Would you recommend it? Why it why not?
What are you planning to read next? If no plan, what genre do you think you'll visit?

I am reading "Money Rules" by Gail Vaz-Oxlade. (she is a canadian TV personality who has two separate shows where she helps people sort out their finances and budget)

I like it. I would recommend it. Like she says- if you don't rule your money, your money will rule you.

Next I want to read something fiction.

I'm reading Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling

I am only a few chapters in, but so far it is not my kind of book. Seems to be about the politics of a small town. If it wasn't for my loyalty as a Harry Potter fan I probably would have stopped reading already lol That being said, I will not be surprised if I absolutely LOVE the book by the end, because I have that much faith in her as an author.

After this book I will continue the Bone Collector series by Jeffery Deaver! Loving those!!!

I used to watch a show with Gail Oxlade in it! I forgot what it was called, but it was soooo good. She would go into people's homes & teach couples about budgeting.
They stopped airing it here for some reason.
Tim & I would also be amazed at how much more the families made there as compared to people in the exact same occupation in the US.

I am an avid reader. If I could spend an entire day doing anything I wanted, besides spending time with my William, I would spend the day reading.

I just finished She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb. I read it years ago, when it was first out, and I came across it again. I don't usually read the same book twice, but he is SUCH a talent, I couldn't resist. I highly recommend it. The book's main character is a girl, and you would NEVER know it was written by a man. It is a little dark and sometimes depressing, and I found myself thinking, "Come on, can't anything good happen to this girl?" and then having to remind myself it wasn't real. LOL.

So, I just finished that and now I'm reading something by one of my favorite authors, Elinor Lipman but I don't remember what it's called. I love Jodi Picoult too.

I'm reading Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon. It's the 4th book in her Outlander series; it's historical fiction, with a little romance mixed in. I really like the series so far. I've been reading the series off and on for the past 6 months or so. The books are really long, so I want to read something else when I finish one for a bit.

I got a book of short stories for Christmas that I'll read next. I can't remember what it's called.

It makes me sad, but nothing right now. I bought a bunch of books for $2 each at Books a Million over Christmas break and haven't read any of them. I will though.

I read a lot of "chick lit" and also I really like Crime and murder mysteries, thrillers, etc.

I'm sort of in between right now. I just finished the Virgin River series by Robyn Carr last night. It's good, but predictable, full of romance and sex, but not too over the top. Not usually something I read, but I got sucked in and had to complete the series.

Oh yeah. I guess I should answer my own question. Lol.
I'm reading 11.22.63 by Stephen King. Love it & would highly recommend it to my Sci-Fi girls. It has time travel & action in it. I think most could appreciate that.
I'm going to do some non fiction reading next.

I love historical fiction. I might have to check that out! Thanks!

My reading consists of nursing books (med surg) and microbiology. lol
I rarely get a chance to even read a magazine, but when I do it's US weekly.
I thought about reading 50 shades when I get a chance.

Yes, Till Debt Do Us Part, I love that show! She also has one now called "Princess". She gives glam girls with sugar daddies a wake up call, it's good too.

And yes I do think a lot of the wages are higher up here, but we pay more taxes and have a higher cost of living I believe.

I started Deep Down True by Juliette Fay last night. It's about a divorcee with 2 small kids. I'm only on Chapter 3. It started out kind of slow, but I am starting to like it.

Yes! Til Debt Do Us Part! We used to call it "money money money" because those were the only lyrics in the theme song for the show. Lol. They used to air it Saturday nights, & we'd watch it every Saturday when I was pregnant with Layla. Sigh. Who do I need to talk to to get our show back on the air here?
Americans NEED this, especially now.
Anyway, I'm going to get the book add it to my non fiction list.
I also recommend Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey. He's not for everyone because not everyone is ready to completely change their way of thinking, but if you're ready to get out of the rat race of seeing all your money go out the door before you make it because of debt, he's. your man!

I am reading Proof of Heaven by Eben Alexander M.D., it's his own story (he's a neurosurgeon that had a near death experience. I find it very interesting and I would recommend it. I don't have a plan for what is next, I'm not one to read a TON!
