Becoming Sister Wives. It's the book written by the Brown family who have the show Sister Wives on TLC.

I'll admit I've thought the same thing at times! For some reason polygamy fascinates me. I would never practice but living in Utah it's all around me. I live about 15 minutes away from where the Browns lived in Utah.

Nothing right now, although I wish I was. I love to read!

I'm reading the Beautiful and the D****d by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Exit the Actress by Priya Parmar and Les Miserables by Victor Hugo.

I always have a couple of books going at once. People ask me how I keep the stories separate, but it's not that hard when the stories are really different. I'm having to take pretty significant breaks from Les Miserables, because otherwise it seems like I may never reach the end. I've put in probably 10 or more hours reading and I'm through less than 20% of the book. SOOOOOOooooo LONG.

Edit: LOL, it censored the book title. :giggle:

I read the Sister Wives book a while back, their lives are much more complex than what they show on TV. It was a good story though I keep reading that Christine is unhappy with her role at the current time. I'm not sure that anything will come of that but we'll see.

Currently, I am reading: Happy, Happy, Happy, My Life and Legacy as the Duck Commander by Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty. I enjoy any and all biographies!!

I am reading Full Speed by Janet Evanovich. I have 2 books left in this series then will be moving on to a new one!! I tend to finish a book in a day, possibly 2 if I have to work.... SO, I like series, they feel like they last longer!!!

I am reading the last Sookie Stackhouse book....slowly. Reading triggers my nausea at the moment otherwise I read a few books a week.

Re: What are you reading right now?
 
I just finished Dead Ever After, the last Sookie Stackhouse book and I just started a Sherrilyn Kenyon Dark Hunter book, in addition to What to Expect and the book I got from my ob-gyn.

When I am taking classes and having to read textbooks most nights of the week I tend to find what I consider a good brainless book ;) ( no offense by that I just need something to read that doesn't require much thinking!).

So currently I am reading the 3rd book by Sylvia Day Entwined with you. It is a smut book ;) similar to 50 shades of Grey. It gives me a nice break from my current textbooks which other than my sexuality counseling course is about as exciting to read as watching paint dry (currently Research and Career counseling).

I totally get it. I started watching reality tv because I needed a break from thinking after working 60 hours a week. I sometimes watched it while grading papers because I knew it wasn't enough to distract me, but it made it a little less tedious. So thanks Jake and Vienna...

I'm in various stages of sooo many books that I think I couldn't even list them all~LOL! Some have been put down for quite a while since life has been busy. The first that comes to mind is Edith Schaeffer's _The Hidden Art of Homemaking_. I LOVE THIS WOMAN! She died not long ago, and her son wrote a tribute to her.

This is the son that has written books against the faith, and that was hard for me for a long time. But after reading his tribute, how full of love and grace his Mom was, how he would receive a letter from her followers saying his writings would kill her and REPENT and then receive one from her on the same day requesting ten more signed copies and that she was so proud of him, just ~AH!~.

I am currently reading through the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. This is my first readthrough, though I did listen to the books on tape with my husband the first time. Amazing how much more you catch on the 2nd turn through. I'm currently closing in on the end of the 7th book.

I almost never read---I listen to audiobooks. Right now I'm listening to one of my favs: Anne of Green Gables books. I'm in the last chapter of Anne's House of Dreams. It's such a sad book at moments :(

Dunno what I'll read after this....probs I'll read (what I mean to say is listen to) Twilight again. Or I might go through some Radiolab or This American Life radio shows. I get the podcasts on my iPod.

I don't know what I would do without my iPod....probably go crazy! It's kinda fun living in an imagination when your doing piddly things around the house :)

Erin, if you get a chance, one of the best audiobooks I've ever listened to is "The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch. SO good.

The other one that my dh and I loved listening to was "The Know It All" by AJ Jacobs, where he vows to read the entire Encyclopedia Brittanica from A to Z. Both are awesome.

Re: What are you reading right now?
 
Just starting three books by Liberty Savard, the first being _Keys to Understanding Soul Ties, Soul Power, & Soulish Prayers_. They were recommended (and sent!) by an old friend for overcoming family relationship woes. I've been wanting a good devotional through pregnancy, because I'm feeling so far away from God, though I know in reality He's never far away....
