I noticed your message from 3 years ago asking for recommmenadtions for funny books so I am attaching a review foor your consideration. The book is called A Recipe for Disaster but it's not a cookery book.
I fully recommend this book. I really warmed to Joe the protagonist he is a person I have met many times and I've usually enjoyed his company. He has real down to earth qualities. Sometimes he's his own worst enemy, when he goes out of his way to complicate his life. John Henry portrays Life in Ireland in the 60s, married life, office camaraderie and life in general very realistically. I laughed out loud lots of times, but there is some poignancy in this tale too. Be prepared to enjoy.
I must admit to being biiased as I'm the author but if you go to Amazon you can read some of it free and judge for yourself.
Judy, I think your kitty is cute too. Here are some mystery authors you should like. Faye Kellerman, Jonathan Kellerman,Kathy Reiches, Patricia Cornwell, Sue Grafton, Linda Fairstein, Catherine Coulter FBI series, James Patterson's Women Murder club, Tami Hoag.
Counted cross stitch is not to hard. You just have to find the center of the pattern and the center of the fabric. When I start, I put masking tape around the edges of my fabric, then find the center of the pattern and get the floss is need for that symbol, then find the center of the fabric. I put my fabric on a scroll frame and start stitch. There are some great books out there that can help and check out the internet. There are sites that have tutorials that teach you how to do counted cross stich. I started doing it over ten years ago. I never really stitch much but for some embroidery and pick it up pretty quickly.
i am okay how is your leg doing? i haven't read Irresistible yet and actually alotof the books you sent me wuestions about i haven't read yet so i am only answering the ones i have read and i dont own the book so i can't let anybody borrow it sorry - Angela
Hi! What are you reading lately? I'm back at work after Christmas holiday and have a huge pile of TBR books, but can't seem to get into any of them. Feel vaguely guilty about that =:) Is the picture of your pet cat? I have 2 cats.
I've never read Bet Me.
Thanks for the advice! I've been making honey lemon tea and a Korean orange tea called Yujacha (not sure if I spelled that word correctly). Some of the groups you belong to look interesting. Which one's your favorite?
I order many of my books from the library through the interlibrary loan service. We live in a small town with no used bookstore even in the nearest city. We've moved several times, so I try to only buy re-readers or books I really enjoyed. What about you?
After Christmas I will look through my bookcase and see if there is anything you might be interested in. I will let you know what I have. I did read "All She Ever Wanted" many years ago and I don't have the book anymore. I also read "Lethal Intent" a few years back and that was a good one too. Infact that club I belong to, well that was one of the first books someone requested from me! I saw the movie "Boys Don't Cry" and I agree, Hillary Swank did a great job. Many of the books on my "shelf" I have already read and mostly are gone because of that book club. Carolyn
As I said before, alot of my books are already gone. I have been reading TC for over 20 years! But let me know which ones you are interested in and I will see if I still have it. "A Venom in the Blood" was good - I read that one nearly 20 years ago. That one is long gone. I thought "Lethal" was very good and I enjoyed "Monster" I dragged my husband to see it, he had no idea what it was going to be about. LOL...that was fun. Charlize did a great job. I hate to say this because she was a murderer but I kind of felt sorry for Eileen Wuornos. I think she had it tough from a very young age. I was updating my shelf last week, and I couldn't remember the book! then I saw your shelf and there it was! Merry Christmas! Carolyn
ill see what i can do about sending it to ya right now its pretty crazy here my oldest daughter is sick shes got an infection in her chest and sinus blockage , and my youngest is congested ..so both sick kids and im wore out lol and got to get ready for xmas ..roxie is good growing fast and big, how are u doing?? wats new? take care happy holidays!
Judy, Counted cross stitch is not too hard too learn. You just find the center of the fabric and the center of the pattern and start stitching. I usually sort the floss first, then thread my needle once I know what floss color I must start with. Then start and put it on a scroll frame and stitch. I have been doing it for years.
I recommend Sue Grafton, Patricia Cornwell, Linda Fairstein, Catherine Coulter's FBI series and Kathy Reiches. Those should keep you busy for a while. I have read more of their books. In fact I am reading the new Cornwell. Tom Clancy is good and James Patterson's Woman Murder Club ones are also good.
Hope this helps.
I love my Callie. She is will be 18 months old of the 24th.
Judy, Sorry about your kittie. I am glad that you have more furbabies. I love my Callie. I live in Somerset, PA. I am about ten miles from Flight 93 crash site. I work at our town library part time as a library aide. I love it. I love to read. I also love to do counted cross stitch. I have a brother, sister-in-law and a niece, nephew with their families. I have two great nieces and a great nephew. I am an Air Force veteran. I am also a CNA but have not done that for a while.
Do write when you can.
I love to talk about books.
Thanks for accepting as friends. Love your cat....he/she looks just exactly like my Tom from that picture. Tom is my favorite....I guess I spoil him the most!!! But I love the others too!!! Each has a different personality and wants somethig different from me.
How do you read so many books at once? I've read several you are reading....I think you'll enjoy Dewey! It's better than what I thought it wold be. And I really like Mary Higgins Clark!
Enjoy the Holidays!!!
