Monday mornings are my early days. In at 6 am (sometimes 5am) to do inventory. I was just saying today that I would be in bed early because GoT was over. Silly me to think that

I know this is going to be a tough book.
Unlike today, social media wasn't around. I was at work in Gwinnett County, GA when my coworker ran in the building screaming that a plane had hit one of the towers. We didn't believe her. So we huddled around a radio because the internet was slow. WSB750AM confirmed ir.

Interesting book on leadership. I was hoping for more information on Abrams herself but she doesn't divulge much.

I don't normally read Christian fiction. Not my thing since I like my books a little bit darker. But this book has sucked me in and I am not even bothered that God is mentioned every page.

I really can't for the life of me figure out why Sims worked for Trump. Sims is an evangelical Christian but excuses his boss's not so Christian behavior. There is nothing earth shattering in this book. Save your money and borrow it from the library or a friend

Reminds me of when my family moved from Norcross, GA to Suwanee, GA. There was 1 grocery store and 4 way stops instead of red lights.
Heck I even remember when Gwinnett Place, Discover Mills, and Mall of Georgia were just woods (or pasture with cows like Gwinnett Place).
But then the county elected a new commissioner who bragged in the paper, Y'all gonna love it when we pave it all over. And he did just that.

Lord yes! Everytime I go home to Atlanta I have to eat at Waffle House and Chick-fil-a. I was super excited this past October when I flew back to Illinois that Chick-fil-a had a restaurant right by my gate.❤❤❤

Was feeling frustrated today. My broken ankle has been kicking like a mule. Have been taking ibuprofen again for the pain. The ladies in my Saturday knitting group reminded me that I broke just over 2 weeks ago and to listen to my body. That I need to slow down, be thankful I am out of the walking boot
And then I picked up this book and have lost myself. This is why i read. I can always count on it helping me through life.

Got great news today. No surgery for my fractured ankle. Unfortunately still can't drive (of course it's my right ankle) and I am still off work. I can do sedentary work but I manage a fast food restaurant and there is no such thing as sedentary work

Tried Bookly for the first time. Not sure if I like it or not.

jpmcwisemorgan I‘m playing with Bookly too. It‘s hard to go back and forth with the timing part but I found out the other day you can manually put it in so I might have to try that. I do like the infographics. 4mo
booklover76 The infographic is cool. The timing thing has me not being sure that I like it. Plus for additional stuff you have to pay 4mo
Elma I've been playing with it for about a month and I'm still not sure what I think. I hate that after ten books you have to start deleting them. But I really like seeing his my reading speed changes from book to book. 4mo

Wow. This was an amazing, wonderfully written book. I was drawn into the story immediately. Lale and Gita's love for each other shines throughout the book. Morris does an excellent job if showing how love and hope can triumph over hate and unimaginable circumstances.

The #polarvortex has arrived in Illinois. Expecting a low of -26 tonight. Lots of places closing: banks, schools, county government, library (gasp!). Grateful I am off tomorrow and have plenty of reading materials. Now hopefully my battery in my car will survive this nonsense.

Apparently this book is a rereleased book from 1992. Hasn't been updated. Heroine has already revealed she is a virgin less than 20 pages in. He body is throbbing from her recent encounter with her love interest, who looks like a "Greek God ". Well I wanted something light to read. Lol
