Wild: Notes from the Edge of Town by Susan Hand Shetterly. I'm enjoying her story about her life of living in the country and having to adjust to the harder way to live from easy living in town.

Just finished a couple of Amy Stewart's books that I really liked. The first one was From the Ground Up: The story of a first garden. The other one was The Earth Moved: On the remarkable achievements of Earthworms. I've just started reading now by Mary Sharratt, Daughters of the Witching Hill.

Don't tell anybody but now I"m a worm farmer....

Evonivich "Plum" series books...

Plum Livin and Plum Lucky are a hoot! laughing out lound in bed all be myself.
Reading now- Mary Higgins Clark- Two Little Girls in Blue but I swonny I think I have read it befor but do not for the life of me remember the ending so I am sticking with the thing. Any of y'all ever done that?
The Library is fetching to my branch a lot of the Leisha Kelly books. "Emma's Gift" turned me on to them. Very, very sweet book that I would have bet the farm was southen but in fact is like central U.S. or somewhere like that. My hair lady just gave me a shopping bag full of the Nicolas Sparks books. I am SET for books for a long time to come and of course I will read the library batches first so I can return them.

Found another "escapist" author I like and have actually bought three books in the series...the are the Elementary Mysteries Series by Elizabeth Hunter. The first one A Hidden Fire was one of the Kindle Freebies but her writing is so good I bought the other three....Vampires. Magic, and the innocent young woman caught up in the whole other-than-normal world....right up my alley...

I like series books. These were all from the ereader site and they were free. I get the Ereader News Today newsletter and the ones I choose are put right on my Kindle. A lot of free books on there.
