Currently Reading - February 2010

Last week I discussed that I had "Reader's Block". For the life of me I have been reading the books you see below for ages, and I cannot get through not one of them!!!! Two of them are library books and I have been renewing them since January 13th. LOL!! I think I need to conquer each one, one at a time. However my fear is that I am just trying to finish them because I am the type who does not like to not finish a book. I want to get some kind of comprehension out of them being that they all are non-fiction books. After I am finish with them I am going to read me some nice fiction. So please be on the look out for some book reviews in the near future.

BECAUSE I WILL GET THROUGH THESE BOOKS --- SOONER OR LATER..... LOL


Here are the books on my "currently reading" list:

Ms. Trump's book is quite interesting, I am half way through it, and other than her reminding me on every other page how she is not like the Hilton's sisters, I am impressed with her.

When I heard about this book and I read a couple of reviews on it, I could not wait until I got my hands on it so that I could read it. Strangely when I was living in Atlanta I could not find it at any of the libraries I went to. I thought it was going to be one of my amazon.com "buys". So when I moved back home and was looking for another book in my small town library, I was pleasantly surprise when this book came across my eyesight!! I hurried up and checked it out so that I could rush home to get started. That was January 13th. For the LIFE of me, I cannot get into this book and it is very depressing. For some reason I thought I was going to love it, but it has been the total opposite.

I started this book February of 2008, but last year was not a good year in reading. However I still have it on my "currently reading" list and it will stay there until I finish it. I am debating on if I need to start this book over.

Being that Malcolm X is one of my favorite movies and because I have a fascination with people who rises themselves up when they are at their bottom. Also, I think everyone should read his bio because there is so much wrong information about him out there.

This is supposed to be a fun read. I call this book my "purse book" because I keep it in my purse so when I get stuck in a line or anything of that nature I can always have a book handy!!

Another book just like "Shifting", I bought it YEARS ago thinking that I just had to read this book, and I cannot get through it for nothing.

My mom and my lil sis have this thing that on Sunday evenings, they watch Mr. Osteen. One Sunday I was with them and I watched him also. I loved the message he gave that night. It was not the normal preaching AT you method. During the commerical break, they advertise one of his books and I figured that I would go and buy it for my mother. The next day I did, but instead of giving it to her, I kept it for myself (Shhhhhh.....). LOL I am only on chapter 2 and as of right now, I have no opinion.

Someone told me that this book should be every entrepreneur's library. So I did my research on it. Come to find out that it is a very old and popular book. After reading a couple of pages on google books, I decided to buy it. Now I just need to read it.



These last two books....... well lets say that I am helping someone with a course. In their words' "Since you love reading and you are into politics and social issues, I thought you could help me. It really will not be like helping since you like this type of stuff anyway." The person is/was correct, after looking up the books and briefly going through them, they do seem like I will enjoy them. The only thing is....... I have a deadline, and I am not good with deadlines.
