    Sorry, I've been AWOL, but summer is a bad time for me...have to steal early mornings or late nights. Anyway, I am now a working woman again. I am working part time at the deli counter at the supermarket. I know, not very glamorous, but it's a paycheck and it will help my sanity A LOT!!! Hopefully, I'll become more of a regular again once school starts
  2. Hunting High and Low - a-ha
  3. I just finished a short story book called "Redeployment" by Phil Klay. All the stories are told from the point of view of Iraq war veterans who served in different capacities and how they adjust to coming home. It's not blood, gore, PTSD, just well told stories about returning to normal life. 9/10. I also read "The Secret Life of Bees" by Sue Monk Kidd. A girl named Lily, who is haunted by her mother's death and has a neglectful and cruel father, leaves home with her black nanny after the nanny insults some racists in town. They escape to a town that Lily sees written on the back of a picture her mother had. She finds solace with three beekeeping sisters, learns the truth about her mother and comes to terms with her past. 8.5/10

  13. I don't know why that came out as a quote, it was not copied and pasted. If it was lifted from a real review it would be much better written.
  14. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
  15. One of my favorite songs....may he rest in peace
  16. Me again, I have read several books since my last post: Killing Me Softly by Nicci French: Alice is seduced by a mysterious stranger, leaves her boyfriend for him and soon learns that her new man is obsessive and has dangerous secrets 8/10. Sophie's Choice by William Styron: A young writer just recently moved to Brooklyn from the south meets an intriguing couple, Sophie and Nathan. Through his friendship with them, he discovers Sophie's secrets and why she hangs on to the troubled relationship she has with Nathan. I really enjoyed it, but I felt more interested in Sophie's story than the writer's, he just seemed like a wimp. 8/10 The World According to Garp by John Irving: Another writer's story, but this one full of unusual characters and situations. Garp is born to a single mother, marries his first love, suffers infidelity, loss, and violence, but succeeds in creating a close knit family. 8/10
