I've read Gone with the Wind and Don't Sweat the Small Stuff. Enjoy your books!

My favorite read last week was The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson. Please come see what else I'm reading.

Good luck with the Read-a-thon. I wish I was able to participate but it's a crazy week at work and I'm not sure how much reading time I will get in.

You have some really good books on your list. We were just talking about the John Adams book this weekend - I've heard great things about it.

Have a great week!

Mindy Kaling's book is awesome! I read it and thought it was incredibly cute. Did you see she's going to have a new show on Fox? "The Mindy Project"

Happy reading this week!
