So apparently Khai looks sorta like Godfrey Gao. Not knowing who that was I had to Google it. Whoa baby! 😍
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.

Well it's not every day that a presidential candidate mentions the two towns on either side of your town in his book. 🙂
Really looking forward to this book! Mayor Pete has my vote already but I definitely want to learn more about him.
Interesting book on leadership. I was hoping for more information on Abrams herself but she doesn't divulge much.
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
So this happened! Wow!!!!
The last few sentences of that paragraph pretty much sums up the last 2 years
🍀Staying off my fractured ankle and probably diving into Season 4 of GoT (gotta get ready for 4/14)
🍀 I outran a tornado once on I-80 on my morning commute

🍀I can't pick one figure. I have a degree in history. That's like having to pick one favorite book.
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.
Awww. My sister and her family sent me flowers to wish me a speedy recovery. ❤❤❤
Tried Bookly for the first time. Not sure if I like it or not.
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.
My New Year's Resolution is to write more reviews. I have been a terrible reviewer this year. It has been almost a year since I posted one.
Anyone else have a book related resolution?

Funny. All the years he has been in the public eye and I have never heard his full name until now.
Wow!!!! Pat Buchanan in 1992 . Sounds just like Trump
1. Dressing (Southern style) and pumpkin pie. It's a tie
3. Met lots of authors but the most famous person I have met is President Barack Obama. Met him when he was my Senator at a town hall meeting
4. I am having a terrible reading year. Can't seem to finish anything
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
Did a double take when I saw progressive and Republican in the same sentence. Then I remembered what year the author is currently covering. 😂
Wow. This was in 2008. Years before Trump
