The month of May and my unending lists

     I had no idea how busy May was until I was looking at my blog and realized I only have 2 posts for this month! I haven't read much either! So I'm not going to do a book review but talk about the notebook I carry in my purse.
     I carry a small spiral notebook. The kind you can get at any discount store. I keep my notes in it! I seem to forget many things - so I try to remember to jot them in my notebook. I have a grocery list, a prayer list, when I listen to books on CD and hear something I want to remember I pull over write it in my notebook, so I also have a list of quotes. I have a list of books I want to blog about and a list of books I want to read. When someone suggests a book to me, I write it in this notebook. There is a list of blogs I want to check out, a list of pictures to take of relatives tombstones at the cemetery - because Randy has been doing my genealogy - this is so interesting. A list of products Heather uses that I can get for her at  State Beauty Supply and a list of all the things I need to do to my house! - Well, anyway, you get the idea!
     Here is a list of some of the books that have been suggested to me and are listed in my notebook:
               "Three Little Words" by Ashley Rhodes-Courter
               "Why My 3rd Husband Will be a Dog" by Lisa Scottoline
               "The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood
               "The Things They Carried" by Tim OBrian
               "The Sweet By and By" by Todd Johnson
               "90 Minutes In Heaven" - I'm reading this one now
               "We Are All Welcome Here" Elizabeth Berg
               "Angle of Repose" by Wallace Stegner
               "Going to Bend" by Diane Hammond
               "Shepherd of the Hills" - I have this one ordered and am going to read it before summer vacation
               "At Home in the Heart of Appalachia" by John OBrian
               "The Dreamgiver"

     This is a few of my suggested books. If you have read any of them and want to tell me your view - please leave a comment. I love to hear what others think about books. That's one reason I enjoy my book club so much - I get so many different views from my friends. And we have such great discussions.

     Reading is such an important part of my life. 
I'm so very blessed to have this "hobby"
If you're not a reader, think you may like to be one 
but don't know where to begin - 
contact me and I would love to give you some interesting suggestions!!
