What to do on Saturday?

     I love to read! I particularly love historical romance novels. I love Johanna Linsdey, Jude Deveraux, Paula Quinn, and Julie Garwood just to name a few. I'm forever reading a new book! What else is a girl to do while her entire (male) clan hogs the tv with hunting, sports, CSI, NCIS, etc.?? Well, I also have a laptop and plenty of my favorite wine at the ready. These things enable me to "hang out" with them without actually becoming on of them! You know men smell funny, right? I DO NOT want to become one!!

      My current read, or reads I should say, is the Diana Gabaldon Outlander series.  I am on book number 6 with just over 100 pages to go!  I probably started them a good year ago and have taken time in between to rest up!  Oh my, the adventures of these people!! I need vacations and plenty of naps between the books.  I swear they literally exhaust you!  BUT, they are so, so very good!  I once tried to convince my husband to speak to me with a Scottish burr, but he's from the south and that just really didn't work out well!  The stories do start out with a wonderful love story and they continue through many, many years and several historical events as well. 

     This morning, I am determined to finish up this particular book (it's the silver one) and then I'm going to take the kids of a fun journey to Choreville.  They love that place!  Okay not really, but you have to go through it to get to VideoGameington.  See how the mean mommies do it??

     So.............are you a reader?  What are your favorite genres and what are you reading now?  I've only got the one book left in my series, so I'm looking for a few good reads!  Share your favorite books and let me know if you've read any of the Outlander series.  Can't wait to hear from you!


  1. I am a reader for sure!! I go through phases where I will get hooked on a certain genre for a while and then I will move to a different one. One of my favorite books is The Book Thief.

  2. Elizabeth, I looked for info on that book, The Book Theif. Sounds really good! I'll have to grab it for my Nook and put it on the front page to read soon.

    Will you do me a favor, and let me know if you see this comment? I'm wondering how exactly to comment to be sure that who I'm responding to knows that I did indeed respond. Do you get a notice?? Of course, if I don't hear from you, I'll know you weren't notified and I'll be sure to post directly to you.

    By the way......LOVE the red cape!!
