Looking for a New Book

I'm an avid reader, especially while I'm working. If there is some down time at work, I like to park the good ole' van at a local park, and just sit and read. The only downside is, people always want to ask me stupid questions.

I usually have a stockpile of books to read. I get coupons from Border's Rewards, and buy several at a time. I also pick them up at Costco and Target. Well, I just finished my last one. I probably don't have a stockpile because I'm trying to stay away from places like Target and Costco. Don't get me wrong. I love my stores, but I'm trying to be a little more frugal.

The book that I just finished was One Fifth Avenue by Candace Bushnell. Bushnell also wrote Sex in the City. I bought the hardcover version of it (EXPENSIVE), but the soft cover version comes out on March 31. It was a decent book. Definately my style.

I'm looking for some ideas of other books to read. Have you read anything good lately? I refuse to read any True Crime books, and/or Twilight (haven't jumped on that bandwagon).

I know that there are people out there who actually read books still, right? I read my share of blogs daily. But I also read at least one book a week.

Oh and by the way, I'm trying to organize my life better this year. I'm giving away this book, One Fifth Avenue. Be sure and post if you want to receive my copy, and I will select someone at the end of the week. I swear it's in almost perfect condition. Well, I might have spilled some salsa on it, I do eat Mexican food for lunch alot.


  1. Here are some books on my want to read list

    Not tonght honey, wait till I am a size 6

    Confessions of a slacker wife


    Were just like you only prettier.

    Somebody is going to die if Lilly Beth doesn't catch the bouquet.

    Don't sleep with Bubba unless your eggs are in wheelchairs.

    I need to finish the Twilight series before I can read these thought. I have a book and a half left till I am done. You would probably like Twilight though :)

  2. THanks Amy,

    I think I have Prep at home. cough cough....I would give it to you if you ever met up with me!!

  3. Oh just jump on the Twilight band wagon with the rest of it... LOVE IT..
    Do you read Jane Green? Sophia Kinsella? They are my favs... best book ever by Kinsella "Can you Keep a Secret"

  4. Have you read Lipstick Jungle, yet? I really liked it a lot. I wasn't so much into 4 Blondes (which has some of the same characters), but LJ was good.

    I also like Kinsella as someone above mentioned.

  5. Well I'm reading Twilight right now so I'm no help on choices. Though I'd love to get the book you read! :o)

  6. Twilight isn't so bad.

    I just read the Beach House and the Lake House by James Patterson. (I believe he also writes the Women's Murder Club series.) It's about kids who are genetically engineered to fly.

    I read a lot of crime stories, or horror.

  7. I'd love to read that - pick me!

    Book suggestions: Anything by Chris Bohjalian (especially Double Bind!); Anita Shreve, Jodie Picoult or Erin Hilderbrand.

  8. Pick me!!!! I too am looking for something to read. Something fun and sassy because I just finished reading the shack!
    Have you read:
    The red tent?
    The astronauts wife?
    any of the emily griffin books?

  9. Check out Chasing Harry Winston. If you liked Bushnell's and Kinsella's, you'll love this.
