"A good book has no ending."

R. D. Cumming knows exactly how I feel when reading a book; "Geesh, HOW many more pages???"

As my blogmates can tell you, I've never been much of a reader.  I do read magazines, and (sometimes) I do want to read books, but I just can't get "into" them.  Sitting on my nightstand is four such books: Toddler 411 by Denise Fields, Toddlerwise by Gary Ezzo, Eat, Drink and Be Healthy by Walter C. Willett, and Penny Saving Household Helper: 500 Little Ways to Save Big by Rebecca DiLiberto.  Each night, as I contemplate which book to read, I spot the fifth book on my nightstand: Puzzle Baron's Logic Puzzles by Puzzle Baron.  My left brain overtakes my right brain and I just have to complete a puzzle.

Logic Puzzle

Its my new obsession.  In fact, these puzzles have completely taken over my love of magazines (the pictures below shows the months' worth of magazines I keep brushing aside in favor of another logic puzzle).

In the meantime, I'd like to ask Kate (self-described bookworm), Mindy (loves books), or Karissa (corporate librarian) to read and summarize the four books listed above for me. Thanks GIRLFRIENDS! 

Hugs to our followers,

p.s. As a side note: This may sound silly, but Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli is the ONE book that changed my life and I plan to re-read it often.  For anyone looking for a quick read (its a young adult book), check it out.  In fact, my love for Stargirl runs so deep, I think I'll dedicate a post just to it.  Keep an eye out for it!

  1. I call dibs on Eat, Drink and Be Healthy by Walter C. Willett. I will even submit a book report to you, I know how you miss grading :) Logic Puzzles are fun too though, that was a tough one!!!
